Taylor Swift announced she would postpone her Saturday night show during her ‘Eras Tour’ in Rio de Janeiro to Monday due to the extreme heat – a day after a fan died ahead of her concert on Friday.
This officially confirms that she will not be attending Monday Night Football between the Chiefs and Eagles, where her parents will meet boyfriend Travis Kelce’s parents for the first time.
It was previously unknown if Swift planned to attend the game, but with this move, she will now focus on honoring her fans’ Saturday tickets with a show.
The concert’s organizer, Time 4 Fun, announced on their social media channels that the show would be postponed until Monday.
Swift also released a statement via her personal Instagram account: “I’m writing this from my dressing room at the stadium. It has been decided to postpone tonight’s show due to the extreme temperatures in Rio.
“The safety and well-being of my fans, fellow artists and crew must and will always come first.”
Temperatures at 7:45 PM local time on Saturday were 98°F (36°C) – with a heat index of 108°F (42°C) as South America is well into the summer season.
