'It's Gonna Be Forever': A Film of Taylor Swift's 1989 Tour Is Imminent

Has the conclusion of Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour left you utterly bereft? Well, be soothed: soon you will have the option to watch a video of it—if you’re an Apple Music patron, that is.


According to Pitchfork, the concert film will “stream exclusively on Apple Music beginning December 20.” (Swift announced the news on her birthday.) And should you have access to this exclusive stream, you’ll not only see Swift at the height of her glory, but also a variety of artists from her grand roster of special guests: St. Vincent, Beck, Haim, Justin Timberlake, Lorde, and a host of others.

You won’t be surprised to learn that the concert video has a trailer (posted above) because, hello, this is Taylor. It was “directed by Jonas Akerlund and filmed live in front of 76,000 fans in Sydney” — and it gives the viewer a sense of Swift’s larger goal for the tour.

“I wondered what would happen if I invited some of the most amazing artists in the world to come out with me and perform on my stage,” she says in the trailer. “Would they do it?”

LOL, she almost sounds as if she wasn’t sure.

The fact that this is coming out so soon after the tour’s end says that there was almost no time spent in post-production. Probably because so much of the show was prerecorded to begin with is my guess.
