Sam Heughan Compares Taylor Swift’s Evermore Set to Outlander

Sam Heughan, the star of the popular STARZ series “Outlander,” recently drew an intriguing comparison between Taylor Swift’s “Evermore” set and the world of “Outlander.” Heughan and his fellow cast members attended Swift’s Eras Tour concert on June 8, and the experience left a lasting impression on them.

Heughan, 44, shared his excitement on Instagram, posting, “Wonderful evening back @murrayfield_stadium with the @outlander_starz family!! Thanks @louisamcculloch3 @nightmaril for [organizing] and to @taylorswift for an incredible evening’s entertainment! #OutlanderSwifties.” The actor, who has previously expressed his admiration for the 34-year-old Grammy winner, uploaded several videos from the concert, capturing the cast’s enjoyment from their VIP tent.

The “Outlander” crew, including Catriona Balfe, John Hunter Bell, Sophie Skelton, Lauren Lyle, and others, danced the night away during Swift’s second show in Edinburgh. Heughan, dressed in a black jacket and adorned with DIY friendship bracelets inspired by Swift’s songs, seemed to be having the time of his life.

As the “Outlander” cast watched the concert, Heughan made a poignant connection between Swift’s performance and the show’s characters, Jamie and Clare. He shared footage of Swift performing “Willow” from her “Evermore” set, where she and her backup dancers wore dark green cloaks and held glowing golden orbs. Heughan cleverly replaced the live performance sound with the “Outlander” theme song, creating a unique blend of the two worlds.

The “Outlander” cast was also treated to special surprise mash-ups during Swift’s acoustic set. She performed “The Bolter” combined with “Getaway Car” on her guitar, followed by a piano rendition of “All the Girls You Loved Before” and “Crazier.” This marked the first time Swift played “Crazier” live during an Eras concert, a song she originally recorded for “Hannah Montana: The Movie.”

Heughan had teased the cast’s attendance at the concert earlier in the week with an Instagram video from the “Outlander” set. In the video, he humorously suggested that Swift would fall for him when she saw him in the audience, playfully referencing her boyfriend, Travis Kelce.

Kelce, 34, has been dating Swift since the summer of 2023. Their romance began after Kelce attended his first Eras concert in Kansas City last July, where he brought a handmade friendship bracelet for the pop star. Although he didn’t get to meet Swift after the show, their relationship blossomed soon after, as Swift revealed in her 2023 TIME Person of the Year profile.

Swift and Kelce took their relationship public in September 2023 when she attended her first Kansas City Chiefs football game to support her boyfriend. Kelce has since attended multiple international Eras shows in between his professional commitments.

The “Outlander” cast’s experience at the Eras Tour concert was a memorable one, thanks to the efforts of organizers Louisa McCulloch and Maril Davis. Sophie Skelton, a self-proclaimed Swiftie, expressed her gratitude for the efforts made to ensure everyone could attend the concert, hinting that it was a last-minute arrangement.

The concert also provided an opportunity for the “Outlander” cast to bond and enjoy a different kind of entertainment. Heughan’s comparison of Swift’s “Evermore” set to the world of “Outlander” added a unique twist to the evening, blending the two fandoms in a creative and memorable way.

As Swift continues her Eras Tour, her performances continue to captivate audiences worldwide. The concert film, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” has also been a massive success, preselling over $100 million in tickets before its premiere. The film, directed by Sam Wrench, captures the essence of Swift’s live performances, although some necessary changes were made to fit the three-hour-and-15-minute concert into a two-hour-and-45-minute movie.

Despite these changes, the film remains a testament to Swift’s incredible talent and the connection she shares with her fans. The “Outlander” cast’s experience at the concert is just one example of how Swift’s music continues to bring people together and create unforgettable memories.
