The singer was scheduled to open the Lover Fest last April, a concert tour supporting her seventh studio album Lover. While most of the dates have been canceled due to concerns about the pandemic, stadium shows in the US and Brazil have been postponed to 2021.
However, a statement from Swift was posted on their website on Friday (Feb.26) announcing that the shows would not take place after all.
“I love coming here to tell you good news or to share a new project with you,” she wrote. “My favorite thing in the world is telling you news that I’m sad about. I’m so sorry, but I can’t postpone the shows that we postponed.

“Although refunds have been available since we first postponed the Lover Fest shows, many of you held onto your tickets, and I, too, held onto the idea that we could reschedule.”
She added that she couldn’t wait until she and her fans could “be safely back at shows together” and continued, “This is an unprecedented pandemic that has changed all plans and no one knows what the touring landscape will be like The near future.
“I’m so disappointed that I can’t see you in person when I want to.”
Since the release of Lover in 2019, Swift has released two more surprise albums, Folklore and Evermore.
In the meantime, after a dispute with Scooter Braun over the rights to her masters, the singer has re-recorded her music catalog.
A new version of their 2008 hit single “Love Story” was released this month. The newly recorded album Fearless (Taylor’s version) will be released in April.
