The film follows Taylor’s second performance at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on her record-breaking fifth headlining concert tour, the “reputation Stadium Tour“. The premise? A dazzling rise to fame. A toxic cycle of tabloid rumors. And one tour to set the record straight. Are you ready for it…?
In 2018, Taylor began a stadium tour in support of her sixth studio album, reputation (2017). It was a wildly successful jaunt, and, on its final night, in Arlington, Texas, more than a hundred thousand people filled AT&T Stadium to watch her perform. The two-hour show was filmed for a Netflix special and released on New Year’s Eve. If it has been a while since you witnessed that many human beings gripped by complete and utter joy, Taylor Swift: reputation Soncert Tour is a quick fix. Even through a screen, the heady, collective love between Taylor and her fans is palpable.


The concert was filmed on the last day of the North American leg of the tour. On December 13, 2018, her 29th birthday, Taylor announced the concert film on her social media platforms. She wrote:

«Thanks so much for all the birthday wishes! Today I finally get to show you something we’ve been working on for a while…the trailer for the Reputation Stadium Tour! The entire concert film will premiere on Netflix at 12:01AM PST December 31. You made this tour so insanely fun for all of us on stage, and I’m really excited that we will have this memento of the memories we all made together this year. I also got to share the stage with such wildly talented people Camila Cabello, Charli XCX, my band and dancers who shine so brightly in this film. You’re the best. Thank you for everything.»

Critical Reception

The film received widespread critical acclaim upon release, with many critics labeling the film as “immortalizing” and “unforgettable”. The commentators praised the camerawork from director Paul Dugdale for documenting Taylor’s “stardom”, the crowd’s emotions and the production involved in the concert. Rolling Stone‘s Rob Sheffield wrote that the film “immortalizes her best tour yet” and that the film shows off “the stadium-rocking spectacle without toning down any of her songs’ one-on-one emotional intimacy”. Describing the Netflix special as “the end of an era”, Amanda Petrusich of The New Yorker opined that the film “will soon either be regarded as a museum piece or as a testament to Swift’s era-defying longevity”.
