Taylor Swift fans heartbroken as star cancels ALL concerts for rest of the year and vows to return in 2021 – The Sun

TAYLOR Swift has cancelled her 2020 tour dates to keep the safety and wellbeing of fans "the top priority" during the coronavirus outbreak.

The pop star was set to headline several European festivals across May and June 2020, and she was in the process of creating her own festival – LoverFest – for four US dates and two dates in Brazil.

In a statement shared on Friday morning, however, the 30-year-old admitted she had made the decision to cancel all live "appearances and performances this year" and called on fans to "please stay healthy and safe".

"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," she tweeted.

"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."

Her tweet also included a statement from her management team which read: "Fighting COVID-19 is an unprecedented challenge for our global community and the safety and wellbeing of fans should always be the top priority."

It went on to reveal that the "U.S. and Brazil shows will be rescheduled to take place in 2021, with dates to be announced later this year".

Tickets held for each of those shows will automatically transfer to new show dates.

Fans were understandably upset but understanding, as the world continues to battle the global pandemic.

"I'm so shocked my heart is shattered," shared one fan, as another added: "THANK YOU for giving us the confirmation. I'm devastated, but I also know that this is the right decision."

"We understand and know you’ll make it up to us Tay," wrote one upset fan, as a fourth commented: "I love you – thank you for doing the right thing.

"I know it wasn’t an easy decision to make but I’m glad you prioritized your fans’ health and encouraging us to commit to the quarantine during these strange, unique and terrible times. Love you and see you next year."

Taylor has been spending the time in lockdown helping fans and those in vulnerable positions, most recently by covering the insurance cost for ALL employees at Grimey’s Records in Nashville.

In March, she gave $3,000 each to help a freelance photographer pay her rent and an unemployed fan who said she wanted to “die” due to piled up bills.
