To celebrate the fact that Taylor Swift will be bringing her ‘reputation’ Stadium World Tour to New Zealand (click here for all the info on the show), we’ve gathered together a list of songs from the newly released album that we are particularly excited about hearing live.
And here are the songs…
#1. 'Getaway Car'
It’s truly our favourite song on ‘reputation’, hands down. We’re already picturing the epic production that will accompany the performance (I’m hoping for a real-life getaway car that Swift drives off in at the end of the song) in time with the lyrics, “I left you in a motel bar / Put the money in a bag and I stole the keys / That was the last time you ever saw me.”
#2. ‘End Game’
The song had its live debut at Swift’s iHeart Radio’s Jingle Ball set over the weekend, and it was just as epic as once could imagine - with back-up dancers dancing in unison with Swift, and the anthemic “Big reputation, big reputation,” is definitely going to be a stadium-singalong.
Watch some footage of it being debuted below…
The layers on layers of vocals in ‘Delicate’ give them an ethereal quality, and sees Swift questioning over and over, “Is it cool that I said all that? / Is it chill that you're in my head?” She’s at her most relatable on this song, and relatable tends to go down well in a live setting, so count us in.
#4. ‘Call It What You Want’
Having performed a stunning rendition of the song on ‘Saturday Night Live’ with an acoustic guitar, we’re guessing that ‘Call It What You Want’ will be performed as part of the B-stage segment of the show, where Swift normally pulls out the acoustic songs.

#5. ‘New Year's Day’
