HUGE NEWS! Taylor Swift to perform at 2019 Melbourne Cup

Securing one of the world's biggest music stars is a huge win for the Melbourne Racing Club, but not everyone is happy.

Cliffsofmoher was euthansed on the track after breaking its shoulder during a fall at last year's Melbourne Cup.

The Victorian Racing Club has announced the global superstar will perform two songs ahead of the race that stops the nation at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia on Tuesday, November 5.

Taylor Swift has been condemned by animal rights activists for agreeing to perform at Australia's Melbourne Cup horse race.

But the Coalition For The Protection of Racehorses has been quick off the mark with a campaign to ask Swift to say #NupToTheCup on social media.

Swift tours Australia for Frontier Touring, Frontier boss Michael Gudinski is the owner of Melbourne Cup 2016 and 2017 winners Almandin and Rekindling. I'd like to hear your comments (just don't write anything too mean).

"Horses are being killed for gambling profits and entertainment".

Speaking with Ash London in Paris earlier in the week, Taylor confirmed she would be Down Under sooner rather than later.

The Melbourne Cup efficiency will mark the 10-time Grammy Award-winning singer's exclusively public look in Australia following the discharge of her seventh album Lover final month.

"Why wouldn't I?" she told London during their interview.

She will only perform this one show and anybody with a General Admission ticket can get in.
