Swift postpones Charlotte show due to illness



After cancelling her Louisville concert July 2 due to illness, Taylor Swift is postponing this weekend's concerts as well. Her Charlotte show scheduled for Friday, July 8 is now set for November 16. Her Atlanta shows set for July 9 and 10 were moved to October 1 and 2.

Swift, who has bronchitis, was advised by her doctor to reschedule the shows. In a statement Swift says: It breaks my heart to miss out on this weekend’s shows with my friends in Charlotte and Atlanta. I would never cancel if I thought I was physically able to perform these shows. I am so sorry to the fans, but I look forward to seeing you when we come back through your towns, which we will do.”

Swift is currently scheduled to play 98 shows in 17 countries during her 2011 "Speak Now" tour. She plans to resume the tour in Montreal July 14.

  4. Phat Sacks, She might as well go out with you since she's already sick. I'll wait to take her out when she's 100 percent.

  5. Well this is just great. It's not a big deal to postpone, but moving from a weekend to weekday (SCHOOL BEDTIME) is terrible. This concert is going to be filled with preteen girls who have school the next day. What a crock!

  12. Amazing that the Atlanta shows are still on the same nights - Saturday and Sunday - as the original dates. Why did the Charlotte event change from weekend to mid-week? A lot of girls will be out of school over this!
