Taylor Swift Tops Paul McCartney’s Summer Tour Ticket Sales
According to TicketsNow, no one sold more concert tickets last month than Taylor Swift. The 'Sparks Fly' singer displaced reigning ticket king Paul McCartney, and accounted for six percent of all tickets sold through the service in July. Overall, she ranks sixth on the all-events list, with the U.S. Open tennis tournament taking the top spot.
Enetertainment Weekly reports that other concerts in the Top 5 include Katy Perry's California Dreams Tour, Lil Wayne's I Am Still Music Tour, and U2's 360 Tour. Swift's tour will run through November, while McCartney's On the Run Tour has wrapped up.
The country singer featured fans in the video for her newest single 'Sparks Fly.' In the just-released clip, fans get a glimpse of several of Swift's stage and costume changes. It's a scene more likely to be found on Broadway, yet somehow her crew pulls it off at a new venue every night. The video was filmed over four nights this summer.
