Taylor Swift wrapped her six-night run in Los Angeles this week, marking the end of the initial American leg of the Eras Tour.
The singer got emotional during the audience’s nearly eight-minute-standing ovation at SoFi Stadium. “What do I say to you after that?” she told the crowd. “That was so deeply abnormal and beautiful. I don’t know what to do or say.” Swift rambled a bit, admitting she couldn’t find an appropriate reaction. “I’m going to spend several decades trying to figure out words for how that just made me feel,” she said. “I’m trying to get it together. I’ve completely lost control over my brain — and that’s your fault.” She concluded, “I’m just gonna float through the rest of the show, so thanks for that.”

Swift concluded her six-show stand at Los Angeles, Calif.’s SoFi Stadium with a very special announcement. The re-recorded Taylor’s Version of her album, 1989, is officially on its way.
According to People, Swift told the audience, “The last time that I was so pleasantly surprised by some stuff that you guys did was when I announced that I was going to be re-recording. That was something that I expected to be just a me thing, just a personal thing. Since I was a teenager, I wanted to own my music.”
“The way to do it was to re-record my albums, and the way that you have embraced … that you have celebrated, that you really decided that it was your fight too, and that you were 100 percent behind me … I will never stop thanking you for that,” she continued.
“And so now, here we are on the last night of the U.S. leg of the Eras tour in the eighth month of the year on the ninth day. You might have noticed there are some new outfits in the show. There’s something that I’ve been planning for a really, really, really ridiculously, embarrassingly long time, and instead of telling you about it, I think I’ll just sort of show you,” she said, unveiling the cover art and release date for 1989 (Taylor’s Version) on the big screen.
Swift shared the news on Instagram writing, “To be perfectly honest, this is my most FAVORITE re-record I’ve ever done because the 5 From the Vault tracks are so insane,” she wrote. “I can’t believe they were ever left behind. But not for long!”
