First, the quartet (plus Lorde) were photographed wandering around Catalina. Two weeks later, Swift and Haim were topside in Maui and rocking matching Bill Murray shirts. Fans can expect the Hefe-filtered exploits of Swift and Danielle, Este and Alana Haim to continue into 2015 as Swift announced Sunday that Haim have been added as special guests for select dates on the singer's upcoming 1989 World Tour.
"Haim is joining the 1989 Tour. This is not a drill," Swift notified her legions of followers across social media.

The cities where Haim will serve as special guest are East Rutherford, New Jersey, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Foxborough, Massachusetts, Nashville and St. Louis, plus a five-night stand at Haim's hometown of Los Angeles' Staples Center.
