Taylor Swift’s Saturday show featured another trip to the vault and another surprise guest as Maren Morris took part in the first-ever performance of “You All Over Me.”
“Tonight I won’t be performing a song that I’ve never performed live before, so that’s fun,” Swift said while thanking fans for supporting the show. Taylor’s version “passion project” “What I do when I re-record these albums is I put these songs on the album that almost made the album, songs that were recorded at the time that were supposed to be on the album …When I was re-recording Fearless, I thought it would be really cool to have one of my favorite artists sing on one of the “From the Vault” songs. We’re so lucky in Chicago, so incredibly lucky, because not only did this artist say ‘yes’, but Maren Morris is actually here tonight.”

The song was among the ‘From the Vault’ recordings that Swift unearthed and updated for her Fearless (Taylor version) in 2021. While Morris was featured on the studio version of the track, the duo never performed it live until the Surprise Songs portion of Swift’s Eras Tour concert at Soldier Field in Chicago.
“We finally got to play ‘You All Over Me’ and I’m never going to shut up about it. Love you @taylorswift and love you always, Chicago,” Morris wrote after the show.
“One thing that I loved about these songs from ‘From the Vault’ is that they have never been heard, so I can experiment, play around and even include some of my favorite artists. I’m really thrilled having [Morris] sing background vocals on this one,” Swift said of the 2021 collaboration.
Morris’ cameo comes a week after Swift released Ice Spice for three consecutive nights to perform their “Karma” remix at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
Arriving at Soldier Field in Chicago on Friday for the first of three shows, Swift recognized Pride Month and said her concert was both a safe space for the community and a place to celebrate.
“I look out tonight, I see so many incredible individuals living authentically and beautifully, and this is a safe space for you,” Swift said. “It’s a party space for you. One of the things that makes me so proud is to be with you and see you interact with each other, to be so loving, so caring and so caring.
She continued: “Being with you during Pride month, singing the lyrics to ‘You need to calm down’ where there are lyrics like ‘Can you just not step on her dress? or “Shade never made anyone less gay,” and you scream those lyrics. Such solidarity. Such support for each other and such encouraging acceptance, beautiful and peace and security. And I want every place to be safe and beautiful for people in the LGBTQ+ community. »
