The Rolling Stones joke about "cheap seats" at O2 show

By
The Rolling Stones have joked about the price of tickets at the opening show of their 50th anniversary tour.

Mick Jagger, who played a 23-song setlist alongside all the original members of the band, addressed the issue of expensive tickets at the gig, which took place at London's O2 Arena.
He said: "How's everyone in the cheap seats? The problem is they're not so cheap!"

It was recently reported that thousands of tickets were left unsold for the two shows after online ticket agencies were reselling the seats at up to £3000.

Tickets - originally priced between £190 and £400 - sold out within seven minutes, however many were bought by resellers such as Via GoGo, Seatwave and Double8 Tickets to sell at an inflated price.

Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood previously defended the original ticket prices, arguing: "We've spent a million on rehearsing and and the stage is going to be another few million - and the lights."
