At 9 AM PT / Noon ET / 5 PM UK today, Taylor Swift will be talking with DJ Zane Lowe on Apple's Beats 1 radio show. The music star is partnering with Apple to provide a concert video of her 1989 World Tour exclusively on Apple Music starting December 20, 2015, and will also be part of promotions at Apple Stores with displays and Taylor Swift-branded iTunes gift cards.
The pop star's 26th birthday was yesterday, and she broke the news on her Tumblr with a note saying "Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes! I have a little surprise for you. The 1989 World Tour LIVE. Directed by Jonas Akerlund, released on @applemusic December 20, 2015."
Her post is linked to iTunes, and there's a note that the tour video was filmed in Sydney, Australia at the ANZ Stadium in front of 76,000 fans and will be "available exclusively on Apple Music starting December 20." A preview of the video is also available, and invites viewers to subscribe to Apple Music or start the 90-day free trial to see the full concert video. The concert features appearances by Mick Jagger, Selena Gomez, Miranda Lambert, Alanis Morissette, Fetty Wap, Wiz Kalifa, Mary J Blige, John Legend, Justin Timberlake, Beck and St Vincent.
