Taylor Swift Gets Emotional at Final Liverpool Show Singing a Song Written With Joe Alwyn

On Saturday night, Taylor Swift performed her final Eras Tour show in Liverpool before she heads on to Cardiff and then London. The star reportedly got emotional, according to the Daily Mail, when she sang “Champagne Problems” from 2020’s Evermore, a song she wrote with ex-boyfriend of six years Joe Alwyn.

The crowd had a huge reaction to the tune and Swift took out her earpiece to hear them before saying, “It is genuinely such an honor to play for a crowd like this. That fact that you would do that for us—I love you so much, Liverpool. Thank you.”

This weekend, Alwyn spoke out about his breakup with Swift for the first time since their split in 2023, telling the Sunday Times UK about the difficulty of navigating a private split in public.

“I would hope that anyone and everyone can empathize and understand the difficulties that come with the end of a long, loving, fully committed relationship of over six and a half years,” he explained. “That is a hard thing to navigate. What is unusual and abnormal in this situation is that, one week later, it’s suddenly in the public domain and the outside world is able to weigh in.”

He added that even with Swift’s art and music being in the world, there’s plenty people don’t know.

“So you have something very real suddenly thrown into a very unreal space: tabloids, social media, press, where it is then dissected, speculated on, pulled out of shape beyond recognition,” he explained. “And the truth is, to that last point, there is always going to be a gap between what is known and what is said. I have made my peace with that.”

He continued, “As everyone knows, we together—both of us, mutually—decided to keep the more private details of our relationship private. It was never something to commodify, and I see no reason to change that now. And, look, this is also a little over a year ago now, and I feel fortunate to be in a really great place in my life, professionally and personally.”
