In our ‘Eras Era’- Part one

Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’ from Becca’s perspective

Taylor Swift has been my favorite artist for as long as I can remember. When I saw the announcement for ‘The Eras Tour’ I was beyond excited. 

After having “bad blood” with Ticketmaster, I was able to score tickets. I guess you could say I was one of the “lucky ones.” 

After waiting six long months, the day finally arrived. We drove to Dallas, got ready, and made our way to the AT&T Stadium. 

Getting to the venue was a breeze and I loved seeing all the fans in their sparkly outfits as we drove by! 

We got inside the venue around 6:20. I missed most of Gracie Abrams set, which I was disappointed about.  

At least I got to see Abrams perform ‘I Know it Won’t Work’, so that made up for it. 

The intro for the Lover Era was beyond beautiful. The set starts with the line “It’s been a long time coming back”, from Swift’s song ‘Mrs. Americana & the Heartbreak Prince’.  

Dancers with giant flags circled around the stage and Taylor Swift popped up out of the ground! 

I screeched in my mom’s ear so loud my voice gave out! (Sorry Mom) 

The Lover Era ended with Swift singing ‘The Archer’ as the iconic Lover House burned down.  

Champagne Problems’ was my favorite song from the Evermore set. Hearing 80,000 people screaming the bridge was such a special moment.  

The Reputation set was by far my favorite, since it is my favorite album. The opening to ‘…Ready  For It?’ made my stomach drop.  

During ‘Delicate’, the whole stadium did the “1,2,3 Let’s Go!” chant. After that we were blessed with a performance of ‘Don’t Blame Me’.  

I was most excited for ‘Don’t Blame Me’. I talked about it nonstop leading up to the concert. 

I have been wanting to hear All Too Well live since I heard it for the first time. 10 full minutes of singing and crying I will never forget.

‘Illicit Affairs’ was my favorite performance of the whole night. Swift fell to her knees and sang with so much emotion. The whole performance was beautiful. 

‘Bad Blood’ had such an amazing visual. During the bridge a real fire shot up all over the stadium. From my seats, I could feel the heat. I wasn’t expecting it, so I was shocked at first. 

For those that don’t know, Swift plays two surprise acoustic songs at every show on this tour. Once she plays one, she won’t play it again at any other show. 

My show got ‘Death By A Thousand Cuts’ and ‘Clean’. These are two of my favorite Taylor Swift songs of all time. 

Swift replayed the bridge of ‘DBATC’ three times! She even messed up once. The whole stadium shook with how loud everyone was screaming. 

The second she announced she was playing ‘Clean’ I broke out in tears. Ever since hearing the piano version in the Reputation Stadium Tour movie, I have searched the internet looking for a version to stream.  

Now I have my own version! 

Swift closed the tour with the song ‘Karma’, from Midnights. Confetti filled the room, and everyone was cheering.  

After leaving the show, I felt so fulfilled. Seeing Taylor Swift in concert was a dream come true.  

I will ‘Forever & Always’ remember my night at the Eras Tour! I give my experience a 13/10.
