Doncaster pop sensation Louis Tomlinson is set to earn a share of a staggering £611 million pounds this year.

His band One Direction have been predicted to become the most successful band in the world with earnings of a billion dollars a year.

It is estimated the band will earn the record amount during their upcoming Where We Are tour.

The 88-date tour will see the boys - Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Niall Horan - become the first act to perform three consecutive nights at the 95,000-seat Rose Bowl stadium in California.

Their latest earnings are set to top the £447 million record set by U2 for their 360° tour and they could also beat the £339million earned by The Rolling Stones from their Bigger Bang shows.
