Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour” has finally begun, and Swifties worldwide are ecstatic because she has finally performed some of the songs fans have been dying to hear since then!
To say Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour” was massive is an understatement; Taylor Swift’s tour is monumental for some. Performing more than 40 songs in almost four hours is a hugely difficult feat in and of itself, which is why Swifties refer to her as “the music industry.”
She performed surprise songs from her discography that were missing from her setlist during her two-day show in Arizona, temporarily dubbed Swift City.
Taylor stated about performing a new song at each show:
“The plan, the goal, would be to play different songs every single night and never repeat one. Right? Right? So that when you heard one on this tour, you would know it’s the only time that I was going to play it in the acoustic set, unless – caveat – unless I mess it up so badly that I have to do it over again in some other city. Send your best wishes to me that I don’t do that.”
Despite being the first track on her “Red” albums, Taylor surprised everyone by performing a live version of “State of Grace” on her second day in Glendale, Arizona’s State Farm Stadium. On both re-releases, the Arena rock song reached No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.
What better way to reflect on her musical career than to perform her first single on the first day of her “The Eras” tour? Swift’s emotional debut single “Tim McGraw” was the only song from her debut album to cut her tour setlist.
She described the song she released 17 years ago as follows:
“I was thinking about tonight and how special this is. So I thought it might be kind of fun to play the very first song I ever put out.”
“This me trying,” the ninth track from the Grammy-winning album “folklore,” which has already been certified Silver in the United Kingdom, finally gets a live performance after three years. On the second day, she performed the song in Glendale, Arizona.
Still from “folklore,” “mirrorball” has finally made its live debut by Swift since its release. According to Vogue, Swift’s mental state during the COVID-19 quarantine was reflected in the song. Her autobiographical songwriting themes were absent from the song.
