Legend: Queen’s Freddie Mercury
Their hit Don’t Stop Me Now was named by scientists as the world’s happiest song and the three surviving members of Queen are taking its message to heart, touring Europe before setting off on a tour of the US.
Such a work ethic means the cash is still rolling in, with Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon sharing in a £5.8 million dividend last year, along with the estate of the late Freddie Mercury.
Their company, Queen Productions, manages royalties from their concerts and theatrical shows including the musical We Will Rock You.
Its turnover rose by £6.2 million to £18.6 million in the year to September 30, 2017, after an increase in revenues from Queen Films Ltd and mainstream royalties.
This autumn sees the release of the film Bohemian Rhapsody, starring Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury.
