Taylor Swift has rescheduled her second Eras Tour performance in Buenos Aires after the city was battered by lashings of rain and lightning – hours after her NFL boyfriend Travis Kelce touched down in Argentina to watch her show.
The pop star announced that her concert would be moved to Sunday November 12 as a result of the extreme weather – despite some fans having already traveled to the stadium in anticipation of her performance.
Swift, 33, said in a statement posted to her Instagram Stories: ‘I love a rain show but I’m never going to endanger my fans or my fellow performers and crew.
‘We’ve rescheduled tonight’s Buenos Aires show for Sunday due to the weather being so truly chaotic it would be unsafe to try and put on this concert. Good news is I get to stay in Argentina longer!!’
The decision to move the show was made after Buenos Aires was hit with monsoon-like conditions, as well as thunder and lightning, and came shortly after Kelce flew in to see his lover in action.

Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end Travis had been expected to watch Taylor perform for the first time since their relationship started five months ago – with the Bad Blood hitmaker going to several of his games.
DailyMail.com exclusively revealed on Friday that Swift’s NFL star boyfriend flew out of Kansas City at 11pm Thursday – making a one-hour stop in Panama City to refuel – before flying into Buenos Aires Friday afternoon.
He arrived at 2pm local time, touching down in a Gulfstream IV, after jetting off on a late night flight.
The Chiefs tight end appeared to have made the long haul flight alone as he was the only passenger seen getting off the plane.
Exclusive DailyMail.com photos showed Kelce leaving the airport shortly after disembarking, wearing a beige cable knit sweater, green baseball cap and khaki cargo sweatpants, and a pair of Salehe Bembury Crocs, that retail for $85.

The songstress looked exuberant and put on a dynamic performance, at one point even playfully giving her bicep a kiss, as she returned to the stage to continue her successful tour, following a short break after wrapping up her U.S. shows.
It was the first night of her three-day stop in Buenos Aires, which marks the start of the international leg of her Eras Tour – a months-long endeavor that is predicted to net the star a staggering $4.1 billion.
The superstar thrilled her adoring fans with a number of glamorous looks during the show.
Aside from her pink bodysuit, she also stunned in a hot pink blazer dress and matching boots.
Another look worn by the Anti-Hero singer consisted of a romantic gold and silver dress.
The parade of fashion continued with a stunning olive-toned gown, and later a two-piece beaded blue outfit that showed off her toned tummy.
Swift then made another fashion change, slipping into a dreamy pastel purple gown, before changing yet again into a glittering silver dress and lavender fur coat.
The show came to its conclusion with fireworks lighting up the sky.
Sabrina Carpenter, 24, was the singer’s opening act for the show. She sizzled in a white bustier style mini dress, and chunky silver boots. Her dress featured embellished crystal hearts on the bust.
Many fans are hoping to catch a glimpse of Kansas City Chief’s tight end Kelce at the show, with the player having a two-week break in his schedule.
Swift has been showing her support for her new beau by attending several games at the Arrowhead Stadium, and hosted a watch party for the WAGs at her New York apartment as the Chiefs took on the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

For the fans: Super fans of the pop sensation have been camping out for five months in anticipation of the star bringing her Eras Tour to Buenos Aires
In Kansas: Though he is expected to join her sometime this weekend, Travis was still in Kansas City on Thursday night. He was seen at a gala supporting his teammate Patrick Mahomes
The superstar pair’s whirlwind romance has taken over America, with Taylor traveling to watch Travis play in three of his last four games.
It comes after Kelce teased his bye week plans on his ‘New Heights’ podcast with his brother, Eagles center Jason Kelce.
Speaking on the show, Travis was asked by his brother if he was looking forward to any upcoming plans.
‘No, not really,’ he said.
However, he soon added, ‘I might just say f*** it and just go somewhere nice, I don’t know. My skin’s getting real pale, so I gotta go somewhere sunny… closer to the equator.’
Jason then asked if his brother would be travelling ‘south of the equator,’ – where Argentina is, of course – which elicited a big laugh from Travis.
Swift touched down in Buenos Aires solo, on Wednesday afternoon.

Connecting with the crowd: The star connected with the crowd as she pointed to someone in the audience
Dozens of ‘Swifties’ have been sleeping in small tents outside of the Estadio River Plate Stadium in Argentina in a bid to get the first glimpse of the star on stage in two months.
It will be the first time that Taylor has ever played in South America, restarting the Eras Tour in Argentina for three nights, before travelling to Brazil.
But rising ticket prices in the US has seen fans from across the US making the trip to South America to watch the pop star – leaving locals concerned they might be pushed to the back of the line.
Other fans complained that supplies for friendship bracelets, which are popular with the fanbase, have completely sold out in Buenos Aires.
Footage inside the Estadio River Plate Stadium shows the process of Swift’s stage being built, with insiders telling DailyMail.com the set takes at least two days to recreate after being shipped from the US.
Apart from South America, Swift’s international run will also make stops in Asia and Australia, all the way into August 2024.
Swift will return to the States for a second round of shows in the U.S. and Canada beginning in fall 2024.
The Eras Tour – her first tour in five years – was announced last November.
Will he attend? Her NFL beau Travis, 34, was not present for Friday’s show but will reportedly support the singer this weekend; they are seen October 15
In October it was reported that her lucrative Eras Tour is likely to earn Taylor $4.1 billion – the most an artist has ever made from a single tour in history.
The singer’s earnings solely from her worldwide tour are the equivalent of the economic output of 42 nations, according to estimates over her wealth from Peter Cohan, an associate professor of management at Babson College, cited by the Washington Post.
Swift’s record-breaking tour has also poured billions more into the US economy, with the huge production leading to extensive travel, ticket sales and merchandising opportunities for her legions of ‘Swifties.’
Average ticket prices stand at around $450, a hefty sum that has fueled a record-earning run for the star as she packs out stadiums across the globe.
Meanwhile her Eras Tour documentary-style film – which hit theaters last month – earned $95-$97 million at the domestic box office on its opening weekend, according to The Wrap.
