Concert film[]

The 1989 World Tour Live, a 2015 concert film by Taylor Swift is released on December 20, 2015, exclusively via Apple Music. Directed by Jonas Åkerlund, the film follows the Sydney stop of the Australian leg of Swift's fourth headlining concert tour, The 1989 World Tour. The show, attended by 75,980 fans, is one of the most attended concerts ever to date for a solo artist, most notably, Swift .

Signs were displayed at the sold out Sydney concert on November 28, 2015, at the ANZ Stadium which said "Today's events are being recorded and filmed for global streaming, and may also form part of a television program... for commercial and promotional purposes."

Although there was no further information about what the filming was for at the time, there was speculation that it would form a DVD of the 1989 World Tour to be released once the tour concluded its run in Melbourne in late 2015. Later speculation involved an Apple Music Video launch, which was proved to be correct.

As such, "All You Had to Do Was Stay" and "This Love" were added back to the show after having been left off the set list for several months, making the Sydney setlist identical to look a lot like Tokyo when the tour premiered.

On December 13, 2015 — Swift's 26th birthday—she announced she had partnered with Apple Music to release a concert film entitled The 1989 World Tour Live in one weeks' time. It contains over two hours of concert, interview, and never-before seen backstage and rehearsal footage with some of the musical and surprise guests from previous shows.

Celebrities making appearances in the film include Mick Jagger, Jason Derulo, Idina Menzel, Justin Timberlake, Wiz Khalifa, and Alanis Morissette. It was directed by Jonas Åkerlund.

Clips from the film were later compiled for the music video for the seventh and final single from the album, "New Romantics".

Stage[]

The custom stage built for the 1989 Tour is one-of-a-kind. It was a classic catwalk shape that's 100 ft long but the center part could detach from the main catwalk. It a was semi-modular type design able to rise up and do a 360° turn, it permitted to get closer to fans, the technology was like a propeller system.
