Glendale, Ariz. (AP) – Taylor Swift opened her US concert series with the three-hour tour of her career.

Swift kicked off the first concert of the 27-date Eras Tour with a six-song set from her album “Lover” on Friday night at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, where the Super Bowl was played a month earlier.

Swift, who hasn’t toured since 2018, said at the start of the show, “I don’t know how to address how this makes me feel right now.”

She ended the concert with a seven-song set from her latest album, “Midnights”, with the song “Karma”.

In between she played sets of songs from most of her albums – and just one, “Tim McGraw,” from her 2006 self-titled debut. In the end it took her 44 songs to complete in her 17-year career and just over three hours.

After not touring for their previous three albums, this concert series aims to play catchup by providing live debuts of many of those songs. When Swift announced the tour in November, she called it “a journey through the musical eras of my career (past and present!).

Swift acknowledged the Ticketmaster outcry that marred the tour’s run-up, when she told the crowd of over 70,000 that she understood it took them “a lot of effort” to be there.

After another show at the same venue on Saturday night, the tour heads to Allegiant Stadium outside Las Vegas and then to AT&T Stadium near Dallas.

It ends with two Los Angeles-area shows in August.
