Taylor Swift opened her highly anticipated Eras Tour with an epic concert in Phoenix, Arizona, Friday night. The 33-year-old singer kicked off her first tour since 2018, performing 44 songs from ten albums over three hours, 15 minutes.
"I can't even go into how much I've missed you," Swift told the crowd of around 80,000 fans at State Farm Stadium, per BBC. When the hitmaker first announced her tour on Instagram in November, she said, "It's a journey through all of my musical eras of my career." On her tour's opening night, Swift delivered on her promise with a setlist that featured individual sections for each of her albums, including "Taylor Swift," "Speak Now," "Evermore," "Folklore," "Lover," "Reputation," "Red (Taylor's Version)," "Fearless," "1989" and "Midnights." The Pennsylvania native launched into the show with a performance of "Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince" from her 2019 album "Lover." "I don’t know how to process all of this in the way that it’s making me feel right now," she said, according to Entertainment Tonight.
"We have a lot of time for me to try to sum up how I’m feeling about how much I’ve missed you and how happy I am to see you. Let me just start by saying you guys are making feel fantastic!" She performed some of her biggest hits, including "Shake It Off," "Blank Space," "Midnight Rain," "Tim McGraw," "Karma," "You Belong With Me," "Cruel Summer," "Willow," "Look What You Made Me Do," "Don't Blame Me," "Fearless," "Love Story," "All Too Well (10 Minute Version)" and "I Knew You Were Trouble." The concert featured a giant curved screen backdrop, multiple set pieces, pyrotechnics, 16 backup dancers, and at least 13 costume changes for Swift.
