The wins keep coming for Taylor Swift … whose “Eras” tour has already raked in an estimated $1.04 BILLION in gross ticket sales.
According to live-music trade publication Pollstar, it’s the first-ever tour to smash the billion-dollar milestone.
The sky-high numbers have topped all previous tours in ticket sales for the 12-month period from Nov. 17, 2022, to Nov. 15, 2023 — and yes, that includes Beyoncé‘s “Renaissance” tour, which takes second place.
It’s estimated that Tay’s tour has sold a whopping 4.35 million tickets from 60 shows … with merchandise sales racking up to $200 million during the yearly run.
Those record-breaking numbers are expected to escalate — as Pollstar predicts that ticket sales from the next eligible box-office year will once again hit $1B — taking the tour’s total to $2B.
Of course, the enormous success of her tour means Taylor will be lining her pockets with some hefty payday checks — though she’s shown that sharing is caring … dishing over $50M in total bonuses to her concert crew and an extra $100k to every truck driver hauling her tour equipment around the country.
Also, let’s not forget — her concert film also bagged an enormous $250M at the global box office.
Surely, her achievements speak volumes … hushing the haters of her recent Time’s Person of the Year crowning.
