Taylor Swift had a memorable performance during her Eras Tour stop in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on Saturday night, when she performed her entire three-and-a-half-hour set in the pouring rain.

“Last night we all danced together in the rain for THE ENTIRE 3.5 HOUR SHOW in foxy Foxborough MA!!” Swift wrote, posting a series of photos of the performance to her various social media accounts. “We’ve had rain shows at Gillette Stadium before but this was a full on deluge that never let up, I just want to thank that iconic crowd!! Love you so much you have no idea 💕🥰🥲.”

The “Lavender Haze” singer’s Saturday concert was not the first time she’s had to endure extreme weather while performing. Swift had famously performed one of her first “rain shows” at the Foxborough stadium in 2011. Her Nashville concert earlier this month, where she announced her upcoming re-release of Speak Now, was also delayed by several hours as a result of thunder and lightning.

Nonetheless, Swift took the stage at Gillette Stadium for the 12th time throughout her career to perform her 40-plus songs while putting on a show of a lifetime. The Foxborough stadium is one of Swift’s favorite venues because, in addition to her iconic “rain shows,” it was the first NFL stadium she ever headlined at.

One Swiftie, who attended the Foxborough concert, is even selling small containers of Saturday night’s rain droplets on Facebook Marketplace for a whopping $250. Other fans have, instead, taken to social media to praise the “Love Story” singer and team for putting on an incredible performance despite the unfavorable weather circumstances. “The rain poured, but the energy soared. You owned the moment, defying the elements and creating unforgettable memories. You’re unstoppable,” one fan tweeted.

“Epic @taylorswift13 performance over the weekend in an absolute monsoon,” another fan wrote. “Sat night. Massive props to her, dancers n entire crew to endure the 3.5hr torrential downpour.  Buckets of respect to Taylor as an artist and performer — 99.9% would’ve thrown in the towel…whereas she…”

However, Swift experienced some technical difficulties during her Sunday performance because the previous night’s rain had “literally broken my keyboard,” because it had been “literally underwater.” “I didn’t know how any of the instruments were working last night,” Swift added before abandoning the damaged keyboard for her guitar.
