Singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is now embarking on the Latin American leg of “The Eras Tour.” In the meantime, she is releasing a concert film.
“The Eras Tour” encompasses a three hour set of songs from all ten of Swift’s studio albums, complete with costume changes, backup dancers, a live band, and unique backdrop sets for each album’s section. The high energy and multi-genre spanning show has been widely praised by concertgoers and critics alike.
The film will feature footage from the exclusive live shows. Fans were enchanted at the news, given the difficulties associated with obtaining tickets to the tour. Ticketmaster notoriously is now under investigation after botched presale codes, queue issues, dynamic pricing, and surging fees prevented fans from attending one of Swift’s concerts.
Live Nation joined forces with the ticketing conglomerate several years ago, and now the U.S. Senate is looking to separate the two ahead of 2025, when the companies had initially negotiated a contract to remain united. Today, a line already formed on AMC and Fandango’s respective websites in order to obtain tickets, with many fearing that they could be locked out yet again.

Many fans felt that they had seen this film before, and did not like the ending. Luckily, many appeared successful in obtaining tickets to their local theaters on opening weekend. Some lucky concertgoers are excited to remember their favorite show all too well now that it will be memorialized on video.

The film has not yet been confirmed for an international release. While Swift will be touring in numerous regions of the world, several countries are yet to host a Swift concert. These include India, the Philippines, and more.
TAYLOR PLEASE RELEASE THIS GLOBALLY

Elsewhere, fans who planned album corresponding concert outfits but were unable to attend a show look forward to trading friendship bracelets at the theater. Some dedicated fans even showed up to their local venues to watch the show from the parking lot. Amid surging AMC lines, some already vow to do the same for the concert film.

The singer’s next tour stop will be in November in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The tour will continue into parts of East Asia and Europe, before returning to the U.S. next year.
Among Swift’s openers on tour are Gracie Abrams, GAYLE, Phoebe Bridgers, Haim, Sabrina Carpenter, and more. It is unclear whether the film will document their journeys as well, or include behind-the-scenes footage. Regardless, fans are living for the hope of it all to grab tickets. The film hits theaters October 13.
