This serves as an update to our previous post concerning Taylor Swift’s concert in Rio, Brazil. The renowned singer and songwriter has decided to postpone her second Eras Tour show following the unfortunate incident involving a fan who suffered cardiac arrest and passed away during her Friday concert at the Stadium.
Taylor Swift conveyed the announcement of the show’s postponement on Saturday through her official Instagram account, citing the extreme temperatures in Rio, Brazil, as the reason. She reiterated her commitment to prioritizing the safety and well-being of her fans, crew members, and fellow performers.
In her Instagram story, Swift wrote, “I’m writing this from my dressing room in the stadium. The decision has been made to postpone tonight’s show due to the extreme temperatures in Rio. The safety and well-being of my fans, fellow performers and crew always has to come first.”
This decision is a prudent move by Swift and her team, considering the high temperatures in the city. With the unfortunate incident on Friday, the conditions posed potential risks, and postponing the show demonstrates a commitment to avoiding further complications.
The Grammy winner kicked off her Eras Tour at the ESTÁDIO NILTON SANTOS in Rio, Brazil, on Friday, November 17, 2023, with plans to continue the performances on Saturday and Sunday. However, the Saturday show was canceled due to the prevailing extreme temperatures.
As of now, there is no information available regarding rescheduled dates. We will keep our readers informed once any new details are disclosed.
Before the Friday performance in Rio De Janeiro, Swift expressed her grief on social media after a fan, identified as Ana Clara Benevides Machado, passed away before the show began. The 23-year-old lady’s cause of death was not immediately disclosed.
Ana Clara’s friend, Daniele Menin, who attended the concert with her, revealed that she passed out during Taylor Swift’s second song, “Cruel Summer.” Despite the high ticket cost, Daniele emphasized their determination to attend Taylor Swift’s concert in Brazil.
Concert attendees highlighted the challenge of not being allowed to bring water bottles into the stadium, despite the exceptionally high temperatures in Rio and across Brazil this week due to a dangerous and prolonged heat wave. The daytime high in Rio on Friday reached 39.1 degrees Celsius (102.4 degrees Fahrenheit), with conditions feeling even hotter.
