Singer also mashes up “You’re On Your Own, Kid” and “Long Live” during Saturday show in Portugal

Taylor Swift brought The Tortured Poets Department itself to Lisbon, Portugal as she performed her new album’s title track live for the first time Saturday.

“This has become a tradition on the Eras Tour where this part of the show I try and be very creative and try to think of things you might want to hear, and I always do a different thing on the guitar and a different thing on the piano,” Swift said during her intro to the “Surprise Songs” portion of her set. “So this is actually the first time I’m ever playing this one live.”

On acoustic guitar, Swift then delivered “The Tortured Poets Department,” which included an outro included elements of her 1989 (Taylor’s Version) cut “Now That We Don’t Talk.”

For the second Surprise Song during the second Lisbon concert, Swift mashed up Midnights’ “You’re on Your Own, Kid” with Speak Now’s “Long Live”:


The previous night’s gig in Lisbon featured the live debut of TTPD’s “Fresh Out the Slammer.” Recent shows on the European leg of The Eras Tour have found Swift performing the debuts of “How Did It End?” and “Guilty as Sin?,” plus a medley dedicated to Sweden’s own super-producer Max Martin and a 1989 mashup in honor of it being the 89th Eras Tour show. 

The Eras Tour continues Wednesday and Thursday with a two-night stand at Madrid, Spain’s Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. The singer will spend the majority of the summer in Europe, with upcoming stops including Edinburgh, Scotland, Cardiff, Wales, and Liverpool and London, England.
