Taylor Swift Celebrates ‘Magical’ Nights in Madrid Amid Eras Tour


Taylor Swift had a “magical” time in Madrid, Spain. The pop star reflected on her latest Eras Tour stop on Friday, jokingly shouting from her proverbial rooftop. 

“I LOVE YOU FOREVER MADRID!!! No ability to convey my thoughts other than to just YELL that,” she wrote in an Instagram caption,  sharing a carousel of images from the shows. “We just got to spend 2 magical nights dancing and singing with the most electrifying, passionate crowds and I’ll never forget a second of it. I can’t thank you all enough. See you 🔜 Lyon!”

Swift performed back-to-back shows at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid, Spain, on Wednesday and Thursday. For the first night, she received support in the crowd from longtime pal Blake Lively and the HAIM sisters, Este Haim, Alana Haim and Danielle Haim. 

On Thursday, Lively was joined by her husband, Ryan Reynolds, for his first Eras outing. The Deadpool actor previously revealed that he was “excited” to attend the concert. 

“I’m about to go to the Madrid show,” Reynolds said in an interview on Today With Hoda and Jenna earlier this month. “Very excited, my wife and kids have been to five of them, five or six now.”

The couple share James, 9, Inez, 7, Betty, 4, and a fourth child whose name has not been revealed.  Swift famously name-dropped Lively and Reynolds’ daughters in her 2020 Folklore song, “Betty.” In the fictional tale of high school love, the 34-year-old pop star named the three key characters after her longtime friends’ kids. She performed that song during her first concert in Madrid.

In a separate interview on Today, Reynolds previously joked that he and Lively were waiting on Swift to tell them the name of their fourth baby after co-hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb asked if the child got a name-check on the singer’s newest album, The Tortured Poets Department

ET’s Rachel Smith later followed up with Reynolds about the youngster’s moniker, asking what they’re calling them while they wait for Swift to pick an official name. 

“Oh, all the letters are silent,” he quipped. “It just sort of sounds like a light breeze blowing through at this point, which is really hard if you get mad at the child for something…Yeah, it doesn’t work.”

The “Fortnight” singer continues the European leg of her Eras tour with a return to France at Groupama Stadium on June 2 and 3. 

Earlier this month, Swift performed at the Paris La Défense Arena as boyfriend Travis Kelce looked on. During her 87th Eras Tour show — a significant number as it coincides with Kelce’s jersey for the Kansas City Chiefs — the 34-year-old songstress appeared to pay tribute to her beau’s team colors with her wardrobe, donning a glittery yellow and red two-toned costume during the 1989 portion of her set. (For his part, Kelce has previously said that 1989 is his favorite album of Swift’s.)

A source told ET, “Taylor’s 87th show had significance not only for the reference to Travis’s football jersey number, but because of the many Easter eggs hidden in the show about Travis. This was also the first time Travis was able to hear songs live that are rumored to be about him, and he was thrilled.”

Since the release of her 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, in April, Swift has largely revamped her live show to include several songs from the album. Naturally, Kelce was seen grooving along as she sang two songs rumored to be about their relationship: “So High School” and “The Alchemy.” 

More recently, a source told ET this month that excitement has been brewing about the couple’s future together. 

“Taylor and Travis are doing amazing, and their loved ones see an engagement coming sooner than later,” the source said. “They make a great match and there’s no question about that.”
