Fans share fury at Rolling Stones ticket prices

Thursday October 18, 2012

With price tags which go into the thousands, tickets for the latest Rolling Stones tour have not gone down well with fans. 

General admission to see the band on their Doom and Gloom tour range £95 to a whopping £375.

Priority tickets have already been released for the November 25 and 29 concerts, and have sold for as much as £13,000. 

The band's latest single has only ranked at number 74 in the UK charts.

One fan wrote on Facebook: "just tried to buy a couple of tickets for the Rolling Stones at the O2 next month but didn't proceed when I found out the price - an incredible £1,302."

Adding: "these prices are a joke. To expect this sort of money just makes me lose a lot of respect for these guys."

A spokesman for promoter Virgin Live said: "these four shows are very special gigs to mark a unique occasion and milestone in the Rolling Stones' history.

"The ticket prices are in fact spread over a range of costs and are comparable and similar to other huge shows and attractions."

The remaining available tickets will be on sale from this Friday.
