Taylor Swift kicked off her hotly anticipated “Eras Tour” on March 17 in Glendale, Arizona, revealing her set list and outfit changes to the packed stadium for the first time. It’s been five years since Swift’s last tour, and in that time she’s released four more albums, so there was a lot to cover.
“I can’t even go into how much I’ve missed you,” Swift told 80,000 fans from the stage.
She added, “I don’t know how to process all of this and how it’s making me feel right now… let me start by saying you’re making me feel fantastic.”
Later, Swift stopped to say to the audience, “I’m trying to tell you I love you and I’m babbling.”
Her set was reportedly split into sections for each of her 10 albums, though they were not in perfect chronological order. She began with tracks from her 2019 album Lover, singing “Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince” followed by “Cruel Summer.”
The pop star had 16 backup dancers, two stages, and costume changes throughout the night. For her Midnights hit “Lavender Haze,” she rose on a platform in the middle of the stadium.
Later, she performed “Look What Made You Do” over a an array of versions of herself projected on screens behind her.
On the stage were some constructions, like a tiny hut covered in moss for songs from her album Folklore.
She also did a chair routine later in the performance, and devoted special time to her full 10-minute version of “All Too Well.”
For her big hit rumored to be about ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal, Swift wore a red overcoat while fake snow fell around her as she sang.
And don’t forget this silver suit look by Versace:
