Taylor Swift's Eras tour may last longer than you think

Theoretically, Taylor Swift could perform for over six hours on the Eras tour and still not have time to sing many of the songs fans want to hear. Most Swifties would be happy to spend the entire night with her, but she does have other shows to perform and other cities to visit, which naturally leaves fans wondering if the Eras Tour will actually last how long. Even though her latest album is titled Midnight , don't expect Swift to perform until midnight — but the Time Tour may be her longest show yet.

If Swift's past tours are any indication, Eras Tour concerts are expected to last at least two hours, which is roughly the duration of the Red Tour, 1989 World Tour and Reputation Stadium Tour. During these treks, Swift usually takes the stage between 8:45 and 9:00 p.m., ensuring the show ends by 11:00 p.m. Since all dates list a 6:30 pm start time, and each show has two opening acts, it's a safe bet that the Eras tour will have a similar schedule.

However, if the schedule obtained by opening night attendees and posted by a Twitter fan account is correct, Swift actually added a full hour to her usual performance time. This means that the tour of the times will last just over three hours.

Swift certainly has a lot to cover on this tour. She describes the Eras Tour as "a journey through the musical eras of my career," both past and present, meaning her setlist will include songs from all 10 of her albums. Complicating matters further, Swift has yet to tour her four latest albums: 2019's Lover , 2020's Followre and Evermore, and 2022's Midnights . Combined with her re-recorded " Fearless" and "From the Vault" tracks from "Red " on "Taylor's Version," Swift has over 100 new songs that she has yet to perform live. She can't please everyone and play through all of the game, but a three-hour runtime is a long time.

Of course, the show could have gone on even longer if Swift had brought in any surprise guests to perform. However, conversely, Swift has previously removed certain songs from the setlist to make room for the aforementioned guests, specifically on the Red and 1989 tours, so that's not a guarantee.
