Taylor Swift, the singer, billionaire, and Time Person of the Year, has added another milestone to her stellar year: her Eras Tour has become the highest-grossing tour of all time, surpassing the $1 billion mark.
The tour, which features songs from all her albums, from her self-titled debut to her latest release, Red (Taylor’s Version), has earned $1.04 billion (£840 million) from 151 shows, from March 2023 to December 2024, according to Pollstar.
This is a remarkable feat, considering that the previous record-holder, Elton John’s farewell tour, earned $939 million from 328 shows.
Swift’s tour has also outperformed the combined total of the next two highest-grossing tours of this year, by Beyoncé and Bruce Springsteen. Pollstar predicts that by 2024, the tour will likely reach around $2 billion in revenue.
