One superfan tells Parade about the best moments from Taylor Swift's new tour.

One of the reasons Taylor Swift is such a popular artist is not only due to her immense talent, but also her relatability—millions of strangers feel like she's someone they could get along with so easily. Meanwhile, for Sofia Jain, 26, that's a reality that she's experienced firsthand and now knows all too well (in the best way).

From being followed by Swift on Tumblr back when Jain was 17 years old in 2014, to attending a Secret Session ahead of reputation's release, being invited to reputation's release party, getting tagged in a photo posted to Swift's Instagram and experiencing PLENTY of concerts and interactions in between, Jain has been blown away by all of the generosity and genuine kindness that Swift has consistently shown over the years.

Jain flew out to attend the first night of the Eras Tour, and while she had been to 20 of Taylor's concerts previously (along with a handful of other performances as well), she had no idea what was in store for this brand new tour.

"Every moment of it was a surprise, from the setlist, outfits Taylor wore, jokes she made and more!" Jain tells Parade.

3. Throwing It Back

"One of the coolest elements was that she incorporated a little bit from the tours of each album that she went on tour with (like the 1989 golf club, 'Shake It Off' outfit, the way she performed 'Enchanted' on Speak Now, [wearing] sparkly oxfords for Red, etc.)—she also made each one a little bit new as well," Jain says. 

4. Crowd Favorite

According to Jain, "When she sang 'Cruel Summer,' the whole stadium erupted."

5. Heightened Emotions

"Her talking about how much she missed us so many times made us almost cry (and some of us did!)," Jain admits.

12. The Set List Length

While Swifties have been wondering for months just how many of their favorite songs they might have a chance to hear, unsure of just how many hits will be able to be performed in one show, Jain says there was actually a shocking amount of songs on the set list. The final number? 44!

13. Closing the Show

Fans have been curious about the opening and closing numbers, so one of the biggest surprises of the night was the song selected to end the show. "'Karma' as a closer was such incredible energy—the whole stadium was singing so loud and dancing and just so happy," Jain shares.
