Taylor Swift kicked off her highly anticipated Eras Tour on Friday night at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, and Swifties everywhere were ecstatic to finally see the singer back on stage after a three-year hiatus.
The 52-date trek promises to be a journey through all of Swift’s musical eras, and fans were eager to see just what that would entail for the tour’s setlist. Would she perform hits from each of her albums chronologically, or would she mix it up to tell a completely different story? As it turns out, the Eras Tour setlist was a perfect mix of both.
Swift opened the show with “Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince” from her 2019 album “Lover,” before launching into “Cruel Summer” and “The Man.” The audience was treated to hits like “You Need to Calm Down,” “Lover,” and “Love Story,” before Swift switched gears to perform tracks from her latest album, “Midnights.”
Fans were delighted to hear classic tracks like “Fearless” and “You Belong With Me,” while also being treated to newer songs like “Tis the Damn Season” and “Willow.” Swift even performed a few deep cuts, like “Marjorie” and “Champagne Problems.”
The setlist had a perfect balance of upbeat anthems like “…Ready for It?” and “Shake It Off,” and emotional ballads like “All Too Well (10 Minute Version)” and “My Tears Ricochet.” Swift also performed an acoustic version of “Mirrorball” and “Tim McGraw” as a nod to her early country roots.
Overall, the setlist was a perfect representation of Swift’s musical journey so far, and fans left the arena feeling thrilled and fulfilled by the experience.
The Eras Tour has been highly anticipated since its announcement, and it’s clear that Swift has not disappointed. The tour promises to be a highlight of the year for music fans, and we can’t wait to see what Swift has in store for the rest of her shows.
