She continued, “I want to say now I feel this loss deeply and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends. This is the last thing I ever thought would happen when we decided to bring this tour to Brazil.”
The following day the “Lavender Haze” singer announced she’d be postponing her Nov. 18 show due to similarly extreme weather conditions.
“I’m writing this from my dressing room in the stadium,” Taylor said on her Instagram Stories. “The decision has been made to postpone tonight’s show due to the extreme temperatures in Rio. The safety and well-being of my fans, fellow performers, and crew has to and always will come first.”
After Ana’s tragic passing, show organizer Time 4 Fun announced plans to distribute free water at Taylor’s other shows in Rio and said multiple medical stations and mobile ICUs would be put in place at the venue.
