Taylor Swift is making more than just her fans' dreams come true from her Eras Tour, as she's also projected to make a staggering 4.1 billion.

Since her latest world tour kicked off back in March, we've seen an influx of attention surrounding the 33-year-old.

Spanning 131 shows across five continents, the Eras Tour has been hailed as Swift's most expansive ever tour, and with new dates being announced as and when they crop up, who knows how many extra performances the 'You Belong With Me' hitmaker will be treating her fans to.

Not only has her dating life and her dedicated fanbase become the center of attention on social media as a result of the popularity of the tour, but many have also finally come to the realization of just how great Swift is as a performer.

Better late than never, right?

It's exactly those said talents that have earned her many accolades, including nine VMA awards which the singer secured earlier this year.

Her outstanding achievements included winning the night's most coveted prizes including Video of the Year and Song of the Year, for her hit track 'Anti-Hero' from her album Midnights. The chart-topping artist also claimed the titles of Best Direction and Best Pop Video showcasing her remarkable versatility and artistry across various aspects of music and video production.

And it didn't stop there.

Swift also took home the awards for Best Artist, Visual Effects, Album of the Year, Show of the Summer, and Best Cinematography - a history-making night that's for sure.

Speaking of history-making, it seems as though the 'All Too Well' hitmaker is on track to secure herself yet another career-defining milestone.

As per multiple outlets, including The Economic Times and Forbes, Swift is on track to earning herself an astonishing $4.1 billion.

Swift is expected to retain about 85% of the revenue and with an average ticket price hovering around $456, the earnings from the tour alone surpass the annual GDP of several smaller countries, according to the Washington Post.

While ticket sales may have added to the overall profit, a study by software firm QuestionPro highlighted that fans also added to the increasing amount as they forked out an average of $93 million per show for tickets, merchandise, travel, and accommodations.

Back in July, a report by the National Reserve emphasized that Swift's tour was boosting the economy of whatever state it was headed to next.

"Despite the slowing recovery in tourism in the region overall, one contact highlighted that May was the strongest month for hotel revenue in Philadelphia since the onset of the pandemic, in large part due to an influx of guests for the Taylor Swift concerts in the city," Philadelphia Federal Reserve officials reported.

Swift put on a three-day extravaganza at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia with her tour earlier in the year, performing on May 12, 13, and 14 with her 44-song set list, as per USA Today.

Philly wasn't the only area impacted by the 33-year-old's tour.

Other places also saw a drastic increase in tourism when Swift's Eras Tour dates hit, with marketing agency Choose Chicago reporting that their area saw $39 million generated in hotel revenue for Illinois, while NBC News added that Swifties brought more than $2.6 million into downtown hotels, as well as $5.3 million to hotels in the surrounding areas of Cincinnati in Ohio.
