Taylor Swift fans know the US pop star loves a good rainstorm, she’s sung about it enough.
So it wasn’t surprising that the 33-year-old was happily able to continue her live show in Foxborough, Massachusetts on Saturday night (May 20), despite the pouring rain.
Clips shared on social media show a sodden but radiant Swift asking her audience at Gillette Stadium if they would like “one more song” before kicking off “Karma,” a single from her latest album Midnight.
As the track’s intro began, she donned a glittery jacket with the help of one of her dancers and struggled to suppress a laugh while pushing back her dripping wet hair.
Her dancers seemed to be enjoying the moment, too, smiling as they joined Swift on stage for the performance.
“I could have stayed for 1,000 more songs,” one fan wrote in the caption of his video shared on TikTok.
“Why isn’t she freezing?” asked one fan in the comments section, while another noted, “She looks so happy and having so much fun.”
Another had logistical questions, including: “How’s the mic okay with all that water?” What boots is she wearing so she doesn’t slip?”
Others joked about how stressed the crew must be, with one commenting, “I know the crew’s electricians must be stressed.”
Swift has endured numerous extreme weather conditions on the North American leg of her Eras tour, including in her hometown of Nashville, where she performed a three-and-a-half-hour performance with thunder and lightning rumbling overhead.

When it began to rain heavily about an hour into the performance, Swift simply told her 70,000-strong audience that it was “officially a rain show” and continued playing.
“It’s something we all do together. It’s like a connecting experience. We’re all going to walk out of here tonight looking like we’ve just been through five car washes…People will be like, ‘Where have you been?’ Multiple wars?’ And you say, “No, I was just on the Eras tour.” “It’s okay,” she added.
Many fans praised the singer’s “charisma” and “willingness” to continue the show despite the adverse weather conditions.
“The level of professionalism and respect for her fans makes me like her even more… like that’s a frigging artist,” one fan wrote after her show in Nashville.
