Taylor Swift has cancelled all her forthcoming tour dates.
Rather understandably citing the “unprecedented” situation, the shows were in support of 2019’s ‘Lover’, and were postponed last April due to the coronavirus pandemic. They included her own Lover Fest in the US, as well as a run of dates in Europe.
Explaining the news, Taylor stated: “I love coming on here to tell you good news, or to share a new project with you. It’s not my favourite thing in the world to have to tell you news I’m sad about.”
“I’m so sorry,” she continues, “but I cannot reschedule the shows that we’ve postponed. Although refunds have been available since we first postponed the Lover Fest shows, many of you hung onto your tickets and I too hung onto the idea that we could reschedule”
“This is an unprecedented pandemic that has changed everyone’s plans and no one knows what the touring landscape is going to look like in the near future. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to see you in person as soon as I wanted to. I miss you terribly and can’t wait til we can all safely be at shows together again”
Since the shows were announced, Taylor has dropped two more albums – ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’ – both of which have been wildly successful and mark a stylistic change from the aesthetic of ‘Lover’. She’s currently re-recording all six studio albums released under her former label ‘Big Machine’, and has already dropped a preview of the first one, ‘Fearless’, with her new version of ‘Love Story’.
