Heartbroken Filipino Swifties took to social media to express their dismay as pop superstar Taylor Swift excluded the Philippines from her highly anticipated The Eras World Tour.
Comparisons were drawn between the iconic Philippine Arena and Singapore’s National Stadium, both capable of accommodating 55,000 concertgoers.
Devoted fans flocked to Twitter, with user @mart712in boldly asserting that the reason behind the Philippines’ exclusion from the Asian tour dates was the Philippine Arena’s alleged failure to meet the stringent requirements of a national stadium within an urban setting.
Japan and Singapore secured coveted spots on Taylor Swift’s 2024 tour schedule, leaving the Philippines yearning for a glimpse of their beloved pop sensation.
Taylor WANTED the PH – word from intel said – we didn’t meet the reqts. of the show. It has bn a gr8 frustration of mine 4 all of us that the PH does not have a PROPER national stadium w/n its urban area. These stadiums meet regular hosting requirements – the PH Arena does not. https://t.co/ZhTsIn4bvS
