What surprise songs did Taylor Swift perform on The Eras Tour? Here's the full list.
Taylor Swift's The Eras Tour is in full swing, and just as fans had hoped, Taylor has confirmed that she will be performing surprise songs on every single night of the tour.
If you've been a fan of Taylor for a while, you'll know that she always includes a surprise song or two in her tour set lists. The tradition goes all the way back to The Red Tour, and technically even further back to the Speak Now World Tour if you include the surprise covers she performed during that era.
With the tour now officially underway, the surprise songs are back, back, back again. There are 45 songs in the setlist already, which means she's got over 200 songs (!!) to choose from for the surprise slots.

Initially, Taylor told fans that she will only play each surprise song once, unless she messes it up. But during her final show of 2023, she confirmed that the rules had been reset for the upcoming 2024 shows. All surprise songs are now back on the table.
So, with that piece of information in mind, what surprise songs has Taylor Swift already performed on The Eras Tour and what can fans expect for the rest of the dates? Here's the full list. (We'll update this article after each tour date.)
The first surprise song that Taylor unveiled during the opening show of the tour was 'mirrorball' from folklore. She then went on to surprise the crowd with the opening track from her debut album, 'Tim McGraw'. The next night, she followed that up with another folklore track ('this is me trying'), and fan favourite 'State of Grace' from Red (Taylor's Version).
Taylor will be playing two surprise songs per show. After 66 dates in 2023, Taylor ended up playing an extra 124 songs, not including repeats or songs that weren't her own.
At the end of her 2023 Eras Tour shows, she confirmed that the full list of surprise songs will be completely reset. Here's the full list so far…
As of November 26th 2023, Taylor performed 19 from Red (Taylor's Version), 17 from Speak Now (Taylor's Version), 16 from 1989 (Taylor's Version), 15 from Fearless (Taylor's Version), 11 from Midnights, 11 from Taylor Swift, 10 from Reputation, 10 from Lover, 8 from evermore and 6 from folklore.
Plus one soundtrack song ('I Don't Wanna Live Forever) and one extra song that's not her own ('I miss you, I'm sorry' with Gracie Abrams).
In 2023, Taylor played an additional 124 songs from her own discography as surprise songs. The list has been reset for the 2024 tour dates.
At the start of the The Eras Tour, Taylor revealed that she had two rules when it comes to playing surprise songs more than once. Rule 1: If she messed up, she's allowed to play it again. Rule 2: Midnights songs are exempt and she can play them "however many times I want…"
However, on November 26th, during her final show of 2023, she confirmed that the list will be completely reset for the 2024 shows and ALL surprise songs that she's previously played have the chance to be performed again. So, if you're going to a London show and you're hoping to hear 'Clean'? It's now a strong possibility.
Based on the 2023 rules, here's the previous list of surprise songs that Taylor will definitely perform again, according to Taylor herself or fans who were there on the night:
Taylor performed 'Nothing New' with Phoebe Bridgers on the nights Phoebe appears as a support act, but the song was not one of the two surprise songs. Taylor could now perform the song again later down the line as a surprise song.
Taylor also performed 'No Body, No Crime' with HAIM on the nights they supported the show. It's possible that Taylor will now perform that one again, solo, later down the line.

With Taylor performing two surprise songs a night, it's pretty much a given that she will perform the majority of them before she finishes the entire tour. Taylor has now confirmed that she has reset the list for the 2024 dates, which means international fans heading to the Eras Tour will likely hear some repeats, as well as those she has not yet performed.
There's still plenty of tracks that Taylor has the option to perform. Here's all the songs that she has not yet performed as surprise songs:
Taylor's brand new album The Tortured Poets Department will be released on April 19th so fans will find out if she plans on singing those tracks as surprise songs after that date.
Alongside those listed album tracks, there's also several standalone and soundtrack songs that Taylor could add into the mix: 'Crazier', 'Only The Young', 'Carolina', 'I Heart?', 'Beautiful Eyes', 'Beautiful Ghosts'… And of course, 'Macavity' and 'Christmas Tree Farm'.
There's also the small possibility that she could potentially perform the songs she's featured on, maybe even with special guests: 'The Joker and the Queen', 'Two Is Better Than One', 'Renegade', 'Both of Us', 'Gasoline', 'Birch', 'Highway Don’t Care' and 'The Alcott'.
After unveiling her setlist on opening night, fans couldn't help but feel a little disappointed that Taylor only included one Speak Now song ('Enchanted') and one song from her self-titled debut album ('Tim McGraw'). It then turned out that 'Tim McGraw' was also a surprise song – it wasn't in the actual setlist.
So far, Taylor has performed a big chunk of the songs from those two albums as surprise songs already, but only one has officially been added to the setlist.
On July 7th and 8th, Taylor played 'Long Live' after 'Enchanted' during the Speak Now section for the first time. The song was then added to the official setlist.
Sadly, there is still no segment on the tour that celebrates the bops on her debut album.
Just when you thought the Eras Tour would remain a celebration of Taylor's 10 albums, she goes ahead an announces her surprise 11th album!
The Tortured Poets Department will be released on April 19th, and features 17 brand new songs. We won't know for sure if Taylor will change her setlist to accommodate the new songs, but it's possible that she will perform them as surprise songs.
Watch this space – we'll update this article with more information as soon as she heads back on tour after the release.
