The Pink Floyd singer and guitarist's 30-show Rattle That Lock tour took gross box-office receipts of $31m (£24m) last year. Gilmour, 71, lives in West Sussex with his wife, the novelist Polly Samson, who wrote the lyrics for much of her husband’s latest album. One of their sons, Gabriel, had a small part in ITV’s period drama series Downton Abbey. The musician's two companies, David Gilmour Music and David Gilmour Overseas, paid him £36m from 1988 to 1999, and showed net assets of £8.4m in 2015-16.
