The Grammy Award-winning singer was performing the song “Labyrinth” from her 2022 album, Midnights. Fans were delighted at the point that Swift sang the lyric, “I thought the plane was going down / How’d you turn it right around,” as an airplane could be seen flying over the venue.
Swift shared a clip of that moment to her X account, writing in the caption, “Never beating the sorcery allegations.” This likely refers to some viral TikToks equating her performances of “Willow” to coven gatherings.

The official “Willow” music video includes occult and ritualistic imagery when Swift goes into the woods at night with other individuals in hooded cloaks and masks. They all dance around a fire in a display that some deemed a celebration of witchcraft.
During a 2020 YouTube Q&A, Swift said the instrumentals for the song reminded her of “casting a spell to make someone fall in love with you.”
The imagery doesn’t match the lyrics, but the aesthetic has been carried into Swift’s Eras Tour performance. There are multiple videos on TikTok of audience members at the theatrical release of “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” also dancing around in circles in theaters when that song comes on.
Fans were also excited about Swift’s show on Saturday as her NFL paramour Travis Kelce and his dad were in attendance. The “Karma” singer changed the lyrics slightly to address her new romance, singing, “Karma is the guy on the Chiefs, coming straight home to me,” as the audience erupted into cheers.
After the show, fans caught Swift in a rare display of PDA as she ran into Kelce’s arms and gave him a kiss in front of the packed stadium.
During the singer’s last Buenos Aires show on Sunday, Swift asked fans to stop throwing items on stage. “Just because communication means having gentle, healthy boundaries, it really freaks me out when stuff gets thrown on the stage,” Swift told the crowd, as The Daily Wire previously reported.
“Because if it’s on the stage then a dancer can trip on it,” she said. “I love that you brought presents and that is so nice, but just, can you please not throw them on the stage? I love you so much.”
