Ed Sheeran Emerges Highest British Music Earner In 2017

Ed Sheeran Emerges Highest British Music Earner In 2017

Second is theatreland ace Andrew Lloyd Webber, worth £740m.

Elsewhere in the rich list, Sir Paul McCartney has taken the top spot. That, however, includes the assets of his wife, Nancy Shevell, who is the heiress to a huge trucking business.

Singer-songwriter sensation Ed Sheeran has added £28m on to his huge fortune in the previous year.

The 27-year-old singer now has an overall wealth of £80 million, due to the success of his 2017 album ÷ (divide), which was the biggest-selling record in the United Kingdom of that year and the third biggest-selling album of all the time on the chart.

Four-time Major victor McIlroy is reported to have a wealth of £110 million (€124.7m) - a figure which puts him £27m (€30.6m) clear of Andy Murray in second place.

Rita Ora also made a splash this year with 16 million pounds, and Adele remained at the top of the rich list for young musicians with 140 million pounds.

The full Rich List, now in its 30th year, will be published tomorrow in the Sunday Times.

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.

The Fifty Shades Freed actress, 27, has big money deals with Adidas and DKNY.

And pop rocker Robbie Williams also enjoyed a £15m bump up the list bringing his total worth to £165m.

Robert Watts, compiler of The Sunday Times Rich List, said:"For years our music millionaires list has been dominated by older acts, such as the Rolling Stones and Sir Elton John, who have older audiences able to pay a premium to see their favourite acts", he said.

"But some of the biggest risers have been amongst younger acts".
