Heavy thunderstorms thwart Taylor Swift's second concert in Buenos Aires

Organisers pull show amid dreadful weather and reschedule concert for Sunday.

The second of Taylor Swift's three concerts in Buenos Aires was cancelled on Friday because of a heavy thunderstorm, lightning and torrential downpours battered the capital, organisers announced. 

The concert was rescheduled for Sunday "due to adverse weather conditions and prioritising the safety of the public," said concert promoters DF Entertainment.

"I love concerts in the rain but I will never put my fans or my team at risk. We rescheduled tonight's show for Sunday because the weather conditions are really so chaotic that it would be risky to rehearse and perform the concert. The good news is that I'm going to stay in Argentina longer," Swift later posted on Instagram.

Hundreds of Swifties had lined up for hours in the rain outside the Monumental stadium in Núñez to get good seats and positions

Swift, 33, performed for the first time in Argentina on Thursday night at the Monumental stadium in front of nearly 80,000 spectators. She played a set lasting more than three hours and at one point told the crowd they were "the most epic audience ever."

Swift is scheduled to perform a second concert on Saturday night, also at the Monumental, as part of her The Eras Tour.

Her current partner, American footballer Travis Kelce, flew into Buenos Aires on Friday in order to attend her show.
