Review: Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour – Houston, Texas

Welcome to the Eras Tour

All the TikTok videos and livestreams in the world could not accurately portray the excitement that comes from attending the Eras Tour. Taylor Swift transports fans through 10 studio albums in the most beautiful, cinematic experience that I’ve ever had. And I fear I cannot portray how great it was in such few words, but I will give it my best shot.

There’s so much respect to be given to Taylor for putting on a 3.5 hour show with absolutely no boring moments. She does not waver in her ability to hit every note, all while dancing, running, and changing into countless stunning outfits. Taylor Swift is a star in a league of her own. First off, she starts the show with “Miss Americana” and “Heartbreak Prince” off of her album, Lover. Introducing the Eras tour to the 70,000+ fans that were in attendance at NRG Stadium on April 23rd, you could feel the ground shaking from the cheering. From the moment she stepped onto the stage, I, along with everyone else in the room, was completely and utterly entranced.

Can You Feel This Magic In The Air?

Taylor spared no detail with this tour. Every outfit complemented each era. The stage transformed over and over, from a wooden house for Folklore, to the dramatic snake backdrop for Reputation. One of my favorite eras is Reputation, so watching Taylor’s set during “Look What You Made Me Do” was iconic to say the least. The stage was filled with dancers representing each of her previous eras. It’s one thing to acknowledge that Taylor has a massive and ever-changing discography. But to see it in person? There’s so much to be proud of – both as a fellow Swiftie and as a music lover overall.

Lastly, I have to recognize the artistry that is Taylor’s performances of “Tolerate It” and “All Too Well.” In the first, she sets the table and transports us to a heart-wrenching dinner with her significant other. There was such beauty in the simplicity; it was straight from a movie. And naturally, “All Too Well (10 Minute Version)” is a gem of its own, but to have the crowd screaming it together was ethereal in itself.

NRG Stadium (Taylor’s Version)

In honor of Taylor’s three consecutive sold out shows in Houston, NRG Stadium tacked on (Taylor’s Version) to the end of the venue name. It became a place of friendship bracelets, sequined dresses, and shows 11-13 of the Eras Tour. As the show went on, I watched as fans sang their hears out, tears glistening in their eyes. The girls next to me held hands during Marjorie, eyes never leaving Taylor as she captured the audience with her vocals. At one point, even Taylor herself let a few tears fall, overwhelmed by the energy and love that filled the stadium after a beautiful performance of “Champagne Problems.” It was a moment unlike any other. My only wish was that I could encapsulate that feeling and hold onto it forever.

Overall, Taylor put on the show of a lifetime. I’ve seen over a hundred artists perform, and they don’t light a candle to the Eras Tour. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to witness such a milestone in her expansive career. If she hasn’t yet visited a city near you, look for tickets. I guarantee you’ll have a night to remember.
