Taylor Swift Tops 2018 North American Tours Chart, Kenny Chesney Lands Fourth
Taylor Swift has had an incredible 2018 — which is no surprise — but yet another accolade she can add to her extensive collection is that of topping Pollstar's Top North American tour tally
The singer sold a remarkable 1,268,706 tickets in North America alone, and came in second only to pop star Ed Sheeran in terms of worldwide touring stats for the year, grossing around 2.8 million tickets around the globe.
In terms of dollars for her North American efforts, Swift racked in $277.3 million. Following her up in her fellow country affiliations are the Eagles at No. 3, and Kenny Chesney at No. 4.
Chesney was already showing his chops in this arena in the summertime, landing at No. 8 for Pollstar's midyear check on the biggest worldwide tours for 2018.
For the end of the year, Jay Z and wife Beyoncé pulled ahead of both the Eagles and Chesney in the North American category; meanwhile global powerhouse Sheeran landed at No 5 on this particular list.
The Pollstar data compiled data from rom 3,025 event records, totaling $3.7 billion and 40 million tickets sold.
