U2 certainly have something to smile about this holiday season. The band placed fourth on the Highest Paid Musicians of 2012 list by Forbes magazine.

U2 earned $78 million, thanks to the massive success of the 360 tour. The overall haul for the three-year run of the tour was an incredible $736 million.

Rapper/producer/Beats headphones creator Dr. Dre topped the list, with earnings listed at $110 million. Thanks to his The Wall Live Tour, Roger Waters of Pink Floyd came in second with $88 million. No stranger to constant touring himself, Elton John rounded out the top three, taking in $80 million.

Other artists who made the list included tween favorites Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber, pulling in $57 million and $55 million, respectively. Lady Gaga appeared at No.11 with $52 million and British rockers Coldplay made No. 18 with $37 million.

An interesting fact about the list, according to Forbes, is that "eight of the top 25 acts hail from England or Ireland."
