The singer helps Messina Touring Group hold the top two spots, with Kenny Chesney coming in at No. 2.

Taylor Swift rules Billboard’s latest Hot Tours ranking as her Reputation Tour stretches to the East Coast, including three sold-out nights at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium.

Swift leads with $27,180,143 accrued over four shows reported to Billboard, led by the three-show run at MetLife in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The July 20-22 shows grossed $22,031,386 and featured support from Charli XCX and Camila Cabello.

Additionally, Swift stopped by Cleveland’s FirstEnergy Stadium for one night (July 17), adding $5,148,757 over 51,323 tickets sold, also a sellout.

Messina Touring Group, which is promoting Swift’s latest tour, holds the top two spots on Hot Tours, as fellow Messina artist Kenny Chesney ranks at No. 2 from a pair of shows on his Trip Around the Sun Tour. The country star earned $5,261,295 from gross ticket sales, including shows at St. Louis’ Busch Stadium (July 21) and BankPlus Amphitheater at Snowden Grove in Mississippi (July 19).

Since beginning his tour in late April, Chesney has grossed nearly $75 million over 30 shows, varying between smaller sets featuring Old Dominion as an opener and larger blowouts that add Thomas Rhett and Brandon Lay to the billing.
