Taylor Swift Wows Fans by Speaking Portuguese at First-Ever Lisbon Concert During Eras Tour

Taylor Swift has once again captivated her fans, this time in Lisbon, Portugal, where she performed the first of two shows at the Estádio da Luz stadium on May 24.


This concert marked her debut in the country, and she delighted the audience not only with her music but also by speaking Portuguese.

The pop superstar, 34, opened her show with a heartfelt greeting in Portuguese, instantly connecting with her audience.

As she stood center stage, she placed her hand on her heart and said, “Muito obrigada,” which translates to “thank you very much” in English. This simple yet powerful gesture caused the stadium to erupt in cheers, demonstrating the deep connection between Swift and her fans.

She further endeared herself to the crowd by saying, “Oh, Lisbon you … you’re making me feel amazing right now!” while clutching her chest.

Throughout the concert, Swift continued to engage with her fans in Portuguese, showing her appreciation for their support. According to videos posted on social media, she used the phrase “ajuda por favor” (help please) to request assistance for fans in need during the concert.

This occurred during her performance of “The Smallest Man in the World” from her new album The Tortured Poets Department and again while playing the piano during “Champagne Problems.” Her efforts to communicate in Portuguese were met with admiration and further amplified the excitement of her performance.

Swift’s concert in Lisbon was highly anticipated by Portuguese fans, who had been waiting for this moment for years. She was initially scheduled to perform in Portugal at the Alive festival in July 2020, but the event was canceled due to the pandemic. The long wait only heightened the enthusiasm of her fans, making her debut in Portugal a momentous occasion.

In addition to her linguistic efforts, Swift also impressed with her fashion choices. During the concert, she unveiled an updated version of her Roberto Cavalli two-piece outfit for her “1989” performance. This time, she wore a sparkly purple bralet paired with a sparkly blue mini skirt and blue and purple glittery boots.

Her European leg of the Eras tour has been marked by several new outfits, showcasing her evolving style. These include a custom white Vivienne Westwood gown featuring lyrics from her latest album The Tortured Poets Department, an orange Versace bodysuit and blazer, and a yellow Alberta Ferretti dress.

Swift’s European tour has been a series of spectacular performances, with each city adding its own flavor to the tour. In Paris, she showcased several new outfits and was supported by her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, and friends Gigi Hadid and Bradley Cooper. The trio attended her fourth show in Paris on May 12, adding a touch of celebrity glamour to the event.
