Taylor Swift announces concert movie headed to theaters

 September 1, 2023

On Thursday, pop star Taylor Swift shared the news with her vast fanbase that her concert movie titled Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour will be hitting theaters in the near future.

Due to anticipated high demand, movie theaters are already alerting fans about potential delays in ticket purchases, as the Daily Wire reported.

Swift's Enthusiastic Announcement

The 33-year-old music sensation conveyed her enthusiasm about the project on platform X.

She wrote "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."

Beginning Oct. 13, North American theaters will showcase the film, Swift revealed.

She added, "Tickets are on sale now…. Eras attire, friendship bracelets, singing and dancing encouraged 1, 2, 3 LGB (iykyk)."

Swift's announcement also provided a direct link for her fans to secure their tickets. Her announcement was accompanied by a one-minute snippet showcasing glimpses from her packed concerts over the last few months.

AMC Braces for Swift Surge

Recalling the overwhelming digital traffic when "Eras Tour" tickets initially launched in 2022 – which even led to the Ticketmaster platform crashing – AMC Theaters made it clear they were preparing for a potential influx.

The theater company released a statement recognizing the unparalleled enthusiasm Swift commands from her audience whenever tickets are up for grabs.

"AMC is also aware that no ticketing system in history seems to have been able to accommodate the soaring demand from Taylor Swift fans when tickets are first placed on sale," the statement said.

The statement further cautioned that guests aiming to buy online tickets could face delays or experience unusually extended ticketing queue times.

The company explains that there might even be brief system outages in extreme cases. However, AMC reassured its patrons, asserting their dedication to promptly addressing any such issues that arise.

Ticket Details

By Thursday evening, enthusiasts shared screenshots of their seating charts and online waitlists on social platforms.

For those looking to catch the concert film, adult tickets are priced at $19.89, while tickets for children are available for $13.13.

Swift's Legacy of Tour Films

Swift has a history of releasing films chronicling her tours, including one detailing the 2009-2010 Fearless Tour, the 1989 World Tour (in 2015), and the Reputation Stadium Tour (in 2018), the Washington Post reported.

However, these movies were launched after the completion of their respective tours. In a departure from this trend, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour is set to premiere before Swift kicks off the next leg of her current tour in November.

This tour will launch in Argentina, then move across a range of international venues, ultimately concluding in the United States and Canada by November of next year.
