Taylor Swift suffered a devastating loss when her fan died of cardiac arrest before her Eras Tour show in Brazil. Swift was forced to postpone a Rio de Janeiro concert just two hours prior to the event due to the extreme heat in the city. Taylor’s Brazil tour started on a high with a grand reception, but the six-show trip isn’t going according to plan. The songstress herself was seen struggling at one of the concerts.
Taylor Swift has been filmed panting and struggling for breath during a concert. Many Swifties are concerned about her health, especially in the heatwave that has already threatened fans who were excited to see Miss Americana live.
Miss Swift shared a handwritten message on her Instagram stories after the death of a fan before the concert. “I can’t even believe I’m typing these words, but I’m saying it with a broken heart that we lost a friend earlier tonight before my concert. She wrote: “I can’t express how devastated I am.”
Coming back to Taylor’s now-viral video, it shows the ‘Lover’ crooner panting and struggling to catch her breath mid-concert during her Brazil show. It’s the exact same event that a fan tragically lost her life before. Tay also appeared to have shortened lines of one of the songs she sang, as her face was visibly red from the heat. In a second video, Tay encouraged the crowd chanting “Water Water” in order to draw the attention of security and the staff to the issue. It has already become an issue among many visitors to the venue.

“After everything—a fan died, thousands passed out, the video of Taylor gasping for breath, it being even hotter today—this is the right call. I’m still in tears for Taylor. One netizen wrote: “I know she and her staff waited as long they could to come to this decision.”

How can you be angry and blame Taylor for canceling the show today? It was the right decision. Taylor was out of air while performing, Sabrina appeared to be in need of water and oxygen and even fans were fainting. It’s everyone’s safety,” wrote a X user.
How can you be mad and angry at Taylor for canceling today’s show? It’s the right decision. It’s the best decision. A fan died yesterday. Taylor herself was out-of-breath while performing. Sabrina looked like she needed air and water. Even fans were fainting. It’s for everyone’s sake

This is the first time that I’ve seen her so tired and out-of-breath on stage. Taylor is a classy performer and her movements and expressions are perfected to a “T”, so yeah, this is freaking scary,” said another Swiftie.
This is the first and only time I have ever seen Taylor so tired and out of breathe on stage. Taylor is a true class act who has perfected all her movements and facial expressions. So yeah, this is pretty scary.

One concerned internet user wrote: “I believe we’re all agreeing that Taylor should cut her show short for everyone’s safety.” I saw her literally out-of-breath and trying to catch her breath.”
I saw her trying to catch her breath on video. I think we all agree that Taylor should cut the show for everyone’s sake.
