In the 17 years since her staggering rise to fame, Taylor Swift had only ever canceled four live shows — and these were all the way back in 2011, when the star was advised by her doctors not to perform as she battled bronchitis.
The star’s determination to not let her fans down has been apparent throughout her record-breaking Eras tour this year, with Taylor performing through thunderstorms on more than one occasion.She has even adjusted the concert’s schedule to work around bad weather. During one of her Nashville dates back in May, a shelter-in-place warning was issued by officials due to the intense rain, so Taylor delayed her set until it was safe to perform and didn’t take to the stage until 10pm.
But last Friday, Taylor had no choice but to cancel her scheduled show in Buenos Aires when a storm was forecast. Locals were warned that the storm would produce lightning, 40-mph winds, and up to two inches of rain — making it unsafe for the show to go ahead.
As a result, Taylor postponed the concert until Sunday and took to her Instagram story at the time to explain the reasoning behind this change.
