13 Best Moments From Taylor Swift’s April 29 Atlanta ‘Eras’ Concert: ‘High Infidelity’ & Making a Stadium Show Feel Intimate

There’s no bad seat on Taylor Swift‘s Eras Tour — especially if you’re fortunate enough to see her in a venue like Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, with its gorgeous halo screens in the round and wild three-night crowd that Swift truly seem to be enchanted to meet during this 52-date affair spanning her musical career.

The prolific singer-songwriter and powerhouse performer showed both sides of herself as an entertainer Saturday night (April 29), the second of a trio of concerts at the stadium. 65,639 people descended upon Atlanta — where signs on buildings read “A-Tay-L,” a play on ATL — for Swift’s April 29 show.

“Do you really wanna know where I was April 29?” is no longer just a rhetorical question from Swift’s lyric book. On this date in Swift history, she’s now delivered the live debut of “High Infidelity,” the Midnights (3AM Edition) bonus track on which that lyric exists. April 29 is now a core memory for a whole lot of fans.

The tour celebrates 10 eras of Swift with a 44-song setlist. She powers through for more than three hours, pausing only for a quick set or wardrobe change, or — as was the case at this stop in Atlanta — to banter with the crowd before select songs.

Her debut album doesn’t typically find itself on her setlist, and it didn’t on April 29. But Swift’s country roots, circa her high school days, are showcased in her Fearless set, when she twirls with her guitar in hand and plays some of her biggest early hits.

While she performs songs from every other album in her discography, the four she had yet to ever tour with — 2019’s Lover, 2020’s Folklore and Evermore, and 2022’s Midnights — get a lot of attention. “Cruel Summer,” “‘Tis the Damn Season,” “Betty” and “Lavender Haze” are all ones not to be missed in her singalong stadium setting. And without giving too much away, “Vigilante Shit” might elicit the loudest roar.

Here are 13 of the best things to happen at Swift’s Saturday night show in Atlanta.
