Enhanced security measures for Taylor Swift’s S’pore concerts after ‘gatecrashing’ of VIP1 sections

A 23-year-old social media manager, who only wanted to be known as Ms Alina, was seated in VIP1 section PD2, facing the diamond portion of the Eras Tour stage where Swift spends much of her time during the concert.

The fan told ST: “People from other sections kept coming to our section. Not only that, the security guards didn’t really know what to do, and as a result, people were overcrowding our section. They were shoving us. It was hard to breathe at some points.”

She added: “At one point, a group of girls stood right behind me, squeezing in and screaming into my ear. During my favourite song, Tolerate It, one girl even put her hands on my shoulders and asked me to move ‘because she couldn’t see’.”

The situation persisted throughout the 3½-hour concert. Ms Alina said: “I’m just so aghast. It was meant to be a treat to me… I’m just disheartened my money was wasted like this.”

Ms Calista Wong, a 23-year-old student, shared a similar experience, albeit on the other side of the stage. She was seated in VIP1 section PD3, which is directly opposite PD2 and also facing the diamond stage.

“I got into verbal arguments with people in the walkways, who were pushing me, touching me and otherwise invading my personal space,” said Ms Wong, who was seated in the first row, in the seat by the left aisle.

She added the situation got so severe that Swift’s own security team intervened. “I was wondering if Taylor noticed because the entire security crew came over, including her head of security, whom I recognised from photos.”
