Her 1989 tour racked in an estimated $250 million, making it the highest-grossing set of performances in 2015.

And Taylor Swift is set to break records again as the first seven shows of her Reputation Tour has already earned a whopping $54 million, according to Billboard.

The End Game hitmaker, 28 - who is reportedly worth $280 million - kicked off the six-month tour on May 8 in Glendale, Arizona, and is set to conclude her set of electric shows in Japan in November.

 

The first seven performances saw the singer command the stage in five cities, including Glendale, Santa Clara, Pasadena, Seattle and Denver.

Taylor's first show - which took place at University of Phoenix Stadium - sold nearly 60,000 tickets and grossed an estimated $7 million, which knocked Metallica’s WorldWired Tour off the top of the charts for their earnings of $5.2 million at the same venue.

With an impressive start to her tour, Billboard have predicted that sales could potentially reach $400 million by the end of set of concerts.

The September songstress recently stunned fans as she invited her BFF Selena Gomez to perform her chart-topping track Hands to Myself during her show-stopping tour.

The Ready for It singer - who turned heads in a snake print bodysuit - maintained her superstar status as she delivered an electric show with her close pal, 25.

 

 

Paying tribute to their admirable friendship during the show, the brunette bombshell gushed: 'The reason why she has been one of my best friends is because this person has never, ever judge a single decision I’ve made.'

Selena continued: 'But honestly thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting someone that I know that is the most beautiful, strong, independent woman I’ve ever met. So thank you for supporting my best friend.'

The pair last performed together to conclude Taylor's spectacular 85-date world tour in August 2015, where they performed Selena's chart-topping Good For You single.

Taylor has taken to the stage with former Fifth Harmony member Camilla Cabello, who recently canceled her performance on the tour after revealing she was hospitalized following the Billboard Music Awards.

Last week, the blonde led the crowd in a tribute to the unwell Havana singer, asking the Seattle crowd to chant 'Get well soon Camilla'.
