Taylor Swift and Beyoncé have also released concert movies on Netflix
Should the Grammy winner release a Sweetener concert on Netflix, it will mark her first concert film for the streaming service. Her previous Nickelodeon shows—Sam & Cat and Victorious—are both on Netflix.
She would also be following in the footsteps of her fellow musicians Taylor Swift and Beyoncé, who have both debuted concerts on Netflix. Swift’s Reputation World Tour hit the streaming platform on Dec. 13, 2018 (which was also her 29th birthday). She most recently debuted Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions on Disney+ on Nov. 25.
Along with the Homecoming film was the live album of the same name. Swift also released a Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions live album on music streaming platforms following her film’s release.
A Sweetener World Tour movie would be a welcome gift during the concert drought the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has caused. Keep your eyes peeled for a possible trailer from Grande and Netflix.
