Taylor Swift Dress Rehearsal a Fundraiser for Tornado Victims 

Jordan Strauss/WireImage(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- Taylor Swift is opening up the final dress rehearsal for her upcoming Speak Now tour to fans, as a fundraiser for the victims of last week's tornadoes in the southeastern part of the U.S.  Thirteen thousand Taylor fans will be able to purchase tickets to the rehearsal, which takes place May 21 at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.  Taylor's been rehearsing there for five weeks.

"I wanted to do something for the families affected by the damage,” Swift said in a statement. “I’ve never opened a rehearsal to the public before, but I felt that inviting my fans to the last rehearsal for the Speak Now Tour would be a great way to raise money."

Ticketing information for the event, called Speak Now...Help Now, will be released Monday. Proceeds will go directly to help the victims.

The tour itself kicks off May 27 in Nebraska.
