18. The Rolling Stones – $66.5 million
Surely, after earning $66.5 million in a year, grizzled rockers The Rolling Stones have at last found satisfaction? Even more mind-boggling is that this total was earned from just 27 stadium shows. Mick and Keith may be in their 70s, but they can still pack the house.
17. AC/DC – $67.5 million
AC/DC have been around for over 40 years, but these dudes apparently still have the ability to shake you all night long. They pulled in $67.5 million from their recent tour, due in large part to Guns N’ Roses star Axl Rose coming on board after singer Brian Johnson fell ill.
16. Roger Federer – $68 million
Truly one of the tennis greats, Federer has earned $98 million of prize money since starting out. In 2016 he was unable to compete in the French Open due to back problems – but no matter, he still earned $68 million, largely because of sponsorship deals with Nike, Mercedes-Benz and Rolex.
