Taylor Swift Eras Tour: Mayor of Rio implements new measures after death


Taylor Swift currently in the middle of the second leg of “The Eras Tour”. The pop music is currently in Rio de Janeiro for its concert. The singer had to postpone her concert due to a fan who died shortly before her show on Friday. The decision was announced as thousands of fans were already at the stadium.

Brazil present in the midst of unprecedented heatwaves, which have sent out huge health alerts. The authorities had advised civilians to stay indoors and stay hydrated as the heat wave was life-threatening. The record heat index, which combines temperature with humidity, was 59.3C (138.7F) on Friday, followed by 59.7C (139.5) on Saturday.

Taking to Instagram, Taylor Swift said“The safety and well-being of my fans, fellow performers, and staff must and always will come first.”

In Taylor Swift’s statement, she claimed how she was ‘devastated’ by the fan’s death and how her heart was ‘broken’. “She was very beautiful and much too young,” she said. “I can’t believe I’m writing these words, but it’s with a broken heart that we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show,” Taylor Swift wrote.

According to the reports of the organizers, Ana Clara Benevides Machado was 23 years old and was looking for help when she started feeling sick. She was soon taken to hospital, where she died an hour later.

According to the Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo, the cause of death was listed as cardiorespiratory arrest.

Taylor Swift even said she wouldn’t be able to talk about it on stage because she was too overwhelmed with grief when she tried to talk about it. “I want to say now that I feel this loss deeply, and that my broken heart goes out to her family and friends.”

Taylor Swift said she didn’t know much else about the death.

Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes shared a message on social media saying the recent events were unacceptable. He asked the show’s producers to make various changes, such as adding more water distribution spots and increasing the presence of emergency services.

Brazil’s Minister of Justice, Flávio Dino, went to the X platform to suggest fans bring water bottles into the venues. He directed T4F Entertainment, the company that manages the Eras Tour in Brazil, to ensure that attendees have easy access to free drinking water.

This directive from the Minister came after a situation where concertgoers were prohibited from bringing their own bottles of water. Taylor Swift recently arrived in Brazil for her much-anticipated, record-setting tour, and a statue of Christ the Redeemer was lit in Rio de Janeiro to welcome her to the country.

In light of recent events, Taylor Swift expressed her condolences in an Instagram post. The pop star is scheduled to perform two more shows in Rio before heading to São Paulo. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Swift had to cancel her previously planned performances in the country.
