American singer Taylor Swift is now the first person to earn $1.04 billion from music tour.

 

Her ‘Eras’ tour broke 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.

 

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