Pop sensation Taylor Swift has made official what most fans already suspected: the handful of “Lover Fest” shows that she was scheduled to do in the summer of 2020 won’t be happening in summer 2021, either, or ever. While fans had previously had the option to hold onto their tickets in case rescheduling was possible, she’s put the kibosh on that possibility.
“I love coming on here to tell you good news, or to share a new project with you,” Swift wrote on her Instagram and Twitter accounts. “It’s not my favorite thing in the world to have to tell you news I’m sad about. I’m so sorry, but I cannot reschedule the shows that we’ve postponed. Although refunds have been available since we first postponed the Lover Fest shows, many of you hung onto your tickets” — and, she affirmed, “I too hung onto the idea that we could reschedule.”

Taylor Swift continued, “This is an unprecedented pandemic that has changed everyone’s plans and no one knows what the touring landscape is going to look like in the near future. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to see you in person as soon as I wanted to. I miss you terribly and can’t wait til we can all safely be at shows together again.”
