Ahead of the publication of their annual rich list, The Sunday times have released the top music millionaires in the UK and Ireland.
Unsurprisingly after a massive year, Adele has been named Britain’s richest ever female musician, also topping the the Young Music Rich List of artists under 30 with an estimated wealth of £85 million.
The only female to rank higher than the superstar is Irish woman Enya, who came in 28th position with an estimated wealth of £91 million.
Sir Paul McCartney tops the list with a staggering £760 million, with Lord Lloyd-Webber, U2, Sir Elton John and Sir Mick Jagger rounding out the top 5. The combined wealth of the top 5 music millionaires in the UK & Ireland amounts to estimated fortune of almost 2.5 billion.
The early publication of this list signifies that it’s almost that time of the year when the Sunday times reveals their ultimate rich list. The full Sunday Times Rich List will be published by the newspaper on Sunday.
Who will make the cut and will we see any of these musicians below featured again? We’ll post the results as they come in but in the meantime, musical artists from the UK and Ireland are making a significant impact on the world of music, and their estimated wealth is certainly not to be laughed at!
