Retired pop singer George Michael had in the past complained that he was a "pop slave" working hard, but he now gets up to 1.6 million pounds ($2.25 million) for just one hour.
Michael earned a total of 48,499,893 pounds from touring between April 2006 and March 2008, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Most of the money was made by singing for very wealthy people. He had not performed for almost 15 years when he returned in 2006.
Michael's earnings were revealed for the first time in accounts published for his touring company Twentyfive Live.
