What surprise songs did Taylor Swift perform in Las Vegas?
Taylor Swift’s setlist features one or two surprise songs at each stop.
Taylor Swift’s highly anticipated Eras tour kicked off in Glendale, Arizona on March 17. Her setlist consists of 44 songs and her first show clocked in at 3 hours and 15 minutes.
However, the acoustic portion of her concert will feature one or two surprise songs at each tour stop, and she made sure to perform some different tracks during her Las Vegas show on March 24.
Here are all of the surprise songs that have appeared on the Eras tour so far.
‘Mirrorball’ was performed on March 17 in Glendale, Arizona. The song was released in 2020 and appears on Swift’s Folklore album.
Swift said at the venue: “I was thinking about the first one I would play for you. I was thinking about what song to play first, and I was thinking about how one of the songs that I wrote with your in mind during the pandemic was one of the first songs I wrote for Folklore, and it was me writing about how badly I craved the connected that I feel from the care that you have directed in my way.
“I’m trying to tell you I love you, and I’m babbling. I was trying to think of sort of an eloquent way to say that I love you and I need your attention all the time, and I came up with ‘I’m a mirrorball.’”
Also performed on March 17 in Glendale, Arizona, ‘Tim McGraw’ was released in 2006 on Swift’s self-titled debut album.
“I was thinking about tonight and how special this is,” Swift said, “so I thought it might be kind of fun to play the very first song I ever put out.”
‘This Is Me Trying’
Performed in Glendale, Arizona on March 18, ‘This Is Me Trying’ was released in 2020 on Swift’s Folklore album.
‘State of Grace’
‘State of Grace’ was performed in Glendale, Arizona on March 18 and was released on Swift’s 2012 Red album.
Swift performed ‘Our Song’ in Las Vegas on March 24. It was released in 2007 on her Taylor Swift album.
“I do get ideas from places,” Swift said. “I actually saw an interview that Beabadoobee did – who is our amazing, brilliant opening act tonight – and they were saying, ‘Oh you’re going on The Eras Tour. What song might you want to hear?’
“And she was like, ‘I grew up listening to songs on her first album.’ And she named a specific song.
“So I figured, you know what, for her first show with us, I’ll play the specific song that she said she would want to hear. So this is a song I wrote for my ninth-grade talent show. It’s called ‘Our Song.’”
‘Snow on the Beach’
‘Snow on the Beach’ was also performed in Las Vegas on March 24. The song was released on the singer’s Midnights album in 2022.
“Lana Del Rey put out a new album,” Swift said. “It’s called ‘Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd.’ Guys, it’s so good.
“You probably already know that, but it’s just extraordinary. I just think she’s the best that we have. I think we need to make it a priority as a group to stream, buy, support this album and this artist.
“She knows I’m obsessed with her, and she was kind enough to make a song with me on Midnights called ‘Snow on the Beach’ because she’s a generous king. She did that for me, and I’ll never forget how nice she’s been to me.
“It’s so cool when you have favorite artists and they turn out to be so nice to you. I wanted to just do some promo for her, and also, in honor of this brilliant album that she just put out, I wanted to play ‘Snow on the Beach.’”
