All bets are off as Taylor Swift’s feverishly anticipated The Eras Tour — her first roadshow unbeholden to a particular album release — prepares to embark March 17 in Glendale, Arizona.
It stands to reason that Swift would heavily showcase the heap of music she’s produced since her record-setting Reputation Stadium Tour wrapped in 2018 — those projects being Lover (2019), Folklore and Evermore (2020), Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and Red (Taylor’s Version) (2021), and Midnights (2022).
But as the Eras Tour has been promoted by Swift as a “journey through all of my musical eras,” it’s understood that each of her 10 studio albums will be highlighted in some manner. Couple that with the fact that Swift has not publicly performed more than 70 new or previously unreleased songs since her last tour a whopping half-decade earlier, and Swifties’ imaginations have rightfully run wild. What on Earth will the setlist look like?
We’ve already put forth what her dream Eras setlist could resemble. But what about all that’s left on the cutting room floor? There are dozens upon dozens of songs that likely won’t be performed (at least with any regularity) on this tour, even if many would make for wondrously intimate moments or booming show-stoppers.
So that’s what we have here: all the songs Swift probably won’t play this spring and summer, but should sincerely consider — at least for a night or two. We’ve chosen two cuts per album; let’s break it down as we all count the minutes to opening night.
