About U2

Irish rock band, U2, has a net worth of $838 million. U2 became one of the most popular rock & roll bands of the '80s. They were rock & roll crusaders during an era of synthesized pop and heavy metal, equally known for their sweeping sound as for their grandiose statements about politics and religion.

U2 broke the record for the highest grossing tour in April 2011, taking the title from the Rolling Stones. The globetrotting tour increased the amount earned from the back catalogue, merchandise and airplay to more than £6m a year. Paul Hewson (Bono), Adam Clayton, Dave Evans (the Edge, pictured) and Larry Mullen get about one-fifth of sales each, as does manager Paul McGuinness, who also has an investment portfolio and art. U2’s invested career earnings lift them to £519m.

The ageless rockers are wrapping up the most lucrative tour in the history of music. In April 2011 the group's 360 Tour surpassed the Rolling Stones' Bigger Bang Tour, which grossed $554 million from 2005 to 2007. By the time U2's tour ends in summer 2011, the band will have sold $700 million worth of tickets over two years and played to more than 7 million people.
