Around 8:40 p.m. the action began and, after a three-minute countdown, Taylor came out on stage and launched into “Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince,” the first of a long list of 45 songs in which the singer breaks down good part of his career. The artist was received by a loud applause that lasted several seconds and, for a moment, she stopped to contemplate it, admired by the strength of the swifties Argentina.
The first act of the show, titled lovers, continued with the songs “Cruel Summer”, “The Man”, “You Need to Calm Down”, “Lover” and “The Archer”. And it already started with the block Fearless, with its song of the same name and also “You Belong With Me”, to the delirium of the crowd. In line with the dynamism of the show, Taylor already made different wardrobe changes: she came out with a pink bodysuit that she later changed for a gold one; She then changed into an orange dress topped by a green cape, and then gave way to a red and black bodysuit with which she highlighted the length of her legs.
Taylor’s series of shows, produced by DF Entertainmentwill be completed with two more performances this Friday the 10th and Saturday the 11th. And in the first, the shows of Louta (who invited to the ascendant Blair to sing the hit “Yesterday I saw you”) and Sabrina Carpenter (among his own songs like “Read Your Mind” and “Opposite”, he covered “Dancing Queen”, by ABBA) enlivened the preview as the public settled into their respective sectors.

A young crowd, mostly female and very stylish: the most produced dressed according to the colors of the different albums (or, in Taylor’s jargon, their “era”) of the American music, in tune with this The Eras Tour. Not so oblivious to the Swift phenomenon, fathers and mothers were in the vicinity of the Monumental to accompany their sons and daughters who were fans of the artist.
Without a doubt, the most seen among the audience that has already packed the Monumental are the “friendship bracelets,” which are a must at Taylor’s recitals. On the field and in the stalls, the girls exchanged the bracelets that they made themselves and so that this ritual would not be cut short. swiftie.

The stadium doors opened at 4 p.m., but long before there was high expectation at the scene: a camp was set up at the end of May swiftie with the intention of obtaining the places attached to the fence. And early Thursday morning, a long line began to form behind the tents.
The moment they opened the door, the first ones ran with all their energy to get the most desired places. And upon settling in, many people shared their joy on social media. The most anticipated moment finally arrived.
Taylor’s is a world-class international production, one of the largest and most impressive shows in the world today. It has a main stage 100 meters long and an oblique walkway that takes it to the center of the field. The set also includes giant screens, sets with nods to her video clips, a powerful sound set, a large staff of dancers and around thirteen costume changes.
Swift’s idea for this tour is to stage ten “era’s” of her life, dividing the set list into thematic blocks that correspond to nine of her ten studio albums. They are not arranged chronologically, but rather follow the following order: Lover, Fearless, Evermore, Reputation, Speak now, Red, Folklore, 1989 and Midnights. In addition, there is a block of “surprise songs” performed in an acoustic key.
