Taylor Swift has taken her 1989 World Tour to the $130 million mark in ticket sales, according to Billboard Boxscore, and it’s on track to become her highest-grossing tour ever.
The 1989 tour has grossed just $20 million less than the final box office tally from her Red tour that wrapped last summer after a 15-month span (its currently her highest-grossing tour). And the 1989 tour still has four months to go before ending on Dec. 12 in Australia.
So far, the 1989 tour has reported 1.1 million tickets sold tickets from 37 performances through the end of August.
Swift easily tops Billboard’s latest Hot Tours tally (see list, below), her fourth appearance this year on the list. Her ranking is based on box-office grosses totaling $43.5 million. Her shows reported during the past week were 17 concerts from three arenas during her European run in June as well as six venues on her ongoing trek through North American markets that stretches through the end of October.
The tour’s European trek included a headlining appearance at the Barclaycard British Summer Time festival at London’s Hyde Park on June 27 along with five arena performances in four countries. This recap includes the sold out shows in Glasgow, Manchester and Dublin.
Among the six North American venues, Staples Center in Los Angeles logged $8.9 million in box office revenue from five sellout shows. It’s the 1989 tour’s top gross at an arena since the May launch.
