Here's everything you missed from Olivia Rodrigo's GUTS Tour opening night

Last night, 21-year-old Gen Z queen and pop superstar Olivia Rodrigo kicked off the world tour for GUTS, her chart-topping sophomore album. And we don't know about you, but we are "Obsessed"!

If you couldn't make it to the opening concert at Acrisure Arena in Palm Springs, read on for our fave moments from the star-studded opening night (but beware, tons of spoilers ahead!).

The setlist


The tour setlist combines all the hits from GUTS *and* some stand-outs from SOUR. The opening track, "bad idea right?," sets the stage for an hour and a half of amaze music, from newer anthems like "vampire" to tried n' true faves "deja vu"—plus her OG breakout hit "drivers license."

If you want to recreate the concert at home (hello, Spotify!), here is the complete opening night setlist:

"bad idea right?"
"ballad of a homeschooled girl"
"drivers license"
"teenage dream"
"pretty isn't pretty"
"love is embarrassing"
"making the bed"
"enough for you"
"jealousy, jealousy"
"favorite crime"
"deja vu"
"the grudge"
"all-american b*tch"
"good 4 u"
"get him back!"

"drivers license" revisited

Remember the first time you heard "drivers license" way back in 2021? Olivia Rodrigo has come so far since then, and her concert made a special point of showcasing that first breakout hit *and* everything she's been doing since.

Last night, Olivia performed the song with just a piano and her soaring vocals to an arena of adoring fans, showing just how much she's grown over the last three years and how far she still has to go!

The fits

For weeks before the tour, fans have been planning their GUTS tour outfits and sharing them online.

Last night, we got our first glimpse of Olivia's tour costumes, and this sparkly silver sequin top-and-skirt combo makes her glow under the lights like the shiny queen she is.

 The moon!

Last night, there was an almost full moon outside the arena. But there was a moon inside, too, with Olivia sitting above the crowd on a gorgeous crescent moon while she sang "logical" and "enough for you."

The childhood throwback


Last night's rendition of "drivers license" wasn't the only emotional throwback! During Olivia's performance of "teenage dream," the big screen played a montage of her childhood videos, showing little Olivia dancing ballet and singing into a microphone while grown-up Olivia was teary-eyed.

Later, the loudspeakers played a voiceover of 5-year-old Olivia talking about her first performance, saying, "I dedicate this song to my family and friends." Coming in the wake of grown-up Olivia's second mega-successful album, the throwback videos were a sweet and wholesome reminder to Olivia's fans of how much she's accomplished in a relatively short time.
