The singer took to social media on Friday to share the update, expressing that she "can't wait till we can all safely be at shows together again."

Taylor Swift has clarified that a handful of her Lover Fest shows that were postponed in the summer of last year will not be happening in 2021 due to the ongoing safety concerns.

The singer took to social media on Friday to share the update in a lengthy message. "I love coming on here to tell you good news, or to share a new project with you," she wrote. "It’s not my favorite thing in the world to have to tell you news I’m sad about. I’m so sorry, but I cannot reschedule the shows that we’ve postponed. Although refunds have been available since we first postponed the Lover Fest shows, many of you hung onto your tickets and I too hung onto the idea that we could reschedule."

She continued, "This is an unprecedented pandemic that has changed everyone’s plans and no one knows what the touring landscape is going to look like in the near future. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to see you in person as soon as I wanted to. I miss you terribly and can’t wait til we can all safely be at shows together again."

Last week, Swift dropped a re-recorded version of her "Love Story" single after announcing that she has completed the first re-recording of her second album, Fearless.

She made headlines after releasing two studio albums in 2020, Folklore – which became the first album to sell a million copies in 2020 — and Evermore, its poetic follow-up, in which she continued her collaboration with The National guitarist Aaron Dessner, as well as Bon Iver.
