The Coronavirus Canceled Every Taylor Swift Concert This Year
It's hard to shake this one off. 💔
The queen of pop had a dramatic annoucement for fans today. Taylor Swift canceled all her concerts in California for this year. TBH, it's hard to shake this one off.
"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. 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," she wrote.
The 30-year-old star was set to perform Lover Fest West in the Golden State this summer.
CBS Los Angeles reports she would have been the first big music act to ever open up the SoFi Stadium in LA County's Inglewood on July 25-26.
In her post, Swift also included a detailed note, acknowledging that COVID-19 was the reason she canceled her shows.
Fighting it "is an unprecedented challenge for our global community and the safety and wellbeing of fans should always be the top priority," she said.
Swift went on to say "Health organizations and governments around the world have strongly discouraged large public gatherings for an undetermined amount of time... Sadly the decision has been made to cancel all Taylor Swift live appearances and performances this year."
Ticket purchases for her show will be transfered to her new show dates. Refunds will also be available starting May 1 for Lover Fest shows across the U.S.
There's a reason for Swift's decision.
California's Governor Gavin Newsom recently announced that the stay at home orders will be kept in place until May 15.
Newsom stated he did not know when the stay at home orders would be lifted.
CBS Los Angeles reports that sheltering in place has seemed to slow the spread of the novel Coronavirus.
