Taylor Swift Announces Appearance in Melbourne


Regular horses die at the Melbourne Cup, and now Taylor Swift should be on the verge of a traditional race. But that does not happen - animal rights activists claim that as a success for themselves.

It is the most highly endowed horse race in Australia and Oceania - and at the same time a particularly controversial one: Since 2013, six horses died during the Melbourne Cup in the Australian city, last year a racehorse was euthanized during a gallop race after a shoulder fracture.

Animal rights activists were accordingly outraged when they learned of a planned performance by Taylor Swift on the sidelines of the traditional competition. The group "Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses" criticized Swift sharply - and apparently has now reached their goal.

Because Swift has canceled the performance. There she was supposed to sing two songs from her latest album "Lover". The organizer justified the cancellation with dates problems on Swifts Asia tour. It was "logistically impossible" for the artist to perform in Melbourne, according to a statement by the promotional agency Mushroom Events.

Taylor Swift: "The pressure was significant"

The animal rights activists, however, claim to have reached the concert cancellation. "The pressure on Taylor Swift to cancel her appearance was significant," the campaign said on Facebook. "Her fans did not want to see her support animal abuse."

The group had accused Swift of putting money above compassion, thereby supporting the mistreatment of animals. More than 6,500 people signed an online petition requesting Swift to cancel their appearance.
