Taylor sure knows how to sway her audience!

As Swift embarked on the European leg of her Eras Tour from May 9, she ventured through Paris performing her global hits before conducting her first-ever concert in Lisbon on May 24.

In a video shared on X (formerly known as Twitter) by The Hollywood Reporter, the popstar was seen greeting the massive crowd in Portuguese as she stood center stage at the Estádio da Luz stadium. As she placed her hand upon her chest in deep gratitude, she said, “Muito obrigada,” which translates to “thank you very much” in English.

Instantly the crowd in thedio cheered unable to contain their surprise and excitement. Clearly taken aback by the magnanimous crowd response, the 34-year-old singer fanned herself as she beamed at the audience, before adding, “Oh, Lisbon you … you’re making me feel amazing right now!” She then proceeded to clutch her chest one more time before resuming her performance.

Elsewhere down the concert, the 14-times Grammy winner spoke in Portuguese again when she was trying to cue the security to check on a bunch of concert-goers as seen in another video. This exchange took place during her performance of “The Smallest Man in the World” from her new album The Tortured Poets Department, where she is heard instructing the security guards, “Ayuda por favor,” which translates to “Help them, please,” and pointed at the direction where her audience required assistance.

The video was met with an uproar of positive views, commenting on Swift’s empathetic and selfless behaviors during her concerts. One user wrote, “She genuinely cares so much and it’s one of the reasons i love her.” Another X user said, “Always caring for us,” whereas a third wrote, “Oh mother is mothering,” which means Taylor cares so much about her fans, that she shows a maternal gesture to them.

Before the Lisbon concert, while performing in Stockholm, Sweden, the singer paused her concert to ask if her audience needed help seen in a video shared on X by a concert-goer named Angela, where Swift was heard saying, “Someone in the front row can either tell me ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to this question: When you guys are putting a bunch of flashlights up in a group, does that mean people need help?” before adding, “I just didn’t know if you were, like, waving at me. But I’m happy to know clarification on that.”

Portugal Swifties had to wait a long time before they could witness Swift live since she was previously scheduled to perform at the Alive festival in July 2020, but the show was canceled due to the COVID pandemic.

A photo posted on X from Friday’s concert showed Swift wearing an updated costume for her ‘1989’ album where she donned a Roberto Cavalli featuring a sparkly purple bralette pared with a sparkly blue mini skirt, and paired it with blue and purple glittery boots.
