If you're a Taylor Swift fan, it must have bummed you out when the singer had canceled her intensely anticipated Lover Fest tour due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ensuring social distancing is the best way for all of us to get out of this pandemic healthy, however, Swift didn't leave us high and dry. ABC announced that we will be able to see Swift in concert anyway mid-May with a concert special of Swift performing in Paris.
After the singer announced last month that all of her 2020 concert dates were postponed, this was definitely a breath of fresh air, especially for Swifties. On Friday, May 8, Swift revealed the news on a video message on 'Good Morning America'.
She also took to Twitter announcing the news with a short video introducing the upcoming concert. The tweet read, "Excited to announce the City of Lover Concert! We filmed my show in Paris in September and thought it’d be fun to share it with you! #TaylorSwiftCityOfLover."
Eric Avram, ABC Entertainment's VP of talent and booking said, "While we are all home, Taylor Swift and her family of fans will be able to have a moment together and experience a never-before-seen, intimate performance and we are so thrilled to be able to offer this to our own family of viewers on ABC."
An NME article of the Paris concert quoted Swift as saying, "There are a lot of the songs on this album that's just come out that I’ve never played live before, and I was thinking about how I'd really like to play some of these songs for the very first time."
"And I was thinking maybe the best way to do it would be just playing the songs acoustic the way that I wrote them." So we're definitely in for a treat!
The Taylor Swift City of Lover Concert will air on May 17.
