Advance ticket sales for Taylor Swift tour film exceed $100m

Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour concert film is a box office hit a week before its release.

AMC, its distributor, claims global advance ticket sales have reached $100m (£82m) and demand “has been incredible from the moment it was first announced.”

The movie broke its one-day sales record in less than 24 hours, according to the company.

It’s the most lucrative concert film ever, surpassing Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never.

In 2011, the Canadian singer’s documentary-live performance film made $99m (£81m).

Swift’s global tour, which runs through late 2024, could be the biggest ever.

Stadion ticket sales could surpass $1.4bn, breaking Elton John’s farewell tour record.

The Eras tour film will be released in over 100 countries next Friday.

In addition to advance ticket purchases, analysts expect the picture to earn $100m in North America on its opening weekend.

Five films, including Barbie, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, grossed over $100m in North America this year.

Beyonce’s Renaissance tour movie will be distributed by AMC in December.

Swift had songs in every top 10 US singles chart spot last year, a first.

In September 2021, she broke Drake’s record of nine top-10 songs. The Beatles had the record with eight top-10 singles in 1964.

Swift became Spotify’s first female artist with 100 million monthly listeners in August.

She announced the news after her third re-recorded album, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), topped US and UK charts in July.

Swift will release 1989 (Taylor’s Version) later this month. Her earlier albums are being re-recorded so she may possess the songs’ original recordings.
