I didn't know that (Sunday times Rich list)

• Michael Flatley is a musician? I didn’t know that. I thought he just did a lot of dancing around

The 10 richest musicians in the UK and Ireland (2019):

  1. Andrew Lloyd-Webber - £820 million
  2. Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell - £750 million
  3. U2 - £583 million
  4. Sir Elton John - £320 million
  5. Sir Mick Jagger - £275 million
  6. Keith Richards - £260 million
  7. Olivia and Dhani Harrison - £250 million
  8. Sir Ringo Starr - £240 million
  9. Michael Flatley - £204 million
  10. Sting - £200 million

In my opinion, these guys could probably get by on £100m less each

You are correct! Not musicians though are they? Shit list

The way it’s formatted it looked like Keith Harris and Orville were in the top ten

How dare you he is the lord

The lord of dancing

Michael Flatley’s autobiography is amazing, he’s the most charmless and arrogant man in the world, which makes for hilarious reading.

I saw him in Lord of the Dance a couple of years back, it’s an impressive show, he only does one appearance a week now because he can’t keep up anymore, just came out at the end and did a jig, the rest of the crowd went fucking mad, women literally climbing out of their row screaming at him, was brilliant.

mad that Andrew Lloyd-Webber is worth more than Jagger and Richards combined

Why do U2 get grouped together but not Mick n Keith?

Because they are one entity.

i would love to be rich

RIP sweet flat prince

Bono and The Edge have their money squirrelled away separately abroad. This entry is for Adam Clayton and the drummer, who as we all know are a single being.

One entity for tax purposes, based offshore to minimise any payments, that might go towards things like education or healthcare or the stuff that tax is meant to pay for.

In case anyone wants to see some of Flatley’s book, this is the thread for you:
