Taylor Swift kicked off her eight-month “Reputation Tour” in May and just after seven concerts she has made more money than you can imagine. Last week I mentioned that she’s grossed roughly $50 million, but now the official numbers are in. Swift has earned a total of $54 million in a little under a month.
Swift and co. have only traveled to five cities and performed seven shows and have made a staggering $54 million. To be exact, she’s made $54,072,007. This is no easy feat, only world-renowned bands and musicians can rake in this much cash so quickly. Swift’s last tour, 1998 Tour, was the highest grossing tour of that year. Over the course of 71 shows that tour made $217,437,974 according to Boxscores.
Billboard predicts that “Reputation Tour” can, not only beat out the 1998 Tour but almost double its earnings. They predict that Swift will earn roughly $400 million while on tour this year.
Every single “Reputation Tour” show so far has been sold out, which means almost 398,000 tickets have been sold. The tour kicked off in Glendale, Arizona at Univerity of Phoenix Stadium. That night alone grossed $7,214,479 and was, of course, sold out.
Then Swift and her two opening acts, Camila Cabello and Charli XCX, played two night in Santa Clara, California at Levi’s Stadium. Those two nights they made $14,006,963 and almost 108,000 people attended.
The third stop they made was in Pasadena, California at the Rose Bowl. They performed for two nights and grossed $16,251,980. Three days later they performed in Seattle, Washington at CenturyLink Field where they made $8,672,219.
The last stop in this multi-million dollar month of touring was in Denver, Colorado at the Sports Authority Field. Swift grossed $7,926,366. Her five tour stops are all in the top six highest grossing tour dates this year on Boxscore. The only other person in the top six with Swift is Elton John. His 14 shows in Las Vegas this year grossed $14,242,301. His 14 shows didn’t make as much money as Swift’s two shows at the Rose Bowl.
She’s making roughly $7.7 million per show and is on track to make more than $400 million. If you didn’t think Swift was a superstar before, all you have to do is look at the numbers.
