Taylor Swift may not be holding her much-anticipated Lover Fests this year—all of the superstar’s tour dates for 2020 were canceled in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic—but she is still bringing the music from her recent album Lover to her fans. Swift announced the ABC television special Taylor Swift City of Lover will air May 17 at 10 p.m. ET.

After its TV broadcast, the concert will be available on demand on Hulu and Disney+ the following day.

“Hope everybody is happy and healthy and staying safe,” Swift said as she announced the concert on Good Morning America on Friday (May 8). “So I played this concert in September called ‘The City of Lover’ show and it was in Paris. It was so much fun. It was actually a show we put together just to celebrate the Lover album coming out and we filmed it.”

According to a release, the concert was filmed in September 2019 at L’Olympia Theater in Paris, France. Swift performed songs from her multi-platinum album Lover before an intimate crowd of fans from 37 countries. The television special will also include behind-the-scenes moments with Swift.

“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.
