Taylor Swift’s Reputation Stadium Tour Breaks Record for Highest-Grossing U.S. Tour


The tour grossed $266.1 million & sold over 2 million tickets domestically.

Taylor Swift closed out her Reputation Stadium Tour in spectacular fashion, breaking the record for the highest-grossing U.S. tour since Billboard Boxscore began tracking touring data in 1990. Domestically, the tour grossed $266.1 million and sold 2,068,399 tickets, besting The Rolling Stones’ $245 million gross from their A Bigger Bang Tour in 2005-07. While The Stones achieved their then-record gross across 70 American shows, Swift stole the title in just 38.

As previously reported, Swift broke her own record for the highest-grossing domestic tour by a woman, when the Reputation trek surpassed The 1989 World Tour’s $181.5 million (2015) in August.

The U.S. leg of Swift’s latest tour ran from May 8 through Oct. 6.

The biggest engagement of the Reputation Stadium Tour, domestic or otherwise, was Swift’s three consecutive performances July 20-22 at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, where she grossed $22 million and sold 165,654 tickets. Notably, the peak of The 1989 World Tour was at the same stadium, where she grossed $13.4 million and sold 110,015 tickets over two shows (July 10-11, 2015).

Swift’s ascent from massive to even more eye-popping on the road is consistent across the country. Her first trek, the Fearless Tour in 2009-10, grossed $53.6 million in the U.S., a staggering figure for a debut headlining tour. In 2011-12, the Speak Now World Tour grossed $88.5 million, followed by The Red Tour’s $98 million in 2013-14. As Swift expanded further from arenas into stadiums, The 1989 World Tour raked in $181.5 million, an 85 percent increase from The Red Tour. And now, with 2018’s Reputation Stadium Tour, Swift climbed another 47 percent from the 1989 tour to her now-U.S. record $266.1 million gross.
