Taylor Swift's Reputation tour doesn't even start until May, but it's already bringing in so much money that some predict it will be one of the top-grossing tours of all time.

Billboard reports that sources close to Swift say that she sold a whopping $180 million worth of tickets in the first week that they were available. That's very impressive, but even more so are projections that she could end up selling $450 million by the time Reputation wraps, which Billboard says is a real possibility.

A half a billion dollars is nothing to sniff at, but with news breaking Wednesday that Swift is extending her tour by adding seven new May, July, August, and October shows, that number could rise even higher.

Part of the reason the ticket sales have already grossed so much has to do with the unique way Swift is selling them. Her tickets are priced high from the get-go in order to discourage scalpers and bots from reselling them on secondary sites.

While her previous 1989 tour tickets sold out in seconds, Swift has yet to sell out a single Reputation show, and Billboard confirms that this is likely because of her new selling method.

Swift's Reputation tour begins on May 8 in Glendale, Ariz., and concludes on Nov. 9 in Auckland, New Zealand.
