Taylor Swift Surprises Sweden Eras Tour Crowds with 3 Extra ‘Tortured Poets Department’ Songs at 3 Sold-Out Shows

Taylor Swift’s “Female Rage: The Musical” was all the rage in Sweden!

Swift, 34, played three sold-out Eras Tour shows at Stockholm’s Friends Arena from May 17 to May 19, just a week after she coined “Female Rage: The Musical” at her shows in Paris to describe the part of the setlist with seven songs from her new The Tortured Poets Department (TTPD) album.

The 14-time Grammy winner also gifted each night with an extra song from TTPD, all played acoustically either on piano or guitar: “Peter” on Friday, “Guilty as Sin” on Saturday and “How Did It End?” on Sunday.

The anticipation to witness her perform that TTPD era in person intensified for Swifties after the superstar’s TAS Rights Management company filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to trademark “Female Rage: The Musical” on May 11 ahead of the Sweden stop.

All three shows opened with the updated intro mashup that now includes Swift singing “The Tortured Poets Department” along with her other album titles before she appeared onstage to start her 46-song setlist.

Later in the shows, Swift launched into the TTPD era with “But Daddy I Love Him” before singing “So High School,” a song about her boyfriend Travis Kelce, 34, who recently attended an Eras Tour show in Paris.

From there, Swift rolled through “Down Bad,” “Fortnight,” “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived” and “Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?” before ending the TTPD era with “I Can Do It with a Broken Heart.”

Swift’s Sweden sold-out shows were also record-breaking ones.

“They also gave me this crazy news earlier today: The crazy news is … you have made this the most-highly attended show ever in this stadium,” Swift said at the first Sweden show. “You broke the all-time attendance record. You guys are absolutely wild.”

The previous record of 58,163 people inside Friends Arena was achieved in 2019 for the Avicii Tribute Concert featuring David Guetta, Rita Ora and Kygo. The venue can hold as many as 65,000 people for concerts.

Swift will wrap up May in Portugal for two shows and Spain for two shows.

The Eras Tour will continue throughout Europe all summer before finishing in London in August. Swift will then head back to North America for shows in Toronto and Vancouver before doing more shows in the U.S.
