Taylor Swift Breaks U.S. Record With ‘Reputation’ Stadium Tour



What most fans suspected is now official: Taylor Swift’s Reputation Stadium Tour is officially the highest-grossing tour in U.S. history. And, when it comes to touring, no other artist comes close to her success over the past decade.

Between May 8 and October 6, Swift performed 38 dates across the country. Those shows were enough to gross $266.1 million on ticket sales of over 2 million. It’s the highest-grossing U.S. tour since Billboard Boxscore began tracking touring data three decades ago.

The previous record for the highest-grossing tour was held by The Rolling Stones’ 2005-07 A Bigger Bang Tour, which played 70 shows to Swift’s 38.

Swift previously held the highest-grossing domestic tour for a woman: her The 1989 World Tour’s U.S. take was $181.5 million. FORBES recently named Swift the second-highest-paid Woman in Music for 2018, with an estimated $80 million in pre-tax earning during the June 2017 – June 2018 scoring period. That put her just below Katy Perry (with an estimated $83 million, thanks in large part to her $20 million American Idol contract) and Beyonce ($60 million). Swift will almost certainly claim the top spot for 2019 thanks to the majority of the tour dates falling in the 2019 scoring period

Notably, Swift’s Reputation Tour featured an all-female primary lineup. She was supported by pop acts Camila Cabello and Charli XCX. Swift’s tour set attendance records and made history in many of the cities it played. Swift became the first female artist to headline three consecutive nights at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, the first female to sell out three nights at Massachusetts’ Gillette Stadium, and, in Ireland, the first female artist to headline Dublin’s famed Croke Park twice.
