Taylor Swift – The Eras Tour – What Surprise Songs Would We Like To Hear On Tour? And Surprise Songs So Far – Plus General Set List

The eagerly anticipated Eras Tour kicked off at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Having missed out on Lover Fest due to covid and then Taylor releasing three more albums (folklore,evermore, Midnights) since then with no tour – fans, (ourselves included) didn’t know how we were ever going to get a chance to see these songs live! We kind of hoped for a mash up of Lover/folklore/evermore/Midnights but the Eras tour is a much better and in fact genius idea. What a way to not just celebrate her music but also her continuous journey to owning all her own material.

For many of us, we have been along for the ride since the release of Debut so this will be a real party and a way to journey back in time. However, it doesn’t matter when you became a fan of Swift’s music as this tour is for everyone!

As a Swiftie since 2007, we pretty much want every single song that she has ever released on the set list but of course that isn’t possible. There will always be songs we prefer to have over others but to be honest, it has been so long since we have seen her live we would be happy with pretty much anything.

The surprise song on tour is always a special moment and makes many of us Swifties want to book to go to more than one show.

With this being the Era’s tour, there are a whole number of songs that she could possibly play . The set list is said to be about 44 songs. Usually I would say that is way too long for a concert but for Taylor Swift, well it’s just about perfect!

So, what surprise songs can we expect? With Debut having no songs on the leaked set list and Speak Now having one on the set list (so far) it is a possibility that the surprise song on some of these nights will be off of Debut or Speak Now as well as other albums. We can possibly expect songs from the Vault too and not to mention film soundtrack songs such as Crazier, Today Was A Fairytale, Eyes Open, Safe & Sound and many more!

So realistic or not, here are some of the songs that we would LOVE to have as a surprise song on the tour. This is just our opinion and a lot of the Debut, Fearless, Speak Now and Red decisions are based on the fact we saw those tours multiple times.

There are meant to be two surprise songs a night and unique to those dates, so repeats are unlikely.

The Surprise songs we would like on tour are;

Debut Deluxe:

Cold As You

The Outside

Tied Together With A Smile

Stay Beautiful

Our Song – Las Vegas

Mary’s Song (Oh My My My)
