In second place was AC/DC, who garnered an impressive $114 million, while Beyonce Knowles has made $87 million. Bruce Springsteen proved he is still The Boss with $70 million, while pop sensation Britney Spears rounds out the top five biggest earners with $64 million.

Beyonce's husband Jay-Z is three behind her at six with $63 million.
