Taylor Swift Experiences Difficulties in Brazil Following Eras Tour Victories

Taylor Swift's Eras Tour set records in North America, but it was marred by tragedy and mishaps during a three-day run in Rio de Janeiro.

Taylor Swift was greeted in Brazil on Thursday by a projection that transformed the world-famous Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro into a T-shirt similar to the one she wore in her 

"You Belong to Me" music video, complete with the names of Brazilian states and symbols from her songs.

However, tragedy and trouble have followed that warm reception.

At Friday night's show in Rio de Janeiro, a fan died from heat exhaustion

Swift canceled her Saturday show at the last minute, much to the chagrin of the thousands of fans who had already begun to fill the stadium. 

A fan who was in Rio de Janeiro for the regularly scheduled concert on Sunday was stabbed to death earlier that morning, according to military police.

The fatalities and other issues marked a departure from Swift's Eras Tour, a triumphant first leg of a career-spanning production that broke records in North America.

Fans were dealing with ruined travel plans, extreme heat, and disappointment as the tour's second show in Rio de Janeiro approached on Sunday night.
