It’s a cruel fall for Taylor Swift fans in Argentina … at least for the day. The pop superstar announced on Friday (Nov. 10), just hours ahead of her second show at the Estadio River Plate in Buenos Aires, Argentina, that the concert would be postponed.
“I love a rain show but I’m never going to endanger my fans or my fellow performers and crew,” Swift began her written message in an Instagram Stories post. “We’ve rescheduled tonight’s Buenos Aires show for Sunday due to the weather being so truly chaotic it would be unsafe to try and put on this concert. Good news is I get to stay in Argentina later!”
Though she had to delay her show, it wasn’t a bad day for the 12-time Grammy winner. Earlier on Friday, The Recording Academy announced the nominees for the 2024 awards, with Swift receiving six nods. Among the awards she’ll be competing for are record and song of the year (“Anti-Hero”), as well as album of the year (Midnights). She has not yet shared a reaction about her latest nominations. Besides the Grammys, Swift is also the lead finalist with 20 nods for the 2023 Billboard Music Awards, which will stream Nov. 19 on BBMAs.watch and via Billboard and the BBMAs’ social channels.
Swift kicked off the international leg of her Eras Tour a day earlier, on Thursday (Nov. 9). During the show — also held at the Estadio River Plate — she delivered her nightly two surprise songs. For her first show in Buenos Aires, the “Maroon” singer offered up “The Very First Night,” followed by “Labyrinth.”
It was the second song that had fans giddy. Video captured by concertgoers show the pop star smiling as she sang the chorus, which goes, “Uh oh, I’m falling in love/ Oh no, I’m falling in love again.” Swifties flooded X (formerly known as Twitter) with their reactions, convinced that the star was singing about new love interest Travis Kelce.
“MY GIRL IS SMITTEN,” tweeted one fan. “WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TRAVIS KELCE.”
“travis kelce tysm for your service,” added another Swiftie, who was one of many who credited the Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end for Swift’s performance of the Midnights deep cut.
Though fans may think Swift was singing about the NFL star, Kelce wasn’t in Buenos Aires to catch the performance. Instead, the football player was back in Kansas City, attending Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ charity gala. But according to NBC News, Kelce is planning to see Swift perform in South America.
