Surprised Hayley Williams is worth 8 million. I know Paramore is pretty popular, but it's not like they headline arena tours.

These numbers seem to be a bit inflated...

This seems like FUZZY math at best.

Restaurants and Margaritaville products. Not to mention, he plays gigantic arenas like MSG.

Some of these are surprising, like the Papa Roach guy.

Good for Jacoby from Papa Roach making the list. I knew PR was popular but wow, good for him!!

What venues were they headlining a few years back? Always felt like that band was ginormous.

Blake Solomon 11/16/12 11:17 AM

is this per year? or total current fortune?

Just to clarify: Their net worth doesn't necessarily mean liquid assets. I suspect most of that money is tied up in long term (10-30 year) bonds, and some real estate. Also, the article could be factoring in the intrinsic value of the brand to which they've built - much like owning the name Apple or McDonalds has value in and of itself.

it's gotta be their total worth, like as if they were to die and all their estates and contracts and whatnot were all put together on top of their current amounts and earnings

impressive that Mark and Tom are worth that much, although I would have expected Tom to be worth much more.

Those numbers should shut the people up who think Blink got back together cuz they needed the money.

Last time I saw Paramore a few years back was at DeltaPlex in Grand Rapids, which can probably hold about 5K. I know when they headlined the Honda Civic tour in 2010 they played at Meadow Brook Music Festival for the Michigan date. Both Blink and Fall Out Boy played DTE music theater when they headlined, which is one of the biggest venues in MI.
