Taylor Swift Eras Tour: Sydney concert evacuated as lighting strikes hit Accor Stadium

Taylor Swift fans have been evacuated from the Accor Stadium in Sydney after lightning strikes nearby – with the superstar’s performance now delayed.

Wild weather lashing Sydney on Friday evening has caused chaos for the more than 80,000 Swifties heading to her first show of the Eras Tour in the city.

Fans sitting on the floor and lower bowl levels of the stadium were asked to move inside after lightning struck just 10 kilometres away.

A statement from Accor Stadium told concert-goers the three-hour show has been delayed.

‘Please note, due to weather, show start time has been delayed,’ it said.

‘Stay undercover until further notice and follow venue screens and staff instructions.

‘Stay safe and remember to be kind to those around you.’
