Taylor Swift is a force to be reckoned with! She has been unstoppable since the release of her tenth studio album, ‘Midnights’. However, her stardom has reached its zenith with the globe-trotting ‘Eras Tour’. After finishing the US and Mexico leg of the tour, which has led the tour to become the highest-grossing tour of all time, Swift kicked off the Latin American leg of the tour.
Taylor Swift started the ‘Eras Tour’ in Argentina, where she played a three-night concert, giving a great head start to the Latin American part of the tour. She was also joined by her beau, Travis Kelce, and father, Scott Swift. After signing off from Argentina, Taylor was scheduled to perform at the Estsádio Olímpico Nilton Santos Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. However, the ‘1989’ singer has now postponed the Brazil concerts due to excruciating temperatures and the recent death of a fan.
