Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Astros won’t have to worry about angering thousands of Taylor Swift fans by cancelling her concert if they make the postseason for the first time in a decade. It was announced that Swift’s concert at Minute Maid Park will move from October 9th to September 9th to avoid any conflict for both parties.
And press release by the Astros said that the 1989 World Tour for Taylor was moved as: “Astros proactively prepare for potential postseason play, we are committed to ensuring Taylor Swift fans can experience this concert at Minute Maid Park, with as much notice as possible.”
The Astros currently sit one game back of the Los Angeles Angles of Anaheim in the AL West and currently lead the Wild Card by two games. The team currently has an 82% chance of making the postseason.
Original tickets to the October 9th date will still be valid for the new date on September 9th, and refunds are available if the new date does not work for any fan trying to make the game.
