Taylor Swift has gone and done it. The superstar singer-songwriter, who is performing all 10 of her studio albums’ so-called ‘Eras’ in one concert, has created a movie out of the experience, which will be available to view in Australia from October 13.

“The Eras Tour has been the most meaningful, electric experience of my life so far and I’m overjoyed to tell you that it’ll be coming to the big screen soon,” she shared on Instagram.

“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. 1, 2, 3 LGB!!!! (iykyk).”

Of course, this news has made many Swifties who missed out on tickets to the sold-out shows ecstatic; they may get to experience a front-row seat to the Eras Tour after all, albeit, not live.

While announcing the concert film, Swift took the opportunity to laugh at a few ‘in jokes’ with her fans, including the ‘friendship bracelets’ fans are making while attending the show, based off one lyric in her Midnights song ‘You’re On Your Own Kid’ and the ‘123LGB’, referring to the “One, two, three…let’s go b*tch,” phrase that fans yell at the start of ‘Delicate’ from her Reputation album.

Naturally, demand to see the Eras Tour is extremely high, so it’s expected that demand to go and see the Eras Tour movie will also be through the roof, with fans that have already seen the show first hand expected to still buy tickets (so they can relive this almost ‘godly’ experience).

With rumours that many Swifties were leaving the Eras stadium with post-concert ‘amnesia’, this tour film is surely the antidote to stoke up those excitement-blanketed memories.

SAG-AFTRA Approved Taylor Swift’s Concert Film Because She Actually Paid People Properly

We all know the fights Taylor Swift has had with the music industry to ensure that creatives get proper pay and credit for the work they put out. So, when approaching the Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour Swift she decided to make sure she did it the right way. 

Swift reportedly met all of SAG-AFTRA’s demands, purposely working around the major producers that are represented by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTMP) and instead funding the whole project herself. According to Puck News, Swift spent between $10 million and $20 million to produce the film, through her own company Taylor Swift Productions, and went straight to AMC Theatres to streamline the distribution process. 

Swift also met with SAG-AFTRA to firm up an ‘interim agreement’, which would allow her to shoot and produce the Eras Tour film during her Los Angeles shows at SoFi Stadium. She was given permission, by meeting demands like offering proper salaries for crew members and also generous residuals (the money that people make off the back of streaming). 

“She came to us and said she wanted to do this, but only if she could do it the right way under a union contract,” SAG-AFTRA’s executive director and chief negotiator Duncan Crabtree-Ireland at Toronto Independent Film Festival. “And we said, that’s great. And so she fulfilled all the same criteria as anybody else and has an interim agreement for that production.”

While the fanfare around the anticipated concert film is at fever pitch, it will only make fans love her even more to know that she did so in a way that respected the team that made it happen.

How Much Demand Is There Globally For Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour?

The demand for this film is so high that American movie chain AMC has said they’ll show the film at least four times a day on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. We have to ask the question – will this meet (or even, exceed) the demand for the ‘Barbie’ movie?

AMC did state that it has upgraded its movie-ticketing service to handle “more than five times the largest influx of ticket-buying traffic the company has ever experienced before.”

They add, “But AMC is also aware that no ticketing system in history seems to have been able to accommodate the soaring demand from Taylor Swift fans.”

If you want to break records (and systems), just call the Swifties.

The news of the Eras Tour film is also music to the ears of Swifties who may not have been able to afford to attend the concert itself, with movie tickets a far cry from the prices of floor seats, going for thousands of dollars for just one seat.

The film is also expected to be another financial ‘feather in the cap’ for Swift, whose 146-date stadium tour is expected to be the first billion-dollar tour. The current record belongs to Elton John’s ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour, which has been going since 2018 and has made just over $900 million.

The power of Taylor Swift’s fans cannot be understated, with the release of the sequel to The Exorcist delayed just hours after Swift let fans in on her next big project.

“Look what you made me do. The Exorcist: Believer moves to 10/6/23 #TaylorWins,” producer Jason Blum shared to X, formerly known as Twitter.

Swift has many highlights still ahead of her, including a stint performing the tour in Australia in February. In the meantime, fans are enjoying watching the Eras Tour from TikTok and embracing their ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)’ era. She is set to drop ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version) on October 27, 2023.
