Taylor Swift announced Monday morning that her “Eras Tour” film will be released for streaming on her birthday, Dec. 13 — and that, as hoped by fans, it will include songs from the tour not included in the movie’s theatrical release.

“Well, so, basically I have a birthday coming up and I was thinking a fun way to celebrate the year we’ve had together would be to make The Eras Tour Concert Film available for you to watch at home!” she wrote on her social media accounts. “Very happy to be able to tell you that the extended version of the film including ‘Wildest Dreams,’ ‘The Archer’ and ‘Long Live’ will be available to rent on demand in the US, Canada & additional countries to be announced soon starting on … you guessed it, December 13.”

The announcement came the morning after Swift performed the final date of her tour for 2023 Sunday night in Brazil. Fans were hoping for an announcement at the concert — they even chanted the title “Reputation” at the Brazil shows, in hopes of getting a reveal that “Reputation (Taylor’s Version)” might be on the way — but no fresh album news was forthcoming at the show. Any disappointment along those lines may be ameliorated for Swifties with the news that they can watch the “Eras Tour” endlessly at home over the holidays.

Although she has yet to reveal which international territories will or won’t get the streaming release, the caveat may take into account that only the Americas have been visited by the tour so far, and that more than half of it is still to go in other countries around the world in 2024.

The services whose logos appear on Swift’s website as making the film available for rental Dec. 13 are Apple TV, Vudu, Prime Video, Xfinity, Google Play and YouTube.

The omission of several songs from the tour’s setlist was a source of consternation for some completist fans when the film opened in October, although many correctly guessed that the 2-hours-45-minutes film would get an expansion when the movie became available for home viewing. Even with “Wildest Dreams,” “The Archer” and “Long Live” added, though, it still won’t include every song Swift performed on most or many of the tour dates. The nightly “Cardigan” is the only set standby still apparently unaccounted for; “No Body No Crime,” which did not figure into the entire tour but was performed by Swift with Haim at the shows in August that were filmed at L.A.’s SoFi Stadium, will also remain MIA.

Swift is on a roll on both the film and recorded music fronts, on top of a tour that some have estimated will gross a record-breaking $2 billion by the time it comes to a close (as currently scheduled) next November.

The film has grossed $178 million in the United States, as of the close of this past weekend, setting a record for a concert film many times over.

Meanwhile, “1989 (Taylor’s Version),” the latest in her series of album re-recordings, achieved the best first-week numbers in her career, with an opening figure of 1.6 million album-equivalent units, the best for any album in eight years. She also enjoyed the feat of back-to-back No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Cruel Summer,” a four-year-old song that got a new lease on life, being succeeded at the top by “Is It Over Now?,” a newly recorded Vault track added as a bonus to the “1989” remake.

The Eras Tour resumes Feb. 7 with a four-night stand at the Tokyo Dome in Japan.
