Taylor Swift concert chronology

The 1989 World Tour was the fourth concert tour by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, in support of her fifth studio album, 1989 (2014). The tour's European and North American dates, as well as two shows in Japan, were announced in November 2014, followed by the Oceania dates in December 2014. Additional dates for Singapore and Shanghai were announced in June 2015 with a third and final Melbourne show announced in July 2015, the tour began on May 5, 2015, in Tokyo, Japan and concluded on December 12, 2015 in Melbourne, Australia, the day before her 26th birthday. The tour became Swift's highest grossing and most attended tour to date, mobilizing 2,278,647 fans and $250,733,097 revenue, it was the highest grossing tour in the world in 2015.[1]

On December 13, 2015, Swift announced that she had partnered with Apple Music to release a concert film entitled The 1989 World Tour Live on December 20, it was filmed at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on November 28 with 75,980 attendees.

Background and development[edit]

The tour was announced via Swift's Twitter on November 3, 2014 in which Swift said: "#The1989WorldTour is happening!" before giving a link to her website where fans could find out the list of dates. It was also revealed that Vance Joy would be joining Swift on tour, and that tickets would go sale on for North American fans on November 14.[2]

In an interview with Time Magazine, Swift said that "the setlist will be predominantly songs from 1989. [...] I have so many things I've been dreaming up for this. If you look at the makeup of my previous music, as far as production elements go, there are a lot of live drums, acoustic guitars, electric guitars, and live bass. And if you look at the landscape of 1989, it's mostly synths and automated drums and these kind of big epic synth pad sounds, and key bass, and layered vocals. I have a very big band, there are, what, 14 of us, so what you’re going to end up with is more of a live feel in that it's going to be filled in and more dramatic with more layers to it, but never to the point where it's going to feel noisy or overcrowded."[3]

Swift also acknowledged the challenge of playing to stadiums, stating that "the challenge with a stadium show is making those people in the very top row feel like they got an intimate, personal experience."[3] The following month in an interview with KIIS-FM, she revealed that she knew what the stage would look like, as well as knowing that "all the fans seem to be saying that they really don't want any song [from 1989] left off the setlist".[4]

The tour took seven months to plan before three months of music rehearsals, four weeks of stage rehearsals and ten days of two-a-days dress rehearsals,[5] it traveled with 26 semi-trailer trucks and 11 buses carrying 146 people from city to city. Additionally, about 125–150 people were hired in each city to help with the load in and stage setup, the entire load in and stage setup process took between 6 and 8 hours for arenas, with stadiums requiring an additional day. Many of the traveling crew members had worked on Swift's tours since the Fearless era.[6] Swift chose two designs for the trucks' vinyl wrap; 13 carry one design and 13 have the other.[7]

Filming[edit]

Signs were displayed at the sold out Sydney concert on November 28, 2015 at 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 concludes its run in Melbourne in late 2015. Later speculation involved an Apple Music Video launch, which was proved to be correct. Coincidentally, "All You Had To Do Was Stay" and "This Love" were added back into the show after having been left off the set list for several months, this makes the Sydney setlist identical to that of Tokyo when the tour premiered.[8]

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 on December 20. Filmed in front of 75,980 fans during her stop at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on November 28, it shows the entire performance and never-before seen footage from backstage and from rehearsals with some of the musical and surprise guests from previous shows.[9]

Commercial reception[edit]

Ticket sales[edit]

Pre-sales for European shows started on November 4, public on-sale for this leg started on November 7, tickets for London were sold later on November 10. First round of pre-sales on select North American shows start on November 7 and general sales for fans in North America started from November 14, 2014; Australia started from December 12, 2014; Japan started from December 13, 2014; Singapore and Shanghai started from June 30, 2015. Swift was the sixth most-searched artist on Ticketmaster in 2014.[10]

Sellout status occurred in many cities when general sales for the tour started. Swift announced 9 extra dates as well as the new show in Houston for North American leg. Los Angeles had the most extra dates with 3 shows at Staples Center, cities which had one extra date were East Rutherford, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, St. Paul, Santa Clara; in St. Louis, Swift was originally performing on October 13 and 14, 2015, but after adding Houston to the schedule, St. Louis shows downsize from two to one and she would play in this city only on September 28, 2015 and tickets go on sale at 10 am on January 30, 2015.[11] However, tickets for St. Louis show was sold out within minutes, this resulted in a second date being added there on September 29 at the same venue.[12] Swift also added more dates to European leg due to vast popularity, one for Cologne and one for Dublin;[13] in Dublin, tickets for both concert sold out within 55 minutes although the second show was just added after 6 minutes when the first show was sold out.[14]

In Australia, over 30,000 tickets for the first show (December 11, 2015) in Melbourne was sold out less than an hour.[15] Soon after, Swift announced 2 extra dates for this leg, one for Melbourne and one for Adelaide.[16] Due to popular demand, in July 2015, Swift added the third show for Melbourne after 2 first shows were sold out and became the first female artist to play 3 shows at AAMI Park.[17]
