About

U2 is an Irish rock band with an estimated net worth of $747.58 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. Originally, the group was into post-punk music, but the style eventually evolved throughout their career while maintaining the anthemic quality.

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 catalog, merchandise, and airplay to more than £6m a year. The ageless rockers wrapped 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. At the end of U2's tour in summer 2011, the band sold approximately $700 million worth of tickets in the past two years and played to more than 7 million people.

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.
