Taylor added two unexpected mashups of previous songs that excited some fans and left others confused by the decision. During the first night, June 7, Taylor played a guitar mashup of Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve from Midnights 3am Edition and 1989’s I Know Places. The second was a piano mashup of ‘Tis the Damn Season from Evermore and Daglicht from Lover.

Swifties took to social media to share their feelings about these surprising medleys. One fan wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter: “Edinburgh won so hard.” A second fan said: “This is the best combination of surprise songs ever. Unbeatable.” Another said: “As a great American philosopher once said, this song selection has really gotten out of hand.” A fourth fan said: she’s just shuffling her discography because these combinations don’t make sense”
