Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’ rewrites history as highest-grossing music tour

In a lyrical twist fit for a Taylor Swift anthem, history has been rewritten for the songstress herself. Much like her timeless melodies, her “Eras Tour” has etched its name in the music industry, breaking records and soaring to unprecedented heights.

“Are you such a huge Swiftie that you’ve seen [Taylor Swift] on her Eras Tour?” Guinness World Records asked on X (formerly Twitter) on Dec. 12. “If you did, you’ve been a part of the highest-grossing music tour in history!”

The Grammy winner’s record-breaking tour takes the spotlight away from Elton John’s farewell tour, which took its final bow earlier this year, grossing $939 million over 328 shows. 

The “Cruel Summer” singer-songwriter, with her sixth concert tour, not only breaks records but leaves a lasting impression for Swifties worldwide, surpassing the previous Guinness record with $1.04 billion. It is also the first one to reach beyond a billion dollars in revenue. 

Truly a blockbuster hit, the tour has outshone even this year’s next two highest-grossing tours—those of Beyoncé and Bruce Springsteen—added together. 


But it doesn’t end there. According to Pollstar, the success could continue, with projections suggesting the tour could realistically rake in over $2 billion if all the remaining scheduled shows hit the stage.

On her Instagram, she posted the schedule for next year with a caption: “EXCUSE ME HI I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY. I can’t wait to see so many of you on The Eras Tour next year at these new international dates! Visit TaylorSwift.com/tour for more information on your registrations, pre-sales and on-sales!!”

Although the tour won’t be coming to the Philippines, fans have a chance to catch it next year in Japan as the award-winning singer will be performing  at the Tokyo Dome on Feb. 7, 8, 9, and 10, and in Singapore at the National Stadium on Mar. 2, 3, and 4. 

The tour kicked off in March 2023 and is scheduled to wrap up in December 2024 after a total of 151 shows worldwide.
