Tragedy at Taylor Swift’s Brazilian concert
During the Eras tour, he always performs two surprise songs acoustically, one on guitar, the other on piano, on Sunday night he sang Bigger Than The Whole Sky, the lyrics of which clearly referred to Ana Clara Benevides, who died on Friday night.
The chorus of the song goes like this in Hungarian:
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye / You were bigger than the whole sky / You were more than just a short time / And there’s a lot to digest / There’s a lot to live without / I’ll never meet / What you could have been, what you could have been / What you should have been / What you could have been, what you could have been.
His concert on Friday was not without tragedy: his 23-year-old fan fainted before the party started and his heart stopped, despite efforts to help him, they failed to revive him. Another thousand fainted during the performance, it was very hot. Although the thermometers showed 39 degrees, the heat sensation of the people was close to 60 degrees.
Dancing and singing on stage was stressful for Taylor Swift too, in the touching footage below, she can be seen gasping for air and barely able to stand on her feet.
He was supposed to perform on Saturday as well, but in the end he canceled his concert due to the high heat. A lot of people were outraged, but many thought his action was right, since people’s health and safety comes first.
He returned to the stage last night. He will also perform today in Rio de Janeiro, and then from Friday to Sunday He entertains the public in São Paulo.
