All issues of the Glendale Show – Variety

Are you ready for it? Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour is finally here.

The 52-date trek kicks off Friday night in Glendale, Arizona, at State Farm Stadium with openers Gayle and Paramore. This is Swift’s first tour since the Reputation Stadium Tour in 2018, as her 2020 Lover Fest was canceled before it even started due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, Swift has released three studio albums – “Folklore” and “Evermore” in 2020 and “Midnights” in October 2022 – in addition to re-recording “Fearless” and “Red” (both with bonus tracks) in 2021.

Swift has promised this run will be “a journey through all my musical eras,” prompting Swifties everywhere to speculate just what that will mean for the tour’s setlist. Does she sing through the hits from each of her 10 albums chronologically, or mix it up to tell a completely different story? Time will tell. Either way, the Eras Tour is going to be something from the wildest dreams of its fans – those who were able to get their hands on tickets, that is.

The overwhelming demand for tickets when they went on sale in November caused Ticketmaster to crash, disappointing hundreds of thousands of fans. The tour broke the record for the most concert tickets sold in a single day by an artist at 2.4 million, and the Ticketmaster debacle even led to a congressional hearing on the lack of competition in the ticketing industry. Long story short, those who see Swift perform tonight are on hallowed ground – and the rest will just have to put up with it.
