Taylor, who marked her 100th performance of the tour this week, also thrilled fans with another edition of Surprise Songs, where she picks songs to sing acoustically. 

She performed a mash up of Carolina and No Body No Crime and also a mashup of The Manuscript and Red. 

Taylor will continue The Eras Tour in Cardiff on Tuesday before performing in London from June 21 to June 23. 

It comes after English actor Joe, 33, finally opened up about their break up, 14 months after it was revealed. 

He told The Sunday Times Style. ‘As everyone knows, we together — both of us, mutually — decided to keep the more private details of our relationship private. 

‘It was never something to commodify and I see no reason to change that now.’ 

Joe continued: ‘And, look, this is also a little over a year ago now and I feel fortunate to be in a really great place in my life, professionally and personally. I feel really good.’ 

When asked if he listened to Taylor’s latest album, The Tortured Poets Department, Joe said: ‘In thinking on what I was going to say, I would think and hope that anyone and everyone can empathize.

‘This isn’t a direct answer to your question, but just thinking about what I want to talk about.’ 

Joe finished: ‘I would hope that anyone and everyone can empathize and understand the difficulties that come with the end of a long, loving, fully committed relationship of over six and a half years.’

Taylor is still yet to speak publicly about the break-up, but has since moved on with NFL star Travis Kelce.

Her only comments have come through song, with several tracks on The Tortured Poets Department understood to be about Joe.

In one particular track, LOML, Taylor heartbreakingly sings: ‘I wish we could recall how we almost had it all…’

On Friday, Taylor’s Surprise Song was This Is What You Came For, performed by Rihanna but co-written by her and her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris. 

Taylor prefaced the song: ‘Every single time I have an acoustic set, I’m always trying to think of things you might want to hear — maybe things that might be a little bit unexpected. 

‘Let’s see how we did tonight.’

She performed the track as a mashup with her song ‘Gold Rush’ from her 2020 album Evermore.
