Taylor Swift is ending 2018 very strong. She was named the most influential person on Twitter, after tweeting only 13 times. Now Swift’s Reputation stadium tour has been declared the highest grossing US tour according to Billboard Boxscore.
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.
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).
