Taylor Swift postponed an Eras Tour concert in Rio de Janeiro Saturday after a 23-year-old fan died during her Friday night show, according to a message posted on the singers Instagram.

Im writing this from my dressing room in the stadium. The decision has been made to postpone tonights show due to the extreme temperatures in Rio, the singer said in a handwritten note posted on her Instagram account. The safety and well being of my fans, fellow performers, and crew has to and always will come first.

The cause of death for Ana Clara Benevides Machado, the young woman who sought medical attention at Nilton Santos Olympic Stadium during Fridays show, has not yet been announced. The office of Rios public prosecutor opened a criminal investigation and said Benevides body was being examined.

Benevides death shook many people in Brazil. She had taken her first flight ever to travel from the countrys centre-west region to Rio to see her favourite musician. She also created a WhatsApp group to keep her family updated, sending photos and videos every step of the way, family members told online news site G1.

Fans and politicians reacted to her death with outrage, speculating it was linked to extreme heat.

Concertgoers complained they were not allowed to take water into the stadium despite the stifling weather. As temperatures continued to rise Saturday and with two more shows to go at the time, federal authorities announced that free water would now be made available at concerts and other large events.

One of Benevides friends, who also went to the concert, told local outlets they had both been given water while waiting to enter the stadium.

In a previous statement shared on her social media Saturday morning, Swift said she had a shattered heart.

Theres very little information I have other than the fact that she was so incredibly beautiful and far too young, the singer wrote of the young woman.

The shows organizer, Time4Fun, said on Instagram that paramedics attended to Benevides after she reported feeling unwell. She was taken to a first-aid center and then to a hospital, where she died an hour later, the statement from the Brazilian live entertainment company said.

Fans who attended the Friday show said they were not allowed to bring water bottles into the stadium even though Rio and most of Brazil have had record-breaking temperatures this week amid a dangerous and lasting heat wave. The daytime high in Rio on Friday was 39.1 degrees Celsius (102.4 degrees Fahrenheit), but it felt much hotter.

Apparent temperature -- a combination of temperature and humidity -- hit 59 C (138 F) Friday morning in Rio, the highest index ever recorded there.

Elizabeth Morin, 26, who recently moved to Rio from Los Angeles, described sauna-like conditions inside the stadium.

It was extremely hot. My hair got so wet from sweat as soon as I came in, she said. There was a point at which I had to check my breathing to make sure I wasnt going to pass out.

Morin said she drank plenty of water but saw a good amount of people looking distressed and others yelling for water. She said she was able to get water from the sidelines of the area she was standing in, but that water was a lot harder to access from other parts of the stadium, especially if you were concerned about losing your specific position.

During the show, Swift paused her performance and asked from the stage for water to be brought to a group of people who had successfully caught the singers attention, according to Morin.

They were holding up their phones saying `We need water, she recalled.

Two other concertgoers interviewed by The Associated Press said they witnessed people feeling unwell from the heat during the show.

On her way to Rio, Benevides sent a video to family members that was broadcast by TV channel Globo News, telling them: Mom, look at the plane, its moving. Mom, Im on the plane. My God in heaven! Im happy!

Then before the concert, she posted a video of herself on Instagram wearing a Taylor Swift T-shirt and friendship bracelets, seeking shade under an umbrella while waiting in line to enter the stadium.

Like her, thousands of fans waited hours in the sun before being allowed inside.

She told her followers while fanning her face that shed arrived at 11 a.m. -- the show began around 7:30 p.m. -- and was still in the mess.

Benevides friend, Daniele Menin, who attended the concert with her, told online news site G1 that her friend passed out at the beginning of the concert, as Swift performed her second song, Cruel Summer.

We always said that when (Taylor Swift) came to Brazil we would find a way to go. The ticket was very expensive, but we still found a way, Menin told G1.

Justice Minister Flavio Dino said on X, formerly known as Twitter, that going forward in Brazil, water bottles for personal use, in suitable material, will be allowed at concerts and festivals and that show producers must provide free and easily accessible drinking water.

Rio de Janeiro Mayor Eduardo Paes wrote on X that the loss of a young womans life ... is unacceptable and demanded more brigades and ambulances at future shows.

Still, the concert was postponed.

We are on the train. And everyone is so disappointed, said Hely Olivares, a 41 year-old Venezuelan who had travelled from Panama to see the artist.

Before postponing the concert, Swift wrote on Instagram that she would not address the death from stage because I feel overwhelmed by grief when I even try to talk about it.

I want to say now I feel this loss deeply and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends, she said.



Swifties, mark your calendars.

Taylor Swift has added dates to the Canadian leg of her blockbuster Eras Tour – scheduling three shows in Vancouver.

The pop star will be playing BC Place on Dec. 6, 7, and 8, 2024.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of bringing Taylor Swift, The Eras Tour, to Vancouver, giving fans the experience of a lifetime,” said Terrie Tweddle, spokesperson for Rogers Communications Inc., which is presenting the tour.

For those who want the chance to score tickets , registration for an online sale opened Thursday at 8 a.m. and runs through Saturday at 5 p.m.

On Wednesday, Nov. 8, registered fans will get an email telling them if theyve been added to a list of people who get first dibs at tickets or placed on a waitlist. The actual sale will start the following day, open only to those whose access has been confirmed.

The only other Canadian city Swift is set to visit is Toronto, where she will play six shows in November of next year. 

Those shows were added earlier this year after an outcry over the fact that no Canadian dates had been scheduled. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was among those who posted to social media asking the star to reconsider. 

B.C. Premier David Eby, who made a plea of his own in an Instagram story last month, weighed in shortly after Swifts announcement.

Welcome to Vancouver, we’ve been waiting for you! he wrote in Twitter.

I’m convinced it was my invitation that convinced Taylor Swift to come to BC. Not the sold-out venues worldwide, not that her biggest & best fans are in our province, not that she already planned to… Nope, can’t be any of those!

The provinces tourism minister, Lana Popham, issued her own invite back in July, and reacted to Thursdays news on social media – first by tweeting a series of exclamation marks, later following it up with, This is big!

BC Place has a capacity of 54,500, meaning the all-but-inevitably sold-out shows would bring upwards of 150,000 fans to the downtown core over three days. On average, Eras Tour fans are spending U.S. $1,300 – equivalent to more than $1,700 in Canada – on tickets, merchandise, alcohol, food, parking and hotels.

And if Swifts previous stop in the Pacific Northwest is anything to go by, the impact could be literally seismic. Over the summer, a show in Seattle generated activity equivalent to a 2.3 magnitude earthquake.



Is Chris Stapleton coming to your city in 2024?

Stapleton fans got the answer to that question Thursday morning when the singer revealed 2024 dates on his “All-American Road Show” tour, which will launch in San Diego, California, in March.

Tickets for many 2024 dates will go on sale Friday, Nov. 3 at 10 a.m. local time.

Support acts on Stapleton’s 2024 include Charley Crockett, Nikki Lane, Turnpike Troubadours, Elle King, The War and Treaty, Allen Stone, Lainey Wilson, Marcus King, Willie Nelson, Marty Stuart, Willie Nelson and Grace Potter.

But before he hits the road in 2024, Stapleton will release his highly anticipated new album, “Higher,” on Nov. 10. Stapleton co-produced “Higher” will his wife Morgane Stapleton and longtime collaborator Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A. The 14-song album includes his recent single release “White Horse.”

Stapleton cowrote “White Horse” Dan Wilson. Lyrics include: If you want a cowboy on a white horse| Riding off into the sunset| If thats the kind of love you wanna wait for| Hold on tight, girl, I aint there yet.

Shania Twain announced Tuesday she plans to roll the dice again in Las Vegas next year.

Twain, who is spending much of the year on her international Queen of Me Tour, will head back to Las Vegas for her third residency in May of 2024. 

Shania Twain: COME ON OVER – The Las Vegas Residency – All The Hits! will open at Bakkt Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Friday, May 10, 2024. Tickets will go on sale 10 a.m. PT Monday, Aug. 21, ticketmaster.com/shaniavegas.

“I am excited to be returning to Vegas for my third residency COME ON OVER, Twain said. Performing in Vegas is a huge honor, and I love this theatre. The audience can expect ALL THE HITS with a few fan favorites from the new album in there, too. I am in a celebratory mood, and there is nowhere better to party than VEGAS, so I hope you all join me!”

The Canadian told People she planned to play around in the fashion more on her third residency because she had really discovered the joy of creating my styling myself. 

“Ive always collaborated, but this is a whole other level, she said. Im going to be doing more of that at the Come on Over residency.

She said she didnt want to give anything away but that shell bring elements from her previous Las Vegas residencies as well as her current tour to the more intimate stage. 

“Im always learning, but I am enjoying the maturity of having the confidence in my decision-making,” she said. “I’m enjoying the confidence that experience has given me now, and it just gives me a lot of room to play, and it gives me a lot of room to be spontaneous. Ive got more confidence in being spontaneous and trying new things, as well.”

Twain doesnt know where she finds her energy now, she reported to People, but theorizes it could be a combination of confidence and gratitude.

I’ve got just more self-confidence, she said. Self-doubt, I just dont have time for that. I would rather be wrong and make a mistake but still be moving forward than to be stuck or fenced in by fear or self-doubt. Just no time for that, no room for that. And the things that have taught me that have been the ailments along the way.”

Twain added, “I do work too hard sometimes, but if its something that Im loving, good luck trying to slow me down.”

The 24 performances going on sale are:

May 2024: 10, 11, 15, 17, 18, 23, 25, 26
