Are you ready for it?
Taylor Swift kicked off her highly anticipated Eras Tour at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., Friday.
The singer opened her three-hour show with “Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince” and ran through her greatest hits including “Love Story,” “All Too Well (10 Minute Version)” and “Blank Space” before closing the concert with “Karma.” (See the complete setlist below.)
Page Six broke the news last September that Swift, 33, was planning a massive stadium tour for the summer of 2023.
“Taylor has some really ambitious plans in place,” a source teased at the time. “She’s excited to get back on the road after such a long but fruitful break.”
The 12-time Grammy winner last toured the world in 2018 in support of her album “Reputation.”
Swift confirmed our report in November when she announced the Eras Tour, describing it on Instagram as “a journey through the musical eras of [her] career (past and present!).”
And she made good on her promise, separating the sections of Friday’s opener by album — in the following order: “Lover” (2019), “Fearless” (2008), “Evermore” (2020), “Reputation” (2017), “Speak Now” (2010), “Red” (2012), “Folklore” (2020), “1989” (2014), “Taylor Swift” (2006) and “Midnights” (2022).
Each of the 10 acts featured a different costume, from a sequined red blazer to a beige ball gown.
The US leg of the tour concludes with a five-night run at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif., in early August.
Before it even launched, the Eras Tour caused quite the controversy.
An unprecedented demand for tickets caused Ticketmaster’s website to crash when the presale began, and the company was soon forced to cancel its public sale altogether due to “insufficient remaining ticket inventory.”

A Live Nation executive later admitted that the enterprise had prepared for only 1.5 million fans to have access to the presale, but 14 million showed up.
Swift also spoke out about the chaos, sharing in part that Ticketmaster bigwigs had previously “assured” her that they could “handle” the demand.
“It really pisses me off that a lot of [people] feel like they went through several bear attacks to get [tickets],” she wrote on social media.
Ticketmaster subsequently apologized to both the superstar entertainer and her fans for the “terrible experience,” which resulted in several lawsuits as well as a three-hour Senate judiciary committee hearing.
