Metallica And Guns N’ Roses Make World’s Highest-Paid Celebrities List

Forbes have revealed Metallica and Guns N’ Roses are the richest rockstars in the world today…

Both Metallica and Guns N’ Roses have made The World’s Highest-Paid Celebrities in 2019 list.

The list is compiled yearly by Forbes, and ranks the richest celebrities based on an estimation of their pre-tax earnings based on just one year (from June 1, 2018 to June 1, 2019).

Metallica come in at number 30 on this year’s list, with a whopping $68.5 million piling into their joint bank account, while Guns N’ Roses are a little lower down, with $44 million.

A good chunk of ‘Tallica’s money comes from the fact they’ve grossed over $250 million on their WorldWired Tour since 2016. While Axl Rose and co. have been raking in the profits from their Not In This Lifetime… Tour, which makes them a cool $4 million PER SHOW. Nice.

That’s pretty much small change, though, compared to popstar Taylor Swift, who tops the list with her $185 million pay packet. She’s followed by reality star Kylie Jenner (on $170 million a year) and rapper/clothing designer Kanye West ($150 million).

Right, we’re off to cry into our Tesco Meal deal…
