Wonderwall Logo By Mariel Turner of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 41: Taylor Swift, who previously held the record for the highest grossing U.S. tour by a woman thanks to the success of her 2015 "1989" concert trek, broke her own record with her 2018 "Reputation" stadium tour. According to Billboard Boxscore, in August 2018, Taylor surpassed herself as 27 of her U.S. dates grossed $191.1 million -- and that was two months before her stadium tour run ended!

When it comes to concert tours, 2018 is likely a year we won't forget. Fans experienced several record-breaking, money-making tours this year with Taylor Swift, Elton John and many others hitting the road. Let's look back at the highest grossing tours of the year, starting with Taylor. The talented blonde brought in the big bucks with her worldwide "Reputation" stadium tour, which kicked off on May 8 and wrapped up on Nov. 21. Once all the receipts were tallied, it emerged that it was the highest grossing tour in U.S. history with 38 American dates earning $266.1 million on ticket sales of over 2 million, Billboard reported. Taylor bested previous title holders the Rolling Stones. She also broke her own record -- which she'd initially set with 2015's "1989" tour -- for the highest grossing tour by a female artist in North American history.
