Are you ready for this? Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour is finally here.
The 52-date trek kicks off Friday night in Glendale, Ariz., at State Farm Stadium with openers Gayle and Paramore. This is Swift’s first tour since the Reputation Stadium Tour in 2018, as her 2020 Lover Fest was canceled before it even started due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, Swift has released three studio albums — ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’ in 2020 and ‘Midnights’ in October 2022 — in addition to re-recording ‘Fearless’ and ‘Red’ (both with bonus tracks) in 2021.
Swift promised that this run would be “a journey through all my musical eras,” prompting Swifties around the world to speculate on what that will mean for the tour setlist. Will she sing the hits from each of her 10 albums in chronological order, or mix them up to tell a completely different story? Only time will tell. Either way, the Eras Tour is shaping up to be something out of its fans’ wildest dreams – those who were able to get tickets, that is.
The overwhelming demand for tickets when they went on sale in November caused Ticketmaster to crash, disappointing hundreds of thousands of fans. The tour broke the record for the most concert tickets sold by an artist in one day with 2.4 million, and the Ticketmaster debacle even led to a congressional hearing on the lack of competition in the music industry. Ticketing. Long story short, those who see Swift perform tonight are on holy ground — and others will just have to put up with it.
