Taylor Swift broke the record for highest-grossing U.S. tour, with her Reputation Stadium Tour.
According to Billboard, this tour broke the record for the highest-grossing U.S. tour since Billboard Boxscore began tracking touring data in 1990. Overall, the tour grossed $266.1 million and sold 2,068,399 tickets. These numbers smash the previous record held by the Rolling Stones. Their A Bigger Bang Tour in 2005-07 grossed $245 million. Also, while The Stones reached this record across 70 American shows, Swift stole the title in just 38.
These impressive numbers also break Swift’s own previously held record of highest-grossing domestic tour by a woman. Her previous record was her 1989 World Tour, which grossed $181.5 million. The biggest nights of her tour were the three consecutive performances July 20-22 at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Across these three shows, she grossed $22 million and sold 165,654 tickets.
Dating back to her first show on the Fearless Tour, on April 23, 2009, Swift has grossed $687.7 million in the U.S. This amount is over $140 million more than any other artist in that stretch of time. The closest are Kenny Chesney ($547.4 million), U2 ($470.1 million) and Luke Bryan ($350.8 million).
