Music news

There is nothing that can resist Taylor Swift. After having witnessed a great year in his career (with the start of The Eras Tour, its arrival on international billboards last October either the release of their versions of Speak Now and 1989), the singer celebrates her 34th birthday with one of the best news possible.

And in the last hours the Tennessee has managed to break a new Guinness Record with the tour that has exceeded all our expectations this year: The Eras Tour is already the highest-grossing tour in history. As if that were not enough, it is the first to overcome the barrier of 1,000 million dollars raised.

Taylor Swift thus fulfills the predictions that we began to hear during the month of November last year, when she announced the first part of her tour in more than twenty stadiums in the United States that she would eventually end up doubling due to high demand. More than two million people were able to buy their tickets in the first 24 hours of the start of its saledespite the fall of the Ticketmaster website and the odyssey of facing a virtual queue of more than 15 million people.

With 66 of 151 dates made to date and after visiting 24 cities and 4 different countries (United States, Mexico, Argentina and Brazil), the data offered by Pollstar speaks of a collection of 1,004 million dollarsthus surpassing the $939 million with which Elton John remained at the top with a tour of 328 dates over five years.

Besides, The predictions for next year once again place it at another record that, if met, will once again be historic: finishing the tour in 2024, exceeding the 2 billion dollars raised.. Such is the power and money that the singer and her team currently handle that this year’s collection exceeds the sums of the second and third tours that are placed behind Taylor: Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour (so far the highest-grossing tour for a female artist, surpassing Madonna) and the Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band World Tour, which will also continue next year.

And you, do you already have tickets to see it in Madrid? Taylor Swift will fill the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium on May 30, 2024. Are you going to miss it?
