Taylor Swift’s successful Eras Tour is thanking its team with substantial bonuses. Around 50 truck drivers each received $100,000, confirmed by Entertainment Tonight.

Along with the truck drivers, Entertainment Tonight has confirmed that Swift,  also gave incentives to other crew workers, including as dancers, musicians, lighting and sound professionals, and caterers. The transportation firms for the trip, Upstaging Inc. and Shomotion LLC, have not yet responded to CBS News. Mike Scherkenbach, the CEO of Shomotion, revealed that Swift gave the trucks personal notes along with the incentives.

This weekend marks the conclusion of the U.S. leg of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, which began in March and included songs from several “eras” of her career. According to PollStar, a newspaper for the music business, it had made over $300 million by June after selling 1.1 million tickets at an average cost of $253. According to Forbes, Swift made $110 million from the first 22 gigs of the Eras Tour, with a potential revenue of $1.6 billion.

Swift’s tour was recognized for its contribution to local tourism by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, and numerous localities saw economic growth as a result of her trips.

The tour attracted news before it even began owing to a huge demand for tickets and Ticketmaster technical difficulties. Long lines for tickets and claims of price gouging prompted a lawsuit against Ticketmaster from fans. Following a congressional hearing, Joe Berchtold from Ticketmaster blamed traffic and bots for the problems.

The tour’s enormous success, as seen by merchandising queues, celebrity sightings, and viral social media videos, was expected by the pre-tour ticket rush. Swift is one of the wealthiest self-made women in the United States with an estimated net worth of $740 million. Swift is directing her first feature film, as revealed by Searchlight Pictures, in addition to her music achievements and 12 Grammy awards. This month, she will launch the tour’s international leg in Mexico.
