Additionally, the decision to move the show follows a tragic incident that deeply affected Taylor and her fan community. The Grammy winner said the fan, 23-year-old Ana Clara Benevides Machado, died after feeling ill in the audience before Friday’s concert.
“I can’t believe I’m writing these words, but it is with a broken heart that I say we lost a fan before my show tonight,” Taylor wrote. She added: “I can’t even tell you how devastated I am by this. I have very little information other than the fact that she was incredibly beautiful and too young.”

A user tweeted: “Omg I love this. I hope I’m at least half as cool as she was at her age!”
