Taylor Swift Excitedly Wishes Fans ‘Happy Pride Month’ at Eras Tour Show in Lyon: Watch

Taylor Swift and tens of thousands of fans spent the second day of Pride Month singing and dancing at the Eras Tour concert in Lyon, France, and the pop star was sure to mark the occasion during a sweet moment on stage Sunday (June 2).

The celebratory shout-out came toward the beginning of Swift’s three-hour-plus set, about halfway through the Lover era. While in the middle of performing her 2019 ode to the LGBTQ community, “You Need to Calm Down,” the 14-time Grammy winner excitedly cheered, “Happy Pride Month, Lyon!” 

In response, applause erupted throughout Groupama Stadium. The show marked Swift’s first performance of Pride Month 2024, as well as her first of two consecutive Eras stops in Lyon. 

Elsewhere during the concert, the “Fortnight” singer impressed her European crowd by speaking the locale’s native tongue instead of English. While still entrenched in the Lover era, she welcomed fans in French — “Bienvenue dans la Eras Tour!” — and later asked security in French to help a concertgoer in need of assistance.  

“Aidez-les, s’il-vous-plaît,” Swift said shortly before playing Evermore‘s “Champagne Problems” on piano, pointing staff in the right direction. “Can we get someone to go … right in the front. Awesome.”

Other highlights from the superstar’s first show in Lyon include her selection of surprise songs. Not only did she give The Tortured Poets Department‘s “The Prophecy” its live debut Sunday night, but she also performed a mashup of “You’re On Your Own, Kid” and “Fifteen” — seemingly giggling to herself about her romance with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce while singing the lyric, “In your life you’ll do things greater than dating the boy on the football team.”
