Swift sent a video to Good Morning America promoting the live concert, saying:
“Hey ‘Good Morning America,’ it’s Taylor. Just wanted to say hi. Hope everybody is doing well and happy and healthy and staying safe. So I played this concert in September called ‘The City Of Lover Show’ and it was in Paris, and 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! So that is going to be airing on ABC on May 17 and the next day it will on be on Hulu and Disney+ – so I’m really excited about it. And again, sending my love to you guys and hope you’re well.”Taylor Swift on Good Morning America
