In March, popstar Taylor Swift kicked off her "Eras Tour" in Glendale, Arizona! The Glendale shows were such an event that the mayor chose to rename the city "Swift City" for the duration of the March 17th and 18th concert dates.
A lot of secrecy surrounded the "Eras Tour," minus a few sneak peeks that Swift posted to her Instagram. Fans were nervous and excited to see which of their favorite songs made it to the setlist. When Swift took the stage on March 17th, Swifties and non-Swifties alike were shocked at the grand production Swift planned for this tour. The "Eras Tour" is full of practical sets and props as well as gorgeous visuals on the huge LED screens filling the back of the stage.

Even more surprising was the length of the performances. Based on Swift's previous "Reputation Tour," fans expected a show that lasted around 2 hours. However, when the "Eras Tour" concerts began, Swift showed how that was definitely not the case this time around. With a setlist 44-songs long, the average show on the "Eras Tour" is about 3 hours! Swift performs songs from 9 of her albums: Lover, Fearless, Evermore, Reputation, Speak Now, Red, Folklore, 1989, and Midnights. To make each night a little different, Swift also performs surprise songs acoustically!
Here is the list of songs Swift has surprised fans with so far:
Night 1- "mirrorball" and "Tim McGraw"
Night 2- "this is me trying" and "State of Grace"
Night 3- "Our Song" and "Snow on the Beach"
Night 4- "cowboy like me" and "White Horse"
Night 5- "Sad Beautiful Tragic" and "Ours"
Night 6- "Death By A Thousand Cuts" and "Clean"
Night 7- "Jump Then Fall" and "The Lucky One"
These surprise songs have made fans anxious as they anticipate whether or not a song they want to hear will be performed before their show date. Check out these fans' reactions when they find out the surprise songs for Night 6!
Swift continues her tour in Tampa, Florida tomorrow, April 13th with openers beabadoobee and GAYLE! Fans have began speculating what surprise songs Swift will sing in the first shows since the news of her alleged breakup with longtime boyfriend Joe Alwyn broke out.
