According to numbers reported by Billboard Boxscore, Taylor Swift’s international tour of the Eastern Hemisphere netted her $345.7 million in revenue this year. Swift recently broke records in the United States, and her latest venture across the ocean was equally as successful.
From her last 5 shows in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan, Taylor earned approximately $30.5 million. Her concerts at the Tokyo Dome between the 21st and 20th of November made $14.9 million alone.
Her two Japanese shows sold 100,109 tickets. In 2015, Taylor went on tour for The 1989 World Tour which earned $250.7 million, meaning that her latest series of concerts earned 38% more than the last one.

It’s so hard to believe that tonight will be the last time we wear these costumes, play this set list, do this choreography, and then say goodbye to the Reputation Stadium Tour. Thank you to the crowds that have lit up our year. We do this last one for all of you. ❤️ PS make sure to scream loud for @mariawada and @maho_udo tonight!! Their families are here and this is their hometown show ?????? ?: @junsatophoto // @gettyentertainment
On the 8th of May, the star first began at the University Of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, and she played six months before finally finishing with the last Japanese performances.
She was supporting her sixth studio record, Reputation, which was named by the Billboard 200 as the top album of the year. In summation, she sold almost a billion dollars – $935.4 million – and sold 9,689,692 tickets, in total, for Reputation.
While the Reputation World Tour was a smashing success, her latest album was met with somewhat mixed reviews. However, many critics named a couple of the tracks off of Reputation as some of the best she has ever written. And Metacritic gave it a 71/100.
Roisin O’Connor, for instance, writing for The Independent, said that Taylor’s song, “Call It What You Want,” was one of the greatest songs she has ever written. As her album title suggests, she has earned a reputation for herself in recent years as somewhat of a firestarter.
Taylor reportedly has taken subtle shots at Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and Katy Perry on her past records. Perhaps most famously, she, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West fought for awhile after Kanye rapped about her in his song, “Famous.”
As most know, despite Taylor’s “clean” image, so to speak, she has feuded with other huge pop and rap stars repeatedly, including the aforementioned artists, in addition to the producer/DJ, Calvin Harris, who she once dated.
