Sure, we mentioned that we were going to stick to contemporary musicians’ net worth to not overstate the obvious. But this one is worth mentioning considering who Angus Young and AC/DC are in the rock world and reaching the top 5 of the highest-grossing tours of all time with $478 million during their Black Ice World tour, Young’s net worth is actually the same as Metallica’s Kirk Hammett with $140 million. You’d assume that someone with Young’s status would be way above that and we’ve seen constantly how great AC/DC do during their tours, but it appears that the expenses of their shows and management are the ones taking most of that.
