Taylor Swift’s Reputation stadium tour has become the highest-grossing US tour by a woman, breaking Swift’s own previous record.
From the 27 US dates reported to Billboard so far, the tour has grossed a record US$191.1m, with an additional $11.1m earnt in Canada.
Excluding residencies, that makes the Reputation tour – notable for pioneering a ‘slow ticketing’ model, in which the dates are priced to sell out as close to the show as possible – the most lucrative ever by a solo woman, per Billboard’s Boxscore chart, beating the $181.5m grossed in the US previously by 2015’s 1989 world tour.
The Reputation tour has 11 US to dates to go before it heads to Australasia, then Japan.
