The concept of an “Era’s Tour” originated with Taylor Swift in 2023. It includes the artist’s best songs from not only their new album but previous albums.

“Eras tours have changed the way concerts feel as they bring a sense of nostalgia to fans and I prefer to hear songs I and a lot of other people grew up listening to,” Wyatt Madison ‘24 said.

Eras tours allow concert goers to experience songs they used to listen to live. A lot of Gen Z wouldn’t ever hear the songs they listened to when they were young because they were too young to go to concerts and artists used to only play songs from their newest albums.

“Eras tours are not as small and intimate as concerts used to be with more big spectacles but it’s also nice because it brings back emotions and feelings we all grew up with,” Mila Mora ‘24 said.

Due to the success of the Eras Tour a lot of other artists have started following in her footsteps. Artists such as The Weeknd, Drake, Beyonce, and Zach Bryan, with the first and most obvious being Drakes ‘It’s All A Blur” tour.

“I think since fans got so hyped over Taylor and other artists are seeing how well she succeeded in following in her footsteps such as Drake with his “It’s All A Blur” tour, said Junior Allegra Binkoski ‘25.

Although Eras tours are a successful new perspective of concert, the question is, what happens when artists have no other songs to perform at future concerts? Is it possible for Eras Tours to be a success if it limits artists’ abilities to perform in the future?

“I personally go to concerts to hear an artist I like seeing, not for the big spectacles. So, I feel like artists are going to quickly burn out and concerts are going to become more focused on visuals rather than singing,” Mila Mayo ‘25 commented.
