Taylor Swift’s tour estimated to gross more than $1 billion, marking highest-grossing tour in music history


Pop sensation Taylor Swift is cashing in ticket sales of more than $13 million every night on her ‘The Eras Tour’ in America. 

According to Bloomberg, The 33-year-old singer-songwriter is currently on pace to shatter the threshold to gross more than $1 billion, marking the highest-grossing tour in music history. Nonetheless, Swift’s US tour alone is estimated to have generated a staggering income of $591 million. 

Most of the revenue covered the cost of production, apart from the additional millions of dollars in merchandise sales that the tour is generating. 

The once-in-a-lifetime concert was kicked off by breaking the longstanding record for the most-attended female concert in US history. The Global Megastar’s milestone opening night in Glendale, Arizona, held an audience of over 69,000.

The record was previously held by iconic diva Madonna for a whopping 36 years since 1987 when she performed for 63,000 people. 

One fan tweeted: “Queens breaking queens record”

With Taylor completing 22 days from a total of over 50 dates in total across America, the tour has already grossed $300 million, according to Pollstar, an industry publication. After her 50 day tour across America, Taylor will fly abroad for her tour dates in South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. 

The average ticket to a Swift concert costs $254 a night, but that hasn’t stopped “Swifties,” as her fans are known, from showering all their love. And Swift is returning! During her show in Cincinnati, adorable concertgoers suggest that Taylor has dropped a slew of Easter eggs hinting at her next rerecord and when it might be released.
