Taylor Swift is currently on the UK leg of her Eras Tour and performed the first of three shows (21-23 June) last night at London's Wembley Stadium.

The pop star will also return to the capital in August, with five extra dates at Wembley on 15-19 August.

The show is over three hours long and the setlist includes songs from nearly every era of her career, from Fearless,Speak Now, Red, 1989, Reputation, Lover, Folklore, Evermore, Midnights and The Tortured Poets Department.

But there's a section of the concert where Swift plays a mashup of surprise songs on her guitar and piano and Swifties often theorise and predict what songs Swift will perform.

Many fans have also taken to social media to share their reaction to the surprise songs - whether they're lucky enough that Swift sings their favourite songs as a surprise at their concert or if they discover Swift sang their favourite song at a show they weren't in attendance at.

Here is a rundown of all the surprise songs Swift has sung from her extensive catalogue so far on the UK leg of The Eras Tour:

Edinburgh, Scotland

  • June 7 – Mashup of “Would’ve Could’ve Should’ve/I Know Places” and mashup of “‘Tis the Damn Season/Daylight”

What surprise songs are Swifties predicting for the London shows?

With the London shows coming up, speculation is rife as to which surprise songs Swift will choose.

Of course, the 34-year-old has two songs specifically about London, there's 'London Boy' from her 2019 album Lover, and from her recent album The Tortured Poets Department, there's track five 'So Long, London.'

Meanwhile, London also gets a mention in the tracks 'Come Back, Be Here' from her 2012 album Red along with 'Message In A Bottle' From The Vault track, and there have been rumours that her song 'The Black Dog' from The Tortured Poets Department is about a pub located in South West London.

Here is what Swift performed on the first night of her London show:

  • June 21 – Mashup of "Hits Different/Death By a Thousand Cuts" and a mashup of ‘The Black Dog/Come Back Be Here."
