Taylor Swift surprised her devoted fan base as she graced the world premiere of her concert film with a spectacular appearance at The Grove in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ, sources close to Swift, 33, revealed that her unexpected cameo was "secretly planned" and "totally dependent on the security arrangements at the venue."
An insider disclosed that the Cruel Summer crooner was only allowed to attend the premiere if the affectionately referred “Taylor-mania” was under control and no security issues arose.
In anticipation of the event, the world-famous outdoor mall The Groove, shut down for the first time in two decades and “hundreds” of security guards were hired to ensure everything would be under control.
Notably, even before the pop star walked on the red carpet, her concert film has already achieved massive success at the box-office.
Swifties rushed to grab advance tickets, according to Variety, the concert film has already surpassed $100 million in advance ticket sales worldwide and, is predicted to reach a total of $175 million in sales by the end of the opening weekend.
If these predictions come to life, it would make this concert film the highest grossing in history even before hitting theaters.
Taylor Swift has recently completed the first half of Eras Tour in the United States, and is set to continue her gigs in Latin America following the movie premiere next month.
The tour is set to continue across Asia, Australia and Europe in the early part of the following year, with additional tour dates scheduled for the United States and Canada in the fall of 2024.
