Taylor Swift’s ‘1989 Tour’ Stage Is All Too Powerful, Blamed For Postponing Baseball Game

If you’ve been able to catch Taylor Swift‘s 1989 World Tour, you already know just how elaborate her stage looks. And while the set design provides a great spectacle for Swifties, her lights accidentally zapped the power and postponed a baseball game later in the week. (Oops.)

Following Taylor’s two shows at Nationals Park in Washington D.C. last week, her stage reportedly used so much power that the baseball game between the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers had lighting issues on July 17.

After the game was canceled, a few of the baseball players expressed their frustrations with the “Blank Space” singer on Twitter.

While these players (and probably their fans too) blamed Taylor and her show, they might not realize that her set didn’t go as smoothly as her past gigs, either: In fact, she endured her own issues with the venue during the show.

Before she was going to sing 1989‘s “Clean,” her platform stopped and left her stranded above the stage.

“I’ll just be here, forever, stuck up here, unless I choose to jump down,” Swift told the crowd, which you can watch below.

It looks like the technical difficulties may not be all Taylor’s fault after all.

UPDATE: Fear not, Swifties! This incident was not at all Tay Tay related. According to an official statement from the Washington Nationals, the power outage was in fact caused by a “faulty circuit breaker,” and not the singer of “Shake It Off.” Phew!
