  • Taylor Swift kicked off her Eras Tour in Glendale, Arizona on March 17.
  • Fans at the show gave live updates of the setlist as she took the stage.
  • Taylor will continue the U.S. leg of the tour until the beginning of August.

The Eras Tour began in Glendale, Arizona on March 17! Taylor Swift has been hard at work for months putting together this show for her fans. It is the singer’s first time touring since 2018, and expectations going into the tour were high. Since Taylor’s last tour, she’s released four albums, as well as two re-recorded versions of old albums. Speculation about which tracks would actually make the show’s setlist had been rampant amongst fans since Taylor announced the tour in November 2022.

On opening night, Taylor proved that she would be taking the crowd throughout her entire catalog of music on this tour. She started out with the Lover era, and continued on from there. Find out everything we know about the setlist and tour below:

Taylor Swift Eras Tour Setlist

Taylor did her best to keep everything about this show under wraps until night one, but fans outside the stadium have got to hear SOME of the songs that she she would be playing beforehand. However, nothing prepared anyone for what Taylor brought out on night one. Setlist updating live below:

  • “Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince”
  • “Cruel Summer”
  • “The Man”
  • “You Need To Calm Down”
  • “Lover”
  • “The Archer”
  • “Fearless”
  • “You Belong With Me”
  • “Love Story”
  • “Tis The Damn Season”
  • “Willow”
  • “Marjorie”
  • “Champagne Problems”
  • “Tolerate It”
  • “…Ready For It?”
  • “Delicate”
  • “Don’t Blame Me”
  • “Look What You Made Me Do”
  • “Enchanted”
  • “22”
  • “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”
  • “I Knew You Were Trouble”
  • “All Too Well (10 Minute Version)”
  • “Invisible String”
  • “Betty”
  • “The Last Great American Dynasty”
  • “August”
  • “Illicit Affairs”
  • “My Tears Ricochet”
  • “Cardigan”
  • “Style”
  • “Blank Space”
  • “Shake It Off”
  • “Wildest Dreams”
  • “Bad Blood”
  • “Mirrorball” (Acoustic), will change each night*
  • “Tim McGraw”
  • “Lavender Haze”
  • “Anti-Hero”
  • “Midnight Rain”
  • “Vigilante S***”
  • “Bejeweled”
  • “Mastermind”
  • “Karma”

The 33-year-old had hundreds of songs and ten albums to choose from when it came to curating this setlist. Since her last tour, she released the albums Lover, Folklore, Evermore and Midnights, as well as re-records of Fearless and Red. The re-records feature several new songs themselves, with additional tracks added that didn’t make the album cuts the first time around. One of those songs is the fan-favorite “All Too Well (10 Minute Version),” which won a Grammy award and various other accolades.

It’s also unclear whether or not Taylor will have the same exact setlist every single night, or if she’ll change things up each show. During the Reputation Tour, Taylor had one slot in the setlist where she played a different song from her vast catalog each night. This allowed fans to see her play tracks that she hadn’t sung live in years. Plus, Taylor is known to bring special guests onstage for her shows, so there’s always the possibility of different musical artists joining her to sing their own songs, as well.

Taylor Swift Eras Tour Dates

When Taylor first announced her Eras tour, she confirmed that the first leg would include 27 dates in the United States throughout spring and summer 2023. Of course, demand for the tickets was extremely high, so she doubled the amount of shows. As of March 2023, there are now 52 dates on the Eras tour (see below).

Plus, there’s sure to be more to come. In Taylor’s announcement post on Instagram, she made it clear that this was just the tour’s first leg. Plus, back in October 2022, the UK Store on Taylor’s website confirmed that dates in England were coming. Fans who preordered Taylor’s album Midnights in the store were given a “special presale code access for forthcoming and yet-to-be-announced UK show dates.” Subsequent legs of the tour have not been confirmed.

Taylor Swift Ticketmaster Controversy

When tickets for the Eras Tour went on sale, there was an unprecedented demand. Before the on-sale date, fans were able to sign up for a “verified fan” code, which was Ticketmaster’s attempt at eliminating bots from purchasing tickets. A lottery-style drawing was done, giving only a select number of fans pre-sale codes to purchase tickets.

Despite hundreds of thousands of fans not receiving codes and being put on a “waitlist,” Ticketmaster still crashed when hoards of Swifties flocked to the site on the Nov. 15 pre-sale date. Millions of people attempted to log into the sale at the same time, causing the site to crash. The chairman of Live Nation later revealed that 14 million fans were attempting to sign on at once, despite Ticketmaster only expecting 1.5 million based on the codes that had been given out.

Ticketmaster was forced to cancel the regular on-sale for the concert, due to lack of tickets remaining. Thousands of fans were not able to get tickets to the tour, leading to outrage and backlash against Ticketmaster. On Nov. 18, Taylor took to her Instagram Story to address the situation. She specifically called out Ticketmaster for not being able to handle the demand of the situation, despite assuring her that it would be covered.

“It goes without saying that I’m extremely protective of my fans,” Taylor wrote. “We’ve been doing this for decades together and over the years, I’ve brought so many elements of my career in house. I’ve done this SPECIFICALLY to improve the quality of my fans’ experience by doing it myself with my team who care as much about my fans as I do. It’s really difficult for me to trust an outside entity with these relationships and loyalties, and excruciating for me to just watch mistakes happen with no recourse. There are a multitude of reasons why people had such a hard time trying to get tickets and I’m trying to figure out how this situation can be improved moving forward. I’m not going to make excuses for anyone because we asked them, multiple times, if they could handle this kind of demand and we were assured they could. It’s truly amazing that 2.4 million people got tickets, but it really pisses me off that a lot of them feel like they went through several bear attacks to get them. And to those who didn’t get tickets, all I can say is that my hope is to provide more opportunities for us all to get together and sing these songs. Thank you for wanting to be there. You have no idea how much that means.”

That same day, Ticketmaster apologized for the fiasco in a statement on its website. The company apologized specifically to Taylor and her fans, while also attempting to explain how things got so out of control. Ticketmaster included statistics to show just how many people were coming to the site to purchase tickets, and explained how this astronomical number was different than what they’ve experienced in the past. “Historically, around 40% of [verified] fans [with presale codes] actually show up and most purchase an average of 3 tickets,” the post explained. “Around 1.5 million [of 3.5 million who signed up] people were sent codes to join the on-sale for all 52 dates.”

The post continued, “This time, the staggering number of bot attacks, as well as fans who didn’t have codes, drove unprecedented traffic on our site, resulting in 3.5 BILLION total system requests.” The company also assured fans that they were “always working to improve the ticket buying experience.”

In Jan. 2023, Ticketmaster/Live Nation faced a Senate hearing about whether or not its monopoly on the ticket-buying industry is what led to this controversy. During the hearing, the CEO of Live Nation once again apologized to Taylor and her fans. “We need to do better and will do better,” he insisted, per Associated Press. The Ticketmaster higher-ups were grilled by the Senate during the hearing, and many Senators even pulled out Taylor Swift song lyrics to make their points. It remains to be seen whether or not this hearing will have any effect on the company in the future.

Jimmy Fallon’s Kids: Meet His Two Adorable Daughters

Published

  • Jimmy Fallon is an award-winning television host who has led ‘The Tonight Show’ since 2014
  • Jimmy has two daughters with his wife, Nancy
  • Both their daughters were born via surrogate and have turned into curious young kids

Jimmy Fallon is a father by day and an Emmy Award-winning television host by night. The Tonight Show host became a father for the first time when his daughter, Winnie, was born in 2013. Her little sister, Frances, made her debut the following year. Jimmy, 48, shares both his girls with his wife, Nancy Juvonen, to whom he’s been married since 2007.

Frances and Winnie appear on Jimmy’s social media pages routinely and often made cameos on The Tonight Show while it was filmed at their home amid the coronavirus pandemic. “I really bonded with my daughters during that time because I was never normally home that long,” he recalled to PEOPLE in April 2021 of the “bizarre” time. “Usually I’m at work, so I got to really wake up and go to bed with them every single night for months. I think there was a real bond there that we’ll never forget.”

Read on to learn everything there is to know about Jimmy Fallon’s daughters, Frances and Winnie.

Winnie Rose Fallon

Winnie Rose Fallon was born on July 23, 2013 via surrogacy. Her arrival was a surprise to most people, including many of Jimmy’s co-workers.  “My wife and I had been trying a while to have a baby,” he told TODAY‘s  Savannah Guthrie in Aug. 2013. “We tried a bunch of things — so we had a surrogate.” He added, “We said, ‘We’re not going to tell anybody. It’d be just more fun if it’s just private between me and my wife. And then we get to introduce her to everybody.”

Now that Winnie is getting older, she’s grown into a curious child with various interests. In a 2021 Instagram post, Jimmy shared an image of her standing proudly with her drawing of a dog and said she requested that he share her art for all to see. “My daughters have discovered @clairesstores and they came home with some stuffed animals. Winnie drew a picture of one today and thought I should put it on the internet so that kids (or whoever, really!) can print it & color it for free,” he wrote. “Here ya go – third slide. Enjoy!” How sweet.

Winnie also loves animals, and in 2018, Jimmy revealed she had an animal-themed birthday party. “Winnie just turned five, which is a big deal to have a five-year-old in the house,” he told E! News. “I think this is the first birthday that she’s gonna remember, because when you throw these parties you’re like, ‘She’ll never remember this.’”

“We had a petting zoo … I mean we went for it, dude,” he continued. “I never had a birthday party like this. I would have like three friends and we’d go to McDonald’s and that was it. That was a big party for me, man. So this was like, she better remember this.”

Frances Cole Fallon

Frances Cole made her entrance into the world on Dec. 3, 2014. “Frances Cole Fallon officially entered the world at 8:45 a.m. on Dec. 3, weighing 5 lbs., 11 oz. and is 18.5 inches long,” a statement from Jimmy’s representative given to PEOPLE read. “Their new addition joins big sister, Winnie Rose, 16 months. The couple opted to keep their baby joy to themselves until their new daughter made her official debut. Both Fallon babies were born via surrogate.”

After taking a few days off from The Tonight Show to enjoy some family time, Jimmy came back bursting with pride and even showed a pic of his newborn daughter on the show. “That’s just a cute little baby, right?” he gushed. “I just want to say it’s just a big deal for us and I just want to thank everyone, the nurses and the doctors and our surrogate, who had our baby. There are angels in Dallas, Texas.”

France seems to enjoy partaking in activities with her older sister. In Jan. 22, Frances, Winnie, and their mom looked like they had the best snow day ever in matching retro-style snowsuits. And before that, Frances joined Winnie alongside their father to try what is supposedly the best crumb cake in the world.

It also appears that both kids don’t shy away from the camera. They starred alongside their father and mother in a Frito-Lay’s campaign that aired during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2021. Although they were happy to do the job, the comedian and writer admitted he wasn’t sure if he wanted his girls to be in the spotlight like that.

“I go, ‘I don’t know, man.’ Not about them getting [in] the business, but I don’t know if they’re good actors,” he told PEOPLE before the commercial debuted. “They’re not actor kids. I don’t know if they’re going to be good, this might waste everyone’s time.”

He decided to ask Nancy, who was excited about the possibility — and even signed herself up for the job, too. “And she was like, ‘I think you gotta, the kids are cute. If the kids are doing it, I’m going to do it too, so let’s just do it as a family,’” he recalled of their conversation. “It turned out to be great. They were good actors. My girls got a good laugh.”

Nothing says shade like quoting the iconic Mariah Carey! While on a coffee run in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix, 37, threw some shade at her co-star, Raquel Leviss, 28, who is the woman Tom Sandoval, 39, cheated on Ariana with (watch VIDEO HERE). When a paparazzi asked the blonde beauty if Raquel has “called to apologize“, Ariana responded with, “I don’t know who you’re talking about.”

To add fuel to the fire, Ariana was also asked how she felt about the upcoming reunion episode. She made it clear that it’s not an event she is excited about. “What do you think?”, she asked the camera person on Mar. 21. During the outing, the 37-year-old TV personality rocked a casual, yet chic, ensemble. Ariana opted for a pair of black leggings, an oversized black crewneck sweater, and black athletic sneakers. She accessorized her look with an on-trend small white purse and oversized sunglasses. She also tied her blonde tressed up in a messy updo for the afternoon outing.

Ariana’s outing comes one day after the midseason trailer for the hit reality show premiered. The trailer was released amid the ongoing “Scandoval” regarding Tom and Ariana’s breakup due to his affair with Raquel. Not only did Tom’s now-ex tell him she wants him to “die” in the clip, but she was also spotted skinny dipping with her friend, Brett Kenyon, who revealed his identity via TikTok on Tuesday.

Since Mar. 3, practically the entire Bravo TV fan base has been keeping tabs on the ongoing drama between these three. Not only was it revealed that Tom and Raquel had been having an affair for “months”, but it also took place during filming the show’s latest season. The rumors about their affair also began in the summer of 2022, however, Ariana did not become aware until just days prior to their public split. Season 10 of the hit show is currently airing on Bravo, with executive producer, Andy Cohen, confirming it will be a part of this season.

Not only has a plethora of the cast reacted to the split, including Kristen Doute, 40, Lala Kent, 32, James Kennedy, 31, and Katie Maloney, 36, to name a few, but Ariana also broke her silence on Mar. 16. “hi. where to begin? i want to express my most sincere gratitude for the outpouring of love and support i have received from friends, family, and people i’ve never even met in the last two weeks. when i have felt like i couldn’t even stand, you all have given me the strength to continue and seen me through my darkest hours,” her caption began.

“to say i have been devastated and broken is an understatement. however, i know that i am not in this alone. so many of my closest friends are also grieving this loss right now and reeling from this betrayal on so many levels. i am so f****** lucky to have the best support system in the world and i hope i can repay every single person for the love you have shown me. what doesn’t kill me better run,” Ariana concluded. As many know, Tom and Ariana dated for nine years, as they made their romance Instagram official in Feb. 2014. The next episode of Vanderpump Rules is set to air on Bravo on Mar. 22.
