According to recent estimates published on CNN, Taylor's Eras tour could gross $2.2 billion in just North American ticket sales, which would make it the highest grossing tour...ever.

The Washington Post also estimated that Tay could earn upwards of $4.1 billion from the tour. Excuse me while I go cry in poor.

The tour grossed $266.1 million in domestic revenue, making it the highest-grossing tour in United States history. Truly, what is life? No, seriously:

In case you want some details, when Taylor kicked off her tour in Phoenix in 2018, she set a new venue record for gross and attendance. THEN she hit up San Francisco and made a cool $14 million, before pocketing another $16.2 million in SoCal.

(It’s worth $17 million.)
