Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Mick Jagger’s bands are the music industry’s biggest earners.

Figures for 2017 show the veterans out-performed singers less than half their age including Ed Sheeran.

Jagger, 74, and his band raked in £116 for every person at their 14 sold-out stadium shows.

And Beatles legend Macca, 75, is only just behind them, pocketing £108 per seat for 36 performances.But despite starring on an 111-gig tour, Sheeran, 26, bagged an average fee of just £60.

The list was published by Pollstar, which compiles figures for box office gig earnings. Jeff Kelly, of US entertainment PR firm JDMC, said: “The Stones and Sir Paul are the biggest draws still after over 50 years of touring, which is an astonishing feat.”
