Taylor Swift forced to stop sell-out London Eras Tour show and call on security

Taylor Swift paused her electrifying first London show to give a shout-out to her security team.

The global superstar, aged 34, is currently in London for an epic run at Wembley Stadium as part of her extensive 21-month Eras Tour. The city is buzzing with thousands of Swifties who've flocked to catch the first of Taylor's performances in the capital.

She's set to rock Wembley Stadium for three nights now and will return for another five shows in August.

The sold-out concerts are expected to draw a whopping 640,000 attendees in total, injecting an estimated £300million into London's economy, according to reports. But during her opening night at Wembley, Taylor, who was spotted with crates of booze as she landed her private Jet in the UK, had to take a brief pause from belting out her chart-toppers to get in touch with her security detail.

Amidst the fan-favourite tunes, she prepped the audience for what was coming next, reports the Mirror.

Taking a moment to express her gratitude, Taylor spoke directly to her fans: "You have sold out three nights at Wembley in June and five more nights in August. That means I get to play Wembley Stadium eight times this time because of you. It is all because of you."

She then engaged with the crowd, asking: "I know we have a lot of Londoners here tonight, am I correct? " which was met with thunderous applause. She followed up with: "We also have a lot of people from out of town who travelled right? ," prompting another round of cheers.

Taylor went on: "This is amazing, this is why we have such an incredible crowd. We have so many different people who have made plans to be with us here tonight."

Just as she was about to continue her performance, Taylor called out for a bit of assistance from security. She voiced aloud: "We need some help from just right at the end of the ramp where they are waving. Just kind of waiting until I can see that's sorted out. There we go. You guys are the best. They really care about you here at Wembley Stadium."

She kicked off her long-awaited UK tour in Edinburgh this month. Next up was Liverpool and Cardiff, where the adoring fans had an unforgettable time.

Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn at an event together.

Joe Alwyn has opened up about his split from Taylor and the public scrutiny that followed, amid rumours that he's mentioned in her latest album.

The pair were believed to be an item for six years before they called it quits last year. Now, Taylor is reportedly dating Travis Kelce, while Joe seems to have moved on as well.

Joe admitted that ending a long-term relationship can be tough, especially when it's under the public eye.

Speaking to the Sunday Times Style Magazine, as reported by PA Media, he said: "I would hope that anyone and everyone can empathise and understand the difficulties that come with the end of a long, loving, fully committed relationship of over six and a half years. That is a hard thing to navigate," reports the Mirror.
