Bono isn't worth 700 million. This stemmed from the Facebook deal with Elevation partners... Bono got a fraction of that cash. He's probably worth roundabout the same as the other band members.

Questions could be raised about all the artist figures of course. These are estimates and Celebrity Net Worth is the only site that actually does estimates for nearly everyone, even more obscure artist and celebrities. Another factor is that how wealthy these people are is often determined by how well they invest their money as opposed to how much product they sell. That is why BONO could be worth more than the rest of the band combined, because of his success in investments. The Facebook deal was originally alleged by many to make BONO a BILLIONAIRE. Celebrity Net Worth did not think so. Still, these are all just estimates, but it might be accurate.

Bono is definitely worth more than the other band members and it is because of his investments. The estimates vary a bit from one website to another but Bono is always at around $700 million while the others are more like $200 million, with Edge higher than Adam and Larry.

I find this breakdown fascinating because they split the music profits evenly four ways, yet the one who gave up the most in terms of songwriting royalties still ended up the richest, and the one who gave up the second most still ended up second richest.
