Taylor Swift Closes Reputation Stadium Tour with $345 Million
After breaking the record for the most successful U.S. tour to-date, Taylor Swift flew around the world to conquer the Eastern hemisphere. The final reports for Taylor Swift’s Reputation Stadium Tour are in and the superstar finishes her latest international trek with $345.7 million, according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore. She tops the Hot Tours tally dated Dec. 8 (see below) with $30.5 million from her final five shows in Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
Swift’s two shows at the Tokyo Dome on Nov. 20-21 pulled in $14.9 million, making the biggest international report of the Reputation Stadium Tour and the sixth biggest gross from the tour overall. At 100,109 tickets sold, the Japanese shows were the 12th engagement from the tour to cross the six-figure attendance mark.
The Reputation Stadium Tour’s final $345.7 million gross is a 38% jump from 2015’s The 1989 World Tour, which pulled in $250.7 million. Swift began her 2018 trek on May 8 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., playing for six months before wrapping with the aforementioned Japanese dates. The tour was in support of Swift’s sixth studio LP reputation, which was recently named the top album of the year on the Billboard 200 year-end recap.
At the close of her latest tour, Swift’s career gross climbs to $935.4 million from 9,689,692 tickets sold.
Further down the list, Trans-Siberian Orchestra make their first dent with two reports from their annual holiday tour. Further, Fleetwood Mac continues their first tour since the departure of Lindsey Buckingham and Tenacious D tours in support of their first album in six years. Check out the full list below.
