We all knew when Ms Swift hit the stage again it was going to be a killer tour but was anyone prepared for what we actually got… three hours, 44 songs and over a dozen costume changes? Oh, plus the ten minute version of All Too Well, yes we screamed!

It’s been five years since Taylor Swift last took to a stage and in that time she’s created four new albums one which won a grammy for Album of the Year, along with her two re-recorded albums and released some never before heard songs from the vault.

Taylor has promised her fans a show that is: “a journey through all of my musical eras”. Fans were so eager for tickets they managed to crash ticketmaster when they went on sale for the US dates and still managed to break the record for most amount of tickets sold by an artist in a day at 2.4 million.

The multi award winning artist took to the stage March 17 and 18 in Glendale Arizona, which was aptly renamed Swift City for the two nights Tay Tay would be performing to the near 80,000 people.

So as we wait for Ms Swift to announce some European dates what can we expect from Taylor’s The Eras Tour?

The 3 hour 15 minute set was split into sections, one for each of her 10 albums charting her success from country princess to pop star chart topper and rock star to folk crooner.

They didn’t fall into a chronological order but had an organised feel to them in that it portrayed a story on stage for her adoring fans.

She opened the show dressed in a diamond encrusted onesie singing a fan favourite Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince, before following it with the popular Cruel Summer which gained recognition following its inclusion in the soundtrack for amazon limited series The Summer I Turned Pretty.


She continued on with four more songs from Lover before entering her Fearless era dressed in a country singer get-up and draping the stage in era appropriate decorations and then effortlessly transitioning to her folky tunes from lockdown album Evermore where she debuted the live versions of songs like Tis The Damn Season, Marjorie and Tolerate It.

The show boasts insane production value including 2 stages, a catwalk that appears as a swimming pool thanks to some incredible graphics, over a dozen costume changes that also differ each night as well as 16 dancers to take the performance value to the next level. Taylor decided to use her sound activated light bracelets again for this tour to create an atmosphere many artists try to replicate at their own shows.

At the closing notes of Tolerate It, snake scales appeared on the screen making it clear that the Reputation era was next up with songs like Ready For It, Delicate and Look What You Made Me Do making an appearance, but it was Taylor’s performance of Don’t Blame Me that caught everyone’s attention, making it a moment to watch at her upcoming shows.

Fans of the Speak Now album may feel hard done by with only one song (even if it is one of the best songs) from the album appearing in the setlist. Her performance of Enchanted included an acoustic guitar leading into a full band for the chorus, while Taylor stood front and centre in a sparkly floor length ballgown.

The Red Album marked the halfway point of the show with songs like 22, We are Never Getting Back Together and I Knew You Were Trouble but it was the 10 minute version of All Too Well that had fans screaching as Taylor played the opening chords to the song she supposedly penned about her ex Jake Gyllenhaal. She appeared in a red jewel encrusted long coat and short combo that just added to the pure jaw dropping experience of the song.

For the folky songs of Folklore Taylor appeared on stage in a long purple dress inside a moss covered what can only described as a shack which was previously seen during her performance at the 2021 Grammy’s. Her performance of Vigilante Sh*t saw Taylor go full on Burlesque, from her outfit to her dance moves she danced on and around a chair while having the time of her life.

Midnights is the final era of the night with Anti Hero and Lavender Haze kicking off the section and she finally closes out the show with three fan favourites Bejewelled, Mastermind and Karma .

We can’t wait for Taylor Alison Swift to announce some Irish tour dates just so we can scream along to Enchanted, dance our little hearts out to shake it off and stare in awe at the Mastermind performance. Get ready Swifties, Tay Tay is coming!
