As her world tour promoting the 2014 album “1989” came to an end this month, Taylor Swift has announced a collaboration with Apple that will see her new concert movie, “The 1989 World Tour LIVE,” streamed exclusively on Apple Music. The film will be available on December 20.
Filmed at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney, Australia, during one leg of Swift’s world tour, the “1989” film include’s Swift’s entire performance on the night of November 28 — which includes guest performances — plus “never before seen footage filmed backstage.” The singer was known for surprising fans with big-name cameos during the 1989 World Tour, and the Sydney show was no different, including artists like Alanis Morissette, Steven Tyler, and Wiz Khalifa.
Swift and Apple Music had an initially rocky relationship, beginning with the announcement of Apple Music’s three-month free trial, which would have seen artists go unpaid for the trial period while users streamed their songs an unlimited amount of times without paying them anything. Swift wrote down her opinion on the matter in an open letter to Apple, subsequently inspiring the Cupertino company to reverse course on the decision and ultimately bringing 1989 to the streaming service over the summer.
Apple’s decision persuaded Swift to allow the “1989” album to be streamed on Apple Music, giving the service an advantage over rivals like Spotify. You can watch the trailer for Swift’s “1989” movie below.
When the movie becomes available on December 20, you’ll be able to watch it on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch; on Mac and PC through iTunes, and on your Apple TV. Swift will also appear on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe at 9 a.m. PST today to talk about it.
