As per Billboard, Swift's current trek is now the highest-grossing U.S. tour by a woman, excluding residencies, according to Billboard Boxscore. Swift has brought in $191.1 million, with an additional $11.1 million earned in Canada, for her 27 dates (so far) across the United States. Interestingly enough, Swift's tour surpasses the previous highest-grossing U.S. trek by a woman, which was set by none other than Swift's own "1989 World Tour." By the end of its run, it had earned $181.5 million. At time of press, the "reputation Stadium Tour" has averaged about $7 million per show, with a total audience count of 1,489,904 for all 27 of its sold-out shows.
The best part of the accomplishment is that the tour is far from over. Swift has 11 more shows left of the Stateside leg, including stops in Nashville, Detroit, Minneapolis and Kansas City, before heading out of the country for seven more dates in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.
While Swift's current trek hasn't boasted the same amount of celebrities compared to her last tour, the star power is still undeniable. Among some of the guests who have appeared on the trek include Selena Gomez, Shawn Mendes, Troye Sivan, Robbie Williams, Hayley Kiyoko, Bryan Adams and Niall Horan.
