Taylor Swift is topping the charts when it comes to ticket sales and fans couldn't be prouder. Recently 23-year-old country singer sold out 11 shows at the Staples Center offering a new performance record at this iconic venue in Los Angeles. Taylor Swift is also dominating the competition when it comes to singing for the masses. According to data released by StubHub, the artist is so popular she is leaving her competitors in the dust. In an exclusive for Examiner.com on Thursday, StubHub spokesperson Alison Salcedo revealed some amazing numbers surrounding Taylor Swift’s music in 2013.
When it comes to StubHub ticket sales, Taylor Swift is the top-selling female artist, followed by Beyoncé, Pink, Rihanna, and Carrie Underwood. Swift’s fans are coming to her performances by the carloads as they love her music. In fact Taylor has sold twice the amount of tickets to date as Beyonce, the second-highest top-selling female artist. Wow! That’s amazing!
Putting the numbers into perspective, Taylor Swift has sold more tickets in 2013 than Rihanna, Carrie Underwood, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys, Miranda Lambert, Rascal Flatts, and Selena Gomez combined. Yes, that's a lot of tickets!
So is there a chance Selena Gomez or other young female artists can top Taylor’s impressive numbers before the end of 2013? It’s doubtful. The exclusive data reflects that Swift’s fans have shown the star some serious appreciation for her music and being it’s so late in the year, it looks like Taylor Swift will be number one in 2013 when it comes to ticket sales.
Taylor Swift’s Red tour continues to travel the United States and according to the artist’s website, the shows left are already sold out. After the final performance in Nashville on September 21, the star gets some well deserved time off. Then she and the band packs up and heads to Australia in November for another leg the Red tour.
