With the U.S. leg of Taylor Swift's Eras Tour coming to an end, and the international shows about to begin, Swifties are now speculating that Taylor could be planning a concert film or maybe even a tour documentary...

The Eras Tour is a showcase of Taylor's incredible discography, and a celebration of the superstar reclaiming her own music. The actual show is a feat in itself too – over three hours long, with 45 songs including two surprise songs every single night.

It's her biggest and best tour yet and it's clear that a lot of thought, heart and preparation has gone into the making of it. Understandably, fans are desperate to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how it was all pulled together.

Speculation about a tour documentary – or at least a professionally filmed concert movie – is at an all time high thanks to a TikTok video that popped up on Taylor's account. Various fan-made 'A Long Time Coming' posters have also fuelled hopes about a possible doc, too.

Now, Taylor has confirmed that the Eras Tour concert film will be hitting cinemas in October 2023.

On 31st August, just days after wrapping up the first leg of her Eras Tour, Taylor confirmed that a concert film will be released in cinemas so fans can experience the 3-hour long show on the big screen.

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.

"Starting Oct 13th you’ll be able to experience the concert film in theaters in North America! Tickets are on sale. Eras attire, friendship bracelets, singing and dancing encouraged. 1, 2, 3 LGB!!!! (iykyk)"

While fans will obviously be over the moon to have the opportunity to re-live or watch the Eras Tour for the first time with the concert film, the demand for a full behind-the-scenes documentary on how she pulled it all together is also growing.

How did Taylor go about selecting the songs for the setlist? How did she decide what era to start with, and what order the rest of them would be in? What's the thought process behind which surprise songs she chooses for each night? How does she prepare before taking to the stage for over 3 hours?

The costumes, the staging, the dancers... The weather troubles! The Ticketmaster disaster! The crowds gathering outside the stadium to experience the show!

Is Unstoppable Taylor Swift on Amazon Prime Video an official Taylor Swift documentary?

In October 2023, Amazon Prime Video released a documentary called Unstoppable Taylor Swift. The synopsis reads: "Despite the very public dispute over the ownership of the music icon Taylor Swift's masters from her first six studio albums, she continues to dominate the charts with four new studio albums releasing and the re-recording of her first six albums. While Swift's careers has faced highs and lows, her constant resilience proves she is Unstoppable."

Taylor nor her team appear to have had any input in this documentary at all. It was directed by Hanna Summer and produced by Brian Aebech, and is completely unofficial.

Swifties who have already watched the doc have said that it doesn't present any new or exclusive information about Taylor or her career.

When will Taylor Swift's Eras Tour concert film be released?

The Eras Tour concert film is in cinemas now and will remain in cinemas for 13 weeks after the movie's opening. (Check your local cinema listings to be sure it's still playing in your area.)

Fans can purchase tickets now to watch the concert film at participating Theatres.

When will Taylor Swift's Eras Tour concert film be available to watch online?

There's currently no confirmation that the Eras Tour concert film will be put on any streaming services. Right now, it is a theatrical release.

That said, the Reputation Stadium Tour concert film ended up on Netflix. It's possible that the concert film will eventually make its way onto one of the streaming services at the end of the entire Eras Tour era.

At time of last update, the final tour date for The Eras Tour is in Toronto, Canada on November 23rd 2024.
