These Are Forbes’ Highest-Paid Musicians

It’s a good day to be Bono as the Irish rocker and his band have topped Forbes’ list of the highest-paid musicians in 2018.
U2 earned $118 million pre-tax from June 1, 2017 to June 1, 2018, while hitting the road for their 30th-anniversary celebration of the Joshua Tree and “Experience + Innocence” tours.
Coming in second place on the magazine’s list, Coldplay, who brought in a cool $115.5 million on their “A Head Full Of Dreams” tour.
Rounding out the Top 3 is Ed Sheeran with $110 million, who enters the list, not from touring alone, but from billions of streams of his music.
