Taylor Swift kicked off The RED Tour in Omaha, Nebraska, Wednesday with the first show of a two-night stand at the city’s CenturyLink Center.

Taylor opened the show with “State of Grace” and followed it up with “Holy Ground” and “Red.”  In all, 13 of the 17 songs Taylor performed in her set were from the Red album.  Ed Sheeran opened for Taylor.

Taylor performed “I Almost Do” with just her guitar.  The Omaha World-Herald reports she told the 13-thousand-strong crowd the tune was about the temptation people feel to call an ex who isn’t good for them.  “This is a song I wrote instead of making that call,” Taylor said, quickly adding, “But I almost did.”

The RED Tour is Taylor’s third major outing following her Fearless and Speak Now treks.  Taylor will perform a total of 66 shows in 47 cities in North America over the next six months.

Here’s Taylor’s set list from her Wednesday night concert at the CenturyLink Center, according to Alterthepress.com:
