  • Taylor Swift’s blockbuster Eras Tour resumed Thursday in Nanterre, France.

  • Swift altered the set list to include songs from her new album, “The Tortured Poets Department.”

  • The current Eras Tour set list, which includes 46 various hits and deep cuts, is cataloged below.

Taylor Swift is back on the road for her record-breaking, economy-altering Eras Tour.

The stadium series kicked off last year in Glendale, Arizona, and quickly became a sensation. After making stops across the US, Mexico, South America, Japan, Australia, and Singapore, Swift will continue to perform throughout 2024 in Europe, plus a second North American leg scheduled for later this year.

On Thursday, Swift resumed The Eras Tour in France after a multi-week hiatus.

During that break, Swift released her 11th studio album, “The Tortured Poets Department” — so she adjusted the original 44-song set list to include brand new tracks, though other fan favorites (including “The Archer,” “The 1,” and “Tolerate It”) were cut for time.

The updated show stretches for over three hours and includes 46 songs. The complete set list is cataloged below, in order of Swift’s performance.

“Cruel Summer” was released as the second track on 2019’s “Lover” and never promoted as a single.

However, once The Eras Tour was underway, the song experienced a delayed surge in popularity and became Swift’s milestone 10th chart-topper on the Billboard Hot 100.

“The Man”

“These are songs that I have written about my life or things I felt at one point in time,” she says in the concert movie. “But after tonight, when you hear these songs out and about in the world, my dream is that you’re gonna think about tonight, and the memories we made here together.”

“Fearless”

“Blank Space” was released as a single on November 10, 2014.Taylor Swift/YouTube

“Blank Space” is a widely celebrated satire about Swift’s reputation as a “serial dater.”

“‘She only writes songs to get emotional revenge on guys. She’s a man-hater. Don’t let her near your boyfriend,'” Swift explained at the time. “It was just kind of excessive and, you know, at first it was hurtful and then I kind of found a little comedy in it.”

The song dethroned “Shake It Off” at No. 1 on the Hot 100, making Swift the first and only woman in history to replace herself in the chart’s top spot. (She has since done it twice.)

“Shake It Off”

“Shake It Off” was released as a single on August 19, 2014.Taylor Swift/YouTube

“Shake It Off” was released as the lead single from “1989,” Swift’s official pivot from country to pop music.

“Bad Blood” was released as a single on May 17, 2015.Taylor Swift/YouTube

The remix includes a feature from Kendrick Lamar, who returned to rerecord his verse for “1989 (Taylor’s Version).”

“But Daddy I Love Him”

Following the release of her massive double album, “The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology,” Swift added seven brand-new songs to The Eras Tour setlist.

“So High School”

“So High School” is widely presumed to be about Swift’s current boyfriend, NFL star Travis Kelce. The song’s lyrics seem to reference their different professions: “You know how to ball, I know Aristotle.”

“Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?”

“Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?” is the 10th track on “The Tortured Poets Department.”Kevin Mazur/TAS24/Getty Images for TAS Rights Management

Swift is the only songwriter credited for “Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?”

The song title is likely inspired by “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” — a celebrated play written by Edward Albee that tackles themes of truth versus illusion, fate versus choice, and feeling trapped.

“Down Bad”

“Down Bad” is a heartsick serenade that compares falling in love to being abducted by aliens.

“Fortnight”

“Fortnight” is the first track on “The Tortured Poets Department.”Taylor Swift/YouTube

“Fortnight” was promoted as the lead single from “The Tortured Poets Department,” alongside a music video that costars Post Malone and references “Dead Poets Society.”

“The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived”

“The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived” is the 14th track on “The Tortured Poets Department.”Kevin Mazur/TAS24/Getty Images for TAS Rights Management

“The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived” is a scathing breakup song that may have been inspired by Matty Healy, whom Swift dated while writing “The Tortured Poets Department.” According to reports, their relationship lasted about one month.

“I Can Do It With a Broken Heart”

“I Can Do It With a Broken Heart” is the 13th track on “The Tortured Poets Department.”Kevin Mazur/TAS24/Getty Images for TAS Rights Management

In a meta twist, “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart” was apparently inspired by The Eras Tour itself. The lyrics seem to reference a string of concerts last year, when Swift felt “miserable” but continued to perform as usual (“They said, ‘Babe, you gotta fake it ’til you make it,’ and I did”).

Surprise Song No. 1

During each show on The Eras Tour, Swift performs a two-song acoustic set that changes every night. The first song is always played on acoustic guitar.

The first-ever surprise song Swift played in Arizona was “Mirrorball.” For the first stop on the European leg, she chose the “Midnights” bonus cut “Paris.”

Surprise Song No. 2

The second surprise song of the evening is always played on the piano.

In Arizona, Swift’s first-ever surprise song on piano was “Tim McGraw,” the lead single from her 2006 debut album. For night one in France, Swift played the “Tortured Poets” heartbreaker “Loml.”

“Lavender Haze”

“Lavender Haze” is the opening track on Swift’s 10th studio album “Midnights.”

“Anti-Hero”

“Anti-Hero” was released as a single on October 21, 2022.Taylor Swift/YouTube

“Anti-Hero” was promoted as the lead single from “Midnights.” It debuted at No. 1 and became Swift’s biggest hit to date, reigning atop the chart for eight weeks.

The same week that “Anti-Hero” arrived in the top spot, Swift became the first and only artist in history to occupy the entire top 10 on the Hot 100.

“Midnight Rain”

“Midnight Rain” is the sixth track on “Midnights.”Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for TAS Rights Management

“Midnight Rain” doubles as a breakup song and an ode to Swift’s own ambitions: “He wanted it comfortable, I wanted that pain / He wanted a bride, I was making my own name,” she sings, calling back to the rejection of ’50s gender roles in “Lavender Haze.”

“Vigilante Shit”

“Vigilante Shit” is the eighth track on “Midnights.”John Shearer/Getty Images for TAS Rights Management

Put simply, “Vigilante Shit” is about getting revenge. Many fans believe the song was inspired by Scooter Braun, who purchased Swift’s back catalog in 2019. Less than two years later, he sold Swift’s master recordings to a private equity company.

“Bejeweled”

“Bejeweled” is the ninth track on “Midnights.”Taylor Swift/YouTube

The music video for “Bejeweled” includes a variety of celebrity cameos, including Laura Dern, the Haim sisters, and Dita Von Teese.

“Mastermind”

In the chorus of “Mastermind,” Swift seems to serenade her longtime fans: “What if I told you I’m a mastermind? / And now you’re mine.”

The song also references Swift’s penchant for Easter eggs and her keen business acumen, which has allowed her to build a billion-dollar empire.

“I’m sick of women not being able to say that they have strategic business minds — because male artists are allowed to,” Swift told Rolling Stone in 2019. “And so I’m sick and tired of having to pretend like I don’t mastermind my own business.”

“Karma”

“Karma” was released as a single on May 1, 2023.Taylor Swift/YouTube

Swift closes the elaborate show with “Karma,” a song that mocks her enemies and salutes her own longevity: “Ask me what I learned from all those years / Ask me what I earned from all those tears / Ask me why so many fade, but I’m still here.”
