Swift was thrilled to play three nights in the stadium she used to see on TV when her dad watched Eagles games every Sunday. She described the shows as magical and a dream come true.
During the final show on Mother’s Day, Swift emotionally sang “The Best Day,” a song she wrote for her mom.

Swift surprised the crowd by performing “Gold Rush” from Evermore and “Come Back… Be Here” from Red on the first night.

Swift also acknowledged the presence of celebrities in the audience, including Sabrina Carpenter, Bethenny Frankel, Gigi Hadid, Antoni Porowski, Jennifer Lawrence, and more.
Throughout the three shows, Swift performed different surprise songs, including “Forever and Always” on Night Two and “This Love” on Night Three. The final show featured “The Best Day” and “Hey Stephen” from her album Fearless. Swift’s next stop will be at Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts on May 19.
Overall, Swift had a memorable and joyful time performing in her hometown. She expressed her gratitude to her fans, reflected on the special Mother’s Day performance, and was thrilled to share the experience with the Philadelphia crowd and celebrity attendees.
