Platform Mishap

When it comes to stage mishaps, Taylor Swift and her crew are experts at shaking it off! During her second Eras Tour concert in Dublin on Saturday, June 29, Swift, 34, got stuck on a raised platform — but, thankfully, one of her dancers gave her a helping hand.

Unexpected Pause

While performing “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived,” a staple of the Tortured Poets Department portion of the tour setlist, the pop superstar was stranded midair on a platform at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium after it did not retract according to plan.

Rather than disappearing into the stage like the platform across from her — which held one of her backup dancers, Jan Ravnik — did, the part of the structure that the singer was standing on stayed firmly planted, fan-captured footage shows.

Ever the professionals, however, Swift and Ravnik did not miss a beat before smoothly handling the technical mishap.

Not wasting a moment, Ravnik walked over to the star’s platform immediately after his own reached the floor, and helped her down effortlessly as she smiled down at him, another clip of the performance shows.

Now both on flat ground, Swift and Ravnik went about business as usual, getting back into formation before “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived” bridge, during which a group of dancers emerge for some marching band-inspired choreography.

Swift’s Folklore Inspiration

During the same Eras Tour show, Swift opened up about Folklore — and revealed that Ireland played a large part in the development of the story of the fantasy-inspired pandemic-era album.

After performing “Cardigan,” the lead single from the record, which took home the Grammy for Album of the Year in 2021, Swift told the audience, “Folklore in general, it just belongs in Ireland.”

She continued, “How I imagined the album world looking [was like] Ireland. Storytelling with lots of different characters. You guys have that on lock, too. That’s very Irish, the storytelling.”

Conclusion

Taylor Swift’s ability to handle unexpected stage mishaps with grace and professionalism, combined with her heartfelt connection to her music and the stories behind it, continues to endear her to fans around the world. The Dublin concert was just another example of her resilience and talent shining through.
