Taylor Swift’s tour date: Lover Fest
‘Lover Fest’ was supposed to take place in Los Angeles and Foxborough, Massachusetts.
Swift opted to forgo a worldwide tour and instead focus on that two-city event and perform at international festivals.
Since the release of the 2019 album ‘Lover’, the singer dropped sister albums titled ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’ in 2020.
The Grammy-winning singer is also set to drop the first re-recording of her albums in April following tensions with her Big Machine Label Group, Scooter Braun, Ithaca Holdings, and Shamrock Holdings – the latter of which currently owns the rights to her masters.
