Rolling Stones tickets selling for thousands

WENN

Tickets for the Rolling Stones' gigs in London are selling for thousands of dollars days before the public can officially get their hands on seats.

The rockers are set to return to the stage next month  for the first time in five years to mark the band's 50th anniversary, and they've announced two shows at the British capital's O2 Arena and two December concerts at the Prudential Center in New Jersey.

Find: Rolling Stones tickets

But British fans have been left outraged by the high price of tickets for the London shows, which start at more than $160 for the cheapest seats. Tickets for the London gigs have been made available early for fan club members and sponsors, and seats are already selling for high prices online a full day before they go on general sale. Resale website Getmein.com is listing some tickets for as much as $21,120, while others are being offered from between $589.60 and $17,600.

Tickets are also being sold off on auction website eBay.com for as much as $9,600. The band will play London on Nov. 25 and 26, and in New Jersey on Dec. 13 and 15. Tickets for the U.S. shows will be released to the public on Oct. 26.

yeah, its a shame these groups hang on beyond their time......and we all know at least 75% of the time its for the money. When I saw them they were fantastic. There's no way I would see them now for any price. I'd rather keep the memories from another time.

I wonder if the tour will be sponsored by Geritol or Metamucil? Maybe a special appearance by the ' help I've fallen and I can't get up! " lady.
