Surviving the Eras Tour: Dublin Edition

Niamh Ryan

Calling all Irish Swifties: We are officially two weeks away from seeing the The Eras Tour live in the Aviva.

We’re all buzzing with anticipation, so here’s everything you need to know to prepare for the Eras Tour in Dublin.

When and where?

Taylor will be playing the Aviva Stadium on Landsdowne road on Friday 28th, Saturday 29th, and Sunday 30th June.

Doors will open at 5pm, and supporting act Paramore will take the stage at approximately 6pm.

With a three and a half hour show to put on and a curfew for the venue being 11pm, Taylor will most likely begin the show between 7-7:30pm.

How do I get there?

The last weekend of June is set to be particularly busy, with Longitude, Pride, and other matches and concerts taking place.

Transport services recommend allowing extra time to get to the venue.

The Aviva Stadium can be reached by train, Dart, and bus services.

Bus routes that serve the stadium are the 1, 4, 7, 7a, 38, 38a, 47, C1 and C2.

Grand Canal Dock Station will be closed after the concert.

However, Irish Rail have confirmed that extra commuter and Dart services will be available before and after the concert.

What should I bring?

Don’t be alarmed by the ‘survival kits’ going viral on social media. In fact, the less you bring the quicker you’ll get through security.

The Aviva Stadium has updated their statement about bags, saying that “no bags (with the exception of small handbags) will be allowed into the stadium.”

This means any tote bags, back bags, or large shoulder bags will no be permitted.

Prohibited items from the stadium include umbrellas, selfie sticks, large-lens cameras, and weapons of any kind.

Given the unpredictable Irish weather, a rain poncho is ideal, as well as suncream and sunglasses.

The Aviva Stadium is also a no smoking environment, which includes vapes and E-cigarettes.

Can I still get tickets?

If buying last minute tickets, always be vigilant of scammers and buy from reliable websites such as Ticketmaster.

The tickets are in extremely high demand, so people will be raising their prices astronomically.

For anyone that has tickets but is worried about their status on Ticketmaster, fear not. Tickets will be properly available with barcodes a week before the event.

What’s the setlist?

There are 10 sets in the concert altogether, so if you need to brush up on lyrics, now is your chance. Here’s every song in order:


  • Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince
  • Cruel Summer
  • The Man
  • You Need to Calm Down

Surprise songs

Two songs (or mashups of 2-4 songs) played on guitar and piano.

The songs are different each night, though she does repeat them.


  • Lavender Haze
  • Anti-Hero
  • Midnight Rain
  • Vigilante Shit
  • Bejeweled
  • Mastermind
  • Karma

What will the surprise songs be?

I lie awake at night thinking of this, and I have a few very hopeful predictions.

Here are some songs she hasn’t played on this leg of the tour:

  • The Last Time (Red)
  • coney island (evermore)
  • I Did Something Bad (Reputation)
  • Mean (Speak Now)
  • Holy Ground (Red)
  • Teardrops on my Guitar (Taylor Swift)
  • the lakes (folklore)

Will she announce anything in Dublin?

Fans were convinced the star would announce something big at her 100th show on June 13th in Liverpool, but no such luck.

Most are predicting Reputation (Taylor’s Version) to be announced sometime in Europe, and Dublin could be a contender.

On June 30th 2019, Swift took to social media to announce that the rights to her music had been sold. Since then, she’s been rerecording her first six albums to gain the rights back.

Not only does the date line up with her Dublin shows, Serpentine Avenue in Dublin leads to the Aviva Stadium. As we know, snakes play a big part in the theme of the Reputation album.

Fingers crossed!

Last tips

Above all else, prioritise the safety of yourself and others.

Make sure to eat beforehand and stay hydrated throughout the concert.

Test out your outfit beforehand to make sure it’s comfortable for the day – especially your shoes if you’re standing.

See you all there!
