The London dates for The Rolling Stones hotly anticipated 50th anniversary tour sold out in a record breaking seven minutes last week, leading many fans with plans to head across the Atlantic in a bid to see their idols in action.
Tickets for the New York leg of the tour go on sale tomorrow (October 26) and according to one ticket site, Brit fans are expected to snap up a large proportion in a desperate bid to catch the tour.
Viagogo, the world’s largest ticket marketplace, suggest that with the booming exchange rate and high prices back home, it could actually be cheaper to head stateside to see the Stones for their December shows.
Earlier this month, the band announced they would perform four concerts - two in London and two near New York - to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Fans were left shocked by the high ticket prices which ranged from £95 pounds up to as much as £950 for a "VIP hospitality" seat.
Despite the hefty price tag, the London tickets soon sold out last Friday. Since the sale last week viagogo report that they have seen more than 170,000 searches from the UK for the American dates.
Ed Parkinson, viagogo spokesperson said “Brits are jumping at the second chance to see the Stones live – especially now they can bag themselves tickets and a trip to NYC for less than some of tickets being listed to see the band at the O2.”
