U2 highest-paid musicians on Forbes list

Irish rock band U2 topped this year's Forbes magazine list of the highest-paid musicians on Tuesday, thanks in part to the group's successful Joshua Tree world tour celebrating their classic 1987 album.

That tour helped the band collect US$118 million (S$160 million) in pre-tax earnings from June 1 last year to June 1 this year, Reuters quotes the magazine as saying.

The performances featured well-known hits from The Joshua Tree album, including Where The Streets Have No Name, With Or Without You and I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.
