Taylor Swift era’s tour


Leah Feitshans, Staff Writer

Taylor Swift’s 6th international world tour, ‘The Era’s Tour’, has completely set off all expectations for this singer. With 52 shows total, the singer’s individual shows last for over three hours, surpassing her usual concert time of 2 hours. The show consists of performances of 44 songs divided into 10 acts that portray Swift’s studio albums conceptually.  


 The tour was described by Swift as a “journey through all of my musical eras”, with her 10 albums: Taylor Swift (self-titled), Fearless, Speak Now, Red, 1989, Reputation, Lover, Folklore, Evermore, and lastly her most recent album, Midnights. Swift made different glamorous outfits and sets throughout all acts and even some different outfits for different shows. And she even is said to try to play two special secret songs for each show, having a unique part with every show to remember.  


During the selling for the tickets, media outlets described demand for tickets at the Eras Tour as “unprecedented” and “astronomical”, with 3.5 million people registering for Ticketmaster’s Presale program for the U.S. leg. Even though the website crashed immediately after the presale in November, over 2.4 million tickets were sold that day. And over 70,000 people attended Night 1 in Glendale, Arizona, which was legally changed to ‘Swift City’ for the day only by the city itself.  


The last tour that Swift ever did was the Reputation Stadium tour, missing her other 3 albums Lover, Folklore, and Evermore that she didn’t get the chance to perform because of Covid. While performing ‘Willow’ and ‘Champagne Problems’ from her pandemic-era album ‘Evermore’, Swift asked her audience, “is it just me or do we have a lot to catch up on?”  


There were a bunch of nostalgic moments throughout the whole tour, with Swift singing through her ‘Fearless’ era with ‘You Belong with Me’ and ‘Love Story’, which are fan favorites. She also sang ‘Tim Mcgraw’ on the piano, a song from her earliest era in 2006.  


And as the concert came to its final and current era, Swift played various songs from her record-breaking 2022 album ‘Midnights’, including ‘Anti-Hero’, ‘Lavender Haze’, ‘Mastermind’ and ‘Bejeweled’ and closed out the show with the high energy hit ‘Karma’. It’s safe to say we are incredibly lucky to see Taylor go through all her eras once more in a well-deserved show from a very talented singer.
