Sir Paul McCartney is ending his year (11) on a high as official records show the Beatles legend has accumulated almost double his 2010 earnings.
The singer has enjoyed a successful tour in the past 12 months, and wrapped his On The Run shows in his hometown of Liverpool, England on Tuesday night (20Dec11).
Now, documents from his company show MCCartney, who married American heiress Nancy Shevell in October (11), made $46.4 million (£29 million) in 2011, compared with $26.2 million (£16.4 million) last year (10), according to Britain's The Sun.
However, the star paid himself an income of just $1.6 million (£1 million), compared with a previous $10.7 million (£6.7 million) salary and dividend payments in 2010.
