Taylor Swift’s first show of the Reputation Stadium Tour was last night at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The Setlist, powered by Setlist.FM, is attached below. I expect this setlist to remain mostly unchanged throughout the tour. Overall, I’m a big fan. Swift includes songs from all eras, from Should’ve Said No to Love Story and Bad Blood to New Year’s Day. I’m even more excited about the tour knowing that the setlist is strong!
There is nothing better at a concert than being able to sing along to the show. It’s a great treat when you see your favorite artist or band and can (poorly?) join in on every song. But what can you do when you are seeing someone you don’t know as well? This issue arises a lot at music festivals where you will almost certainly not know everyone playing. What can you do? You can’t learn the words to every song in an artists catalog that quickly.
For me, the clear answer is Setlist.FM. I love this website. Setlist.fm is a crowdsourced platform for checking out artists’ setlists in advance. It’s the perfect tool for being prepared for any show. Curious about what Sir Paul McCartney played during his last show of 2017? What about Paul’s VIP soundcheck? Does Liam Gallagher play Wonderwall live? What songs do U2 play the most on their eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE tour?
I use this tool for almost every show I attend by building playlists on Spotify based on the tracks that get played at each show. Hopefully you start using this great platform as well!
