The Eras Tour kicked off in Glendale, Arizona on March 17! Taylor Swift worked hard for months to put together this show for his fans. This is the singer’s first time touring since 2018, and expectations for the tour were high. Since Taylor’s last tour, she has released four albums, as well as two re-recorded versions of old albums. Speculation about which tracks would actually be part of the show’s setlist has been rife among fans ever since Taylor announced the tour in November 2022.

On opening night, Taylor proved that she would take the crowd through her catalog of music on this tour. She started with the Lover era, and continued from there. Check out everything we know about the setlist and tour below:

The 33-year-old had hundreds of songs and ten albums to choose from to curate this setlist. Since her last tour, she has released the albums Lovers, Folklore, Always And Midnightsas well as re-recordings of Intrepid And Red. The re-recordings themselves feature several new songs, with additional tracks added that did not make the album cut the first time around. One such song is the fan-favorite “All Too Well (10 Minute Version)”, which won a Grammy Award and various other accolades.

It’s also unclear if Taylor will have the exact same setlist every night, or if she’ll change things up every show. During the Reputation Tour, Taylor had a spot on the setlist where she played a different song from her extensive catalog each night. This allowed fans to see her perform songs she hadn’t sung live in years. Additionally, Taylor has been known to bring special guests on stage for her shows, so there’s always the possibility of different musical artists joining her to sing their own songs as well.

Taylor Swift Eras Tour Dates

When Taylor first announced her Eras Tour, she confirmed that the first leg would include 27 dates in the United States in the spring and summer of 2023. Of course, demand for tickets was extremely high, so she doubled down the number of shows. As of March 2023, there are now 52 dates on the Eras Tour (see below).

Plus, there will surely be more to come. In Taylor’s Instagram announcement post, she clarified that this was just the first leg of the tour. Additionally, in October 2022, the UK Store on Taylor’s website confirmed that dates in England were coming. Fans who pre-ordered Taylor’s album Midnights in the store received “access to the special pre-sale code for upcoming and yet to be announced UK show dates”. Further stops on the tour have not been confirmed.

Taylor Swift Ticketmaster controversy

When tickets for the Eras Tour went on sale, there was unprecedented demand. Prior to the on-sale date, fans could register for a “verified fan” code, which was Ticketmaster’s attempt to weed out bots from buying tickets. A lottery-style draw was conducted, giving only a certain number of fan presale codes to purchase tickets.

Despite hundreds of thousands of fans not receiving codes and being put on a “waiting list,” Ticketmaster crashed again when hordes of Swifties flocked to the site on the November 15 presale date. Millions of people attempted to login to the sale at the same time, causing the site to crash. The Live Nation president later revealed that 14 million fans were trying to tune in at the same time, while Ticketmaster was only expecting 1.5 million based on the codes that had been given out.

Ticketmaster was forced to cancel the regular on-sale of the concert due to a lack of remaining tickets. Thousands of fans were unable to obtain tickets for the tour, leading to outrage and backlash against Ticketmaster. On November 18, Taylor took to her Instagram Story to address the situation. She specifically called Ticketmaster for not being able to handle the demand for the situation, although she assured him she would be covered.

“It goes without saying that I am extremely protective of my fans,” Taylor wrote. “We’ve been doing this together for decades and over the years I’ve brought so many elements of my career in-house. I did this SPECIFICALLY to improve the quality of the experience for my fans by doing it myself with my team who care about my fans as much as I do. It’s really hard for me to trust an outside entity with these relationships and loyalties, and excruciating for me to just watch mistakes happen without recourse. There are a myriad of reasons why people have had such a hard time trying to get tickets and I’m trying to figure out how this can be improved in the future. I’m not going to excuse anyone as we asked them several times if they could handle this kind of request and we were assured they could. It’s truly amazing that 2.4 million people got tickets, but it really pisses me off that so many of them feel like they’ve suffered multiple bear attacks to get them. And to those who didn’t get tickets, all I can say is that my hope is to give us more opportunities to come together and sing these songs. Thank you for wanting to be there. You have no idea what that means.

On the same day, Ticketmaster apologized for the fiasco in a statement posted on its website. The company specifically apologized to Taylor and her fans, while trying to explain how things got so out of hand. Ticketmaster included statistics to show how many people were coming to the site to buy tickets, and explained how that astronomical number was different from what they’ve seen in the past. “Historically about 40% of (verified) fans (with pre-sale codes) actually show up and most buy an average of 3 tickets,” the post explains. “About 1.5 million (out of 3.5 million registrants) received codes to join the sale for all 52 dates.”

The post continued: “This time the staggering number of bot attacks, along with fans who didn’t have codes, drove unprecedented traffic to our site, resulting in a total of 3.5 BILLION hits. system.” The company also assured fans that it was “always working to improve the ticket buying experience.”

In January 2023, Ticketmaster/Live Nation faced a Senate hearing on whether or not its monopoly over the ticket buying industry was what led to this controversy. During the hearing, the Live Nation CEO once again apologized to Taylor and his fans. “We must do better and we will do better,” he insisted. Associated press. Ticketmaster’s top brass were grilled by the Senate during the hearing, and many senators even released lyrics to Taylor Swift songs to make their points. It remains to be seen whether or not this hearing will have any effect on the company in the future.
