Taylor Swift is bringing her magical The Eras Tour to Singapore. We’re betting that there’s going to be a bloody battle for tickets because it’s her only stop in Southeast Asia.
3 things to expect at Taylor Swift’s ‘The Eras Tour’
1. Bejewelled custom outfits
Sparkles, glitter, and everything in between. During the opening night of her tour in Glendale, Arizona, she walked into a stadium of 70,000 people and made the whole place shimmer. She kicked off her tour wearing a bejewelled silver bodysuit from Atelier Versace and knee-high boots from Christian Louboutin to pay tribute to her Lover era. She also wore a gold-fringed dress from Roberto Cavalli for her Fearless era which also gave us a flashback to her Speak Now tour. You can bet that she had at least 13 (the singer’s favourite number) outfit changes, and they were nothing less than gorgeous.
2. A 44-track setlist in three hours
Instead of going through each “era” chronologically, the singer opted to mix up the songs from her 10 albums. There were reports that the concert lasted three hours and 13 minutes. Speak Now (Taylor's Version) is coming soon, so she might switch up her setlist when the album finally comes to light.
For every stop, there will be a different acoustic song, and she sang ‘Mirrorball’ for her opening night.
3. Epic surprises

Taylor Swift's The Eras Tour announcement
The iconic singer-songwriter revealed that the first leg of her tour will take place in various stadiums across the US. She also mentioned that international dates for her tour will be announced soon.
The news about her tour came after the multi-Grammy award winner had powerfully broken records with her latest Midnights album where, for the first time in history, all 10 top slots of the Billboard Hot 100 were filled by her songs. Anti-Hero came in the lead at No. 1.
Taylor Swift’s upcoming tour will showcase her journey through the musical eras of her career. As seen in the poster, the concert will feature both her past and present projects since her debut in the industry. Her first show will happen on 18 March 2023 and will run through 5 August 2023.
Supporting acts include Paramore, Haim, Phoebe Bridgers, Beabadoobee, Girl in Red, Muna, Gayle, Gracie Abrams, and Owenn.
