Until now, Madonna had held this title for a whopping 36 years due to her milestone concert at Los Angeles' Anaheim Stadium in 1987 where she performed to 63,000 people.

Madonna broke the record during her second-ever world tour, the Who's That Girl World Tour, which supported her third album 'True Blue', featuring iconic tracks such as 'Papa Don't Preach' and 'Open Your Heart'.

Taylor's concert is a 44-song set divided into 10 sections, one for each era, and lasts three hours and 15 minutes. An Eras Tour show can be up to five hours long including the support acts – wow.
