“I can’t believe I’m writing these words but it is with a shattered heart that I say we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show. I can’t even tell you how devastated I am by this.
There’s very little information I have other than the fact that she was so incredibly beautiful and far too young.
I’m not going to be able to speak about this from stage because I feel overwhelmed by grief when I even try to talk about it.
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.”
Swifties on X are asking the venue to change their rules since they are not allowed to bring water inside the stadium.
Fans aren’t allowed to bring in water, and the heat today was above 100 degrees throughout the entire show.
The show’s organizers, Time4Fun, said on Instagram that Ana Clara Benevides Machado was attended by paramedics after feeling unwell. She was taken to the stadium’s first aid center, then to a hospital, where she died an hour later, according to a statement.
In a social media post online, Time4Fun said that due to recent events, they would allow concertgoers to bring in personal water bottles and food, cautioning people to pay attention to their bodies for signs of exhaustion.
