Also surprised Bob Dylan isn't worth more.

So wait...Travis is worth more than Mark & Tom? That drummer list had him at $85 million.
That's what surprised me. I guess all his side projects pay off.

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

Most recently, I've seen Paramore headline:

2012: Terminal 5 (3500 capacity, not sold out)
2011: Penn's Landing (10,000 capacity, not sold out)
2009: Hammerstein (4000 capacity, sold out)
2008: Convention Hall (4000 capacity, sold out)
2007: Starland (2500 capacity, sold out)
2007: Knitting Factory (400 capacity, sold out)

I've seen them a few times in other capacities like festivals, but those are their four most recent US headline tours.

They make a LOT more money overseas playing to thousands (and sometimes tens of thousands), and Hayley also makes a good amount independent of what the band makes. She's also probably a lot smarter with her money than a lot of other acts.

Nope, I think i'd be interesting to include all vocalists, rather than making a distinction (that isn't always clear cut) between singers and rappers.

Most big name rappers aren't that well off. The ones that are have a hand in a bunch of other business.

Just off the top of my head, Jay-Z is worth 450 million and P.Diddy is worth 550 million, that'd put them in the upper echelon of wealthy musicians.

I'd be willing to bet they made the vast majority of their wealth pre-reunion.
If anything, the biggest sign validating your statement is that Scott Stapp is apparently worth $30 million.

Pretty much, ha. I'm not trying to be a dick about it. Like I said, I think i'd be interesting to include all vocalists, rather than making a distinction (that isn't always clear cut) between singers and rappers.

No big deal though.
