Taylor Swift Cut These 5 Songs From The Eras Tour Movie

Spoilers ahead for Taylor Swift: Time Tour . When Taylor Swift announced her Eras Tour cinematic experience in August, it was reported that no songs would be cut from the concert film, even though it would be shorter than the extra-long show.

But as fans discovered when it premiered in theaters on October 12, Swift dropped five songs from the Eras Tour setlist.

Each of Swift's ten studio albums has at least one song featured in the film, with some not missing including her most recent record, Midnight , and her first Grammy winner for Album of the Year , "Fearless."

Thankfully, the editing doesn't affect the quality of the film. Directed by Sam Wrench, the film won applause from critics and earned a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes. It's long enough (2 hours and 45 minutes) to make the audience feel like they're at a real concert, even incorporating audience reactions and fan chants into the film.

So, if you want to be prepared before heading to the cinema, here are five songs you won't hear.


Key track 5 from Swift's "Lover" appeared at the end of the "Lover" performance on the Eras tour. In the movie, she cuts directly into the Fearless sequence.

Usually "This Damn Season" is the first song Evermore performs. HAIM was the opening act on the show, which was filmed in Los Angeles, and Swift replaced it with their collaboration "No Body, No Crime." Neither song made it into the movie.


"Long Live" was a late addition to the Eras tour. Swift added it to the setlist during a July 7 performance in Kansas City to commemorate the release of "Speak Now" (Tyler's version). Her band walked the show with her, celebrating their shared journey. While the nostalgic performance didn't appear in the movie, it felt fitting that the song was used as the ending theme.

Swift's only ballad single, "Cardigan," was the album's tour finale. This is arguably the strangest omission from the film, as the song was a Grammy-nominated No. 1 hit. The seamless transition of “styles” across the tracklist is also one of the show’s most subtle highlights.

Additionally, the poetic "Seven" interlude that served as a prelude to the folkloric performance was also removed from the film, a more understandable decision.

"Wildest Dreams"

Although "1989" (Taylor's version) was about to be released, the "1989" performance was cut short in the film and "Wild Dreams" was cut.
