Fans will have to wait until next year to see Taylor Swift in concerts. The pop star has cancelled all her shows this year.
In a tweet posted by Swift on Saturday, she announced that they have decided to cancel all her live performances scheduled for this year following the quarantine orders.
She said that while it breaks her heart not seeing her fans on stage, she believes that cancellation of the shows is the right decision. Along with her tweet is an attached image of their official statement.
The world is currently going through a threatening health crisis and putting up a large public gathering is the last thing they want to do.
The duration of the pandemic is also undetermined which made them all the more push through with the decision to cancel for the rest of the year.
Canceled shows and ticket refunds
The “Blank Space” singer was supposed to be performing at the opening of the SoFi stadium in July. Had it not been for the coronavirus situation, she would have been the first woman to open an NFL stadium.
The statement released also mentioned about the rescheduling of the United States and Brazil shows to 2021. There are no dates yet but they promise to announce them later this year.
Those who have tickets will be given a new show date “without action on the part of the ticket holders.”
Moreover, they are offering a ticket refund for the U.S. Lover Fest shows. Refunds will be available beginning May 1 and will be subject to Ticketmaster terms.
They are advising ticket holders to watch out for an email containing instructions on how to request one.
Performing an emotional song
In other news, Swift recently made headlines after a heart-warming performance during the One World: Together at Home.
The 30-year old singer-songwriter performed for the first-time an emotional song which she previously said that she wouldn’t sing in public because of the meaning of the message.
Titled “Soon You’ll Get Better,” the song was written by Swift for her mother who has been battling cancer. She was first diagnosed in 2015 and then just last year they found out she has a brain tumor.
With Swift being very close to her mother, the news of cancer has been very difficult for her.
“I don’t know if I’ll ever play it live. It’s just really difficult for me,” Swift said about the song.
“It was hard to write. It’s hard to sing. It’s hard to listen to for me. But sometimes, music is like that.
The pop star is reportedly staying at home for quarantine with boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
