- Taylor Swift’s hugely successful ‘Eras Tour’ film is headed to Disney+.
- It’ll include five songs not heard on previous versions.
- The movie will start streaming exclusively on the service from next month.
It might not feature a 13 anywhere, but Taylor Swift has still found an impactful date for the news to break that her ‘Eras Tour’ concert film has found a new permanent home on streaming.
Actually, it’s more Disney’s schedule than Swift, since the entertainment behemoth used the day of its investors’ earning call to announce that ‘The Eras Tour’ will be streaming exclusively on Disney+ from next month.
Still, it marks the same day that Swift re-starts the tour, this time in Japan.
What was The Eras Tour?
It’s more accurate to say, “what *is* The Eras Tour?” given that it’s continuing around the world.
After kicking off last year on March 17th in Glendale Arizona and taking in huge chunks of the States, the tour wrapped up its 2023 run in São Paulo, Brazil on November 26th.
According to data from live music trade publication Pollstar, the tour has become the highest-grossing concert tour in history, becoming the first ever to make $1 billion. So successful was it that it earned more than the next two-highest ranked tours of the time combined (that would be Beyonce and Bruce Springsteen).
The previous record holder was Elton John’s ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ tour, which took years to accomplish that. So it’s less “goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and more, “Goodbye Elton John”…
As for the movie, it has also been a big hit for Swift, earning $261.1 million worldwide since its release in theaters on October 13th last year. The singer-songwriter chose to bypass the studios for the theatrical release, striking a deal with theatre chain AMC that saw her pocket more of the profit.

What will be new for the Disney+ release of ‘Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour’?
The new, Disney+ cut of the movie will feature five songs that didn’t show up in either the theatrical or video on demand release. We already know that “Cardigan” is one of them, but all involved are staying quiet as to the others.
It’ll likely prove a boost for Disney’s streaming service, which saw a 1.3 million subscriber loss after it raised prices in the last year.
Here’s what Disney boss Bob Iger had to say about the new release:
“‘The Eras Tour’ has been a true phenomenon that has and continues to thrill fans around the world, and we are very excited to bring this electrifying concert to audiences wherever they are, exclusively on Disney+.”
When will ‘Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour’ land on Disney+
Swifties (and anyone else who is interested) will be able to see the movie on Disney+ from March 15th.
