Taylor Swift Plays Acoustic Versions of Her ‘Favorite Songs’ in Honor of the Eras Tour’s 113th Show

At every Eras Tour concert, thousands of Swifties cross their fingers that Taylor Swift will play one of their favorite songs during the acoustic section. But at the singer’s first night in Zürich Tuesday (July 9), she played some of her own top picks.  


The extra special surprise song section came in honor of the global trek’s 113th show. As Swift’s lucky number is famously 13, the benchmark couldn’t go without being mentioned.  

“This is actually our 113th show of the Eras Tour, and that’s my favorite number, which I never mention,” she quipped, according to Entertainment Tonight. “I just thought since it was my favorite number, I’d do some of my favorite songs for the acoustic section.” 

The 14-time Grammy winner went on to play a mashup of “All You Had to Do Was Stay” and “Right Where You Left Me” on guitar. “You were all I wanted, but not like this,” she sang from the 1989 track before seamlessly transitioning into the Evermore bonus song: “Did you ever hear about the girl who got frozen?/ Time went on for everybody else, she won’t know it.” 

But Swift’s first show at Letzigrund Stadium marked more than one noteworthy occasion. July 9 is also a longtime Swiftie holiday, as it’s the date mentioned in her Speak Now ballad “Last Kiss” — so of course, the musician played that one next. 

“You can plan for a change in the weather and time/ But I never planned on you changing your mind,” she crooned while playing piano, blending in lyrics from her Red lullaby “Sad Beautiful Tragic.” “‘Cause we had a beautiful magic love there/ What a sad beautiful tragic, beautiful tragic…” 

The “Anti-Hero” singer will take the stage in Sweden once again Wednesday (July 10), after which she’ll move on to Milan for two nights at San Siro Stadium July 13-14. The Zürich shows follow three Eras performances in Amsterdam, where Swift seemingly celebrated the one-year anniversary of boyfriend Travis Kelce’s first time attending an Eras Tour show — aka the genesis of their love story — by performing a lovey-dovey mashup of “Mary’s Song,” “Everything Has Changed” and “So High School,” which fans believe the Kansas City Chiefs tight end inspired.
