The Rolling Stones are rolling in the money

They haven’t had a hit song in years, but The Rolling Stones are demanding up to $1900 for some tickets to their 50th anniversary show – leaving fans outraged.

The band are playing two gigs at London’s O2 Arena plus two more in New Jersey the following month. The band is set to rake in around $31 million from the four performances.

Cheaper seats are available, but they are very far away from the stage and still cost around $208.

The band is certainly not strapped for cash, grossing $3.5 billion since 1989, with frontman Mick Jagger worth at least $392 million alone.

His co-writer Keith Richards is estimated to be worth $343 million thanks to the tax benefits of living in the US.

Charlie Watts, who does not receive song-writing royalties, is worth just under $196 million, while Ronnie Wood, is worth about $98 million.

What would you pay for a ticket?
