Taylor Swift's Eras Tour continues to be full of surprises for Swifties!

During her two-night stay at Lisbon's Estádio da Luz, the 34-year-old singer performed a beautiful acoustic mashup of ‘The Tortured Poets Department,’ the title track of her chart-topping album, alongside ‘Now That We Don't Talk’ – a vault track from 1989 (Taylor's Version). 

This marked the first time fans were treated to a live rendition of the new song. Later in the show, she delivered another surprise mashup, this time seated at a flower-adorned piano. 

Here, she belted out the fan-favorite ‘You're on Your Own Kid’ from Midnights, seamlessly transitioning into ‘Long Live’ from Speak Now, which was originally removed from The Eras Tour concert film, leaving fans dismayed.

While Swift captivated audiences in Lisbon, her boyfriend, NFL star Travis Kelce, remained stateside. 

However, the 34-year-old tight end has been showing his support, making appearances in Europe to catch some of her tour dates. During Swift’s time in Portugal, Kelce was spotted enjoying a Dallas Stars hockey game.

The Portugal shows follow a record-breaking tour stop in Stockholm, Sweden, which also featured a wardrobe malfunction.

A now-viral TikTok video captured Swift struggling with her blue dress, revealing a gold crop top before a crew member came to her assistance.

In between captivating European crowds, Swift squeezed in a romantic getaway with Kelce to Lake Como, Italy. The couple documented their rainy boat ride on their final day in the picturesque celebrity haven.

The Eras Tour continues to move across Europe, with Swift next heading to Madrid, Spain, for another two-night concert series.
