The 15-month world trek grossed over $150 million and surpasses Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul tour in 2006 and 2007, according to Billboard.

The Red tour began in March, 2013 and hit Australia at the end of the year, Europe at the beginning of 2014, and Asia in May and June. The tour ended in Singapore on 12 June (14).

In total, over 1.7 million fans caught Swift onstage during her 86 performances in 12 countries.
