Taylor Swift continues to cement her reputation as an unstoppable musical queen, according to a report by Lena Grossman of the well known entertainment industry news magazine Variety.
The Shake It Off singer will be honored at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 14 where she will receive the coveted Tour of the Year Award. The Reputation Stadium Tour of Taylor Swift broke records, including her own, which is why iHeartMedia decided to grant her the honors. She will be at the show to accept the award.
Over the course of her tour that spanned four continents and countless countries, the 29-year-old singer sold over 2 million tickets and grossed $266 million in sales in the U.S. alone. That makes it the best-selling tour in American history. Taylor Swift also previously set a record for the highest-grossing tour by a woman and then dethroned herself for the top spot thanks to this go-around.
Some major musical guests joined her on tour, including Camila Cabello and Charli XCX.
As if that wasn’t all enough, Taylor Swift dropped a Netflix special called Taylor Swift: Reputation Stadium Tour on Dec. 31.
Plus, her reputation concerts were filled with a slew of surprise guests and rolling with the weather punches. For instance, in Los Angeles she brought Shawn Mendes onstage and they sang There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back together. Selena Gomez showed up the next night in L.A. too. While on the opposite coast in New Jersey, Taylor Swift performed in the pouring rain (sounds like something straight out of her lyrics, no?) and broke another record by becoming the first female to perform at MetLife Stadium three consecutive nights in a row.
Talk about a year! Plus, she’s posting a bunch of cryptic Instagram photos that are making fans believe she could be releasing a new album any day now.
