Times aren’t too hard for U2 with the Sunday Times Rich List suggesting that the chaps are collectively worth £428 million.
That’s mere peanuts though compared to the UK and Irish music industry’s top earner, Warner Music Group owner Len Blavatnik, who has £10 billion in the bank.
The Richest Young Musician – “young” here being under 30 – is Adele with £45 million. In joint fourth with the rest of his One Direction bandmates is Niall Horan who has £14 m on deposit. Belfast's Katie Melua is eleventh with £12 m.
The full Sunday Times Rich List will be published by the paper on Sunday.
