Ronnie Wood Defends Rolling Stones Ticket Prices
The guitarist has said that the band don't feel bad about the price of a ticket for the shows at the O2 Arena (November 25, 29) and Newark Prudential Center (December 13, 15) as they've already spent millions on the gigs. Wood said: "We've already spent a million on rehearsing in Paris. And the stage is going to be another few million. And the lights. We feel no bad thing about ticket prices. We've got to make something." Tickets for the London shows range from £90 to a deluxe VIP package priced at £950, which has left many fans frustrated as they cannot afford to fork out to see the legendary group. Previously, Keith Richards claimed the ticket prices which will see the band personally pocket around £16 million were "about right to us". However, he added: "I just wanna do some shows and I don't want to charge over the bloody top." Last week, it was revealed Ronnie Wood will be joined at the altar by Keith Richards and Rod Stewart when he gets married for the third time. As previously reported, Wood will marry Sally Humphreys next year. Newspaper reports suggest that The Rolling Stones guitarist will take the unusual step of having three best men on his big day with Keith Richards and Rod Stewart filling two of the three spots and one of Wood's three sons filling the final slot. The wedding will come after Ronnie joins his Rolling Stones bandmates the O2 Arena shows and two shows in New York in December. It was confirmed last week that one of the New Jersey dates will be broadcast in the UK by Sky Box Office. Thanks to NME for the report.
