As sporting events and festivals are on hold in the spirit of social distancing, Taylor Swift has canceled the rest of her performances for 2020.
Citing the spread of COVID-19 and the need for avoiding large gatherings, Team Swift has pulled the plug on her concerts for the remainder of the year.
Technically, the shows are postponed until 2021, but ticketholders can request refunds in the meantime. If they choose to wait it out, no action is needed for 2020 tickets to convert to 2021 concert dates.
The news came out with a personal note from Taylor on all of her social media accounts.
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— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) April 17, 2020
Swifties are taking things in stride, expressing their support for the singer on Twitter.
Krinlyn is upset but understands why @taylorswift13 postponed her show. She worked so hard to buy her own ticket and we were making it a birthday trip too.... on the plus side: it gives me more time to make our costumes! #swiftie #loverfestwest #Krinwillbe9 🥺🥰💋🦋— goddessjodi (@goddessjodi) April 17, 2020
