Taylor Swift Makes Touring Records

By: Alexandria Sardam - September 27, 2013

We just heard about pop diva, P!nk’s tour success (her recent tour stop of Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena marked the 18th sold out performance) but is she the only one breaking records this week?


Leave it to genre bouncing musician, America’s sweetheart, Miss Taylor Swift to also come out on top.

Known for her country prowess, Swift lands among the other top-grossing touring artists in a comfortable No. 3 spot. Her claimed spot is all thanks to the mile-high ticket sales from the last four arenas on the North American part of her Red tour.

The final three-night stand concerts took place in the heart of where country music resides, Nashville, TN. With sold out crowds at Nashville’s downtown Bridgestone Arena on Sept. 19-21, Swift’s tour was blazing hot. (It did help that Euro cutie with an acoustic guitar, Ed Sheeran, was there performing as an opening act.)

The country superstar performed everything that weekend from “22” to “I Knew You were Trouble.” She also performed her song, “Everything has Changed,” her duet with Sheeran.

Here’s a peak at the duo singing at one of her many tour stops on the Red tour.

The overall grosses from the tour currently resides at $115.3 million. Since starting the tour in March, the “Red hot” tour has had attendance at 1.3 million from an astonishing 66 sold out shows.

The tour will resume the final weekend of November with a five-city run all the way through markets in New Zealand and Australia.

You better grab your tickets now because the tour ends on Dec. 14. (Since these are hot tickets, your best bet is to check with the individual box offices the day of the concert.)

    She’s nowhere near done this year and just anounced Britain in February. The money gross is only lower because she insists on holding large blocks of ticket prices down so kids’ parents aren’t priced out and she holds back free tickets for deserving fans at every concert. She just happens to be a visiting angel.
