Wayne and Lisa Price are currently in America where they will watch the 25-year-old twice in concert before flying to Canada.

They have already seen her five times this year including shows at Manchester, Scotland, Amsterdam and Germany and will see her perform in Nashville and St Louis before flying out to Toronto.

Lisa wasn’t a Taylor fan until I started to enjoy her music back in 2010 but now she is as big a fan as me. We are superfans and get a real buzz from watching her perform. Taylor is so talented. She writes all her own material and is brilliant on stage. She is not manufactured at all like some of the acts."

Wayne has even started his own fan site called taylorfansuk.co.uk to share his enthusiasm and meet like-minded fans.

Also he hopes his dedicated site might bring him one step closer to meeting Taylor face-to-face. So far the closest he has got to the real thing is seeing her in concert and meeting her base player in Amsterdam.

Research from StubHub, a ticket marketplace, revealed Taylor Swift is the most popular female pop artist in the UK for British men.

Taylor was catapulted onto the world music scene back in 2006 with her self-titled debut album and since then has had numerous number ones and earned millions of dollars.
