At Taylor Swift’s last Eras Tour show in Los Angeles, fans were thrilled with an unexpected surprise.
During the acoustic segment of the concert, the pop icon, who had been wearing new costumes in different shades of blue (the color scheme of her 2014 album 1989) throughout the night, revealed that she would be releasing a re-issue of her first Grammy-winning pop album on October 27th.
“Since I was a teenager, I wanted to own my music,” Swift announced onstage. “The way to do it was to re-record my albums, and the way that you have embraced … that you have celebrated, that you really decided that it was your fight too, and that you were 100 percent behind me … I will never stop thanking you for that.”
“And so now, here we are on the last night of the U.S. leg of the Eras tour in the eighth month of the year on the ninth day. You might have noticed there are some new outfits in the show. There’s something that I’ve been planning for a really, really, really ridiculously, embarrassingly long time, and instead of telling you about it, I think I’ll just sort of show you,” Swift told concert-goers as she unveiled the cover art and release date for 1989 (Taylor’s Version) on the big screen.
The news led to an eight-minute standing ovation from the die-hard Swifties!
“The 1989 album changed my life in countless ways, and it fills me with such excitement to announce that my version of it will be out October 27th,” Swift shared on Instagram after her concert announcement. “To be perfectly honest, this is my most FAVORITE re-record I’ve ever done because the 5 From The Vault tracks are so insane. I can’t believe they were ever left behind. But not for long!”
