Podium collapse in Australia halts Swift show
Monday, December 9, 2013
– Taylor Swift's Brisbane, Australia concert on Saturday had to be temporarily halted due to the collapse of a podium near the stage.
No one was injured in the accident, which halted the concert. Promoters should the lights, lunging Suncorp Stadium into concert. Fans were hurried away from the area. It was unclear what caused the problem.
"I'm going to come back and sing for you and we're going to pretend like this never happened. Love you Brisbane," said Swift to the crowd.
Less than one percent of fans were affected, and those fans can receive a complete refund. They were located to a different area of the stadium during the show. About 40,000 people attended the show.
Swift's Australia tour began Wednesday in Sunday and continues this Wednesday in Perth and Saturday in Melbourne.
