Taylor Swift has cancelled her Lover Fest shows, due to the "unprecedented pandemic".

The 31-year-old star had planned a number of shows for last summer in support of her 2019 album 'Lover' but was forced to postpone them due to the COVID-19 crisis and now Taylor has revealed that she has axed all the shows completely.

She told her fans in a post on Instagram: "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.

"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 (sic)."

The shows were set to include Taylor's Lover Fests in Los Angeles and Foxborough, MA, along with international festival dates in England, Belgium, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Poland, France, Portugal and Brazil.

All of the shows were postponed last April as the pandemic raged around the world but they have now been cancelled.

Since releasing 'Lover' in 2019, Taylor has dropped two new albums, 'Folklore' and 'Evermore', which she secretly recorded during lockdown.
