Taylor Swift’s stage malfunctions during Eras Tour in Cincinnati

Look what they made her do.

Taylor Swift was forced to rush backstage after her stage door failed to open properly during her Eras Tour in Cincinnati Friday.

The “All Too Well” songstress was seen in a video posted on TikTok waiting for the platform — designed to lower the singer backstage — to open up after she wrapped up one of her songs.

However, when the flooring took too long to activate, Swift ran toward the back of her stage, where backup dancers were already exiting.

The 33-year-old broke into a full sprint to seemingly make it in time for her next wardrobe change.


When the blunder occurred, Swift was wearing a one-legged black bodysuit with heeled boots.

However, as fans pointed out in the comment section of the TikTok video, the door finally began to open up right as the “Lover” singer was already headed backstage.

“Run (Taylor’s version),” one fan commented, while another joked that they “love” the “errors tour.”

Other fans gushed over the “dedicated” singer for running in heels to stay on schedule for the next song.

Swift is nearly four months into her Eras tour, which kicked off in March.

The Grammy winner has since encountered a handful of malfunctions, injuries and even a little drama.

In May, Swift came to the aid of a woman who was being harassed by a security guard during her Philadelphia show.

While singing “Bad Blood,” the singer could be heard yelling at the security guard to “stop” harassing the concertgoer.

The following day, the young woman shared via TikTok that the pop star’s team had gifted her tickets to the next show for her troubles.

Despite the speed bumps, Swift has kept the show going in the pouring rain and with an open wound on her hand.

The “Blank Space” songstress even took it in stride when a bug flew into her mouth during her Chicago show in front of over 60,000 fans last month.

In April, Swift performed for fans despite having an open wound.

“I swallowed a bug. I’m so sorry,” Swift said to the packed arena. “Oh, delicious. Oh, God. Is there any chance that none of you saw that?”

Continuing to joke, she added, “It’s fine, it’s all, it’s — I’ve swallowed it.”

“So I’m just gonna try not to do as many of those. This is gonna happen again tonight. There’s so many bugs. There’s a thousand of them. Anyway, this has been fun.”
