During the 33-year-old's latest tour stint in Tampa, Florida, she announced a change to her setlist rules that will certainly delight Swifties attending later shows.

On April 14, Swift sang The Great War and You're On Your Own, Kid - two fan-favorite tracks from Midnights - as the evening's surprise songs.

Based on the Anti-Hero singer's previously outlined rules for surprise songs, this would mean that they would not be performed again on tour.

However, Swift provided a revision to the original restrictions, giving fans some hope with tickets to the remaining dates!

"I'm adding a little caveat that if it's on Midnights, I can do it however many times I want," she said before performing You're On You're Own, Kid.

The news is a welcome surprise for many Swifties, but the performances may not be as easy to predict as fans once believed.

Can Taylor Swift fans predict their surprise songs at The Eras Tour?

Based on the first few shows of The Eras Tour, many fans believed Swift was creating a pattern of one older song and one newer song (often with similar themes) within each surprise song pairing.

The Lavender Haze artist appears to have left that pattern to the wayside, having now performed two surprise songs from the same album in one night.

Whether it's picking out songs to honor special guests or teasing an upcoming release, Swift also seems to have a particular reason behind each selection, adding more for fans to consider when guessing the surprise pairings.
