Taylor Swift surprise songs at first Edinburgh Murrayfield UK Eras Tour show

Taylor Swift kicked off her Eras Tour in the UK on Friday night in front of a sell-out crowd at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh.

The American pop icon performed her first show of the UK leg of the tour which will also head to Liverpool, Cardiff, and London later this month.

The show, which has been touring the US and rest of the world, takes fans through the different eras of her career, from her self-titled 2006 debut up to the recently released The Tortured Poets Department.

Fans heading to the show can expect to hear favourites such as Shake it Off, i Knew You Were Trouble, and Bad Blood. However, a staple of each of her shows so far as been the inclusion of two surprise songs each night.

Not only are they a surprise, but they are either performed on acoustic guitar or piano too adding yet another unique element to each show.

And her first show in the UK on Friday was no different with Taylor singing two 'surprise' songs. They were 'Would've Could've Should've' from 'Midnights' and 'Tis the Damn Season' from "Evermore'.

As part of her UK tour, Taylor is playing three shows in Edinburgh from June 7 to 9, followed by another three dates in Liverpool's Anfield Stadium from June 13 to 15. She will then head to Cardiff on June 18 before arriving in London for three big shows at Wembley Stadium from June 21-23.
