Taylor Swift’s latest tour, Eras Tour, is a massive success and looks set to earn the star a whopping $4.1 billion, which is the highest ever made by an artist on a single tour in history. The wealth she has accumulated from her worldwide tour alone is equivalent to the economic output of 42 countries, according to Peter Cohan, an associate professor of management at Babson College, as cited by the Washington Post. The mammoth production has also contributed billions of dollars to the US economy, thanks to the many opportunities for travel, ticket sales, and merchandise that have arisen for her fans, known as ‘Swifties.’ Her earnings are expected to rise even further with the release of the Eras Tour film, which has already raked in over $80 million in advanced sales before hitting theaters this weekend.
