The stadium tour picked back up last night in Buenos Aires, Argentina, after a nearly three-month-long break
The Eras tour has resumed after a nearly three-month-long break, and with it comes the return of what Swifties have dubbed “surprise song anxiety.” For a little while, they were able to know peace, or at least some version of it — Taylor Swift was still everywhere, from football games at Arrowhead Stadium to Saturday Night Live, during her time off. Picking back up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on Thursday night, the singer and songwriter treated the audience to the first-ever live performances of “The Very First Night” and “Labyrinth.”
“There is not a single person in this stadium that is not going as hard as humanly possible. You are dancing; you’re thrashing around. Sometimes, I really think that your singing is louder than the speakers. You are that powerful. I’m having the time of my little life up here,” Swift told the audience. “On the Eras tour, a tradition that we kind of started is that I try to play two different songs in the acoustic section that I’ve never played live before. I’m gonna keep that tradition going tonight — I’ve got two songs I’ve never even attempted to play live before.”
“The Very First Night” appeared on Red (Taylor’s Version) as one of nine previously unreleased vault tracks included on the record. Swift told the crowd she thought it was a fitting choice given that she was performing the first of three nights at Buenos Aires’ Estadio River Plate. Her second pick, “Labyrinth,” appeared as the tenth track on her tenth studio album, Midnights, released last year.
The Eras tour still has months of shows left, but only eight left in 2023. The tour will wrap for the year in São Paulo on Nov. 26 and returns in February 2024 with shows in Japan and Australia. More international dates are scheduled through December 2024.
