Taylor Swift Plays ‘Say Don’t Go,’ ‘It’s Time to Go’ at Last 2023 Show – Billboard

Written by on 27/11/2023


Taylor Swift put together a themed set of surprise songs for the final Eras Tour concert she’ll play in 2023.

The São Paulo, Brazil, crowd loudly chanted “Reputation” during Swift’s acoustic set Sunday (Nov. 26), but did not get Reputation surprise songs.

Instead, at Swift’s Sunday night concert at Allianz Parque stadium — the 13th international date on The Eras Tour, and the last date until the tour resumes in February 2024 — she performed “Say Don’t Go” and “It’s Time to Go,” treating the audience to live renditions of both for the first time ever.

The emotionally charged ballad “Say Don’t Go,” which Swift debuted live on guitar, was co-written with Diane Warren and just released in October as a vault track on 1989 (Taylor’s Version).

Then came the concert debut of “It’s Time to Go,” a track co-written with Aaron Dessner and featured on the deluxe version of 2020’s Evermore, on piano.

Swift has been performing two surprise songs each night of The Eras Tour and trying to not repeat them.

“There’s some songs that I still really, really wanna play,” said Swift at Sunday’s show.

But she explained that when she gets back on tour in 2024, she plans to reset and “make all the songs fair game” again.

Throughout the night, “Rep TV” trended on X as fans widely theorized that Swift might announce the release date of Reputation (Taylor’s Version) during her last concert of 2023. That theory grew stronger when Swift slipped up and seemingly said “Rep” instead of “Eras” Tour on stage, while introducing her acoustic set. “You’ve gotten in my head,” she quipped.

Although a Reputation (Taylor’s Version) announcement didn’t happen at the show, it was certainly a very special one for Swift. Earlier in the night, sitting at the piano during the Evermore era of the set, she told Swifties, “This has been the most magical adventure of my life.”

“We find ourselves on the last night of The Eras Tour 2023,” she said. “This tour is something that I thought of because I really wanted to celebrate all the times you guys have been there for me, and put together a show that incorporated all my favorite memories of touring — and I’ve been touring most of my life. I love traveling through these memories with you.”
