Taylor Swift launched his highly anticipated “The Eras Tour” (get tickets HERE) with an instantly iconic 44-song, three-hour concert at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Friday night.
In keeping with the name of the tour, Swift’s setlist touched on all the eras of her carer, as performed at least one track from all 10 of her studio albums. Additionally, as it marks Swift’s first tour in five years, the show also marks the live debut for several songs featured on her latest collection of albums, including Loving, MOONLIGHT ROMANCE, foreverand About midnight.
He opened the show in 2019’s Loving by performing “Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince,” “Cruel Summer,” “The Man,” “You Need to Calm Down,” “Lover,” and “The Archer.” Next, he moved in 2008 There is no fearbegan with the first performance of the album title in over a decade, followed by “You Belong to Me” and “Love Story.”
As the night goes on, Swift jumps between different eras: 2020’s foreverthen 2017’s reputationthen 2010’s Speak Nowthen 2014’s redthen 2020’s MOONLIGHT ROMANCEthen 2014’s 1989. Although he only played one song — “Enchanted” — from the 2010’s Speak Nowwhich will probably make room for a 10-minute version of the red“All Too Well” he played just moments ago.
At the end of the set, Swift announced that she would play a different acoustic song at each show of the tour. For night one in Phoenix, that means “mirrorball” from MOONLIGHT ROMANCE.
Swift closed the show by performing selections from her latest album, About midnightincluding “Lavender Haze,” “Anti-Hero,” “Midnight Rain,” “Vigilante Shit,” “Bejeweled,” “Mastermind,” and finally “Karma.”
Accompanying the marathon setlist is an impressive stage production that includes a life-size Loving house, a large catwalk, multiple costume changes, choreographed set pieces synced to each performance, fireworks, and large LED video screens. At one point, he appeared to dive on stage and swim “underwater,” before reemerging on a platform to play “Lavender Haze.” At another point, he burned the Loving house
