It was a big moment for Taylor, whose last tour was derailed by the coronavirus pandemic after the release of her album Lover.
Taylor addressed the issue about an hour after her performance, asking the audience, “Is it just me or do I have a lot to catch up on? It’s been a really long time since I’ve been on tour.”

She continued, “There is no way to put into words how much I missed you.”
At another point, Taylor admitted, “I was really overwhelmed and was trying to keep it up all night.”
Emotional moments were just a few highlights of Taylor’s three-plus hour performance that produced a stunning 44 songs from 10 hit albums.
She has performed “You Belong With Me,” “Shake It Off,” “Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince,” “Cruel Summer,” “Ready For It?” Ted”, “Midnight Rain”.
Of course, Taylor has gone through a number of wardrobe changes meant to reflect the many changes she has gone through over the years. I was riding a cycle and singing the song “Blank Space”. Taylor and Co. also famously channeled her Rockettes and landed a high kick on “22.”
The stage itself stretched to the back of the stadium with an artistic set design that included a gold version of the cabin featured in her “Cardigan” video. There was also footage projected onto a jumbotron behind the scenes.
Taylor is definitely back in action. What a night!
