Get ready to see these end of year lists popping up like crazy as we get closer to ringing in 2019! 

It's cool to look back and reflect on what music and concerts were THE shows to see this year. 

Every year Forbes does the math to come up with this list. What musicians made the most bank in 2018?

10 Highest Paid Musicians for 2018

1. U2 ($118 million)

2. Coldplay ($115.5 million)

3. Ed Sheeran ($110 million)

4. Bruno Mars ($100 million)

5. Katy Perry ($83 million)

6. Taylor Swift ($80 million)

7. JAY-Z ($76.5 million)

8. Guns N' Roses ($71 million)

9. Roger Waters ($68 million)

10. Diddy ($64 million)

I think the biggest shocker on that list is that Katy Perry who's been fairly quiet this year beat out Taylor Swift who was on her Reputation Tour. Also, Beyonce is not on the list, but her husband, Jay-Z is... hmmm????

See the rest of the list below.
