The axed 2020 calendar included Swift's North America debut of "Lover Fest," her stadium-size traveling music festival accompanying the 2019 album of the same name. Lover Fest planned to stop for two nights in Los Angeles and Foxborough, Massachusetts, respectively.
Prior to COVID-19, Swift plotted to spend much of summer 2020 performing overseas, with dates previously scheduled in Germany, France, Spain and the United Kingdom, among others. The decision impacts 16 concerts listed on Swift's website.
