It has been five years since she last went on tour. During that time, she has released four albums, including the Grammy Award-winning Folklore.
Her pandemic-imposed live absence was evidently a source of frustration, as her first performance was a three-hour, fifteen-minute spectacle featuring 44 songs from her career.
As she took the stage for the first night of her Eras tour, Swift told her fans, "I can't even go into how much I've missed you."
The star had stated that the performance would be "a journey through all of my musical eras," and demand for tickets was so high that Ticketmaster's systems gave way.
Despite this, the tour sold 2.4 million concert tickets in a single day, breaking the previous record held by an artist. At the first show, which took place at Arizona's State Farm Stadium and was attended by approximately 80,000 of those fans, Swift performed a wide range of songs from her extensive discography. The set was broken up into sections, one for each of her ten albums, showing her rise from a country girl to a pop star who topped charts to a lockdown-era folk singer (albeit with a muddled chronology).
She opened with Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince, a fan favorite from the Lover album of 2019, before transitioning into Cruel Summer's dreamy pop.
She took in the cheers of the audience while wearing a leotard with diamonds on it and being surrounded by dancers with elaborate peacock tails: " I don't know how to deal with everything and how I'm feeling right now.
"But first, let me say that you're making me feel great," With 16 dancers, multiple set and costume changes, and a long, illuminated catwalk leading to a second stage, the show is a huge production.
She appeared to dive into the stage at one point and swim to the middle of the stadium before emerging on a rising platform to perform Lavender Haze, her most recent single.
