Over the years, there have only been two female artists in the music industry who have had unparalleled success. Taylor Swift and Beyoncé have, time and time again, proved that they are a notch above the rest. However, with both artists putting out concert films one after the other, their popularity is being checked by the way their films are done. While the pop sensation’s tour documentary ended up breaking records the day it came out, it has now landed another huge achievement.

In fact, not only did her Eras Tour beat Queen Bey’s Renaissance for the top spot, but also other artists like One Direction and Miley Cyrus.

In a recent post on X (formerly Twitter), it was recently revealed that Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour had raked in 92.8 million dollars during its opening weekend. While Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, and One Direction made their way onto the list with their concert films, the pop sensations earnings were way above the rest. Cyrus’ film, Best of Both Worlds, which was second on the list, only brought in 31.1 million dollars.

After the ‘Flowers’ singer was Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never with 29 million dollars. While the films may have been huge when they came out years ago, Swift’s film ended up dominating all of them. Even Beyoncé’s Renaissance wound up ranking at number 4 with 21 million dollars. The last one on the list was This Is Us from the former boy band, One Direction.
