It’s certainly not something you would be able to “shake off” anytime soon. Whether you are a Taylor Swift fan or not, it’s fair to say she is everywhere at the moment as she continues her world domination on her Eras Tour.

And you are bound to know someone that is going to the shows, whether locally or travelling a distance to where they were able to secure the coveted tickets, which were and continue to be like gold dust.

That’s why music lovers will empathise with Kathryn Gallagher from Antrim who had been on a rollercoaster of emotions. First she managed to secure tickets to see her beloved Taylor Swift, but then had the chance of getting to one of the gigs snatched away by freak circumstances.

The 25-year-old waited in vain at the airport for seven hours before she realised the delay would mean she was going to miss the concert — and all because a bird flew into the engine of the plane on its previous flight.

Now hundreds of pounds out of pocket and no chance of compensation, it’s certainly a Cruel Summer for this music fan.
