Taylor Swift Fan Powers Through Labor Contractions to Attend 3-Hour Eras Tour Concert



Taylor Swift in concert for more than a decade decided to brave her way through labor contractions so that she wouldn’t miss the singer’s March 4 Eras Tour concert in Singapore.

Natalie Wong, 29, told Singapore’s national online news outlet TODAY that she and her husband, 29-year-old Justyn Goh, bought their tickets to the third of six concerts that the “Anti-Hero” songstress scheduled for the Singapore leg of her Eras Tour before they found out that Wong was pregnant. They later learned that their baby’s tentative due date was March 4.

Despite pressure from others to sell their tickets, Wong said she was determined to go as a Swiftie who had wanted to see the “Cruel Summer” singer perform in person since becoming a fan in 2008. She kept her resolve even as she began experiencing labor contractions the morning of the show.

But since her contractions were relatively far apart—about 15 minutes, she told TODAY—Wong decided to attend the concert with Goh anyway and see how long she could make it, with the couple understanding that the contractions could last several hours or days.

“We held it out, and we went down to the stadium at 4:30 p.m., and the contractions were still happening,” she recalled. “It happened all the way until about 10 p.m., which was at Taylor’s last set, the Midnights Era set. And that was when, I think, I started going into active labor.”

After experiencing three hours of contractions at the concert, Wong and Goh left to find something to eat before going to the hospital, where Wong gave birth to their daughter, Emma, on March 5. The couple said their daughter is already a Swiftie and has a miniature friendship bracelet, which was gifted to her parents by another Swiftie at the show, to prove it.

Swift’s last concert at Singapore’s National Stadium was on March 9. She has a two-month break before her Eras Tour resumes with a string of dates in Europe, though fans still expect that she will keep busy as she prepares for the release of her 11th studio album The Tortured Poets Department on April 19.
