Paul McCartney tops list of Britain’s richest musicians

At the top are Paul McCartney, U2 and Andrew Lloyd Webber Sunday times Rich List for musicians from UK and Ireland.

Beatles star McCartney’s net worth is reported at £865million, with the publication reporting he has gained £45million since 2021.

Bono’s Dublin band is said to be worth £625m and composer and theater owner Lloyd Webber is said to be worth £495m. The latter’s net worth actually fell by £30million last year due to the impact of the pandemic on the theater industry.

Police star and solo artist Sting, who is fifth on the list, has seen his biggest wealth gain since last year.

With a £100million increase, his net worth totals £320million, thanks in part to his Las Vegas residency since November last year. He also sold his music catalog, including albums he recorded with The Police, to Universal in February 2022.

Former One Direction singer and solo artist Harry Styles is the richest young musician (under 30) with a fortune of £100m.

He is followed by singer-songwriter Dua Lipa and girl band Little Mix, both of whom have net worth of £60million.

Robert Watts, the compiler of the Sunday times Rich List, said: “Selling their music rights has proven extremely lucrative for many of the older acts on the Music Rich List – particularly those who have had quiet pandemics.

“We expect many of these singers and bands to return to post Covid touring will earn well this year and next.”

He added: “It seems old musicians never retire, they just get richer. Another golden year for Ed Sheeran leads us to believe that in time he could make Paul McCartney Britain’s first billionaire musician.”
