Taylor Swift hit the stage in Omaha, Nebraska on Wednesday for the opening night of her highly anticipated Red Tour, and from the show's setlist, it looks like she's all about her new music this time around.
While Taylor, and most other artists, usually find ways to infuse all (or most) of their old hits into the set list, this time she's sticking to mostly songs from the Red album, playing all but three and only adding four from her previous three albums. Noticeably missing from the lineup are hits that helped Taylor make a name for herself, like "Our Song" and "Teardrops on My Guitar," as well as chart climbers like "Mine" and "Ours."

According to a fan-uploaded document, Taylor's set list is only 17 songs, as follows:
1.) “State of Grace”
2.) “Holy Ground”
4.) “You Belong With Me”
5.) “The Lucky One”
7.) “Stay Stay Stay / Ho Hey” (The Lumineers Cover)
9.) “I Almost Do”
10.) “Everything Has Changed” (with Ed Sheeran)
11.) “Begin Again”
12.) “Sparks Fly”
13.) “I Knew You Were Trouble”
14.) “All Too Well”
15.) “Love Story”
17.) “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”
So, she'll grace us with "You Belong With Me" and "Love Story" from her sophomore album Fearless, and "Mean" and "Sparks Fly" from Speak Now, but we'll get nada from her debut album Taylor Swift. Come on, just one lesser-known throwback song would've been nice, and Taylor could've easily expanded her set list to 21 or 22 songs. Or even added in a medley of old tunes? We're chock-full of ideas here!
Taylor is known to stick to a very strict set every night and rarely changes much from performance to performance, but maybe with a six month long tour this time around she'll make some tweaks. And hey, if you don't think the set list is all that great, just check out the music video for "22" again, because that is pretty awesome.
