Taylor Swift fans, aka Swifties, came together for the start of Swift’s Eras Tour in Glendale, Arizona, also known as the Swift City. Performing for the first time since 2008, she had 80,000 fans singing along for three hours and 13 minutes featuring 44 songs and 13 outfit changes with 16 backup dancers. Throughout the multiple outfit changes, the singer maintained her straight hair, winged liner, sparkling Christian Louboutin boots, along with signature red lips.
Lover, Fearless, and Evermore
The singer started the concert with her hit “Lover.” For her initial songs, she donned a twinkling Versace bodysuit, changing into a sparkling suit jacket for “The Man.” Performing from her album Fearless, the singer donned a golden Alberta Ferretti fringe dress while singing “You Belong With Me,” “Love Story” and “Fearless.” Next, she switched to an orange embroidered corset dress for the first live performance of the Evermore songs.
Reputation and Red
Moving on to the Reputation era, she put on an intriguing asymmetrical, half-leg black sequined bodysuit with bright red snakes, making a reference to her infamous conflict with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Swift then changed into a dreamy gown by Nicole + Felicia, referencing her sequined Valentino ensemble from her tour Speak Now. Embracing her Red era, she performed the new version of “22” in a replica of the sequined T-shirt from the music video. The text, however, was switched from “Not a lot going on at the moment” to “A lot going on at the moment.” Giving her hat to a fan, she removed the shirt, revealing a red and black sequined romper by Ashish for the next song, upon which she added a matching long coat for the 10-minute performance of “All Too Well.”
Folklore, 1989, Tim McGraw, and Midnight Rain
From her Folklore songs, Swift performed in a heavenly lavender dress by Alberta Ferretti. She wore a pink crystal top and skirt by Roberto Cavalli for the 1989 songs “Style,” “Blank Space,” “Shake it Off,” ‘”Wildest Dreams,” and “Bad Blood.” Next, she donned a magenta-tiered gown for “Tim McGraw” from her debut album. Ending the show with a bang, Swift gave one of the most dramatic transitions from her purple dress to a short sequined garb, later adding a purple coat. With this outfit, she performed “Lavender Haze,” “Anti-Hero,” “Bejeweled,” “Mastermind,” and “Karma” from Midnights. Giving one last surprise, during the performance of “Midnight Rain,” she changed into a glittering blue Oscar de la Renta bodysuit and a rainbow fringe jacket.
