Taylor Swift may have canceled her Lover Fest tour due to the coronavirus pandemic, but she’s still giving fans something to celebrate this month. ABC will air a concert special next weekend called “City of Lover.”
Taylor performed the concert last September in Paris to mark the release of her latest album Lover. Now fans will be able to enjoy the never-before-seen footage from the comfort of their homes.
Taylor Swift Announces New Concert Special
The concert will air on ABC at 10 pm ET on Sunday, May 19, after the American Idol season finale. If you miss it when it first airs, don’t worry. The special will also be available on Hulu and Disney+ the next day, so you can watch it whenever you want.
This is the first concert Taylor has performed for her new album, so it’s an exciting moment for fans. According to the trailer, the special will also feature behind-the-scenes moments from Taylor’s time in Paris.
The concert was performed at the historic L’Olympia Theater, and contest winners from 37 countries were flown in to enjoy the performance. Variety notes that the special probably won’t feature the entire concert, as it was 76 minutes long. But it’s still an exciting moment for fans eager to get a better glimpse of the show.
Twitter Reacts To Taylor’s Concert Special Announcement
Fans were obviously excited to learn the news of Taylor’s upcoming concert special. One Twitter user said she would watch the show “in full concert attire,” showing off her tiara and light wand.
Other fans were excited that the concert will be available on Disney+ the next day, wondering if this officially makes Taylor a Disney Princess.
Some fans were also excited to speculate about the song choices for the concert. Some shared the set list, which features songs from Lover including “The Archer” and “Death by a Thousand Cuts.” Taylor also apparently performed older tracks like “Love Story” and “All Too Well.”
Taylor isn’t the only artist giving her fans an at-home concert during quarantine. K-pop group BTS recently made several concerts available for fans to live stream online. It’s a great way for the fandom to come together and celebrate their favorite artist safety.
