Following the news, fans have taken to Twitter to rant about the band's ticket prices.
One fan, posted: ''So the Rolling Stones are playing the O2 in London next month. As much as I'd love to go, at £106 for cheapest ticket they can feck off''
Others added: ''Cheapest ticket for the Rolling Stones show is £106. Floor seated are £406. Ouch! I love the Rolling Stones, & they've always been expensive. But now they're just a band for rich people.''
The band hinted earlier this year that they would reunite to coincide with the band's 50th anniversary. Also rumours that The Rolling Stones could headline Glastonbury in 2013 have been making the rounds. The annual festival sold out last week in record time.
