Taylor Swift Performs ‘Tortured Poets Department’ Title Track Live in Portugal


Taylor Swift is dazzling the crowd in Portugal with some new — and old — surprise songs!

The “So High School” singer, 34, performed her second Eras Tour show at Estádio da Luz in Lisbon, Portugal, on Saturday, May 25. Swifties present at the show (and online) waited with bated breath to see which tracks the pop star would perform as her traditional “surprise” songs — and she definitely delivered.

In a video shared on social media by a Swift fan account, the singer can be seen performing an acoustic guitar mashup of “The Tortured Poets Department,” the title track of her record-breaking new album, for the first time, along with “Now That We Don’t Talk” from the 1989 (Taylor’s Version) vault.

Later in the show, Swift introduced yet another surprise mashup, this time sitting down at her piano — which was decorated with painted flowers — to sing “You’re on Your Own Kid,” a fan-favorite track off Midnights, and “Long Live,” one of her early tracks from the 2010 record Speak Now.

Meanwhile, Swift’s Super Bowl-winning boyfriend, Travis Kelce, remained back in the U.S. — although he has been popping over to Europe, including Italy, to spend some time with her during this leg of the Eras Tour. While Swift performed in Portugal on Saturday night, Kelce, 34, attended a Dallas Stars hockey game against the Edmonton Oilers. The Texas team captured the NFL star chatting with friends in a private box.

Swift’s Portugal shows come days after her record-breaking tour stopped in Stockholm, Sweden, where the “I Can Do It with a Broken Heart” singer had a very sparkly wardrobe malfunction during her third show in the city on May 19.

“Talk amongst yourselves,” Swift says in a TikTok video captured by a fan, before appearing to struggle with her blue wrap dress, partially unwrapping it to reveal the shiny gold bra top that she wears during the Tortured Poets Department section of the show. A crew member eventually came onstage to help her with the clothing issue, which also might have been related to her microphone.

Between performing for sold-out European crowds, Swift found time for a romantic getaway with Kelce in Lake Como, Italy, where the pair captured memories during a rainy day on a boat on their final day at the beloved celebrity getaway spot on May 17.

She wore a tan trench coat when the boat docked near the village of Bellagio, where the couple enjoyed a meal at a restaurant called Locanda La Tirlindana.

As the Eras Tour rolls on, the “Down Bad” singer will next head to Madrid, Spain, for a two-night stint.
