An extended version of the film will start streaming on March 15th
Taylor Swift has partnered with Disney for the exclusive streaming rights to her blockbuster Eras Tour concert film. Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour (Taylor’s Version) will begin streaming on Disney+ on March 15th, Disney CEO Bob Iger shared on an earnings conference call. The new version features “Cardigan” and four additional songs from the acoustic portion of the concerts taken from her multi-night stand in LA’s SoFi Stadium in August of 2023.
In making the announcement Disney CEO Bob Iger said, “The Eras Tour has been a true phenomenon that has and continues to thrill fans around the world, and we are very excited to bring this electrifying concert to audiences wherever they are, exclusively on Disney+.”
“This week is truly the best kind of chaos. I’m thrilled to let you know I’ve found a streaming home for The Eras Tour Concert Film, and that home will be @disneyplus. For the first time we’ll be showing the entire concert (including “cardigan”, plus 4 additional songs from the acoustic section!!) and I’m calling it, huge shock, Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour (Taylor’s Version). Available starting March 15 which is actually very [soon],” Swift shares on social media.
Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour concert film is officially the highest-grossing film in box office history among concert films and documentary films after raking in more than $260 million. Swift bypassed major studios and worked directly with AMC to distribute the film last fall.
It took less than 24 hours for the Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour to shatter AMC’s US record for the highest ticket sales revenue during a single day in AMC’s 103-year history. Advanced ticket sales were strong across the United States, from the largest cities to the smallest towns, and are particularly strong in premium large-screen formats like IMAX, Dolby Cinema, Prime at AMC, and other branded premium experiences.
The 53-date North American leg of the tour was attended by more than three million Taylor Swift fans. Not only did it shatter all concert sales records, but it also left tens of millions of adoring fans wanting more, either because they attended the concert and wanted to see it again, or after being unable to obtain tickets for sold out performance after sold out performance.
Last month, the pop star released an extended version to digital outlets featuring three additional songs not available in theaters.
The tour is expected to gross $2 million by the time it wraps with a second North American leg of 17 dates in November 2024. The trek makes Swift the highest-grossing female artist and The Eras Tour the largest-ever grossing tour in US history.
On Sunday, Swift made Grammy history after being awarded the top honor of the night. Celine Dion surprised the audience by presenting the award for Album of the Year, which went to Swift for Midnights. The feat marks the first time an artist has won Album of the Year four times. Swift also took home the award for Best Pop Vocal Album for Midnights, which she celebrated by announcing her 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, is coming in April.
