Singer Taylor Swift recently gained widespread acclaim after a video from her concert in Edinburgh circulated on social media. In the video, Taylor is seen pausing her performance to help a distressed fan in the audience. While performing Would've, Could've, Should've from her album Midnight, she noticed the fan in need and stopped singing but continued to play the guitar, saying, "We need help right in front of me, please."

Taylor Swift's sweet gesture wins praises among netizens

Taylor reassured the audience, saying, "I'm just gonna keep playing 'til somebody helps them, then I'm gonna keep singing the song. I don't think anybody's gotten to them yet, and they're gonna. Because we're not gonna keep singing, we're just gonna keep talking about the people that need help in front of me. Just let me know when. I can do this all night."

Once assistance reached the fan and Taylor was informed that they were okay, she resumed her performance of the song. Fans praised her compassionate response, with comments like "She’s so humble" and "So nice of her."

Times when Taylor Swift has paused her concert for fans

This isn't the first time Taylor has paused a concert for a fan. At Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia last May, she interrupted her performance of Bad Blood to address a disturbance off-stage. During the song, she was heard shouting, "She's fine. She wasn't doing anything!" and "Hey! Stop!" before continuing her set.


Taylor Swift's Eras Tour in Edinburgh included three consecutive nights of performances from June 7 to June 9 at the Scottish Gas Murrayfield Stadium, which was temporarily renamed 'Scottish Lass' in her honour.
