It looks like the return of the Rolling Stones to London isn’t going over without a bit of controversy with some of the fans outraged over the Rolling Stones ticket prices. With the poor economy over in Europe some fans cannot see paying the equivalent of about $100 to $800 to see the Stones live for their 50th anniversary tour.
So far there hasn’t been much of a reaction in the U.S. over the high Rolling Stones ticket prices even with the top ticket running double the $400 price from the 2007 tour. But U.K. fans have also been complaining about the extraordinarily high ticket prices for the Rolling Stones on ticket broker sites with some of the best seats running in the thousands. Unfortuantley it’s a matter of supply and demand and more shows would help keep the prices down.
With the limited number of seats available at the O2 Arena most fans won’t even have a chance to secure seats without going through the secondary ticket market anyway. The only hope is when the Stones return in 2013 with a complete “50 and Counting” tour schedule that ticket prices will be cheaper with the addition of outdoor stadium concerts.
