Taylor Swift Las Vegas Eras Tour Concert Review: 5 Surprises – Billboard


Taylor Swift fans in Las Vegas who couldn’t wait until Friday night (March 24) to learn all the details of The Eras Tour might have read up on the setlist, stage production and fashion from last weekend’s opening concerts in Glendale, Ariz. But even the most well-researched Swifties were still in for surprises at the first of her two-night stand at Sin City’s Allegiant Stadium, as Billboard witnessed from the crowd.

Of course, those fans already knew they were in for two songs that weren’t on the previous two setlists, after Swift performed “Mirrorball” and “Tim McGraw” during night 1’s acoustic set and “State of Grace” and “This Is Me Trying” on night 2. The Vegas crowd was in for a double-barreled treat, as she went back to her self-titled debut album for “Our Song” (by request of debut opening act Beabadoobee) — Swift’s only track from the 2006 project for the night — and then paid tribute to Lana Del Rey’s Friday-released album Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd by playing her LDR collab “Snow on the Beach” from November’s Midnights for the first time.

That last one came with a disclaimer. “I’m going to talk about something, but I just have to tell you first of all: I’m going to talk about another artist, but that artist is not here, OK?” Swift warned the 60,000-person crowd. “I’m not going to bring somebody out. You’re stuck with me. We don’t have guests at this show, OK?”

So what was different from opening weekend at the first Las Vegas Eras Tour stop? Read below for five brand-new moments from Friday night’s concert.
