Taylor Swift Kicks Off European ‘Eras Tour’ In Paris, Changes A Few Songs And Outfits

After a two-month hiatus, Taylor Swift is back on the road with the European leg of the Eras Tour. This time, there are songs from the new album, The Tortured Poets Department, and some splashy new outfits (see below.) There will be 18 cities on the list of tour stops, and already reports are circulating of a heavy U.S. fan presence at the shows.

Swift took the stage at La Défense Arena in Paris tonight about 8 p.m. (2 p.m. ET), heralded with a countdown clock and the Lesley Gore song You Don’t Own Me. She began her Lover set with Miss Americana.

New songs for the tour included So High School, I Can Do It With a Broken Heart, But Daddy I Love Him, The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived, Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me, Down Bad, and Fortnight.

Adding songs, of course, meant saying goodbye to some favorites, even in a 45-song set list, at least on this first night. Cut from the show were The Archer, Long Live, The 1, Tolerate It, The Last Great American Dynasty, and Tis the Damn Season.

Swift’s new stage outfits included a new Lover bodysuit, a Fearless dress, and an Enchanted gown, accompanied by a new t-shirt for the Red era, saying, “This is Not Taylor’s Version.”

Saluting the Folklore era, she wore a new yellow dress, while 1989 was changed to a blue-and-pink sequined ensemble.

The order of the set list changed as well. Evermore came after Fearless, followed by Red and then Speak NowEvermore and Folklore merged into one era.

Swift stuck to her original set list at the start of the Midnights era by singing Lavender Haze, Anti-Hero, and Midnight Rain.

Overall, Swift played these songs from her newest album: But Daddy I Love Him, 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.
