Taylor Swift’s Reputation Stadium Tour highest grossing in US history

’s has toppled The Rolling Stones for the record for highest-grossing US tour in history.

It generated US$266.1 million and sold over 2 million tickets (2,068,399) in the singer-songwriter’s home country, reported.

The Stones’ A Bigger Bang Tour in 2005-07 grossed $245 million.

While the legendary British band achieved that number across 70 concerts, Swift did it in just 38 between May 8 to October 6.

However, it must be noted that the high prices of her tickets have to be factored in: floor seats started at $500 and VIP tix went for $1,800.

In August, Reputation Stadium Tour became the highest grossing US tour by a female artist.

The previous artist to hold that record was Swift herself, with her The 1989 World Tour which grossed $181.5 million in 2015, Billboard reported.

Swift’s rise as a live drawcard in the US has been staggering.

Her first tour, The Fearless Tour (2009-10) grossed $53.6 million.

The Speak Now Tour (2011-12) brought in $88.5 million, while The Red Tour (2013—14) topped $98 million.

The 1989 World Tour had an 85% leap to $181.5 million, while the most recent trek was a 47% jump.

Last week social media monitoring company Brandwatch reported that Taylor is the most influential person on Twitter.

Swift has 83.1 million followers on that platform.
