AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift made light of a recent stage mishap. The "Anti-Hero" hitmaker joked that she saw her life flashed before her eyes after she nearly tripped and fell while performing an Eras Tour show in Tokyo on Friday, February 9.
In some videos taken by fans to X, formerly known as Twitter, the superstar could be seen stumbling when she walked down the stairs of a set piece featured during the "Folklore" portion of her concert. During the set, the singer looked ethereal in a white dress.
Brushing off the snafu, Taylor addressed the matter before she performed her song "Betty". "My life flashed before my eyes," she said, bringing laughter to the crowd. "It's all good, everything's fine, everything's great. I'm just so happy that I didn't fall."
Online, some fans jokingly called "Eras Tour" as "Errors Tour" because this wasn't the first time the Grammy winner experienced a few gaffes during performances. Some others, meanwhile, voiced their concern about the safety.
"I'm really glad that she wears that safety harness strap because if she didn't have it and she lost her balance just a little more that could ended in a nasty fall," one said. "doe [sic] she have a safety belt?? that's dangerous," someone added. Another concerned fan wrote, "laugh aside but that's actually so dangerous."
During her show on Wednesday, Taylor nearly fell off her chair while performing "Vigilante S**t". The musician was trying to straddle the chair during the song when she missed the seat. She handled the mishap like a pro as she remained in a squat position while steadying herself by reaching a hand back.
This weekend, Taylor is set to leave Japan for Las Vegas to support her boyfriend Travis Kelce at the 2024 Super Bowl. It's currently unknown where the "Karma" songstress will sit at the big game. The Kansas City Chiefs player's mom said, "You can understand that the boxes in Vegas are multimillion dollars, so I have a feeling I'm not in a box. I have a feeling I'm in the stands, so far as I know I'm in the stands with everybody else because it is a pricey Super Bowl."
