Taylor Swift announces her upcoming album “The Tortured Poets Department” while accepting the best pop vocal album award for “Midnights” onstage during the 66th Annual Grammy Awards at Arena in Los Angeles on Feb. 4, 2024.

Taylor Swift’s world renowned Eras Tour returned in Paris on Thursday May 9. Fans were left shocked as the tour had a complete upgrade with the addition of new outfits, new setlist, including “The Tortured Poets Department,” which is Swift’s most recently released album.

Swift’s tour began back in March of 2023 in Glendale, AZ and ended in Los Angeles back in August. The old setlist contained songs from her first 10 studio albums, including 2 surprise acoustic songs each night.

The international tour of the Eras Tour began in Mexico City August 24 2023, where it continued to Argentina, Brazil, Tokyo, Australia, Singapore, and now Paris.

Swift’s new album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” was wondered by Swift’s fans, Swifties, if there would be a change in the setlist to accommodate for the new album.

As revealed in Paris night one, it has officially been added to the set list starting with “But Daddy I Love Him,” and continuing to “So High School,” “Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me,” “Down Bad,” “Fortnight,” “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived,” and “I Can Do It With A Broken Heart.”

With the addition of “TTPD”, the setlist has changed as the show was already over a 3 ½ hour long show, so Swift came up with a new order.

Swift decided it was for the best, and decided to do small things such as combining the “sister albums”, also known as folklore and evermore into one.

As Swift said, “you can call it folkmore, everlore, the sister albums.”

Swift also cut some songs from other sets to accommodate “TTPD” such as “The Archer,” “Tolerate It,” “‘Tis the damn season,” “Long Live,” and “The Last Great American Dynasty.” As this is a tragic loss to some Swifties, their excitement over “TTPD” exceeds their sadness.

Along with the new music, new outfits were present in Paris. Some new outfits included a brand new orange body suit and matching boots for the Lover set, new black and silver dress and black boots for Fearless, new 22 t-shirts for Red, new Speak Now gown, new “Folkmore” dresses, multiple new multicolored two-piece sets and matching boots for “1989,” obviously a new set of outfits for “TTPD,” new surprise song dresses, and brand new “Midnights” bodysuit.

Swifties speculation furthers as the tour continues, will there be new songs added to the setlist? New outfits? What’s the surprise songs? “Reputation” Taylor’s Version?

This new update of the Eras Tour has been all over social media ever since May 9 as this is a big change to the tour, it begs the question if some SSwifties who went last year are angered by this or not? But either way this new version is exciting for all and no one can wait to see what’ll happen next.
