During her Eras Tour concert in Chicago, Taylor Swift accidentally swallowed a bug on stage and coughed and gagged in front of 60,000-plus fans before jokingly remarking, “Oh, delicious, is there any chance that none of you saw that?” to recover from the mishap.
Pop superstar Taylor Swift had an unexpected moment during her Eras Tour concert in Chicago on Sunday when a bug flew into her mouth. Swift began coughing and gagging onstage in front of over 60,000 fans at Soldier Field. The incident was captured on video and shared on social media. The singer quickly recovered and joked with the audience, saying, “I swallowed a bug. I’m so sorry… Oh, delicious. Oh, God. Is there any chance that none of you saw that?” She then admitted, “It’s fine, it’s all, it’s — I’ve swallowed it.”
Swift continued to charm the audience with more jokes about the incident and the prevalence of bugs, saying, “So I’m just gonna try not to do as many of those. This is gonna happen again tonight. There’s so many bugs. There’s a thousand of them. Anyway, this has been fun.” The incident happened during her third and final concert in Chicago. On Friday, she kicked off her time at Soldier Field with a message for her LGBTQIA+ fans in celebration of the beginning of Pride Month.
Swift encouraged her fans to stand up for the LGBTQIA+ community beyond Pride Month by taking action and voting in local elections. “We can support as much as we want during Pride Month, but if we’re not doing our research on these elected officials, are they advocates? Are they allies? Are they protectors of equality?” she said. On Saturday night, Swift surprised the audience by bringing out Maren Morris to perform “You All Over Me.” Morris is the latest artist to join the Eras Tour, with Ice Spice having performed their “Karma” remix during the New Jersey stop late last month.
Swift’s tour continues through October, with dates in the United States, Canada, and Europe. The tour is in support of her latest albums “folklore” and “evermore,” which have both received critical acclaim and commercial success. Swift is known for her engagement with her fans and her commitment to social causes, using her platform to speak out against discrimination and promote equality.
