Will The Eras Tour Concert Film be released in Australia?
Taylor Swift herself has announced the global release of the Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour Concert Film.
The initial announcement revealed showings of the film across the United States, Canada and Mexico. “The Eras Tour has been the most meaningful, electric experience of my life so far,” Taylor began her post, “I’m overjoyed to tell you that it’ll be coming to the big screen soon.”
“Starting Oct 13th you’ll be able to experience the concert film in theaters in North America! Tickets are on sale now. Eras attire, friendship bracelets, singing and dancing encouraged.”
Shortly after the initial announcement, it was revealed that more than 100 countries are also set to host screenings. “The tour isn’t the only thing we’re taking worldwide…” Taylor shared to a film poster uploaded to Instagram. “Been so excited to tell you all that The Eras Tour concert film is now officially coming to theatres WORLDWIDE on Oct 13!”
The news wasn't a complete surprise though, with many fans already convinced Taylor was set to announce an Eras Tour documentary soon, especially given the presence of film cameras on stage at the Los Angeles show on August 3rd.
This was the first show to feature a film crew on stage with Taylor, which is different to the usual crew capturing footage for the big screen at the concert venues. There were also cameras filming fans in the crowd, along with notices around the stadium alerting the audience that “filming was underway.”
Where to watch The Eras Tour Concert Film in Australia
Initially, The Eras Tour was available to watch in cinemas across Australia. Then, the film was available to rent from December 14 on Prime Video in Australia.
Now, it has been announced that Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour (Taylor’s Version) will be available to watch on Disney+ for all subscribers. On February 7, Taylor herself took to Instagram to share the announcement, revealing The Eras Tour Concert film had found a home on Disney+ and that "for the first time we’ll be showing the entire concert (including “cardigan”, plus 4 additional songs from the acoustic section!!)."
When will The Eras Tour Concert Film be released?
The movie premiered on Friday, October 13, in Australian cinemas and will be available to stream on Disney from March 15, 2024.
Will the Eras Tour Movie be on Netflix?
As we mentioned, Taylor has previously released a concert film Taylor Swift: Reputation Stadium Tour and a documentary Miss Americana through Netflix. However, in 2020 she released Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions on Disney Plus, so she’s not tied to Netflix in any set way.
What will the Eras Tour movie be about?
Before the film dropped, there were two pretty clear ways the film could go; either a straight-up concert tour film, that just consists of the live show. And, considering the show spans over three hours, with a set list of 44 songs divided into 10 distinct acts, there's a lot of ground to cover here already.
Alternatively, fans believed it could be a documentary that includes the lead-up to the main event and showcases Taylor's personal relationship to the tour and her fame, as Miss Americana did.
Or maybe... it's both? We wouldn't put it past Taylor to give her fans EVERYTHING she possibly can. Since the film has dropped, we now know the film is a concert film experience, with Event cinemas describing the project as a "cultural phenomenon...[continuing] on the big screen! Immerse yourself in this once-in-a-lifetime concert film experience with a breathtaking, cinematic view of the history-making tour."
We also know the initial running time of the film will be 2 hours and 45 minutes. The actual live tour runs for over three hours, so it appears that the film tightens up the show by a bit.
