Taylor Swift began her 'Eras' tour with a performance featuring 44 songs @taylorswift13
Taylor Swift, the 33-year-old singer-songwriter, graced the stage at Arizona's State Farm Stadium on March 17, 2023, for an unforgettable three-hour performance that took fans on a journey through her extensive discography. This marked Taylor's return to touring after a five-year hiatus during which she released three new albums. Overwhelmed with emotions, Taylor expressed how much she missed her fans and how fantastic they made her feel.
Starting with "Miss Americana And The Heartbreak Prince" from her "Lover" album, Taylor covered several highlights of her music career, including a 10-minute rendition of "All Too Well", "Look What Made You Do" showcased against a giant video wall displaying Taylor's 17-year journey, and "Blank Space" accompanied by her dancers riding neon bikes.
Taylor expressed her love for her fans, although she admitted that she was babbling. Gayle and Paramore were the opening acts for the first night of the 52-date tour. Glendale celebrated Taylor's performance by temporarily renaming the city as "Swift City" and issued a statement that acknowledged the pop star's influence and welcomed every Swiftie in style. The name change would remain in effect for the two nights she performed in Glendale.
