Taylor Swift demonstrated that nothing is more important than her fans by refusing to finish her most recent Eras Tour concert until someone in the audience got help.

Swift, 34, halted her surprise song set — a mashup of “Would’ve Could’ve Should’ve” and “I Know Places” — on night one of her performances in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Friday, June 7, to signify that an audience member needed assistance.

According to a social media video discovered online, when the fans did not respond quickly, Swift said that the concert would not continue until they were acknowledged.

“She is right there. “I’m just gonna keep playing until somebody helps them, I’m gonna be singing this song,” Swift sang as she strummed her guitar, adding that someone would ultimately listen to her because she was “going to keep talking” about the problem until she got a response.

“Please let me know.” “I can do this all night,” she added, becoming impatient. When someone saw the fan in need, she said, “We’re good? Awesome!” she said, before resuming her act.

Swift made it her job to keep an eye out for fans in distress during her tour, which sold an estimated 4.35 million tickets to over 60 shows in North America, Argentina, and Brazil before she even began the international leg.

The “Anti-Hero” singer has indicated that she is willing to cancel the event until she can secure everyone’s safety. In May 2023, she halted her 1989 performance with “Bad Blood” to rage at a security officer who was bullying a concertgoers.

Six months later, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, she was focused on keeping spectators hydrated amid a scorching heat wave. (One fan, Ana Clara Benavides, unfortunately, died of heat exhaustion before one of the concerts.)

“There are people that need water right here, maybe 30, 35, 40 feet back,” she stated on stage during the Evermore concert, gesturing to a part of the audience on the floor. “So, whoever is in charge of providing them that, please make sure it occurs. Can you give me a signal that you know where they are?

Following Benavides’ death, a source exclusively told Us Weekly that Swift was “beside herself” at the tragedy, adding that the singer’s crew had “reached out” to the fan’s family.

The source went on to say that Swift was “grateful” to have her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, at her side at the moment, describing him as a “huge support system” following the tragedy.

Swift’s commitment to ensuring safety dates back before the Eras Tour, when 22 people were murdered as a consequence of a bombing at Ariana Grande’s 2018 Manchester show. She began her Reputation stadium tour only months afterward.

“I was completely terrified to go on tour this time because I didn’t know how we were going to keep 3 million fans safe over seven months,” she said to Elle in 2019. “There was a great deal of planning, expense, and effort put into keeping my fans safe.” “My dread of violence has persisted into my personal life.
