During her “Eras Tour” this weekend, Taylor Swift went headfirst into the crowd, causing a viral video. The highly-anticipated Swift tour kicked off at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Friday. To illustrate her switch between her different “eras,” each of which represented an album, she performed some show-stopping transitions throughout her performance. On Twitter, footage from the second night of her tour showed the singer walking towards the edge of the stage as swimming pool noises played in the background. She approached the main catwalk section after she finished singing “Tim McGraw” from her debut album.

From the crowd, she disappeared after she jumped off headfirst. To illustrate this smooth transition into a new “era”, the floor continued to light up and display a clip of the “Anti-Hero” singer swimming. As the stage visuals depicted an ocean wave, concert attendees gasped and applauded. Fans have expressed their shock at Swift diving into the stage and applauded her transition on social media. I have never seen anything as crazy as the dive. It caught me off guard LMAO, one fan tweeted. One fan shared a video of the concert on TikTok and said: @taylorswift’s #theerastour night one was the most impressive.
How Taylor dives into the stage.
1. A part of the stage opens up to reveal a section underneath the stage.
2. Taylor gets prepared to jump, as you can see, there is a red light which signals for her not to jump yet.
3. Taylor jumps when the light turns green. pic.twitter.com/B8LOZzPwkW

During Her Eras tour, Taylor Swift Dives Headfirst Into The Stage Leaving The Crowd Shock And Thrilled
Fans were amazed when Taylor Swift dived headfirst into the stage and swam during her first Eras tour performance. Over the weekend, she launched her long-awaited Eras tour in Arizona. Fans weren’t just talking about Taylor Swift’s 44-song set, as the star certainly brought theatrics to the performance. While performing, Anti-Hero, 33, dives head-first off the stage and exits through a gap in the floor. In a stunning display of an extravagant disappearance, Taylor left the audience in awe, and many shared their shock via social media. As fans tweeted about the moment, one even joked that the multi-award-winning star was now aiming for an Olympic medal. The first two performances of Taylor’s tour were held in Arizona on Friday and Saturday, with many audience members capturing the dive on camera. The country-turned-pop star was seen walking towards a rectangular gap in the stage while wearing a flowing dress. Afterwards, she gets into a proper diving form before jumping through the stage in a structured manner. During the dive, a splashing sound effect is heard over the stadium and a graphic of her swimming underneath the stage is projected on the ground before she returns to the stage to sing songs from her Midnights album.
In response to the unexpected moment, one shocked Twitter user wrote: ‘EXCUSE ME TAYLOR SWIFT JUST DIVED HEAD FIRST INTO THE STAGE WHAT’. An optimist joked: ‘Aside from being a 12-time Grammy winner, a doctor, a director, and one of the most acclaimed musicians of our time, Taylor Swift is now trying to win the swimming Olympics. Another shared that the dive was the most interesting thing he had ever seen, ‘I was so caught off guard LMAO,’ he said. Taylor has yet to announce the international dates for her much-anticipated tour, but she will wrap up the US leg on August 9 in Los Angeles. With over three hours of singing each night, she’s certainly making it worth fans’ while too as she performs 44 songs each night. It’s no surprise Taylor’s set list is so long since she’s been busy since she last performed in 2018, shortly after releasing Reputation. She has since released Lover, Folklore, and Evermore, as well as re-recording Red and Fearless. Glendale, Arizona, was glad to be picked as the area to start off Taylor’s tour – with the Mayor even, renaming it ‘Swift City’ for the weekend in her honour.

If you look closer in the videos, when she jumps there are some sort of sparkles/glitter flying near her shoes. I am confused where does that come from?
