Adele rockets up rich list as wealth grows to £125m

By Joe Nerssessian

Adele is now the richest musician under 30 in Britain and Ireland, according to the latest edition of The Sunday Times Rich List.

The Hello singer's global success has rocketed her wealth to a cool £125m - an increase of almost 50% in the past year alone.

She is the 19th richest musician - and only solo female artist - in the Music Millionaires list, which is topped by 74-year-old former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell, who are worth a combined £780m.

Second in the list is Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber, who boasts £740m in 2017.

The highest increase on the list comes from Irish rock band U2 in third place, who saw their wealth grow by £48m to £548m.
