Taylor Swift fell onstage a day after her rained-out concert, and handled it like the shero she is
Taylor Swift is a pop star warrior. On Saturday, July, 21st, Swift performed her entire Reputation Stadium Tour concert at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey in the pouring rain like it was nothing. Thankfully the rain had ended by the time she returned to the stage on Sunday night, but this time she suffered a “choreography malfunction.” She slipped on the stage, but “choreography malfunction” is more fun to say.
Surprisingly, Swift got through an entire concert in the rain on Saturday night with zero mishaps but slipped on the dry floor the next night. A fan shared a video of the moment when Swift fell, recovered like a champ, and then spontaneously and playfully pushed her dance partner away as if this was all one big intentional choreographed mishap. Fans on Twitter seem to think the dancer tripped Swift, but let’s not point fingers. The point here is that Swift fell and popped right back up like it was all a seamless part of the show.
Swift has been battling random stage issues recently. Aside from the fall and the rain, she also endured a stage malfunction during a Philadelphia show earlier this month.
During the stage incident in Philadelphia, Swift got stuck in a floating basket during “Delicate” and point-blank told the audience that something wasn’t right.
"So what you just saw was me going straight up and down in this sparkly basket. It's supposed to take me to the other side of the stadium," Swift explained to the fans. "So I’m just going to figure out what to do next. I’m somehow going to figure out how to get over there. Will that be okay? So what happens now is basically like, I’m just chilling, waiting to figure out what happens next."
Instead of panicking, or forcing an intermission, Swift performed a capella renditions of “Our Song” and “Wildest Dreams” while her team sorted out the basket fiasco.
