While fans knew they would be treated to songs from across Swift’s discography, there was mystery regarding how she would organize the setlist. Instead of moving through her 10 albums chronologically, Swift bounced around her eras, kicking off the show with 2019’s Lover before queuing up into 2020’s evermore. Reputation followed, which introduced a single track from Speak Now, during which she performed “Enchanted.”

Songs from Red, Folklore, and 1989 came after, and then Swift performed a brief acoustic set consisting of “Mirrorball” and “Tim McGraw” from her debut self-titled album. Swift confirmed that she will keep that tradition but will change it up for every show, without repeating a song. Swift ended the night with her most recent release, Midnights.

Each era was highlighted by intricate sets, enchanting choreography, and custom outfits to represent each distinctive period in Swift’s career.

During the first show, Swift performed the following songs from Lover: “Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince,” “Cruel Summer,” “The Man,” “You Need to Calm Down,” the self-titled cut, and “The Archer.”
