Taylor Swift left her Filipino fans heartbroken when she announced that she will hold three concerts in Singapore for The Eras Tour in 2024—and it will be her only stop in Southeast Asia.
On Wednesday, June 21, the singer shared additional international dates for her concert tour that will push through next year, including three shows at the National Stadium in Singapore from March 2-4.
“EXCUSE ME HI I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY,” she wrote in her Instagram post. “I can’t wait to see so many of you on The Eras Tour next year at these new international dates!”

The Philippines is, unfortunately, not included in her upcoming schedule, leaving a lot of Filo Swifties heartbroken. Many shared their reactions to the sad news on Twitter, while some bared their plan to fly to Singapore just to catch her live.
Maine Mendoza, for one, did the same “manifestation” trick on Twitter that worked with her soon-to-be-husband Arjo Atayde. “Eras tour in Manila cutie!!! Hihi try lang,” she tweeted, adding a fingers crossed emoji.
“Ayaw mo bang makipaglato-lato sa amin, Taylor Swift?” a Pinoy Swiftie joked.
“We just lost the battle, Filo Swifties,” another one tweeted.
There were also some who tweeted a crying scene from the singer’s music video for All Too Well (10-Minute Version) as they reacted to the news.

Another fan changed the lyrics to one of her songs as they expressed their hope for Taylor to hold a concert in the country.

A Twitter user, meanwhile, said that going to Singapore for one of her shows would be their “best bet” as it will be held in a spacious stadium that could pull off the Eras Tour gimmicks and meet her demand.
Taylor is also holding four concerts at the Tokyo Dome in Japan from Feb. 7-10.
Swift announced The Eras Tour in November last year, describing it as a journey through the musical eras of her career thus far. The ongoing first leg will run from March 18 to Aug. 5 at stadiums across the United States. It's set to conclude in August 2024.
