Though he can surely sell some of the clothes off — which he’s done in the past — if needed to foot the tax bill, it doesn’t seem like it would be a huge issue for him to cover. The singer’s on pace to head on another tour in support of his new album.
This time, he’ll be hitting dates across Europe. So far, the majority of the shows are sold out, including four dates in London, two in Amsterdam, and another two in Paris. The demand was so high that he added more dates. Needless to say, he’ll be caking it once the tour is over.
