In a surprising turn of events, the release date for the highly anticipated Taylor Swift “Eras Tour” concert film has been moved from Friday to Thursday. While some Swift fans are excited about the early access showings, others are expressing frustration as they may have to purchase tickets again.
Swift announced the change on Wednesday, citing “unprecedented demand” as the reason for the schedule alteration. This news was met with mixed reactions from Swifties. Some expressed joy and excitement, praising Taylor Swift for always surprising her fans. However, there were also disappointed fans who had initially secured bragging rights as the first to see the film. They now found themselves in a predicament of having to buy new tickets to maintain their position. This left them with the challenge of figuring out what to do with the tickets they had already purchased for Friday showings.
Some commenters speculated that Swift’s decision to move the opening night was a savvy move to boost box office sales. They applauded her and her team for capitalizing on fan loyalty and generating additional revenue.
It is worth noting that theaters have already sold a significant number of seats for the film. The Hollywood Reporter predicts that the movie will have an impressive $150 million opening. The release has also benefited theater chains such as AMC and Cinemark.
To formally premiere the film, a special event took place in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, attended by Swift herself and around 2,200 lucky fans.
Overall, despite the change in release date causing some inconvenience for fans, Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” concert film is still generating immense excitement and anticipation within her dedicated fanbase.
