On May 25, Taylor Swift captivated her audience at the second of her Eras Tour shows in Lisbon, Portugal, with a deeply emotional speech that left many fans feeling a profound connection with the pop superstar.

Standing center stage, Swift expressed her overwhelming joy and appreciation for the Portuguese crowd, calling her time there “an absolute dream.”

“I’ve just never seen a crowd like this in my life,” she said, visibly moved. The pop icon continued by explaining how the Eras Tour was meticulously designed to encapsulate her favorite moments from past tours, allowing fans to share in those cherished memories. 

“We are currently in the Red era,” Swift explained, referencing one of the many thematic segments of her expansive show. She then reminisced about her previous albums, such as Fearless, Speak Now, and Red, and the tours that accompanied them. Despite the fun and memories made during those tours, Swift confessed, “the one thing that I wish I would have done differently is I wish I could have brought every one of those tours to come see you in Lisbon.”

Swift’s acknowledgment of Lisbon’s unique place in her touring history struck a chord with the audience.

This concert series marked her first and second performances in Portugal, making these shows particularly special for both Swift and her fans. The singer emphasized how she designed the Eras Tour to blend all her past touring memories into one grand experience.

“That’s why I think I’m having this much fun with you on this tour,” she shared, as the crowd erupted in cheers.

The emotional high continued as Swift spoke of the joy she felt looking out at the audience, “There have been moments in this show already where I like, forget what I’m supposed to do next or what I’m supposed to say because I’m just so distracted by how much fun you’re having and how you’re performing in the audience. I love this.”

Swift’s connection with her audience is a testament to her skill as a performer. She elaborated on the profound impact of seeing her fans so engaged, saying, “You’re just so in the moment and I cannot tell you how special that is for us as performers to get to look out and make eye contact with you and connect with you in this way.”

Her gratitude culminated in a heartfelt acknowledgment of how much it meant for her to perform in Lisbon, a sentiment that only deepened the bond between her and her audience.

Before launching into a performance of the 10-minute version of “All Too Well,” a fan-favorite track from her Red album, Swift added, “There is, before I start crying, one song that I want to play you from the Red album if you happen to have about ten minutes to spare.
