St.  Patrick's Day has been kind to Bono and his world renown group Irish rock band U2.  Between his humanitarian efforts and his musical prowess, Bono has amassed a fortune in fame, generous deeds and cash.  His net worth as part of his money-making ways has reached $1,513,650,000.  

Bono and the band initially got their start by winning a talent contest on St.  Patrick's Day in 1978.  By shrewd planning and heart-rendering singing on the anthem of misfortune, U2 with Bono leading the charge commands the respect if not attention of all music industry executives.  

Paul David Hewson transformed himself in the blue glasses Bono (he wears all sorts of different colored shades) during the late 70s and early 80s.  U2s world wide tours have always been a difficult ticket to get as Bono and the band have built their reputations with 12 stellar albums while accumulating more than 20 Grammys over the course of their existence.  

Bone's social activism has taken on a life of its own.  He and U2 have continuously performed for Live Aid and Band Aid concerts.  In 2002, Bono helped organize a group that included an entity called Project Red, a well-known initiative against disease in Africa.  He is active with AIDS research and other humanitarian activities in every part of the world.

His music, philanthropy and activism has not taken a back seat to his eye on the bottom line of things.  He was an early investor in the concept of Facebook and stands to make a pretty penny if the IPO is successful.  His eye on the business end may put his wealth past some of the world's greatest musicians, including Mick Jagger, Sting and Sir Paul McCartney.  His strategy to move the band's wealth from Ireland to the Netherlands did cause a bit of a dust up, but he continues to watch what money he can keep and not pay in taxes.  

Bono happens to co-own a posh hotel in Dublin called The Clarence.  Beside his music awards, he personally has been nominated for a Nobel Peace prize.  Bono also owns the prestigious title of Sir as a Knight in the United Kingdom.  He was dubbed so by Queen Elizabeth II in 2007.  The list of international awards for his humanitarian efforts continues to pile up.


Bottom Line: By controlling his lifestyle and spending less than he makes, Bono earns $104,550,000 per year after lifestyle, taxes and other expenses.
