Taylor Swift made a stunning return to Nashville this weekend. During a three-night stand at Nissan Stadium, Swift wowed fans with the release of Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) and teamed up with Phoebe Bridgers for a live debut of “Nothing New (Taylor’s Version)”. . Speaking of Bridgers, her supergroup Boygenius made a surprise appearance at Swift’s opening set, as did The 1975’s Matty Healy. Healy also spotted Swift headlining the set, fueling rumors that the two were in fact dating. And that was the first two nights.
Swift’s third and final show in Nashville was delayed by four hours due to the storm. As a result, Bridgers’ opening set was scrapped and Swift herself did not take the stage until after 10:00 p.m. local time. Nonetheless, the singer went ahead and staged an entire “Eras Tour” production of 45 songs while drenched in rain.
Swift said shortly after taking the stage, “There’s one element of a stadium tour that you can never plan for, and that’s the weather.” After that, through raindrops, it was proudly announced that it was an “Official Rain Show”.
The setlist included several special moments including another performance of “Nothing New” with the Bridgers. For the surprise singing segment of the evening, Swift welcomed Aaron Dessner for the Midnight’s live debut on “Willdv, Canv, Shudv” and “Mine.”
