The Rolling Stones '50 And Counting' Tour Sold £24 Million Worth Of Tickets
The Rolling Stones sold £24 million worth of tickets for their recent 50 And Counting shows, NME reports. The rock legends' sell-out shows in London on November 25 and 29 (2012) shifted as many as 31,755 tickets. Their US dates at Brooklyn's new Barclays Center on December 8 as well as a two-show stint on December 13 and 15 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, pushed the total number of tickets sold to 364,864 over all five dates, Billboard reports. Over the five dates, the band were joined by a cast and crew of artists including Florence Welch, Mary J Blige, Lady Gaga and Black Keys. Tickets for the band's London shows ranged from £90 to a deluxe VIP package priced at £950, which left many fans frustrated as they could not afford to see the legendary group. Keith Richards claimed the ticket prices - which will see the band personally pocket around £16million 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." Mick Jagger also defended the ticket prices, saying that the shows were "expensive to put on".
