As of October 23rd, 2023, Taylor Swift holds the coveted positions of having the number one song, “Cruel Summer,” and the top movie in the United States with her concert film, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour.” This dual triumph solidifies her undeniable influence in the entertainment industry.
The documentary showcasing Swift’s record-breaking Eras global concert tour has managed to recreate the communal thrill of live concerts for her devoted fans. Its limited theatrical run aimed to maintain a crowd capacity akin to a live concert experience. However, for those eager to relive The Eras Tour at their convenience, details regarding the concert movie’s availability for home viewing have surfaced.
Taylor Swift recently announced via Twitter that The Eras Tour will soon be accessible on Video on Demand (VOD) for home viewing. Marked for release on December 13th, 2023, coinciding with her 34th birthday, this release is set to delight her fans, offering an extended celebration.
The VOD edition promises additional content not featured in the theatrical version, including previously omitted setlist songs such as “Long Live,” “The Archer,” and “Wildest Dreams.” While “Cardigan” hasn’t been confirmed for inclusion, Swift’s tendency to surprise suggests potential hidden gems in the movie release.
For Swift enthusiasts eager to access the concert film, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour will be purchasable on major movie streaming platforms supporting in-app purchases. These platforms encompass Amazon Prime, Google Play, YouTube, Vudu, and more. However, it’s important to note that presently, the film is available for rental only, lacking the option for permanent purchase or physical formats like DVDs or Blu-rays. Yet, this may change in the future, as films initially available for rent often undergo revisions.
Despite its availability for home viewing, there hasn’t been any indication of the film’s removal from cinemas. Given its limited weekend screenings, sustained audience interest could persist, especially considering the immersive audience experience reminiscent of live concerts. This communal allure might motivate audiences to revisit theaters despite having access to the film at home.
Swift’s dual domination with her song and movie emphasizes her widespread impact, and the upcoming release of The Eras Tour on VOD promises an extended celebration for her dedicated fanbase, showcasing her continued evolution as a multifaceted artist.
