How Bruce Springsteen’s net worth was built
Bruce Springsteen’s net worth is $345 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. In 2016 alone, Springsteen earned $60.5 million, putting him on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list.
The bulk of Springsteen’s wealth has come from his high-grossing tours and record sales. The New Jersey native has been a member of several bands, including The Castiles, Earth and Steel Mill.
After Columbia Records signed him in 1972, Springsteen gained acclaim for his first album, “Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.,” and for his second album, “The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle.” But it was his third album, “Born to Run,” that made him a commercial success. The album earned an estimated $6.8 million.
His 1984 album, “Born in the U.S.A.,” brought in an estimated $18 million in record sales and $80 million in ticket sales. His most recent tour in 2014 — the High Hopes Tour — earned an estimated $44 million.
