Taylor Swift postpones second Brazil Eras Tour show after ‘extreme temperatures’ caused fan’s death

And that’s the way she loved them.

Taylor Swift has postponed her second concert in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Saturday night due to the sweltering temperatures — and after one fan died from cardiac arrest ahead of her first Eras Tour show in the city.

“I’m writing this from my dressing room in the stadium. The decision has been made to postpone tonight’s show due to the extreme temperatures in Rio,” she wrote on her Instagram Story Saturday afternoon.

“The safety and well-being of my fans, fellow performers and crew always has to come first.”

It’s unclear when the concert will take place as no more information was given.

The change in plans comes after Swift, 33, mourned the loss of one of her Brazilian fans — Ana Clara Benevides — who went into cardiac arrest and died ahead of her opening Eras Tour concert in Brazil.

“I can’t even tell you how devastated I am by this.”

The postponement came after a fan named Ana Clara Benevides fainted and died in  Estádio Nilton Santos as she awaited the show to start.

She added that she would not address the upsetting loss during her concert because she is “overwhelmed with grief.”

“I want to say now I feel this loss deeply and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends,” the 12-time Grammy winner continued.

“This is the last thing I ever thought would happen when we decided to bring this tour to Brazil.”

Swift said she was “overwhelmed with grief” after hearing the tragic news in a social media post to fans ahead of Friday’s concert.

According to Benevides’ social media posts from Friday, she had waited hours to get into Estádio Nilton Santos in 95° F temperatures.

While she made it into the stadium and her front row seats, the Brazilian newspaper Folha de S.Paulo reported that she eventually “fainted” due to the extreme heat.

She was “resuscitated at the stadium” before being loaded into an ambulance, in which she tragically died before making it to the hospital.

Social media videos from the concert showed Swift pausing her show just to give parched fans water as the heat took a toll on them.

Swift is known for rarely canceling concerts and will even play in thunder and lightning if it’s safe.

However, she was forced to postpone her second Buenos Aires, Argentina show last Friday night because of torrential rainfall that eventually flooded the stadium.
