Taylor Swift paused her Eras Tour set in Argentina to plead with her fans to stop engaging in an out-of-control crowd trend.
The US pop star kicked off the South American leg of her blockbuster tour at the weekend, performing three sold-out shows in Buenos Aires.
Shortly after beginning her final concert on Sunday, Swift, 33, politely asked concert goers not to throw items at her onstage.
“Because communication means having gentle, healthy boundaries, it really freaks me out when stuff gets thrown on the stage,” Swift candidly shared, in a video that’s been posted on social media.
Swift continued: “Because if it’s on the stage, then a dancer can trip on it … And I love that you brought presents. And that is so nice, but just, can you please not throw them on the stage? I love you so much.”
Objects being thrown at artists during their shows has been particularly prominent in recent months.
In June, US singer Bebe Rexha was hit in the face with a phone during her show in New York, with the star copping an eye injury that required stitches.
A month later, British super star Harry Styles was struck in the face while performing in Vienna, Austria.
In some more disturbing instances, Lil Nas X was hit with a sex toy during his July show in Sweden.
“Who threw they p**sy on stage?” the rapper said at the time.
Pink was left mortified after a fan threw a bag containing their mother’s ashes onstage during the rock star’s London concert in June.
While most musicians tend to shrug the occurrences off, Cardi B controversially returned serve during her show in Las Vegas in July.
The rapper pegged her microphone at a fan who had thrown a drink at her during her set.
The fan later reported the incident to police.
Meanwhile, Swift is next set to perform three shows in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from November 17 and finally, three shows in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The multi-Grammy winner will take a break in December before kicking off her 2024 Eras Tour with four shows in Tokyo, Japan from February 7.
Then it’s Australia’s turn, with Swift hosting three sold-out shows in Melbourne from February 16 and four in Sydney from February 23.
