2017 Was Very Kind To Sir Paul

Paul McCartney is routinely one of music's richest, and often THE richest, star. And his 2017 “One On One” Tour is not likely to hurt that status.

McCartney has reported a total tour gross of $132 million from 37 concerts performed from April through December around the world, with a total of 907,610 tickets sold. McCartney and his band played on four continents during the trek, including three sold-out shows during late April at the Tokyo Dome for 143,826 fans and grossing $22.8 million.

McCartney started the “One On One” Tour during 2016. He has not yet announced any tour dates for 2018.
