While performing in Cardiff, Wales on June 18 as part of the European leg of her career-spanning ‘Eras’ tour, the pop star treated fans in attendance to a live debut of ‘I Hate It Here’ from her latest offering, ‘The Tortured Poets Department’.

Performed during the “surprise songs” portion of her setlist, Swift mashed up ‘I Hate It Here’ with ‘The Lakes’, the latter of which featured on her ‘Folklore’ album.

Watch the performance below.

Earlier this month, NME gave Swift’s first Edinburgh show of the tour a glowing five-star review, writing: “Despite being an arena show, in a huge, cavernous venue, Swift and her fans have managed to cultivate a community. Strangers swap friendship bracelets, laugh and cry together, and embrace the tour’s in-jokes and lore (for example shouting “one, two, three, let’s go bitch” during ‘Delicate’).

“It’s the power of Swift, an artist who’s inspired not only the renaming of a Scottish Loch, but also countless fans to come out and embrace being a part of the Eras family. With The Eras Tour, then, Swift’s managed to craft a marvel of a show that comes with a beating heart.”

Since then, she has debuted her songs ‘The Bolter’ and ‘Crazier’ in Edinburgh, along with premiering her mashup of ‘This Is What You Came For’ and ‘Gold Rush’ at her show in Liverpool.

The popstar also confirmed in Liverpool at her 100th show that the ‘Eras’ tour would officially end in December, saying: “This has definitely been the most exhausting, all-encompassing but most joyful, most rewarding, most wonderful thing that has ever wondered in my life, this tour.

“This is the very first time I’ve ever acknowledged to myself and admitted that this tour is going to end in December. Like, that’s it. That feels so far from now, but then again, it feels like we’ve just played our first show on this tour.”

She went on to add: “This tour has really become my entire life, it’s taken over everything, like I think I once had hobbies, but I don’t know what they were anymore. All I do when I’m not on stage is sit at home and try to think of clever acoustic song mashups and think about what you might want to hear.”

In other news, Joe Alwyn has broken his silence on his split with Taylor Swift, calling it “a difficult thing to navigate”.
