Taylor Swift today (Monday) became the first artist to perform four shows back-to-back at Sydney’s Accor Stadium, after stormy weather almost derailed Friday night’s concert.

The first Eras Tour show was able to go ahead on Friday evening despite heavy storms forcing a delay to the start time, with almost 81,000 fans attending the first of four dates at the 83,500-capacity venue.

Fans were initially evacuated due to the storm, and told to move out of the bowl area.

Stadium management told guests: “Please note, due to weather, the show start time has been delayed. Stay undercover until further notice and follow venue screens and staff instructions. Stay safe and remember to be kind to those around you.”

Support act Sabrina Carpenter was not able to play on Friday due to the storm-enforced delay, but accompanied Swift for the three other nights.

Before arriving in Sydney, Swift played three nights at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), welcoming over 288,000 fans. Each night saw 96,000 ‘Swifties’ fill the MCG – the largest crowds of the US singer’s career to date.

Swift will enjoy a few days off before heading to Singapore for six shows at the National Stadium between March 2-9.
