Taylor Swift has canceled her concerts for 2020, including her LoverFest East and West shows that had been slated for Inglewood, California on July 25-26 and Foxborough, Massachusetts on July 31-Aug. 1, as well as two July 18-19 shows in Brazil.
According to a statement she posted to social media on April 17, tickets for her United States and Brazil shows will be honored for new shows dates which will take place some time next year. Refunds will also be available beginning May 1, according to Ticketmaster standards.
Swift’s statement says: “Fighting COVID-19 is an unprecedented challenge for our global community and the safety and wellbeing of fans should always be the top priority. Health organizations and governments around the world have strongly discouraged large public gatherings for an undetermined period of time. 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. The U.S. and Brazil shows will be rescheduled to take place in 2021, with dates to be announced later this year.”
Though there will be no live events or festival shows for Swift in the near future, she has signed on to take part in the upcoming One World: Together At Home livestream event set to air on JOOX Music on April 19. Led by Lady Gaga, the concert will also include performances from Keith Urban, Alicia Keys, Celine Dion, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Kacey Musgraves, Lady Antebellum, Maren Morris and more.
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. Please, please stay healthy and safe. I’ll see you on stage as soon as I can but right now what’s important is committing to this quarantine, for the sake of all of us. pic.twitter.com/qeiMk2Tgon
