The concert film of Swift’s ongoing world tour, which has also broken multiple records, was made available on Disney+ on 14 March. See the official trailer for the film below.

As per The Hollywood Reporter, the film was viewed for a collective 16.2million hours in its opening weekend, surpassing viewership of music films from Elton John, Beyoncé and The Beatles.

Expanded from its original theatrical release back in October, the three-and-a-half-hour long film features songs previously cut from the original version, including ‘Cardigan’ and ‘Long Live’.

The Disney+ edition also features performances of some of Swift’s iconic surprise songs, which she changes for each night on the tour. Viewers can now stream on-demand her performances of ‘Maroon,’ ‘Death By A Thousand Cuts’ and more.

Upon the film’s release in cinemas last year, it quickly became the highest-grossing concert film of all time, making a total $261million (£206million) at the box-office.

It was nominated for several accolades, including a Critics’ Choice Documentary Award nomination and Golden Globe nomination for Cinematic and Box Office Achievement.

Swift recently reached the one-year mark of her global tour, which began in Glendale, Arizona last March, having just finished a six-night run in Singapore. She’ll resume with the European leg of the monumental tour in May, kicking off with a show at LA Défense Arena in Paris, where she’ll be supported by Paramore.

In the meantime, Swift has a brand new album, ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ coming out on April 19, which she announced at the Grammys earlier this year.
