U2 Made A Ridiculous Amount Of Money In 2017

James Fenton

Love ’em or hate ’em, ya have to admire U2 for continuously bringing home the bacon.

The Irish rockers have been named as the highest musical earners in the U.S. for 2017, according to Billboard. The foursome made a whopping $54.4 million throughout the year, most of which came from their 28-date Joshua Tree tour.

Recorded work earned the lads $2.4 million, thanks largely to their album Songs of Experience being bundled with the 2018 Experience + Innocence Tour. The album sold 186,000 copies in its first year of release.

Not bad work if you can get it.
