‘Swifties’ are getting serious about the songs they’re wanting Taylor Swift to perform on her highly-anticipated ‘Eras’ Tour!
After months of whirlwind commentary surrounding Ticketmaster’s mishandling of the tour’s ticket sales, The Eras Tour kicks off Friday, March 17th, in Glendale, Arizona!
The Eras Tour marks Swift’s first stadium tour since 2018 when she was touring behind her “Reputation” LP. All of the “End Game” singer’s planned live events and tours after the following year were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 33-year-old would memorably go on to record and surprise releases two albums in 2020, “folklore” and “evermore.” Songs from those two albums, plus 2022’s “Midnights” and all of Taylor’s Version albums released as of this writing, will be performed in stadiums for the first time!
Swift’s official management team Taylor Nation is getting down to business. Ahead of Friday’s gig in Glendale, they asked Swifties to “manifest” their faves for Swift to perform!

Tickets for The Eras Tour went on sale in November, two weeks after Swift’s announcement! Demand would soon call for her team to add more shows to the tour’s roster.
Headlines surrounding Ticketmaster’s response to high-demand ticket sales would go on to dominate the news cycle in the music industry for the next several weeks. The ticket giant would face criticism from fans and lawmakers, alike, and would also be the target of lawsuits.
Swift would later speak out against Ticketmaster in mid-November, proclaiming how “difficult” it was for her and her management to “trust an outside entity with those relationships and loyalties” between Swift and her fanbase. She would add in her Instagram Story statement, it was also “excruciating for me to watch mistakes happen without any recourse.”
The “Fearless” singer would also reveal she and her team had made sure Ticketmaster was equipped to handle such a high-level demand for tickets, and the outlet “reassured” them it was possible.
Ticketmaster would issue an apology of their own and would cite an overwhelming and unprecedented ticket demand. Swifties would soon take Ticketmaster to task on social media with criticism. Fans also alleged Ticketmaster had been deleting negative commentary from their Twitter thread intended to give more insight into what had gone wrong.
More recently, Swifties speculated on TikTok regarding reports Hulu would be doing something special in support of the tour. While many had hoped the streaming service would be streaming the tour live, those theories were later debunked by inside sources within the streaming service.
