During the first show of Taylor Swift's highly anticipated concert series at SoFi Stadium, the Grammy winner shared a poignant moment with Bianka Bryant, daughter of Kobe and Vanessa Bryant.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (KABC) -- Did Taylor Swift play your favorite song at her much-anticipated The Eras Tour? And what were her surprise songs each night? Here's where you can find out.

Swift officially kicked off the L.A.-leg of her tour Thursday at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.

If you couldn't snag tickets, lucky for you, we'll be tracking down all the songs she played at each show -- including the surprise songs.

Swift's setlist for each show has been very consistent, with performances of specific songs from each album. This is likely due to her heavy stage production, which relies on specific cues for lighting, dancers, special guests, etc.

But during each show, there is a special section for two surprise songs.

Night 1, Aug. 3 surprise songs:

  • I Can See You (live debut; on guitar): A new track from her "Speak Now (Taylor's Version)" album from the vault. Before the performance, she told the crowd that it would be her first time ever performing the song live.
  • Maroon (on piano; second time this tour): A clear fan-favorite from her latest new album, "Midnights." The crowd went wild during her performance, cheering and singing along word-for-word.
