Taylor Swift Delays 2nd Rio Show After Fan’s PassingNovember 18, 2023
Taylor Swift postponed the second night of her Eras Tour in Brazil due to extreme temperatures in Rio. This decision came after the death of a 23-year-old fan who fell ill during her show on Friday and later died at a nearby hospital. The rescheduled show is now set to take place on Monday, Nov. 20. Swift is scheduled to perform in Rio again on Sunday and then head to São Paulo for three more shows next weekend. Rio de Janeiro is currently experiencing record-breaking high temperatures, and Minister of Justice Flávio Dino announced that water bottles for personal use would be allowed at concerts and that free drinking water must be provided at shows with high-heat exposure.
