Swift almost immediately tweeted, “I’m sending my love to the fans in Thailand. I’m so sad about the concert being cancelled.” It would have been her first-ever show in Thailand.

The Thai military has taken over the reins of government following protracted political strife in the Southeast Asian country, and last week imposed a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew.
