Superstar singer Taylor Swift is coming close to NYC in May at MetLife Stadium for her “Eras Tour.” Tickets are on sale now. The setlist is a journey through all the musical eras of her prolific career.
The “Eras Tour” is the ongoing sixth headlining concert tour by Swift. Having not toured for her studio albums “Lover,” “Folklore,” and “Evermore” due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Swift is embarking on the “Eras Tour” in support of all of her albums, including her latest, “Midnights.”
The tour kicked off on Friday night in Glendale, Arizona during a three-hour show that ran through hits from every era of the Grammy-winner’s 17-year career.
Swifties can see Taylor in New Jersey on May 26 through 28 for three concerts, starting at 6:30 p.m. each day. It is her first tour in five years.

SONGS TO EXPECT TO HEAR DURING THE ERAS TOUR
For the Arizona concert, Swift wore a crystalized corset and matching boots, according to CNN, opening with her “Lover” era and “Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince,” a track off the 2019 album. She then performed “Cruel Summer” for the very first time in concert.
She also performed “Willow” and “Champagne Problems” from her pandemic-era album “Evermore,” followed by popular hits such as “Delicate” and “Don’t Blame Me” on a set where the “Reputation” snake slithered around.
The setlist proceeded with the “Red” era with renditions of catchy tunes like “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and “I Knew You Were Trouble.” Swift also performed the 10-minute version of “All Too Well.”
