Taylor Swift Goes Absolutely Wild During her ‘Rain Show’ on the Eras Tour in France

The rain came pouring down during Taylor Swift’s Eras concert in France on Sunday, June 2 — a special treat for both the singer herself and her fans, who know “rain shows” are a rare and magical wonder.

“So it looks like we have officially had a rain show tonight, this is a rain show for sure,” Swift, 34, excitedly told fans during the first of her shows in Lyon on Sunday. “That is set, that is permanent because it doesn’t matter if it rains again, it really did rain during this show.”

Swift — who incorporated the weather into several of her onstage dance moves during her 3.5 hour set that night — told the crowd: “You guys are absolute champions and heroes for dancing even harder when it started raining.”

The “Maroon” singer did the same. During her performance of “Delicate,” for example, Swift stuck out her tongue to taste the rainwater after singing the line, “But you can make me a drink.” Another clip from the shows featured the singer dramatically swinging the sleeves of her dress so that rainwater splashed everywhere.

Swift, for her part, celebrated the “rain show” on social media on Tuesday, June 4, after playing two sold-out shows in Lyon.

“Merci, Lyon!! We loved playing for you, dancing with you, and singing with you in the rain!” the “Anti-Hero” artist captioned a series of rainy snaps from the June 2 show. “Yep, we had our first official RAiN SHOW of the European leg of The Eras Tour!! Loved every minute of both shows.”

Fans, of course, reveled in the rainy performance.

“The way I hate the rain but will never recover from a Taylor rain show needs to be studied 💀😭,” one person tweeted.

“taylor rain show best experience of my life,” another wrote.

“The rain was a paid actor #LyonTSTheErasTour,” noted a third fan.

In addition to the excitement of the rainy weather, Swift did ask for help — in French — to make sure that a fan in the crowd was OK. (She did the same in Madrid, speaking Spanish, just days earlier.)

“Yeah, we have to take care of these crowds because you’re just the best and you just dance so wildly and sing so loudly,” Swift remarked, per People.
