According to the Forbes list Katy Perry brought in $AU114 million last financial year pretty much thanks to her Witness: The Tour.

She played roughly 80 shows and raked in around $AU1.4 million for each show. Bonkers right??

Katy Perry also found time to act as a judge on American Idol which meant she earned somewhere around $AU27.5 million for that gig.. 

Taylor Swift came in second place on the list, taking home $A$110 million. This was mostly due to her triumphant return to social media with the launch of her Reputation album. The new release sold roughly two million copies worldwide in its opening week alone.
