Taylor Swift nearly made a young fan’s dream come true by bringing her onstage during an “Eras Tour” show, but she said she immediately changed her mind when she thought about the child’s safety.
While performing “22” at the “Eras Tour” concert in Chicago on Saturday, the singer, 33, had a brief interaction with a young girl in the crowd.
A clip of the moment shows how Swift gave a young girl in the audience her black top hat and appeared to briefly try to help her get on the stage before ushering her back down.
In the caption of the 15-second clip, which has amassed nearly 150,000 views, the user wrote: “BLESS THE GIRL WHO GOT THE 22 HAT TRIED TO CLIMB ON STAGE.”
Later in the concert, Swift told the audience that she was thinking of the fan’s safety. A clip shared by the fan account @UpdatingSwiftly on Twitter caught the moment Swift addressed the interaction.
“I’m just like, ‘I’m going to bring her on the stage, I’m just going to hug her and bring her on the stage,'” Swift said, recalling her mindset. “And then I remembered we don’t have a safe way to get her off the stage.”
