Taylor Swift said she was “overwhelmed by grief” after a fan died ahead of her “Eras Tour” concert in Brazil Friday night.
The “Anti-Hero” hitmaker, 33, revealed the tragedy and mourned her fan’s death after she performed the primary of three nights at Rio de Janeiro’s Estádio Nilton Santos.
“I can’t imagine I’m writing these words however it is with a shattered heart that I say we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show,” the 12-time Grammy winner wrote on her Instagram Story.
“I can’t even let you know how devastated I’m by this. There’s little or no information I actually have aside from the proven fact that she was so incredibly beautiful and much too young.”
Swift said she’s going to not be speaking in regards to the tragic news when she takes the stage Saturday night as she feels “overwhelmed by grief once I even attempt to discuss it.”
“I feel this loss deeply and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends,” she went on. “That is the final thing I ever thought would occur once we decided to bring this tour to Brazil.”
The concertgoer’s reason behind death is unknown.
The news comes just hours after temperatures in Rio de Janeiro reached heights of 100 degrees across the country, prompting the singer to ensure her fans had access to water during her 3-hour performance.
Swift often paused her show several times Friday night to ask security to supply struggling fans with water bottles amid an excessive heat warning.
In a social media video, Swift will be seen waving down staffers as fans chanted, “Water, water, water.”
“There’s those who need water right here, possibly 30, 35, 40 feet back,” she says in a single clip. “So whoever is answerable for giving them that, just ensure that happens. Can I get a signal that you understand where they’re?”
The “End Game” hitmaker, who’s currently on the second leg of her global sold-out tour, is ready to take to the stage again in Rio on Saturday and Sunday night.
Her next stop is São Paulo, Brazil, which marks her final stint of the 2023 tour leg before she takes a break for the vacations and resumes in Feb. 2024.
