In a video shared by a fan page on X (formerly known as Twitter), the pop star acknowledged the rainy weather, saying, “So it looks like we have officially had a rain show tonight, this is a rain show for sure.

That is set, that is permanent because it doesn’t matter if it rains again, it really did rain during this show.”

Seated at a piano adorned with moss, Swift continued, “You guys are absolute champions and heroes for dancing even harder when it started raining.”

The crowd erupted in cheers as she praised them for their enthusiasm. Swift noted that despite her infrequent tours in Europe, she felt deeply grateful for the warm reception from her overseas fans.

During the concert, Swift also showed her attentiveness to her audience by addressing a fan who appeared to need assistance. Speaking in French, she called for help and emphasized the importance of taking care of the crowd.

“Yeah we have to take care of these crowds because you’re just the best and you just dance so wildly and sing so loudly,” she said, highlighting the connection she feels with her fans.

The concert was filled with memorable moments, including Swift’s excitement to perform “Champagne Problems.” Playing the piano, she shared her joy with the audience, saying, “I never could have imagined we would have this much fun on the European tour. It’s just been crazy, you guys, and I appreciate it so much.”

In addition to her heartfelt interactions with fans, Swift celebrated Pride Month during the Lyon show. As she performed “You Need to Calm Down,” rainbow lights illuminated the stage, and fans waved their arms in unison. “Happy Pride Month, Lyon,” Swift exclaimed, marking the occasion with enthusiasm.

Swift’s Lyon performance followed two “magical nights” in Madrid, Spain, where she also expressed her gratitude to her fans. On Instagram, she posted a heartfelt message, saying, “I LOVE YOU FOREVER MADRID!!! No ability to convey my thoughts other than to just YELL that.

We just got to spend 2 magical nights dancing and singing with the most electrifying, passionate crowds and I’ll never forget a second of it. I can’t thank you all enough. See you Lyon!.”
