Taylor Swift She felt “powerful” this Wednesday night at the first of the two concerts she offers in Madrid, at the Santiago Bernabeuwhich has lit up with the historical review of his career that makes up the tour ‘The Eras Tour’ before more than 50,000swifties‘, according to estimates from the Madrid hospitality industry.

For more than three hours, the artist has been tireless in a show that she herself has described as an “adventure.” More than a year after the start of her tour and ten minutes after 8:00 p.m. this Wednesday, a countdown has burst onto all the Real Madrid screens announcing the imminent arrival of the one from Pennsylvania, who has emerged from a platform on stage, to the purest ‘Taylor’s Version’. Wrapped in a pink rhinestone dress and surrounded by her dancers who guarded her between flower-shaped fabrics, she has entered like the superstar she is to delight with her first hits, ‘Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince’ and ‘Cruel summer’.

«Hello, nice to meet you. This audience… The way you sing and dance… It’s a great start, you’re making me feel excellent,” she said smiling and then pointed to the stands, who shouted back at her that made her feel “powerful,” according to has added.

“We are not going to be apart for so long again.”

With ‘The Eras Tour’, Swift has returned to Spain after 13 years, something that she has assured that “will not happen again”, and that has allowed her to tour all the albums of her career – ‘Lover’, ‘Fearless ‘, ‘Red’, ‘Speak Now’, ‘Reputation’, ‘Folklore’, ‘Evermore’, ‘1989’, ‘Midnights’ and the latest, ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ – for exactly three hours and twenty minutes.

The repertoire has consisted of 45 songs that have been divided into ten acts, focused on each album and with different aesthetics and visual supports, which the artist has described as “an adventure” of “many decades” while asking the public to welcome these songs that he has written “from personal experiences” or “made up stories”, as his own.

As is customary since the tour began in Arizona on March 17, Taylor Swift has played two surprise acoustic songs and on this occasion, on her first night in Madrid, the artist has chosen ‘Sparks fly’ – which she already sang in his last visit to the country – and a mix of ‘Snow on the beach’ – which he shares with Lana Del Rey – and ‘I look look in people’s windows’.

Among the ‘swifties’ located in the upper stands, like Carlota, 25, there have been “some complaints” because the acoustics of the stadium did not allow the lyrics to be understood perfectly. Even so, in the VIP areas they did not share this vision and described the concert as “historic.”

As the ‘swifties’ who have been waiting since this morning in line to enter have explained to Europa Press, the album ‘Lover’, with which she opened the show, with songs like ‘The Man’, makes Taylor Swift considered “a feminist icon.” Another of the eras best received by the public has been ‘Fearless’, with which the artist has sung ‘Fearless’, ‘You Belong With Me’ and ‘Love Story’, with the recognizable ‘Juliet marry me’ that those attending the Bernabéu knew himself perfectly.

One of the reviews in which the show ‘The Eras Tour’ becomes most notable is ‘Red’, when Swift has appropriated the color red surrounded by her dancers and in which, with her chanted ’22’, she has returned to giving away, as he has done for a year, his hat to a girl in the audience.

«Fuck the Patriarchy»

The ‘swifties’ have not lowered the level in ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ and the ten-minute version of ‘All Too Well’ in which they have put all their effort into shouting « “Fuck the patriarchy” (“fuck the patriarchy” in English).

Although there have been several minutes between era and era, the show has not stopped and at all times the dancers have created the transitions with a stage presence that has prevented the stage from emptying. With ‘Speak now’, Swift sang ‘Enchanted’ and the bracelets that were distributed to attendees at the beginning of the concert lit up alternating purple and pink and illuminated the stadium.

One of the most vengeful eras of the undisputed queen of Pop is ‘Reputation’ and to honor the “bad reputation” that the music industry has placed on her shoulders, Swift has sung ‘…Ready for It?’, ‘Delicate ‘, ‘Don’t Blame Me’ and ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ in a setting in which the screens showed snakes continuously.

After her latest album, ‘The Tortured Poets Department’, the sections ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’ have been united and the artist has mixed songs such as ‘Cardigan’, ‘Betty’, ‘August’, ‘Illicit Affairs’ or ‘My Tears Ricochet’ with the very well received ‘Marjorie’ and ‘Willow’ surrounded by a pine forest with a cabin in the center.

“I didn’t know if I could play these two albums live, I wrote them one after the other when the pandemic began and we didn’t know what the future would hold for us,” the artist acknowledged excitedly sitting at the piano, which has also magically appeared.

Despite her way of acting, confidence in dancing and characteristic gestures, it seems that Swift is still surprised by the phenomenon she has created with ‘The Eras Tour’ and even, after two minutes of a deafening ovation after ‘Champagne Problems’, the artist has been totally incredulous upon hearing the noise it generated.

The ‘1989’ era, characterized by the color blue, has left ‘Blank Space’, ‘Shake It Off’, ‘Wildest Dreams’ and ‘Bad Blood’, followed by ‘The Tortured Poets Department’, with ‘But Daddy I Love Him’ – title printed on many t-shirts seen during the concert -, ‘So High School’, ‘Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?’, ‘Down Bad’, ‘Fortnight’, ‘The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived’ and ‘I ‘Can Do It With a Broken Heart’.

The last of the sections, in which blue sequin dresses have made more sense than ever. With ‘Midnights’, he said goodbye to the first date in Madrid performing songs like ‘Lavender Haze’, ‘Anti-Hero’, ‘Midnight Rain’, ‘Vigilante Shit’, ‘Bejeweled’, ‘Mastermind’ and, between screams and fireworks , has ended with ‘Karma’.

Other artists such as Aitana did not want to miss this first Taylor Swift date in Madrid, whom the audience greeted with screams minutes before Swift jumped on stage. According to Pollstar, ‘The Eras Tour’ is the “highest grossing” tour in history, exceeding 1 billion euros in revenue last December, a record figure.

During ‘The Eras Tour’ Taylor Swift has not only announced the launch of reissues (‘Taylor’s Versions’) of albums such as ‘Midnights’ or ‘Speak now’, but on April 19, after winning the Grammy for Best Pop Album, the artist surprised her followers with ‘The Tortured Poets Department’, a completely new work that has become “the most listened to album in history” on Spotify, reaching more than 300 million views in 24 hours.

With the so-called ‘Taylor’s Version’, Swift regains full ownership of her discography after her previous record label sold her work without her authorization in 2016.

Decibel limit

You cannot exceed the 53 decibels which establishes the Ordinance for Protection against Acoustic and Thermal Pollution (OPCAT), as reported by Legálitas. The legal company points out that, in the event that the noise limit set by law (53 decibels) is not exceeded by more than four decibels, the violation will be classified as “mild.” However, if this limit is exceeded by more than four decibels, but there is no “serious damage to the environment, the violation is serious.”

If the violation is minor, the penalty may be up to 600 euros. In the case of a serious infringement, the fine ranges between 601 euros and 12,000 euros, while, for very serious infringements, the sanction will be between 12,001 euros and 300,000 euros.
