The Eras Tour of Taylor Swift is consistently breaking records with each show and is on its way to becoming the highest-grossing tour ever.

Based only on the first 56 shows of the North American leg of the tour, as of August 2023, The Eras Tour became the second highest-grossing tour overall and the highest-grossing tour ever for a woman. The count for the total number of shows has risen to 151, with more dates being added to meet the escalating demand.

The Eras Tour is a journey through Taylor Swift’s musical career, celebrating 17 years of her musical journey. Each show consists of an astonishing 44 songs from all of her albums, presented over a span of three hours and 15 minutes.

According to survey data from QuestionPro, a research firm, the North American ticket sales of the tour could gross $2.2 billion. Estimates from Peter Cohan, an associate professor of management at Babson College, show that Swift could earn as much as $4.1 billion from The Eras Tour, assuming that she keeps the standard artist’s share of roughly 85 percent of her tour’s revenue. The average ticket prices of her show are $465. These earnings could make Swift the highest grossing musical act on a single tour in history.
