Taylor Swift live-tweets ‘City of Lover Concert’ special
Taylor Swift surprises fans with City of Lover Concert' songs after her 2020 gets cancelled due to COVID-19 Pandemic
The Coronavirus Pandemic has brought the world to a standstill. Due to the Lockdown imposed by major countries across the globe a number of events, premieres and concerts have been canceled. Taylor Swift too postponed her 2020 Lover Fest tour dates, in light of coronavirus safety concerns. But she recently surprised fans as she performed acoustics of her songs on the social media platforms.
The intimate gig was filmed last September at Paris’s L’Olympia Theater. It was for an audience of devotees who flew in from 37 countries around the globe, shortly after Swift’s seventh album, Lover, came out.
Taylor kicked off the show with her hit “ME!” Following the song, the 30-year-old songstress thanked fans for “caring about this album, for listening to it, and for wanting to be here. In my mind, I look at this as a party, like a release party.”

Swift gushed onstage during the special, “A lot of these songs I’ve never played live before. The best way to do it would be just playing the songs acoustic, the way that I wrote them.”
Taylor gave a glimpse of her songs Death by a Thousand Cuts, Cornelia Street, The Man, and many more.
Following Sunday’s premiere on ABC, the concert is available on Hulu and Disney+ starting Monday.
