All You Need To Know About Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour

Taylor Swift’s ongoing adventure, The Eras Tour, has thrilled audiences with its promise of unforeseen tracks at each performance.

Dedicated Taylor followers are well aware of her penchant for incorporating unexpected songs in her tour playlists. This tradition dates back to The Red Tour and even stretches further to the Speak Now World Tour era, considering the surprise covers she graced her fans with during that period.

The tour is now in full swing, beckoning back the element of surprise. With 45 setlist entries already, Taylor has a vast selection of over 200 songs (!!) to choose from for her surprise segments.

Every show will feature two impromptu acoustic performances from Taylor. By the end of the 2023 leg, Taylor had treated fans to an additional 124 songs, excluding duplicates or covers.

Upon completion of her 2023 Eras Tour dates, Taylor announced a complete refresh of the surprise songs list. Starting in February 2024, she began infusing mashups into the acoustic section.

In 2023, Taylor delivered an additional 124 tracks from her personal catalog as unforeseen melodies. This encompasses 19 from Red (Taylor’s Version), 17 from Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), 16 from 1989 (Taylor’s Version), 15 from Fearless (Taylor’s Version), 11 from Midnights, 11 from Taylor Swift, 10 from Reputation, 10 from Lover, 8 from evermore and 6 from folklore.

Additionally, one soundtrack piece (‘I Don’t Wanna Live Forever) and one supplementary tune not of her own (‘I miss you, I’m sorry’ with Gracie Abrams) were presented.

The Eras Tour live performance footage was captured on August 3rd, 4th and 5th, and all six unexpected melodies she performed during those displays will be incorporated in The Eras Tour (Taylor’s Version) on Disney+.

By performing two impromptu tunes each evening, it’s nearly guaranteed that she will deliver the majority of them before concluding the entire tour. Taylor has officially affirmed that she has reset the selection for the 2024 dates, implying that attendees of the Eras Tour internationally will probably encounter some repetitions as well as those she has yet to showcase.

There’s still a plethora of tracks that Taylor has the opportunity to play. Here are all the tunes she has not yet showcased as surprise performances:

  • Taylor Swift: ‘Mary’s Song (Oh My My My)’, ‘A Perfectly Good Heart’
  • Fearless (Taylor’s Version):The Way I Loved You’, ‘Change’, ‘Superstar’, ‘We Were Happy’, ‘That’s When’, ‘Don’t You’, ‘Bye Bye Baby’
  • Speak Now (Taylor’s Version): ‘Foolish One’
  • Red (Taylor’s Version): ‘Girl At Home’, ‘Ronan’, ‘Babe’, ‘Forever Winter’, ‘Run’
  • 1989 (Taylor’s Version): ‘Sweeter Than Fiction’
  • Reputation: ‘I Did Something Bad’
  • Lover: ‘London Boy’, ‘Soon You’ll Get Better’, ‘It’s Nice To Have A Friend’
  • Folklore: ‘Epiphany’, ‘Hoax’
  • Evermore: ‘Happiness’, ‘Long Story Short’, ‘Closure’
  • Midnights: ‘Paris’, ‘Glitch’

Taylor’s all-new album The Tortured Poets Department is expected to drop on April 19th, which will uncover whether she plans to present those tracks as surprise numbers.

In addition to the mentioned album tracks, there is a range of stand-alone and soundtrack songs that Taylor could include: ‘Crazier’, ‘Only The Young’, ‘Carolina’, ‘I Heart?’, ‘Beautiful Eyes’, ‘Beautiful Ghosts’… And naturally, ‘Macavity’ and ‘Christmas Tree Farm’.

There’s also the slight potential that she may decide to perform the tracks she’s been featured in, possibly even in collaboration with special guests: ‘The Joker and the Queen’, ‘Two Is Better Than One’, ‘Renegade’, ‘Both of Us’, ‘Gasoline’, ‘Birch’, ‘Highway Don’t Care’ and ‘The Alcott’.

At the inception of The Eras Tour, Taylor disclosed two principles regarding playing surprise tunes multiple times. Regulation 1: If she blunders, she’s qualified to replay it. Regulation 2: Midnights melodies are excluded, and she can enact them “regardless of how many times I want…”

Nonetheless, in February 2024, she validatedThe aforementioned regulation is now obsolete. She will perform any tracks she desires, as many times as she wishes.

Hence, if you’re attending a London performance in August, or catching one of the final shows in Vancouver, and are anticipating the rendition of ‘You’re On Your Own, Kid’? The likelihood of that happening is now quite high.

Below is a compilation of all the songs Taylor has delivered multiple times during the Eras Tour until now:

  • ‘You’re On Your Own, Kid’ (Played 4 times)
  • ‘Maroon’ (Played 3 times)
  • ‘this is me trying’
  • ‘Our Song’
  • ‘Snow On The Beach’
  • ‘Death By A Thousand Cuts’
  • ‘Clean’
  • ‘The Other Side of the Door’
  • ‘Teardrops On My Guitar’
  • ‘Out of the Woods’
  • ‘Come Back…Be Here’
  • ‘Red’
  • ‘Getaway Car’
  • ‘Holy Ground’
  • ‘Daylight’

Taylor collaborated on ‘Nothing New’ with Phoebe Bridgers during the nights when Phoebe served as a supporting act, but the track was not among the two unanticipated songs. Taylor could potentially reintroduce the song as a surprise piece down the line.

Additionally, Taylor performed ‘No Body, No Crime’ alongside HAIM on the evenings they supported the show. It is conceivable that Taylor might revisit that performance individually at a later point.

The Eras Tour live concert movie was shot on August 3rd, 4th, and 5th in Los Angeles, CA. Taylor delivered six more unforeseen tracks, all of which were captured for the film. The cinema and online releases featured ‘Our Song’ and ‘You’re On Your Own, Kid’ as the duo of surprise tunes.

In the (Taylor’s Version) version slated for streaming on Disney+ on March 15th, Taylor verified that all six songs she performed during those presentations will be encompassed. Here is the complete lineup:

  • ‘I Can See You’
  • ‘Maroon’
  • ‘Our Song’
  • ‘You Are In Love’
  • ‘Death By A Thousand Cuts’
  • ‘You’re On Your Own, Kid’

Just as you were expecting the Eras Tour to persist as a jubilation of Taylor’s 10 albums, she astoundingly unveils her unexpected 11th album!

The Tortured Poets Department is scheduled for release on April 19th, and showcases 17 fresh tracks. While it remains uncertain whether Taylor will modify her setlist to integrate the new songs, there is a possibility that she might unveil them as surprise numbers.
