Another said she left the event with three severe burns as "the metal plates that covered the floor turned into hot plates at 40 degree Celsius." A third said the conditions were 'inhumane' inside the stadium, with crowds pushing up against each other. "When they opened the entrance, I was pushed and fell to the ground HOT. I got two second-degree burns that wouldn't stop burning in the sun," they added.

It comes after Taylor choked up on stage at the Eras Tour, fighting back tears as she performed a piano ballad during the second show in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, lyrically announcing that she is "sick with sadness" following the deaths of two of her young fans.
