Nine days after Anna’s death, her family was invited to a concert by the star. The deceased fan’s five loved ones watched the show from the VIP tent. They wore matching T-shirts with Anna’s face on them. After the concert, they were allowed backstage, where they posed for a photo with Swift. This snapshot has now gone viral on social media.
On November 17, Anna was front and center at Taylor’s concert. Just before the show began, the young woman became ill. She was revived, but to no avail. In addition, a thousand fans passed out during the concert. Many complained that water was not allowed to enter, while the country was being ravaged by a severe heat wave. The feeling temperature in the stadium was at least 58.5 degrees. Flavio Dino, the Brazilian Minister of Justice, launched an investigation into the fan’s death. “It is unacceptable for people to suffer, faint and even die due to lack of access to water,” he said.
In an interview with a Spanish newspaper, Anna’s father spoke about the loss of his daughter. “She left for a dream, a Taylor Swift concert, but she never came back. I lost my only daughter, a happy girl. She was about to graduate in psychology in April. I have no words to express my pain,” he said emotionally.

Swift said she was devastated by the news. “I can’t believe I’m writing these words, but it is with a broken heart to say that we lost a fan earlier the night before my show,” she said on Instagram at the time. “I can’t even tell you how sad I am about this. I have little information, except that she was very beautiful and very young, too.
The “Cruel Summer” singer stated that she will not be able to talk about Benevides Machado during her concerts. “I can’t talk about this from the stage because I feel sad when I even try to talk about it. I want to say now that I feel this loss deeply and my heart goes out to her family and friends.
