Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour” has influenced fans across the globe, drawing massive crowds and sold out stadiums to each of her concerts. The tour has received so much attention that not all fans could get tickets, resulting in the release of Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour. The documentary has been seen by thousands of fans already, grossing up to $97 million already.

The film is a documentary of the August 7th show in Inglewood, Los Angeles, at SoFi Stadium. This venue was the last stop on the US leg of the Eras Tour. 

Over almost three hours of film, Taylor performed various songs from each of her albums. Starting with the Lover era, she performs “Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince”, “Cruel Summer”, “The Man”, “You Need to Calm Down”, and “Lover”. The concert features the song “The Archer”, which was cut from the film and not included. She performed this era while in a bejeweled Atelier Versace bodysuit and one of her various pairs of Red Bottom boots, adding a sparkly blazer for her performance of “The Man”.

Moving to her Fearless era, Taylor plays “Fearless”, “You Belong With Me”, and “Love Story”. 

From her Evermore era, Taylor played “Willow”, “Marjorie”, “Champagne Problems”, and “Tolerate It”. The last of her songs in the Evermore Era was performed with Raphael Thomas in a breathtaking performance and intricate set design. “Champagne Problems” was also played on a special Evermore Piano, displaying the cathartic experience it was for Taylor to sing her song that was written with her ex-boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. She cut the song “No body, No crime” from the film, but performed it in concert.

Her Reputation era brought the rebellious side of Taylor through her documentary, just as it did in concert several years ago. She performed hits “…Ready for It?”, “Delicate”, “Don’t Blame Me”, and “Look What You Made Me Do” in the film. 

The documentary only featured one song from her Speak Now album, “Enchanted”. The concert also got “Long Live”, but the song was cut from the film. Taylor wore an elaborate gown for the performance of Speak Now, which was designed by Nicole + Felicia. 

Her album Red was performed next in the film, with Taylor playing “22”, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”, “I Knew You Were Trouble”, and the ten-minute version of the hit “All Too Well”. 

Taylor’s next era, the Folklore era, was performed in the Folklore house on stage. This is a dreamy, woodsy cabin in the woods, where Taylor says she imagines sneaking off to. She describes her development of the album through COVID, where she created characters including James and Betty to make a love triangle that she describes in her songs. She plays “The 1” and “Betty”, which is about her fictional characters. She performed “Betty” on the Acoustic guitar. She then performed “The Last Great American Dynasty”, with many dancers dressed in vintage gowns. She also played “August”, “Illicit Affairs”, and “My Tears Ricochet”. 

From her 1989 era, Taylor performed “Style”, “Blank Space”, “Shake It Off”, and “Bad Blood”. 

Taylor played two surprise songs at each of her Eras Tour concerts, switching which songs she played acoustically for each show and not playing the same one twice. She played “Our Song” from her Debut album and “You’re On Your Own, Kid” from Midnights for the documentary. 

Lastly, Taylor performed “Lavender Haze”, “Anti-Hero”, “Midnight Rain”, “Vigilante Sh*t”, “Bejeweled”, “Mastermind”, and “Karma” from her newest album, Midnights.

The film features many amazing backup dancers, singers, and Taylor’s band. She shares special moments with each and all through her performances, making the concert and the film highlight each of them as well as herself. 

Taylor Swift’s documentary of her Eras Tour concert brought together Swifties from all over the globe to experience the concert for another time. Fans have been spotted singing in their seats and dancing in the aisles, showing off just how much of an effect Swift has on everyone.
