Taylor Swift breaks Elton John’s record for highest-grossing music tour

Taylor Swift

American singer Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras’ tour has broken the record for the highest-grossing music tour in history.

Guinness World Records confirmed the new record on their website on Tuesday.

‘Eras’ tour also became the first ever music tour to surpass $1 billion in revenue.

The tour, which began in March 2023 and is set to conclude in December 2024 after a total of 151 shows worldwide, has earned $1.04 billion (£840 million) to date, according to Pollstar.

The earnings bettered British icon, Elton John’s five-year farewell tour which ended earlier this year, bringing in $939 million (£749 million) over 328 shows.

The Telegraph recalls that Taylor Swift recently set a new Guinness World Record as the first musician to become a billionaire solely on music earnings.
