Taylor Swift has been a big name in the media for the last 18 or so years. Her newest album, Midnights, was released just before the announcement of the Eras tour. I was lucky enough to get to experience the Eras tour on night two in Arlington, Texas. I have been a swiftie since I was little, so to get to hear songs from her entire discography was surreal.
The Eras tour went through each of her albums, as a way to commemorate everything she hasdone thus far. Her albums include Taylor Swift (Debut), Fearless, Speak Now, Red, 1989,Reputation, Lover, Evermore, Folklore, and Midnights. With a discography list this massive,Taylor is probably one of the few artists who could pull a tour like this off. She has so manywell-known hit songs, like “You Belong With Me,” “Love Story,” “Blank Space,” “Tim McGraw,” etc.The set list for the Eras tour has 44 songs on it, and the concert itself, minus the openers, is alittle more than three hours long.
She has a variety of openers throughout her entire tour including Paramore, Girl in Red,MUNA, GAYLE, Gracie Abrams, HAIM, Beabadoobee, Phoebe Bridgers and OWENN. For thenight of my tour, Gracie Abrams and Beabadoobee opened, and they both did an amazing job. Ican’t imagine being a relatively small artist and opening up for Taylor Swift on a stadium tour infront of tens of thousands of people. They are both very talented artists, and I was alreadyfamiliar with their music, so I loved them.

At around 7:45 p.m., the countdown timer with two minutes on it appeared on the screen in front of us. As soon as that clock came on, the loudest screams you could imagine erupted from the crowd. Her opening song was from Lover, and getting to hear everyone sing or scream along left tears of joy on my face. Bridges are very important among the fans of Taylor Swift; she writes the best bridges you will ever hear. Right before she sang the first bridge of the night from the song “Cruel Summer,” she announced it and that prompted the next blood curdling screams from the crowd.
A thing I kept forgetting throughout the concert was that half of the songs Taylor was playing were songs she has not performed live before. The majority of the songs from Folklore,Evermore, Lover and Midnights are being performed for the first time live on this tour, which is what makes this tour so special.

Taylor is also performing an two surprise acoustic songs at each concert, one on guitar and one on piano. At my concert she performed “Clean” from the album 1989, and “Death by a Thousand Cuts” from Lover. She played the latter song’s bridge three times, which is something that probably won’t happen again, so Arlington night two got pretty lucky with that. Hearing her sing live for the first time was a cathartic experience. It is something that I will never forget– a very enchanting night.
