Taylor Swift announced that she would be postponing her Saturday night show on her ‘Eras Tour’ in Rio de Janeiro to Monday due to extreme heat – one day after a fan died prior to her concert on Friday.
This officially confirms that she will not be attending Monday Night Football between the Chiefs and the Eagles – where her parents are set to meet the parents of boyfriend Travis Kelce for the first time.
It was previously unknown if Swift was planning to be at the game – but with this move, now she will be preoccupied with 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 to Monday.
Swift also released a statement via her personal Instagram account: ‘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 has to and always will come first.’
Temperatures at 7:45pm local time on Saturday were 98°F (36°C)- with a heat index of 108°F (42°C) as South America is well into their Summer season.
