Swifties in Hong Kong who want to celebrate Taylor Swift’s birthday can attend showings of The Eras Tour concert film at two cinemas in the city. Tsim Sha Tsui theatre K11 Arthouse and Movie Town in New City Plaza will screen the film at 7pm on December 13, which is the Grammy-winning singer’s birthday. There will also be two more shows of the film at 2.15pm on December 16 and 17 at K11 Arthouse.
Tickets for the 168-minute-long film will be priced at HK$131 — a nod to Swift’s lucky number, 13. The film will only be shown in 2D, unlike its previous November showings in Hong Kong, when it was also screened in IMAX. The singer has also encouraged fans to wear friendship bracelets and Eras outfits to screenings of the film, which has so far taken in US$250 million (HK$1.95 billion) at the box office — the highest ever for a concert film.
Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour Film will also be available to stream in the US and Canada from December 13, with three performances that are not included in the theatrical release: Wildest Dreams, The Archer, and Long Live. Swift has said that more countries will be added to the film’s streaming list.
The Grammy-winning singer was also declared Time’s Person of the Year for 2023, making her the first person from the arts world to receive the title for her work as an entertainer. She played 66 concerts across the Americas over the past year as part of The Eras Tour, which is forecast to become the biggest-selling tour of all time and the first to make over US$1 billion as it continues on its 2024 leg across Asia, Australia, and Europe.
December will also see the Hong Kong release of Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé, which will bring singer Beyoncé Knowles’s career-defining world tour to cinema screens from December 21-31. The tour, which spanned between May and October 2023, is currently the highest-grossing tour by a female artist in history.
