Taylor Swift made a big announcement on Friday. In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the singer has chosen to cancel all of her live performances and appearances for the rest of the year.


It’s obviously disappointing that so many Swifties won’t get to see their idol perform live in the coming months, but the decision was made out of concern for fans’ safety and health.

“I’m so sad I won’t be able to see you guys in concert this year, but I know this is the right decision,” Taylor Swift posted on Twitter, along with an official statement explaining the cancellation.

“With many events throughout the world already cancelled, and upon direction from health officials in an effort to keep fans safe and help prevent the spread of COVID-19, sadly the decision has been made to cancel all Taylor Swift live appearances and performances this year.”

Taylor went on to share that Lover Fest shows in the United States and Brazil will be rescheduled for 2021, with dates to be announced. Tickets will be honored for the new dates. Refunds will be available for U.S. shows on May 1 through Ticketmaster.
