Taylor Swift concert at Metlife Stadium: Eras tour

There are shows, then there’s the Taylor Swift Eras Tour.

The 3½-hour music and visual spectacle landed Friday, May 26, at MetLife Stadium to deafening squeals, cheers and screams from the 70,000 inside. There was music, dancing, video, pyrotechnics, confetti and a retrospective of Swift’s career so far.

The latest chapter? A collaboration with Ice Spice, hip-hop’s new breakout star. They’ve just released a remixed version of Swift’s single “Karma,” on which Spice raps. Not only was a new video debuted at MetLife, but Spice came out to perform the song live to close the show.

“I not only fell in love with her but I decided that she’s the entire future,” said Swift when introducing the video, which touches on classic motifs.

Ice Spice was a Venus in the shell.

Still, the night was all about Swift, framed in multimedia tableaus representing stages in her career. She came out in a sparkly body suit and spangled boots and did not look back, spanning her country pop roots to the synthy rhythms of her latest album, “Midnights.”

Swift was backed by a live band and a dance troupe of more than a dozen who were in constant motion, except when Swift took center stage by herself. She oozes magnetism and charm, and the audience — who hadn’t seen their hero on stage since 2018 — couldn’t get enough.
