What songs has Taylor Swift added to the new Eras Tour setlist? Here's the full official new Eras Tour setlist and all the changes she's made so far.

Listen to this article

It's safe to say that Taylor Swift 's Eras Tour has well and truly surpassed every single expectation we had. The Eras Tour officially opened its doors in Glendale, Arizona on March 17th where Taylor performed songs from all 10 of her albums.

Since then, Taylor has released her eleventh album, ' The Tortured Poets Department ', and has now added seven of those songs to the setlist too. But what songs have been cut to make room for the new tracks?

On May 9th in Paris, France, Taylor changed the entire Eras Tour setlist as fans know it. Popular songs have now been removed and the eras section order has been moved around.

Here's all the songs in Taylor's Eras Tour setlist, including every song featured in the show, how many songs she plays, every single surprise song and all the 'The Tortured Poets Department' tracks that have been added to the setlist.

Plus, all the updates to the setlist and what to expect for the upcoming European Eras Tour dates.

How many songs does Taylor Swift play on the Eras Tour setlist?

The average Taylor Swift concert used to be around 2 hours long but The Eras Tour is a whole different beast... The concert is a whopping 3 hours and 15 minutes long, and Taylor performs a huge 45 tracks within that timeframe.

Not all the tracks are performed in full – some are shortened versions. There's also a couple of additional little interludes that pop up throughout the show.

For context, on the Rep tour, Taylor performed 19 tracks in total, including several mashups that featured some of her older songs. For The 1989 World Tour, she performed 18 songs, while 17 songs were performed on The Red Tour and the Speak Now World Tour.

Taylor now only has two more legs of the Eras Tour to complete: Europe and the second U.S. and Canada leg.

Taylor has 'reset' the surprise song list, which means anyone attending a show in 2024 can anticipate hearing a song she's already performed. She previously stated that she will only play each surprise song once during the tour, unless she messes one up.

There's also no rules for Taylor repeating songs from Midnights as surprise songs, which means fans may get to hear the likes of 'You're On Your Own Kid' and 'Snow on the Beach' again at some point in the future.

We'll update this article with every Surprise Acoustic Song – and every surprise song that she will play again – after every show.

Will Taylor Swift change the Eras Tour setlist to include The Tortured Poets Department?

Will Taylor Swift change the Eras Tour setlist?

Aside from a few song changes, the Eras Tour setlist remained the same throughout the 2023 shows and every show up until the release of 'The Tortured Poets Department'. During the first Paris show in May 2024, Taylor changed the order of the setlist, removed six songs and added seven new ones from 'TTPD'.

Fans attending the European shows might end up hearing Taylor perform ' Castles Crumbling ' with Hayley Williams at some point, as Paramore will be supporting her throughout those tour dates. Unlike Phoebe Bridgers and HAIM, who joined Taylor on stage to perform 'Nothing New' and 'No Body, No Crime' respectively on the nights they were support acts, a 'Castles Crumbling' duet might be more likely to appear as a surprise song.

Taylor will finish her European leg in London in August 2024, before returning to North America in November 2024. It's possible that she may make more changes to the final leg of the show.

What are Taylor's most performed songs on tour?

Before she embarked on The Eras Tour, Taylor’s top 3 most performed songs are ‘Love Story’ (491 times), ‘Our Song’ (404 times) and ‘You Belong With Me’ (381 times).

Of course, almost all of Taylor’s most performed songs are from her first two albums. As the list goes on, the 'Speak Now' bops, 'Red' bangers and '1989' hits start to weave their way in.

If you’re wondering what Taylor’s most played songs from her first five albums are, here’s a break down:

  • Taylor Swift : ‘Our Song’, ‘Tim McGraw’ and ‘Picture To Burn’
  • Fearless: ‘Love Story’, ‘You Belong With Me’ and ‘Fifteen’
  • Speak Now : ‘Sparks Fly’, ‘Mean’ and ‘Mine’
  • Red : ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ and ‘Red’
  • 1989 : ‘Shake It Off’, ‘Blank Space’ and ‘Out of the Woods’

Taylor has only had the chance to perform songs from Reputation on the Reputation Stadium Tour so far, but ‘Ready For It?’, ‘Delicate’ and ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ take the top spots when it comes to live performances of the Rep tracks.

Due to the cancellation of Lover Fest, Taylor hasn’t been able to perform Lover on a tour setting. Folklore, Evermore and Midnights will also be making their tour debut on the Eras Tour.

Taylor Swift Brings Out Aaron Dessner for ‘The Great War’ and ‘Mad Woman’ at Tampa Bay Shows

By Daniel Kreps

Daniel Kreps

Taylor Swift brought out her frequent collaborator and the National member Aaron Dessner for the live debut of “The Great War” Friday night at The Era Tour’s second show at Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium.

Dessner was spotted in attendance by fans at the previous night’s show on Thursday, and while he didn’t take the stage that night, he joined Swift Friday to play the Midnights: 3am Edition track during the acoustic “Surprise Songs” portion of the setlist.

“Everybody’s watching the greatest performer on Earth do the greatest show of all time,” Dessner told the crowd after being introduced by Swift, who joked that “The Great War” “took on a new meaning” when the song was used to describe the battle fans endured trying to buy tickets for The Eras Tour .

Here Are All the Songs in ‘Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour’ Movie

Find out which songs from the tour setlist were cut

eras tour great war

Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour” concert film premiered in October to an enthusiastic crowd of celebrities, fans and of course Taylor’s team, with the star of the film in attendance. As one of the first to see the film, TheWrap got the scoop on which songs from the wildly popular tour made the film, and which songs were cut.

After making speeches in multiple auditoriums for separate audiences, Swift, clad in a sky blue floral-patterned dress (probably in theme for “1989 (Taylor’s Version) with her hair pinned up like the signature bob she had when that album first came out), sat back to enjoy the film’s premiere in one of the IMAX screening rooms with her background vocalists and publicist Tree Paine.

The documentary runs 2 hours and 48 minutes, slightly shorter than Swift’s three-hour setlist and performance, which she has brought to 17 of the United States so far in addition to Mexico. The European leg will kick off in November, with Swift returning for 15 more U.S. shows in October and November of 2024.

Taylor Swift and Aaron Dessner

Taylor Swift was joined by her frequent collaborator Aaron Dessner for the live debut of “The Great War” in Tampa, Fla., on Friday (April 14).

The pop superstar brought out The National member, whom she referred to as the “collaborator version of a soulmate,” during the surprise songs acoustic portion of her setlist on the second night of her Eras Tour stop at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium.

All the Surprise Songs Taylor Swift Has Performed on The Eras Tour (So Far)

“You guys are watching the greatest performer on Earth do the greatest show of all time,” Dessner told the sold-out crowd.

Trending on Billboard

During the show, Swift also amended the rule about the surprise songs acoustic portion of her set, telling concert-goers that she will allow herself to perform certain songs as many times as she likes during future dates of The Eras Tour .

“Basically when I started the tour, I was like, ‘In the acoustic section, I am never repeating a song. I’m never doing songs more than once.’ But now I’m like, ‘There are so many songs I want to do more than once,’” Swift said in a fan-captured clip .

She added, “So, I’m making a little caveat to the rule, which is that if [a song] is on Midnights , I can do it however many times I want, because Midnights is the most accurate picture of my life to date.”

The superstar also made a couple of changes during her first Tampa concert on Thursday, including switching out a few of her costumes and adding Red (Taylor’s Version) cut “Treacherous” and the Speak Now title track to the setlist as the pair of surprise songs for the evening.

Taylor swift's surprise songs from night 2 in liverpool, including a calvin harris and rihanna throwback, share this article.

Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour continued its international journey on Friday night in England (afternoon in the United States) with the second of three shows in Liverpool. The now 14-time Grammy winner will be touring almost non-stop for the entire year, and at each show she adds two “surprise songs” to her 44-song, three hour plus set list.

For the second night in Liverpool, Swift went with a mashup of “This Is What You Came For” which she co-wrote with Calvin Harris, paired with “Gold Rush” from Evermore on guitar. On piano, she played “The Great War” from Midnights mashed up with the single “You’re Losing Me (From the Vault) .”

Live from Paris: Taylor Swift adds 'Tortured Poets' songs to Eras Tour in France

PARIS, France — The Chairman jump-started her tour after a two-month hiatus, and anticipation was high over whether Taylor Swift would incorporate her 11th era album into the Eras Tour set at La Défense Arena on Thursday.

She did and then some.

Swift extended the set list by one track to land at 46 songs. But many changes were made along the way. She added a new era for "The Tortured Poets Department," cut a handful of songs and rearranged most of the eras including combining the sets for "Folklore" and "Evermore."

She also debuted a number of new outfits along the way.

Delivering all the updates were Bryan West, the USA TODAY Network's full-time Taylor Swift reporter, from inside La Défense Arena in Paris, with Swiftie and trending reporter Anthony Robledo assisting from his desk.

We hereby present the minutes from the first Eras Tour meeting in Paris, France.

'Midnights' set follows secret songs

Swift stuck to her original set list for the "Midnights" era by singing "Lavender Haze," "Anti-Hero" and "Midnight Rain." She ended the night with a triumphant rendition of "Karma" as usual.

'loml' is second secret song

Fans got one more taste of "The Tortured Poets Department" when Swift played the heartbreaking song "loml" on the piano during her secret set.

'Paris' is a secret song, of course

Swift started her secret set with "Paris," a bonus song from her "Midnights" album.

'Tortured Poets' set list

Swift played these songs from her newest album:

  • "But Daddy I Love Him"
  • "So High School"
  • "Who's Afraid of Little Old Me"
  • "Fortnight"
  • "The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived"
  • "I Can Do It with a Broken Heart"

New 'Tortured Poets' set is here

Toward the end of her show, Swift officially launched the long-awaited “The Tortured Poets Department” section of the tour after the 1989 era.

Swift performed the track “But Daddy I Love Him” off the April 19 album for her ecstatic fans while wearing a new beige dress with cursive letters.  

A road spiraled down the catwalk in an animation to initiate the era. The background animation showed a deserted road while large cages animated and fell on the road.

“Oh my god you should see your faces,” she sang.

She quickly segued into a brief moment of “So High School,” the beloved track speculated to be about her romance with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. She quickly performed the powerhouse anthem “Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me.”

Swift switched to “Down Bad” before seamlessly transitioning into the lead single “Fortnight.” Stage production recreated an asylum that resembled the music video for the song with Post Malone, recorded harmony played concluding the song. 

Dancers entered the stage in a marching band style format playing drums as she performed the wrath-fueled song “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived.” Jan Ravnik and Kameron Saunders then revived Swift in a jazzy skit to set up “I Can Do With A Broken Heart,” where she debuted another new outfit. 

“The End” text displayed wrapping up the era that’s likely here to stay. Other beloved tracks like “Guilty As Sin” and “Florida!” did not make the cut.

New '1989' outfit

Swift never goes out of Style. During her “1989” set, she debuted a new, sequined outfit of blue and pink. Her sparkly shoes matched with a different colored heel on each. For the bridge of “Blank Space,” the crowd started chanting in Sydney, Australia, “Syd-ney” as a nod to the 1989 World Tour concert movie where Swift would chant the name of the city she was in after hitting a pole with a club two times. Singapore followed the chant and Taylor Nation tweeted they want every city to incorporate the fan-fueled chant.In Paris, thousands chanted “Par-ee,” the French way to say the capital city.

Swift made no cuts to the "1989" set.

Four songs cut from 'Folklore' and 'Evermore'

The new set list cut four tracks from the "Folklore" and "Evermore" eras:

  • "'Tis the Damn Season"
  • "Tolerate It"
  • "The Last Great American Dynasty"

The combined set included eight songs altogether and wrapped up with "Willow."

'Folkmore' set debuts

Swift revealed she merged the 2020 pandemic albums “Folklore” and “Evermore” into one section. She told fans she wrote “Folklore” to represent spring and summer with “Evermore” representing fall and winter in what she always considered sister albums.

“On the Eras Tour we have now reunited the sisters, combined them into one chapter,” she said. “You can call it whatever you want as long as you promise to sing ‘Champagne Problems’ with me.”

'Folklore' set: 'Cardigan' makes the cut

Many fans had speculated "Cardigan" would be cut from the set list. But Swift actually moved it to the top of the "Folklore" set.

Up next: 'Reputation'

Swift kicked off her fifth set with "Ready for It?"

Another surprise: 'Speak Now' era comes fourth

Swift updated her "Speak Now" set with an intro dance featuring Raphael Thomas and eight other dancers wearing flowy purple dresses. She then sang "Enchanted."

Fan favorite track "Long Live" was cut from the set list.

Order of eras changed

After a fairly routine "Fearless" set, Swift altered her concert by including the “Red” era third instead of the expected “Evermore” set. Previously, "Red" came fifth.

With a new shirt that read “This Is Not Taylor’s Version,” the singer performed "22" and showed her audience that they needed to leave any expectations at home. 

The relocated "Red" set included the same four songs: "22," "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," "I Knew You Were Trouble" and "All Too Well (10-Minute Version)."

Beflore playing “All Too Well (10 Minute Version),” Swift talked about bringing all of her favorite memories to France.She did her 2019 “Lover” live show here but hadn’t brought a tour to the country since the Speak Now World Tour 13 years ago.“I cannot thank you enough. I’m so moved," she said.

Follow along with set list changes here .

First set list change

Swift cut "The Archer" from her "Lover" set before beginning her "Fearless" set in a silver and black minidress as opposed to her classic gold one. A graphic showed her "Lover" house with a new addition in the attic for "The Tortured Poets Department." Her "Fearless" set remained the same with "Fearless," "You Belong With Me" and "Love Story."

'Je m'appelle Taylor'

In her monologue before playing the song "Lover," Swift said the night would span 18 years of music. Previously, the concert covered 16 years. Get ready for a "The Tortured Poets Department" addition some time tonight.

She confirmed the tour would still go era by era, and also spoke about how Paramore is a band she idolized since she was a teenager. She ended with some French: "Je m'appelle Taylor."

First new outfit

Swift debuted a new, orange bodysuit and jacket for the "Lover" set.

Snippet of 'Tortured Poets' in intro

A snippet of the song "The Tortured Poets Department" was included in the intro music Swift kicks the concert off with. Is she foreshadowing other changes ahead? It seems likely.

Taylor Swift takes the stage

Swift took the stage about 8 p.m. in Paris (2 p.m. ET) to relaunch her Eras Tour in Europe. She kicked it off with a countdown clock and the Lesley Gore song "You Don't Own Me" as usual. Then she began her "Lover" set with "Miss Americana."

Paramore covers Blondie, Talking Heads in Paris set list

At the Paris show Thursday, Paramore energized fans with eight tracks including their cover off the upcoming “Stop Making Sense” tribute album out May 17 featuring artists like Miley Cyrus and Lorde.

Debuting a blond mullet, lead singer Hayley Williams encouraged fans to dance without fear of judgment ahead of Swift’s performance.

“Enjoy your time with Miss Taylor, we will see you next time,” Williams said. 

Paramore's set list included:

  • "Hard Times"
  • "Burning Down the House" (Talking Heads cover) 
  • "Caught in the Middle"
  • “Brick by Boring Brick”
  • “The Only Exception”
  • “That’s What You Get”
  • “Ain't It Fun”
  • “This Is Why”

Paramore begins their set

At about 6:45 p.m. in Paris (12:45 p.m. ET), Paramore began their set, officially restarting the second year of the historic Eras Tour. Lead singer Hayley Williams sported a new, blond mullet hairdo.

Paramore opens European leg of Eras Tour

The American rock band is joining Swift on her European leg of 51 shows. Paramore also opened the show for two nights in Glendale, Arizona, in 2023. Their setlist then included nine songs:

  • "This Is Why"
  • "That’s What You Get"
  • "The Only Exception"
  • "Still Into You"
  • "Rose-Colored Boy"
  • "Misery Business"
  • "Ain’t It Fun"

Where to watch the Eras Tour livestreams

The Eras Tour is one of the first tours that has been followed, globally, by thousands of fans on digital platforms. Fans dedicate part of their concert experience to livestreaming as Swift performs. Livestream Queen Tess Bohne has spearheaded the "Great War" to find fans going live on social media and broadcasting a custom show to tens of thousands of fans almost every night on her account @tessdear .

On YouTube, user @TaylorSwiftHockeyBro also livestreams the 3-hour show, and on Twitch, @folkleric is a host fans follow.

There is also an app, Swift Alert , that notifies fans who only want to watch certain eras like the acoustic, surprise set. The app also sends out push alerts if there are any major announcements.

  • "Taylor Swift" (debut album): "Mary's Song" and "A Perfectly Good Heart"

Taylor Swift's Eras Tour: All the Surprise Guests So Far

Fans at these shows had some good karma

eras tour great war

Taylor Swift 's Eras tour is straight out of our wildest dreams.

On her 60-stop tour , the 12-time Grammy Award winner has not disappointed — from the 10-studio-album setlist, to the outfits, to the surprise guests. So far, Swift has brought out six artists to perform on the stage with her, and fans have been enchanted by each and every one.

Already looking ahead, fans have been taking their guesses at who else might show up onstage — Swift has songs that include Keith Urban (who already saw a show but did not perform), Lana Del Rey , Bon Iver, The Chicks , Kendrick Lamar , Zayn Malik and Ed Sheeran , just to name a few. When Haim opens the tour later this summer, many are hoping they will join Swift to sing "No Body No Crime," which they collaborated on for Evermore.

Here is all you need to know about the Eras Tour surprise guests so far.

Marcus Mumford

Just a week after kicking off her tour, Marcus Mumford — the Mumford & Sons frontman — joined Swift to sing "Cowboy Like Me" at her March 25 Las Vegas show. On the song in the Evermore album, Mumford sings only harmonies, but attendees of the concert got to hear him sing a verse. Swift recorded several songs from Evermore in Mumford's home recording studio during the height of the pandemic, and he joined in on the track after stopping in to listen one day.

In a TikTok post after the show, Mumford shared the duo’s performance, captioning it, "you're a bandit like me @taylorswift."

Aaron Dessner

Three Eras Tour stops have included Aaron Dessner . The first was the April 14 show in Tampa, where Dessner and Swift sang "The Great War" — also one of the two surprise songs of the night. He came back for a second night in a row to perform “Mad Woman” from Folklore. A month later, Dessner joined Swift again at one of her Nashville shows on May 7, where they sang  "Would've, Could've, Should've" in the pouring rain.

Phoebe Bridgers

Indie singer Phoebe Bridgers opened for some shows in the Eras tour — and on her first night as an opener, Bridgers returned to the stage to sing “Nothing New” with Swift, from Red (Taylor’s Version) (From the Vault) . For the rest of the May shows, the song held a permanent spot on the setlist, so Bridgers joined Swift for shows in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New Jersey.

Jack Antonoff

Any Swiftie knows that Jack Antonoff plays a major role in the making of many of Swift's songs. During her first New Jersey show on May 26, Fans were elated when she brought Antonoff out to sing Reputation hit "Getaway Car" and play their guitars, as the making of the song was documented in Swift's 2020 Miss Americana documentary.

On May 27, the day Swift announced the release of a remix version of "Karma" featuring Ice Spice , the rapper made an appearance at the end of the New Jersey show to perform the song alongside Swift. Ice Spice ended up sticking around, joining Swift for all three of her New Jersey concerts. 

Maren Morris

Chicago fans were in for a treat when Swift brought one of her "favorite artists," as she said that night, Maren Morris , onstage on June 3. For the first time, the duo performed their song, "You All Over Me," from Fearless (Taylor’s Version) (From the Vault) as they strummed their guitars. 

Morris took to TikTok after the show to share the performance, writing "Thank you so much for having me @Taylor Swift . Your generosity to me in these last 7 years is insurmountable and I love you so."

She added on Instagram , "We finally got to play 'You All Over Me' and I won't ever be shutting up about it."

Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour: A guide to surviving “the great war”

By Sarah Gilley, Copyeditor & Sophia Sullivan, Editorials Editor

It is a good time to be a Taylor Swift fan. In the last six months, her fans have held release parties for her new album and were “enchanted” by her re-recorded albums. A tour was even announced, which covers her whole career to date.

After a tumultuous affair with Ticketmaster, fans of Swift are ready to “shake it off” at a show with good friends, cute outfits, and lots of fun.

Singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is coming to Tampa in April, and here’s what you need to “be ready for it.”

When to arrive:

Whether you are going to the April 13, 14, or 15 show, the concert will begin at 6:30p.m. However, it is important to leave plenty of time for the drive there and parking. (Parking can be purchased here).

If you are interested in buying tour merchandise, you may want to arrive before the doors open in order to get in line. The gates will open at 4:30p.m. so that Swifties can get there early!

What to wear:

As you may have seen on social media, people will be “dressed to the nines” for the Eras tour. Some people will be “bejeweled” in sparkles, sequins, and boots, and others will be in jeans and a Swiftie t-shirt! Some may even elect to dress as a certain “era” or copy one of Swift’s past looks.

eras tour great war

Whatever you wear, make sure it is something you feel comfortable and confident in. You wouldn’t want your night to be ruined by a wardrobe malfunction!

What to bring:

Each venue is different, but luckily for those going to the Tampa shows, we have got all the information you need. Following all the rules and policies are especially important; you don’t want to miss out on seeing Taylor Swift. (All the policies can be found here).

If you’re thinking about bringing a bag, make sure that it is a clutch purse no larger than 4.5 inches by 6.5 inches. You won’t have to bring a “cardigan” because you’ll likely get warm. Hair ties are an absolute must, we don’t want anyone to get too hot while they are “shaking it off.”

Make sure your phone is fully charged and ready to take as many pictures and videos as your heart desires. If you can fit it in your clutch, pack a portable charger too!

“Stay, stay, stay” safe:

Staying safe is always going to be the top priority; if coming alone, make sure you are aware of your surroundings. Swift has taught us it is good to be “fearless,” but do not compromise your personal safety.

If arriving with a group, remember the buddy system. It is “nice to have a friend” so you can continue to sing your hearts out, even if it is in line for the restroom.

Go with your favorite Swifties:

Swift’s music carries a strong message of being with people you love. Whether that be your family or your best Swiftie friends, be sure to go with someone who you will enjoy your time with.

If you choose to go alone, you may not be completely “on your own, kid.” There is a good chance you can even make friends with the people in your section. Being a Swiftie means being a part of a fantastic community, and we are all here to support one another!

Don’t be afraid to sing along, dance it out, and live in the moment. While we all love to take pictures and videos during concerts, taking a step back and savoring the moment is the perfect way to go.

No matter where your seats are, you won’t “need to calm down” because Swift makes sure that everyone, no matter their seats, will have the best experience.

“Long story short,” this will be a night that we will remember “all too well” (the ten-minute version, of course).

Never in their “wildest dreams” did fans think they would get to enjoy all of Swift’s discography. Yet, Swift promises to deliver and create a magical night for everyone.

Taylor Swift Announces End of Her Eras Tour Era: “I Think I Once Had Hobbies”

eras tour great war

By Kase Wickman

There’s long, and then there’s “perform a very physical three-hour-plus concert 150ish times around the world throughout two calendar years.” The latter is where Taylor Swift finds herself, announcing onstage at her 100th Eras Tour performance that her December 2024 run in Vancouver, Canada will be the end of the tour.

While introducing the 10-minute extended version of “All Too Well” (speaking of long) Thursday evening in Liverpool during the first of her three planned shows there, Swift announced the news.

“You know, this is actually the 100th show of the show,” she said, saying that it “blows my mind.”

“This has definitely been the most exhausting, all-encompassing, but most joyful, most rewarding, most wonderful thing that has ever happened in my life,” she said. But all good things must come to an end, or so we hear. “This is the very first time I’ve ever acknowledged to myself and admitted that this tour is gonna end in December,” she said. “Like, that’s it.

“And that feels like so far away from now,” she added. “But then again, it feels like we just played our first show on this tour. Because you have made this so much fun for us that we wanted to do a hundred shows, 150-something shows that we have on the whole tour.”

She went on to admit that “this tour has really become my entire life. Like, it’s taken over everything. I think I once had hobbies, but I don’t know what they were anymore. Because all I do when I’m not on stage is, like, sit at home and try to think of clever acoustic song mashups and think about what you might want to hear. So when I’m not on the stage, I’m dreaming about being back on the stage with you guys.” She thanked the fans for their effort and told them that “I appreciate every single ounce of effort that you put in to be with us.”

Notably, Swift has dropped the (Taylor’s Version) re-recordings of two of her older albums, Speak Now and 1989 , during the tour’s run, plus the super-sized 31-track album The Tortured Poets Department . Oh, and she released that record-breaking concert film Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour . And she nabbed a historic fourth Album of the Year Grammy . That to-do list of hers has gotten plenty done, and there’s still time yet for more of the singer's signature surprises.

Though she sings in “Gorgeous” that she’ll “stumble on home to my cats,” Swifties know that there’s someone else the singer has been spending time with offstage, and he also has whiskers, despite being human. Swift stayed up late Thursday night to virtually join in on celebrations for boyfriend Travis Kelce as he and the Kansas City Chiefs accepted their latest championship hardware during the ring ceremony for their 2024 Super Bowl win. While Swift couldn’t do a repeat of February’s post-game celebrations (smooches, lip-sync serenades , and all), she hopped onto the Instagram Live cast of the ceremony to watch Kelce put a ring on it and dropped some choice all-caps comments in real-time.

“JOINING THE PARTY FROM LIVERPOOL LET’S GOOOOOOOO,” she commented on the stream, throwing in some “AHHHHHHH” and “YESSSSSSSS” to make her feelings clear. Eventually, she decided that it was time to get some sleep, presumably to prep for Friday night’s show and have those dreams about being onstage that she talked about. “Gotta go to sleep it’s so late here love you guys❣️❣️❣️,” she wrote in parting.

The Eras Tour continues its European run through August, before Swift takes a several-week break. In mid-October, she concludes the tour with stops in three U.S. cities, then a final jaunt to Canada to close out the run, which began in March 2023. Then, perhaps, she will rediscover her hobbies.

For anyone who hoped that the Eras Tour might get an extension into its third calendar year with added dates in 2025, Taylor Swift has disabused them of that notion, affirming that her global trek really will come to a close with its currently scheduled final dates in North America in December of this year.

Swift made the proclamation while performing the 100th date of the tour on the first night of a weekend engagement in Liverpool on Thursday.

“And that feels like so far away from now,” she added. “But then again, it feels like we just played our first show on this tour. Because you have made this so much fun for us that we wanted to do a hundred shows, 150-something shows that we have on the whole tour.

“And I think that  this tour has really become my entire life. Like, it’s taken over everything. I think I once had hobbies, but I don’t know what they were anymore.

You planned what you were gonna wear, you memorized lyrics, you got yourselves here, you figured out parking, you figured out transportation. … And just know that I appreciate every single ounce of effort that you put in to be with us, (as) this tour reaches triple digits of of shows.”

Although Swift’s camp has not released any box office grosses from the tour, industry experts believe the total gross will surpass $2 billion by the time it wraps up in December. The closest runner-up will remain Elton John’s “Farewell Yellow Brick Road,” which grossed $939 million over a five-year span.

Swift’s European tour will wrap up Aug. 20 with the second of two runs in London’s Wembley Stadium. From there, she is scheduled to take time off from the road before returning to U.S. stadiums in November for the first time since late 2023, doing shows in just three U.S. cities — Miami, Indianapolis and New Orleans — before the tour concludes in late November and early December with six shows in Toronto and three in Vancouver. The last date is scheduled in the latter Canadian city for Dec. 8.

Taylor Swift's Eras Tour to End in December, Singer Announces in Heartfelt Speech

eras tour great war

By Sara Delgado

Taylor Swift performs at Scottish Gas Murrayfield Stadium on June 07 2024 in Edinburgh Scotland.

Taylor Swift's Eras Tour era is officially coming to an end. The singer herself announced the news, giving yet another heartfelt speech mid-concert while playing a show at Liverpool's Anfield Stadium.

On June 13, 2024, to commemorate the 100th show of her Eras Tour, Taylor Swift got candid about the impact this tour, the biggest and most successful of her career, has had on her, revealing the chapter will come to an end with 2024.

"This is actually the 100th show of the Eras Tour," Swift told the crowd at Anfield Stadium. "That doesn't feel like a real statistic to me because this [tour] has definitely been exhausting, all-encompassing, but most joyful, most rewarding, most wonderful thing that has ever happened in my life."

"The celebration of the 100th show, for me, means [that] this is the very first time I've ever acknowledged to myself and admitted that this tour is going to end in December," Swift continued. “That feels so far away from now, but then again, it feels like we just played our first show on this tour.”

Swift officially kicked off her Eras tour on March 17, 2023, at Glendale's State Farm Stadium in Arizona. Since then, the show has traveled across America, Asia , Australia , and Europe , with a second North American leg scheduled for the fall of 2024. After the release of her long-anticipated 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department , Swift's Eras tour underwent a slight revamp to include new songs and costumes.

As of now, the last concert on the Eras Tour is scheduled to take place on December 8, 2024, in Vancouver, Canada, which will mark the 152nd stop on the tour overall. It's unclear if she'll announce any encores for the same month or if this will be the actual last show of the tour.

"You have made this so much fun for us that we wanted to do 100 shows, 150-something shows that we have on the whole tour, and you know, I think that this tour has really become my entire life," Swift said in her Liverpool speech.

"[This tour] has taken over everything. I think I once had hobbies, but I don't know what they were anymore," she continued. “Al I do when I'm not onstage is sit at home and try to think of clever acoustic song mashups, and think about what you might want to hear and just, really, when I'm not on the stage, I'm dreaming about being back on the stage with you guys.”

Swift wrapped up her speech by thanking fans for "every single ounce of effort" put in to make it to a show and making the tour reach "triple digits of shows" before going on to perform "All Too Well (10 Minute Version)."

It’s been a long time coming…

If you’re an anxious Swiftie hoping to make the most of your Eras Tour experience (especially after surviving the Great Ticketmaster War), then this post is for you. 

In this Eras Tour guide, I’m going to give you a breakdown of must-knows and tips for attending based on my experience attending Paris Night 2 in the VIP 7 section, starting with general Eras Tour tips, as well as ideas for what to wear to the Eras Tour, and common Eras Tour chants and crowd interactions to catch you up to speed.

… Are you ready for it?

Save this list of Eras Tour Tips for Later!

You’ll be very glad you did.

1. Wear ear plugs 

It sounds counterintuitive, but hear me out: the Eras Tour is a LOUD experience. Beyond just the regular loudness of concerts, you will inevitably have some ultra passionate Swifties screaming bridges into your ear… which is fun until you go home and have ringing ears for weeks.

Luckily, there’s an easy solution in ear plugs. Ear plugs not only protect your ears from damage but also help drown out the noise around you (i.e. violent Swiftie screaming) while allowing you to hear Taylor and the band better. It’s really a win-win and I’m SO glad I decided to wear ear plugs. Plus, worst case scenario is you hate them and take them out. Definitely better to go with than without so at least you have the option.

A lot of people on TikTok recommended the Loop Experience ones here but since I don’t go to concerts that often, I wanted to spend less.

These are the cheapest ones I found with good reviews. They definitely helped SO much! 

NOTE: I found that if I shoved them all the way in my ear like an earbud, I could hear my own singing voice all too well… so instead I wore them in a way that they were stood up in my ear instead, which helped drown out the noise around me without making my own voice super clear.

eras tour great war

2. Look up rules specific to your venue 

Speaking especially to international Swifties, often stadium and arena rules vary a great deal, so even if you’ve been to an Eras Tour show before, it’s important that you read rules closely for every venue you attend!

Just to illustrate how extreme these differences can be: in Paris you could bring (non clear) bags up to 10L capacity, whereas in Stockholm there’s a bag ban in place.

So, be sure to always check specific rules for your venue and don’t make any assumptions about what is and isn’t allowed.

This has two major benefits: 1) it can help you get through security more smoothly (by not accidentally bringing prohibited items) and 2) it can also help you navigate your rights as an attendee.

In France for instance, they are legally obliged to provide free water anywhere that food is served. This means that free water is available at all French shows. At the Paris shows for instance, they had cups (that required a one euro deposit) that you could use to get free water. There was also security personnel handing out small cups of water throughout the show as well. 

eras tour great war

NOTE: It’s important that you do take venue rules seriously. I’ve seen some really bad horror stories from Swifties who were caught out by arena rules, like a girl who brought a point & shoot camera, only to have all her photos deleted by staff. Not just the concert photos – all of them! So yes, don’t take any rules for granted – they can vary easily based on venue. 

3. Do lots of local research to plan your arrival

If you’re reading this right now, I probably don’t need to preach to you about the advantages of research when it comes to the Eras Tour, but I will emphasize one thing: the more specific your research, the better!

Sure, reading tips from the US shows might help you get a head start in planning, but i f you’re attending a second or third night in a city, then you have the advantage of having thousands of Swifties do the leg work for you on Night One, so take advantage!

From experience, it seems that many Swifties are happy to document their experiences/share tips on social media in detail(especially TikTok) so be sure to search up “Eras Tour ____ [your city]” to get the scoop on what the process for your city whenever possible.

Pay attention to crucial details like…

  • Arrival times for floor tickets/VIP
  • Venue restrictions on what to bring
  • Best ways to reach the venue 
  • Different venue entrances based on section, etc. 

eras tour great war

4. Make a plan for your arrival

What time should you arrive at the Eras Tour? This question comes up a LOT and depends on a variety of factors, including…

  • The type of ticket you have (seated vs. floor)
  • Whether or not you are VIP
  • Designated venue time slots
  • How much you want to get barricade (e.g. front row on the floor)

eras tour great war

Generally speaking, if you have seated tickets, then you do not need to worry too much about arriving early UNLESS you want time to get merch and soak in the experience.

If you have floor seats however… oof! If you want any chance at getting barricade (e.g. front row), then two things need to be true:

  • 1) You have a VIP ticket
  • 2) You are able to camp out WELL in advance to secure your spot in line

How early do you need to start lining up? Based on some TikTok sleuthing here, it seems the Swifties who were near the very front of the queue on Night One in Paris started camping out THREE DAYS early (sleeping in a tent outside the venue).

In another TikTok , a Swiftie who arrived at 9:45am got barricade about 1/3 down the catwalk.

So, I hope that gives you a rough idea of the timings you would need in order to secure the best spots for the show. Again, this will depend on your specific venue and show, but in any case just know that it’ll require a lot of dedication.

For me personally, I got there relatively late at 3:10pm, and ended up in the centre left section maybe 20 rows deep (if I were to estimate). Based on this TikTok, the Swiftie who got barricade in my section (VIP 7, centre front) arrived at 2am and was 10th in line.

eras tour great war

In any case, it’s important that you set realistic expectations, and if your goal really is to be as close to the front as possible on the floor, then you need to make a plan that may or may not include…

  • Tents/comfortable things to sit on
  • Sun protection
  • Plenty of water and snacks
  • A bathroom game plan
  • Portable chargers
  • Games/entertainment

eras tour great war

5. Dress comfortably and cooly 

I’ll be talking about what to wear to the Eras Tour a little more later but I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to find an outfit that will help keep you comfortable and cool! 

Inevitably, you’ll be in a “can’t stop won’t stop movin” kind of mood throughout the concert, which means you will get hot. You’re also very likely to be packed and close to tons of other people (especially on the floor) so wearing a super sweaty outfit will not be ideal.

NOTE: If you have floor tickets, I wouldn’t advise bringing a big bulky jacket because the crowd tends to shift a lot throughout the concert so keeping track of something you’ve left on the floor can be a huge pain. Wear something light, comfortable, and something you can easily sit in for a few hours, as (depending on when you get in) there’s quite a bit of sitting involved.

Especially important to consider are shoes. Whether you have a floor ticket or an assigned seat, you’ll be spending a lot of time on your feet, so comfort is key! I personally wore flat sandals and had zero regrets. 

Of course, comfort varies for everyone! My friend wore platform sandals and was fine – the most important thing is bringing shoes that YOU know are comfortable (based on past experience).  The Eras Tour is definitely not the place to be breaking in new shoes. 

eras tour great war

6. Pack as light as possible

Again, you’ll be dancing and smushed up against a lot of other people, so the less you back the better. During my concert, I saw a lot of Swifties attempting to dance while carrying a giant tote on their shoulder – definitely not ideal if you can help it!

Plus, some venues won’t allow bags anyway, so the less you bring the better.

That said, some random things to include in your packing list are…

  • Tissues in case of crying (likely)
  • Portable charger (if allowed)

eras tour great war

7. Strategize your food for the day

Yes, I know you’re excited for the show, but planning your pre/post concert meals is key to survival. 

Once you get inside the venue, there will be few opportunities for food, apart from some snacks (venue-dependent). In Paris for instance there was popcorn and fries for sale, which aren’t the most satisfying things to keep you fuelled for a long day.

What I would recommend is a protein rich meal that makes you feel good, since protein keeps you full for longer.  I’d avoid eating junk that makes you feel blergh because you need fuel to last until the end of the night! 

The same logic goes for ensuring you have food afterwards. The Eras Tour usually wraps up just after 11pm, and depending on your commute home/back to the hotel, you might not get an opportunity to buy food… at which point you’ll probably be starving, so remember to have a backup plan for post-concert munchies. Even something simple like instant noodles, bread, etc. can be a lifesaver!

eras tour great war

8. Buy merch before the show (not after) and inside the venue 

At least from what I noticed in Paris, the merch line-ups were MUCH longer outside of the arena than inside, so I’d advise getting merch once you’re inside the venue.

Also try to buy your merch in advance of the show rather than after, as sizes can run out.

eras tour great war

9. Have a bathroom plan

This tip is more relevant to floor ticket Swifties, but make sure you have a plan in place for the bathroom! The closer you get to the start time of the show, the tougher it will be for you to leave your spot and go to the bathroom, because people will assume you’re trying to budge your way to the front.

My tip? Go to the bathroom as soon as you enter the venue and… try not to drink too much water.

If you do end up going to the bathroom out of necessity, be sure to memorize your route when going to the bathroom and try to inform people as you go that you’ll be coming back that way – anything that will help you squeeze back in.

And if you’re with friends, try to have an agreed upon signal to show where you are (as a beacon of sorts so they can find their way back to you), whether it’s a hand signal or a prop that you hold up.

NOTE: Don’t be shocked if people on the floor are aggressive about you pushing past them to get back to your spot. When you’re on the floor, it’s impossible to tell who is trying to cut their way to the front and who is legitimately just trying to return to their spot. My friend even says someone shoved her on the way back!

10. Learn some of the inside jokes/chants /rituals

Swiftie culture and lore both run DEEP… so it should come as no surprise that there’s a lot of cute inside jokes and audience participation bits that take place throughout the concert.

Is it mandatory to learn all these before the show? Absolutely not – you’ll have fun regardless… but it’s sort of fun to feel ‘in the know’ when certain chants and moments happen.

While I only went to one show, I’ve heard from international Swifties that the European concerts are less involved with these chants, but still – there will be plenty of people getting involved, so here are some to keep in mind:

  • When ‘Applause’ plays before the show, this is a sign that the countdown to showtime will start right after, so get REALLY excited and clap along to this song… because once it ends you’re only 3 minutes away from seeing Taylor!
  • Heart hands during Fearless
  • During ‘Delicate’, shout “1, 2, 3… Let’s go bitch!” before the first verse
  • During ‘Don’t Blame Me’, shout “Take me to church, Taylor!” at the end of the bridge (right before she does the big “Oh Lord, save me, my drug is my baby” the precedes the iconic ‘ooohhhhhhOOOoohh”
  • Right before the first lyric of ‘Style’, shout “What time is it Taylor?” so that she answers “Midnight”
  • During the bridge of ‘Blank Space’, chant your city name between each line
  • During Anti-Hero, sing “Taylor you’ll be fine” after the line “Did you hear my covert narcissism I disguise as altruism”

If you want more, this amazing Swiftie has compiled a thorough spreadsheet of various chants… along with their origins. Gosh I love this community.

11. Brush up on basic concert etiquette

If this is your first concert, then it’s helpful to remember that concert etiquette is very much a thing, and includes things that you might not consider once you’re in the heat of the moment.

So, keep the following in mind:

  • Remember that there are people behind you, so keep your arms and phones down for as much of the show as you can, especially if you’re taller
  • Don’t push and shove – remember that everyone is here to have a good time
  • Use your words – if someone is obstructing your view or otherwise bothering you, odds are they’re not doing it on purpose! A polite tap on the shoulder to let them know will be infinitely more effective than shoving or rolling your eyes to those around you
  • Respect the order of arrival and don’t push to the front or else you’ll be making a ton of enemies

Random bonus tip: For a more pleasant experience, surround yourself with older Swifties. I’ve found that younger attendees were definitely the ones lacking the most concert etiquette (due to lack of experience, etc.) plus older fans are less likely to be filming Taylor/themselves the entire show.

eras tour great war

12. Have a plan for photos/recording 

On that note though, I totally understand that capturing the night is just… part of the concert experience these days, so here are some extra Eras Tour tips in regards to capturing photos and videos:

  • Turn down your brightness/exposure to get a crisper shot
  • Prioritize capturing clips you can’t find online (e.g. photos/clips with you in them)
  • Make sure you have enough storage on your phone
  • Bring a power bank (if the venue allows it)

eras tour great war

13. Make a game plan for getting home

The Eras Tour is super exciting experience that (for some) can take the entire day, so the last thing you want after the best night ever is to stress about how to get home. This is why it’s super important to have prepared for the journey home in advance.

If you’re taking public transport…

  • Plan in advance and try to get tickets ahead of time if you can. With most public transport systems, you should be able to buy a ticket in advance and just validate it when the time comes, so try to figure out a solution like that instead of waiting in line with thousands of others.
  • Memorize the walk from the station to the venue because your data might not work properly right after the show (with thousands of people walking out at once)

If you’re driving…

  • Park near an exit 
  • Drop a pin where you park 
  • Take photos that help you remember how to find your car

What to Wear to the Eras Tour 

If you’ve been stuck on Swiftie TikTok like me, you’ll no doubt have seen some videos of incredible Eras Tour outfits, which might skew your perception a little as to just how many people dress up.

But let me ease your mind a little! 

While there were of course some fans in attendance dressed up in epic Taylor inspired outfits, there were just as many (if not more) wearing normal clothes. So if you don’t have the time or budget to get a new outfit for the tour, don’t worry!

Think of it more as an opportunity to have fun and dress up rather than an obligation. 

As is fitting with the ‘Eras’ tour, the most popular thing to wear to the show is something that suits your favourite era. Here are some ideas to help you mastermind the perfect Eras tour fit:

  • Taylor Swift (Debut): Cowboy hats, cowboy boots
  • Fearless: Gold/silver, sparkly, fringe dresses, sequins
  • Speak Now: Purple, gowns, romantic vibes
  • Red: Red (of course), high waisted fits, bowler hats
  • 1989: Pastels (especially blue), fun preppy style, seagull/cloud motifs
  • Reputation: Black, dark green, dark sequins, snake motifs
  • Lover: Pastel pink, blue, purple, heart and butterfly motifs, tie-dye
  • Folklore: Loose braids, long flowing dresses, boho vibe, cottagecore grandma
  • Evermore: Neutrals, flowy pieces, plaid
  • Midnights: Sparkly and ‘bejeweled’, dark blue/purple, star/celestial motifs 
  • Tortured Poets Department : Black/white, literary motifs 

eras tour great war

Alternatively, you can dress up based on your favourite song or lyric, e.g. dressing up as a ‘Mirrorball’, an ‘Archer’, etc. One of the ideas I toyed with was dressing up as a key lime green dog (as mentioned in the Last Great American Dynasty), but I’m glad I opted not to since this song was cut from the setlist! And in hindsight it was kind of a niche and ridiculous idea.

Finally, another option is to create an outfit that somehow incorporates all the eras, through including all the different colours and motifs.

The sky is really the limit on this one, so definitely have fun with it!

My Eras Tour Experience at Paris Night Two (May 10, 2024)

This is probably oversharing but just in case you want to hear exactly how my Eras Tour experience in Paris went (with time stamps), then read on! Do keep in kind though that timings and experience will 100% vary depending on your venue, so the info below should be used for loose reference purposes only. 

Long story short: my friend Sophie and I booked a hotel within walking distance of the arena for the night of the concert so that we wouldn’t have to battle all the crowds on the train home. We stayed here and everything was fine for a night – we even had a little glimpse of the Eiffel Tower! 

VIP ticket holders who don’t live in France couldn’t get their boxes shipped to them, so we had to pick up our VIP boxes at the venue. We arrived a few days early in advance of the show due to pure paranoia that our transport would get disrupted somehow, but we were staying in Central Paris so didn’t get a chance to collect the VIP boxes until the day-of. We caught a taxi from central Paris to La Défense and arrived around 12:45, at which point there was already this massive line-up:

According to our tickets, VIP ticket holders could actually do this as early as May 7 (two days before the first show) so by the time we went, there was actually no queue. Sophie walked right in, grabbed our boxes, and we were good to go! At this point, we realized we needed to eat something before we checked into the hotel (annoyingly a 10 min drive from the venue), so we went into Billy Billy and gorged ourselves with carbs and cheese. 

eras tour great war

We then caught an Uber to our hotel, checked in, got changed, and immediately headed back to the venue, joining the VIP 7 line-up (which was already moving) at 3:20. According to our tickets, they would be opening VIP doors at 3:45 so there wasn’t long to wait! 

The line moved fairly quickly as we were ushered to the specific line/entrance for our VIP section. Honestly, the time passed really quickly since we had lots of fun outfits to look at and photos to take.

We entered the arena at pretty much exactly 4pm, at which point our bags were quickly checked and we were given our bracelets! 

eras tour great war

Our first order of business was the bathroom, which was a really smart move in hindsight because trying to go after we got our places on the floor would have been VERY stressful (Sophie did it and seemed truly traumatized). After our toilet break, we made our way to the floor which at 4:05pm looked like this:

eras tour great war

It was pretty stressful trying to decide which part of the floor to head to, but we opted for the centre and I don’t regret it! Everyone was sitting down at this point and overall being pretty respectful – people were holding spots on the floor for their friends and others who asked, and people would take turns going to the bathroom and getting food/drink (at our show there were fries and popcorn you could buy).

Things got a bit more chaotic once the General Admission crowds started to roll in. These are the attendees who probably camped for hours, if not overnight, for the best spots in line.

So, unsurprisingly, many of them were trying to get as close to the front as they could, often shoving past others who arrived before them. This is sadly something that happens – you can’t expect everyone to be abiding by perfect concert etiquette! 

This ‘forward charge’ was especially evident as we got closer to the opening act, since a lot of free space kind of opened up after the sitting crowd stood up. This resulted in a lot of people pushing through from the back, often refusing to move even when confronted.

Again, this isn’t ideal, but just a situation to prepare yourself for! I saw quite a few arguments erupt over this, usually to no satisfying conclusion… after all, there are no marked spots, so it’s not like security can get involved. Just stand your ground though and keep in mind that there will inevitably be people trying to push forward and get closer, even throughout the concert.

While we were waiting, they showed clips from different Taylor Swift music videos, along with behind the scenes clips, though never playing full songs. 

Paramore came on stage around 6:45pm (15 minutes later than anticipated), and sang the following set list:

  • Burning Down the House
  • Still Into You 
  • Caught in the Middle
  • Rose Coloured Boy
  • The Only Exception
  • That’s What You Get
  • Ain’t it Fun
  • This is Why

Overall, I was surprised by how many songs I knew just from TikTok or general radio play. They were a solid opening act but a lot of people didn’t seem to be paying attention or dancing along, which I thought was a shame. 

Anyways, after the Paramore set concluded, everyone sat back down and we had a few more songs played, all of us of course waiting for ‘Applause’, which is the final song that plays before the countdown begins for Taylor to come on stage. 

The countdown began just before 8pm (about 30 minutes later than anticipated) and the show began almost at 8pm on the dot!

I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you how amazing the show was – it was only the second night of them doing the Tortured Poets’ Department section and it was INCREDIBLE – so theatrical and dramatic. Especially given that I had the foresight to do a TTPD inspired outfit, I loved every second.

Still, I have to say, as a 5’3” girl I really couldn’t see much of the stage, and instead resorted to watching most of the show from the big screens or through people’s phones. As you might expect, lots of people were recording throughout the whole night, which blocked a lot of the view, but I guess the flipside is I got to see things through their screens quite well! You win some, you lose some.

Our surprise songs for the night were:

  • Is It Over Now x Out of the Woods 
  • My Boy Only Breaks His Favorite Toys

The show concluded at around 11:10pm, at which point we proceeded on foot back to the hotel. We were lucky that we had some fast food options nearby so we got to eat something before passing out in bed after a truly incredible night! 

Overall, I would say if you can book a hotel close to the venue, do it, because the convenience of just walking back without getting on a stuffy train, bus or otherwise getting stuck in traffic was the BEST.

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this little write-up and that it helped relieve some of your anxieties about going to the Eras Tour. Again, things will vary a lot by venue and show but I hope this was at least somewhat helpful!
