She’s done it again. Taylor Swift has broken yet another record — and this time it’s because of her Red Tour.

The Red Tour, which made it all over the globe, grossed over $150 million! With these huge numbers, she broke the record once held by fellow country stars¬†Faith Hill and Tim McGraw‘s Soul2Soul Tour. The country couple’s tour grossed $141 million in 2006 and 2007, but Swift’s run breaks the¬†revenue record for a single tour.

Swift’s tour just wrapped up in Asia in May. It began in March 2013 in Nebraska and stayed in North America for six months before going overseas. Her first stops across the ocean were Australia and New Zealand at the end of 2013. She then took a much needed tour break and hit the road once again, going to London, Berlin and then finishing up in Asia on May 30.

Like anything Swift does, the tour was one for the record books. It reached 15 stadiums, including the Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts, where she scored her best box office numbers. In all, she sold 1,702,933 tickets at 86 shows in 12 different countries, Billboard.

Now that her lengthy road run is finished, what’s a girl to do? The 24-year-old singer is taking a little break from traveling and is working on her next album. Swift’s pal, Ed Sheeran, even let fans in on a few things that we could potentially see from the ‘Red’ singer in the future … the near future!
