TAYLOR Swift has issued an emotional apology as she announces canceled Lover Fest tour.
The pop songstress shared the disappointing news with fans as she explained she wanted to be able to 'safely' perform.
Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, Taylor, 31, had already been forced to postpone some of the 2020 summer tour dates until this year.
As she posted the statement to her Twitter page, the singer said: "I miss you terribly and can’t wait til we can all safely be at shows together again".
She wrote: "I love coming on here to tell you good news, or to share a new project with you. 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.
Taylor went on: "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."
The star, who is currently dating British actor Joe Alwyn, originally planned the tour to promote her 2019 album Lover.
But last year the artist also surprised fans with two albums recorded during lockdown – Folklore and Evermore.
Then earlier this month Taylor announced she has completed re-recording her breakthrough album after a bitter dispute with music manager Scooter Braun, who bought the rights to her back catalogue.
Her new version, titled Fearless (Taylor’s Version) will include 26 tracks — six more than the original — after she added a handful of never-before-heard songs written as a teenager.
She kicked off by releasing her re-recording of Love Story.
Taylor has regularly spoken of her fury at losing the rights to her own music as a result of the deal, labelling Scooter – who is manager of Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande – an “incessant, manipulative bully”.
The plan means he won’t earn any money from her original tracks if fans choose to play Taylor’s new versions, with the singer saying: "I’ve spoken a lot about why I’m remaking my first six albums, but the way I’ve chosen to do this will hopefully help illuminate where I’m coming from.
"Artists should own their own work for so many reasons, but the most screamingly obvious one is that the artist is the only one who really knows that body of work.”
