Music legend Van Morrison has sold over 48m albums during a five-decade career. Cash from concerts and royalties keep coming in. The low-profile rocker — knighted last year by the Queen of England — also owns residential properties in Belfast and Bath.

Accumulated profits at his firm last year rocketed more than 12-fold. The profits surge at Morrison's Exile Productions Ltd coincided with the Belfast man playing a number of gigs to celebrate his 70th birthday. His firm generated profits of £2.6m in 2015. Last year, Morrison sold the rights of 33 of his albums to Sony, which represents another big payday for the star.
