Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Taylor postponed, and then cancelled the Lover Fest. She sent out a message on social media reading,[1]

I'm so sad I won't be able to see you guys in concert this year, but I know this is the right decision. Please, please stay healthy and safe. I'll see you on stage as soon as I can but right now what's important is committing to this quarantine, for the sake of all of us.

In early 2021, Taylor announced that she would no longer be rescheduling concert dates.


Stage design[]

When the tickets went on sale for the US show dates, a stage design was unintentionally leaked by Ticketmaster, as well as a scrapped stage for the SoFi Stadium shows. It featured a 360° heart-shaped stage in the middle of the venue. The scrapped stage design was a mix between the 1989 World Tour and Reputation Stadium Tour stages.
