Singer Adele and Paul McCartney topped the lists of the richest musicians

Rory Mc Ilroy leads young sportsperson rich list

Ed Sheeran made a whopping 28 million pounds previous year, putting his total net worth up to 80 million pounds.

The former Beatles star and his wife, American trucking heiress Nancy Shevell, have a combined fortune of 820 million pounds, or about $1.1 billion, up from their 2017 net worth of 780 million pounds.

Mr Day is one of a record 11 billionaires from the region who feature in the list, which is topped by The Duke of Westminster and his family, who are worth an eye-watering £9.9642bn, up a whopping £444m compared to the previous.

Former Beatle Paul McCartney is the richest musician overall in the United Kingdom, with an estimated worth of $1.1 billion.

Rory McIlroy has been revealed as the richest young sports star in Britain and Ireland, according to the 30th edition of The Sunday Times Rich List. They are followed by U2 ($770 million/£569 million), Elton John ($405 million/£300 million), and Mick Jagger ($352 million/£260 million).

Looked at as a list of young musicians (under 30 years old), Adele is still the wealthiest with £140 million, up by £15 million in a year in which she didn't even tour or release an album.

It's worth noting that the 2018 list of the top 10 richest musicians is the exactly the same as last year's tally, with the exception of Starr, who last year was tied with Flatley. "Streaming services, the internet and income from endorsements are helping today's young musicians build an global following - and with it their fortunes - far quicker than the older rockers".
