ABC announced today a brand-new concert special from record-breaking global superstar Taylor Swift, Taylor Swift City of Lover Concert, airing SUNDAY, MAY 17 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), immediately following the season finale of American Idol.
Filmed last September at L’Olympia Theater in Paris, France, Swift performs songs from her award-winning album “Lover” to an intimate crowd of fans from 37 countries, traveling to the City of Love for this once-in-a-lifetime concert. The musical event gives fans unprecedented access to behind-the-scenes moments with the artist and marks her only concert performance this year, after her Lover Fest tour was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“While we are all home, Taylor Swift and her family of fans will be able to have a moment together and experience a never-before-seen, intimate performance, and we are so thrilled to be able to offer this to our own family of viewers on ABC,” added Eric Avram, vice president, Talent and Booking, ABC Entertainment.
About Taylor Swift
This is a testament not only to Taylor’s devoted fans but also to her songwriting prowess. As USA Today said, “Critics are falling in love with Taylor Swift’s latest album ‘Lover.’” Rolling Stone hailed, “’Lover’ is a career-topping masterpiece” and “the superstar’s writing is better than it’s ever been.” A.V. Club called “Lover,“ “one of her strongest, most relatable albums to date” and Vulture said, “The old Taylor is back on ‘Lover’ and the best she’s been in years.”
Taylor is the only artist in history to have four consecutive albums sell over 1 million copies in their week of release (“Speak Now,” “RED,” “1989” and “reputation”) and the only female artist to have six albums each sell at least 500,000 copies in a single week (“Fearless,” “Speak Now,” “RED,” “1989,” “reputation” and “Lover”).
