Taylor Swift kicked off her Eras Tour on March 25th in Las Vegas with a surprise guest appearance from Marcus Mumford, lead singer of Mumford & Sons. Mumford joined Swift on stage to perform “Cowboy Like Me,” a track from her album “Evermore,” on which he also appears.
After the show, Mumford shared a video of the performance on his TikTok, where he thanked Swift for inviting him to perform with her. Swift also took to Instagram to express her gratitude to Mumford and the crowd for making the night memorable.
Swift also shared a story with her audience about how Mumford came to feature on her album. In 2020, while working on “Evermore,” Swift was faced with the challenge of most recording studios being closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Her collaborator, Aaron Dessner, reached out to find a space for her to record, and Mumford offered his home studio. Swift was hesitant to ask Mumford to feature on her song, but he walked in while she was recording “Cowboy Like Me” and started humming a harmony, so she eventually asked for his help.
As Swift’s Eras Tour progresses, fans are speculating about who else might make a surprise appearance on stage with her. Swift has collaborated with many artists, including Haim, Phoebe Bridgers, Maren Morris, Keith Urban, Lana Del Rey, Bon Iver, The Chicks, Kendrick Lamar, Zayn, and Ed Sheeran. Some fans are also hoping for a new song or remix with Harry Styles when Swift releases “1989 (Taylor’s Version),” which features songs inspired by their relationship.
Swift’s setlist features two surprise songs every night, creating ample opportunities for live collaborations. Fans can’t wait to see who else might join her on stage.
In conclusion, Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour has commenced with a bang, with Marcus Mumford joining her on stage for the first performance. With many more dates to come, Swift’s fans eagerly anticipate who else she may collaborate with, making each show unique and unforgettable.
