Taylor Swift has postponed an Eras Tour concert in Rio de Janeiro following the tragic death of a 23-year-old fan during her Friday night performance, as conveyed in a statement shared on the singer’s Instagram.
“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 singer said in a handwritten note posted on her Instagram account.”The safety and well-being of my fans, fellow performers, and crew has to and always will come first.”
“There’s very little information I have other than the fact that she was so incredibly beautiful and far too young,” the singer wrote of the young woman.
The reason for the death of Ana Clara Benevides Machado, the young woman who received medical attention at Nilton Santos Olympic Stadium during Friday’s concert, remains undisclosed. A criminal investigation has been initiated by Rio’s public prosecutor’s office, with Benevides’ body undergoing examination.Attendees raised concerns about not being permitted to bring water into the stadium despite the oppressive weather. With temperatures persisting on Saturday and two more shows scheduled, federal authorities declared that complimentary water would be provided at concerts and similar large gatherings.
