Mick Jagger thought he'd see just how far he could push his audience yesterday during The Rolling Stones' O2 Arena concert in London when he joked about their notoriously expensive tickets.
The legendary rock band performed a set of 23 songs last night at London's famous venue where Jagger, Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts performed in front of 20,000 fans to mark their 50th anniversary.
During the two-hour show, Jagger bravely addressed the eye-wateringly overpriced tickets which were originally priced at £190 and £400, before rising to an incredible £3000.
Jagger said to the audience: "How's everyone in the cheap seats? The problem is they're not so cheap!"
Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood was previously forced to defend the high-priced tickets, saying: "We've spent a million on rehearsing and the stage is going to be another few million - and the lights".
The evening commenced with video messages from celebrities and fans describing the first time they head the Stones, showing exactly why this was the UK’s most sought after ticket as Mic arrived on a Thames river boat, smiling and waving to the adoring crowds.
Marking their 50th anniversary, Mick said: “It took us 50 years to get from Dartford to Greenwich. We feel pretty special. What’s amazing is that we are still doing this and you’re still coming to see us.”
