Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” Becomes Highest Grossing Concert Film Of All Time

With another significant accomplishment under her belt, Taylor Swift is off to a historic start in 2024. After “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” opened in American theaters on October 13, Swift’s film has made more than $261.6 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing concert and documentary film in box office history. The accomplishment coincides with one week after “The Eras Tour” made its debut in China, grossing $8.7 million after its December 31 launch. “The Eras Tour” surpasses Michael Jackson’s “This Is It,” which debuted in 2009 and brought in $261.2 million at the worldwide box office to become the highest-grossing concert film ever

Its historic opening weekend is largely responsible for the overall profit so far. “The Eras Tour” was the greatest opening weekend ever for a concert film when it was released in October. It earned $92.8 million in North America and $30.7 million abroad. The film’s total revenue was $123.5 million. After earning over $73 million in the same period as 2011’s “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never,” the record was surpassed. With an opening weekend of $76 million, it was the second-biggest October debut ever at the US box office, trailing only 2019’s “Joker,” which made $96 million.

Swift’s most recent achievement follows the unconventional release of “The Eras Tour.” She teamed up with AMC Theatres, the most prominent cinema company in the world, rather than choosing distribution from an established studio. This meant that, as the film’s producer, Swift was able to keep roughly 57% of the ticket sales money, with the theatres keeping the remaining portion and AMC receiving a substantial distribution fee. The movie was screened at 3,855 theatres in the United States and Canada and 4,527 venues abroad.

Swift’s fanbase is continually growing, and on February 7th, she will return to the Tokyo Dome in Japan for a four-night performance as part of her Eras Tour. She will travel the globe all year, ending her journey in Vancouver, British Columbia, in December.
