Singer debuts “Ivy” with the National member while accompanying Abrams on her “I Miss You, I’m Sorry”
Taylor Swift welcomed a pair of guests, Aaron Dessner and Gracie Abrams, onstage during a rare three-track “Surprise Songs” segment at her Eras Tour gig Saturday in Cincinnati.
Given the show was in the Ohio city that produced the National, it was fitting that Swift first brought out Dessner, a Cincy native, for the debut live performance of Evermore’s “Ivy.”
Abrams, who has served as a special guest on most Eras Tour dates since joining the trek in April, next appeared to perform her own “I Miss You, I’m Sorry” on piano while Swift accompanied her on guitar:
Swift then capped off the Surprise Songs segment with a third track — usually the Surprise Songs segment also boasts two performances from her catalog — with the singer delivered the first live “Call It What You Want” in five years:
Friday’s Eras Tour show in Cincinnati featured the premiere performance of “Evermore” and “I’m Only Me When I’m With You” at Paycor Stadium.
The Eras Tour will continue next weekend with two shows at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium. Swift will then spend weekends in Denver, Seattle and Santa Clara before wrapping up the U.S. leg with an epic six-night stand at Inglewood, California’s SoFi Stadium.
