U2 Tops Forbes' List Of Top-Earning Musicians Of 2010

Forbes listed the world's top-earning musicians of 2010 (June 2009 through June 2010), and U2 owns this list with $130 million, over $15 million more than second-place AC/DC (really? AC/DC?!). U2 made $10 million in gross tickets sales on each tour stop. EACH STOP. Makes sense when you're playing to crowds that look like this at the Rose Bowl:


Here's the Top 10:
1. U2 - $130 million
2. AC/DC - $114 million
3. Beyonce - $87 million
4. Bruce Springsteen - $70 million
5. Britney Spears - $64 million
6. Jay-Z - $63 million
7. Lady Gaga - $62 million
8. Madonna - $58 million
9. Kenny Chesney - $50 million
10t. Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Toby Keith - $48 million
