Later on Instagram, Swift promised the re-release will include “insane” unheard tracks. “I can’t believe they were ever left behind,” she wrote. “But not for long!”
Earlier in the evening, Swift got emotional about ending the U.S. leg of her tour. “This has been the most extraordinary, fun, wonderful experience of my life,” she told the crowd.
After “Champagne Problems,” fans erupted in an deafening 8-minute standing ovation. “You’re playing with my emotions right now,” a touched Swift responded. “I love you so much.”
Swift, who reportedly gifted her crew $55 million in bonuses, kicked off the Eras Tour in March. She has kept fans riveted with a hits-packed setlist and surprise appearances by special guests.
Throughout the tour’s run, Swift’s shows have attracted famous fans like Gigi Hadid, Meghan Markle and Reese Witherspoon. But her most special guests have always been the fans.
