Taylor Swift Performs ‘Safe & Sound’ and ‘Untouchable’ Live for the First Time in Over a Decade in Sao Paulo

Taylor Swift surprised fans with two rarely performed songs at her Saturday night concert at the Allianz Parque stadium in São Paulo, Brazil, on Nov. 25.

“This has been a tradition that I started on The Eras Tour,” Swift said to the São Paulo crowd, explaining that she tries her best to deliver two songs she’s never played, or at least hasn’t played in a very long time, during her acoustic set. “Both songs I am playing tonight I have never, ever played on this tour.”

First up was “Safe & Sound” off of The Hunger Games soundtrack, on guitar. The song from the 2012 feature film hasn’t been heard on Swift’s stage in a decade; she last played it in 2013 on her Red Tour. The original recording featured The Civil Wars, but Swift performed the tune solo Saturday night.

Next, on piano, was the ballad “Untouchable,” which Swift re-recorded for Fearless (Taylor’s Version) but hasn’t performed live since 2011.

Night one in São Paulo featured the live debut of “Now That We Don’t Talk” from the 1989 (Taylor’s Version) vault. “I’ve never performed this one live before,” she teased the crowd on Friday. “Let’s see how I do with it.” She followed that surprise with a rare performance of Speak Now‘s “Innocent” at the piano.

She’ll return to São Paulo’s Allianz Parque stadium for a third night on Sunday.

Over three nights in Rio de Janeiro last weekend, Swift played several songs live for first time in he career, including 1989 (Taylor’s Version) vault tracks “Slut!” and “Surburban Legends,” and the emotional “Bigger Than the Whole Sky” from Midnights (3AM Edition).
