Taylor Swift Launches Epic Eras Tour With 44-Song Setlist

Taylor Swift returns to the stage with a three-hour, 44-song show in Phoenix, launching her highly anticipated Eras Tour.

Taylor Swift fans, rejoice! The pop superstar has returned to the stage with a bang, kicking off her highly anticipated Eras Tour in Phoenix, Arizona on Friday night. Swift wowed a crowd of around 80,000 fans with an epic three-hour, 44-song show, marking her first tour since 2018.

The Grammy-winning artist promised fans a journey through all of her musical eras, and she certainly delivered. The setlist featured individual sections for each of her ten albums, including “Taylor Swift,” “Speak Now,” “Evermore,” “Folklore,” “Lover,” “Reputation,” “Red (Taylor’s Version),” “Fearless,” “1989” and “Midnights.”

The concert showcased Swift’s greatest hits, including “Shake It Off,” “Blank Space,” “Love Story,” “All Too Well (10 Minute Version),” and “I Knew You Were Trouble.” She even performed a power ballad, “Enchanted,” from her third studio album, “Speak Now,” though fans were disappointed that only one song was included from that album.

Swift performed the entire show without taking a break, backed up by 16 dancers, multiple set pieces, pyrotechnics, and at least 13 costume changes. She also took a dive and appeared to swim across the stage in one of the show’s stand-out moments.

The Eras Tour spans the U.S. and will conclude on August 9 in Inglewood, California. The tour sold a record-breaking 2.4 million tickets on its first day of sales, the most for any artist in a single day. Despite the success, the tour’s presale was plagued by Ticketmaster’s ticketing chaos, which resulted in millions of fans being unable to secure tickets after waiting in the Ticketmaster queue for hours.

But that didn’t dampen Swift’s spirits, as she gave an unforgettable performance for her fans in Phoenix. The reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, with critics praising the singer’s energy and showmanship. As she continues on her Eras Tour, fans can expect more of the same from the pop icon.
