Taylor Swift keeps breaking records. Her international RED Tour, which wrapped last month after a series of shows across Asia, grossed more than $150 million, beating Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul Tour, which grossed $141 million in 2006 and 2007.

Swift’s RED Tour kicked off in March 2013 in Nebraska. After six months performing across North America, she took her show to Australia and New Zealand to wrap up 2013. She kicked off 2014 with shows in London and Berlin, and then launched her final leg of the tour in Asia on May 30.

During the RED Tour, Swift played 15 stadiums, including Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, which resulted in the best box office sales of her whole tour. According to Billboard, Swift sold approximately 1.7 million tickets at 86 performances in 12 countries.

While Swift is currently taking a break from touring, she’s hard at work on a new album that she has called her “favorite thing” she’s created to date. No additional details about her latest project have been released.
