P!nk coming  for Taylors neck:jonny5: 

I feel like Taylor will have the highest grossing female tour of all time and the highest grossing female artist of all time overall over the years to come. But Beyonce will be head to head with her. Both of them seems to be the most ambitious main pop girls of our generation. 

 

Taylor is a Capricorn Rising with 3 planets so even when she starts a family she would still be a workaholic. :eli:

Beyoncé with the least amount of dates in the top 10 :worship:if only she tried a huge tour she would be crushing the competition.

Why are not using adjusted numbers? This seems not fair because $100m in early 00s matters more than $200m this decade.

n other words, $100,000,000 in 2000 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $148,401,858.30 in 2019, a difference of $48,401,858.30 over 19 years.

I said it as example. Because 00s market wasn't touring market, while everything these days is about tours.
