Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” is coming to movie theaters.
Swift announced Thursday that the concert film “Taylor Swift – The Eras Tour” will open in North American theaters Oct. 13. The theater chain AMC, anticipating high demand from Swift fans, said the film will play at least four times a day Thursday, Fridays, Saturday and Sundays at all of its U.S. locations.
“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,” Swift said on social media channels.
Prices will be higher than usual movie tickets. An adult ticket will cost $19.89 ( “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” is coming soon) and a child ticket is priced at $13.13 (seemingly a nod to her favorite number ). Advance sales began Thursday.
In an usual move, AMC is also acting as distributor for the film. (“The Eras Tour” will additionally play in other chains.) AMC said in anticipation of the announcement, it upgraded its website to handle more than five times the largest ticket buying rush it’s experienced before.
The initial U.S. leg of Swift’s “Eras Tour” wrapped Aug. 9 with the final performance in a six-show sold-out run at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. The gig marked the 53rd of “The Eras Tour” and Pollstar‘s (conservative) estimates put the gross in the neighborhood of $689 million. She will almost certainly top $1 billion during the international leg which will take her to Latin America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Earlier this month Swift announced she’ll be back on North American shores in fall 2024. Swift will play 15 shows in four cities in October and November 2024, including her only announced Canadian shows: Nov. 14-16 and 21-23 at Toronto’s Rogers Centre. Those are the final shows of the tour on what, as of now, will end up being a 20-month 117-show run that could top $1.5 billion in gross.
