Spotify Honors Taylor Swift and Her Record-Breaking Eras Tour Show

Spotify has created a playlist dedicated to Taylor Swift and her record-breaking Eras Tour, with songs from the official set list.

 

Swift is presently on the European leg of her hugely successful tour, which became the first to exceed the $1 billion mark last year. Following a hiatus following concerts in Asia and Australia, Swift resumed the tour in Paris on May 9, when she debuted a new set list with songs from her most recent album, The Tortured Poets Department (TTPD), which was released on April 19.

 

Now Spotify has shared the new tour set list, with the playlist containing 44 songs, amounting to approximately three hours. The tracks range from “Cruel Summer” belonging to her Lover album to “Down Bad” from TTPD.

 

So far, the Eras Tour has been divided into the singer-songwriter’s 10 different “eras,” each signifying one of her albums. Swift has been known to add surprise songs to each concert, which the playlist doesn’t include.

 

User @thisisvertrying announced the playlist on X, which was previously known as Twitter. The user posted a screenshot of the playlist with the caption: “You don’t see Spotify themselves doing this for any other tour.”

 

Newsweek approached Swift’s spokesperson and Spotify for comment on Thursday.
When Swift began the European leg of her tour in Paris, she made many adjustments to the performance, including fresh dress changes and the addition of seven new songs from TTPD. These tracks include “But Daddy I Love Him,” “So High School,” “Who’s Afraid Of Little Old Me?,” “Down Bad,” “Fortnight (Feat. Post Malone),” “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived,” along with “I Can Do It With A Broken Heart.”

 

To make room for these songs, Swift had to cut others from her already long set list. These include “The Archer,” “The Last Great American Dynasty,” “The 1,” “‘Tis the Damn Season,” and “Tolerate It.”

 

The singer-songwriter holds a range of records on Spotify, including becoming the first person to have five albums each with over 7 billion streams on the streaming service. In March, she became the first woman to have 10 solo singles get more than 1 billion streams on Spotify and, as of May 2024, she is the most-streamed artist of all time on the platform.

Within hours of TTPD being released the album started smashing streaming records, including becoming Spotify’s most-streamed album in one day, with 300 million streams in 24 hours, the provider revealed on its social media.

 

Swift has had a phenomenal year since she started the Eras Tour in March 2023. It became the highest-grossing live music tour long before it hit the halfway point of its 152 shows worldwide. The tour has seen unprecedented demand and is set to conclude in December 2024.

 

After completing the European leg of her tour in the middle of August, she will make a few last-minute appearances in American cities including Miami, New Orleans and Indianapolis. She’s scheduled to end her tour in Canada, with multiple shows in November and December. The tour is expected to conclude on December 8 in Vancouver, five days before her 35th birthday on December 13.
