Rolling Stones gigs will cost fans

The Rolling Stones have confirmed their first live shows for five years - but fans face shelling out hundreds of pounds to catch a glimpse of the rock veterans at some of the most expensive gigs of all time.

The band will play two nights at London's O2 arena with standard tickets costing up to £375, although some will be priced at £90.

The top price figure dwarfs the cost of the five-day ticket for Glastonbury Festival next year which costs £205.

And some "VIP hospitality" tickets are to cost £950 for the Stones shows next month, to mark the group's 50th anniversary.

There had been speculation for weeks that the group would announce shows before the year was out and they finally revealed they will play four shows - two in London and two at the Prudential Centre in New Jersey. Frontman Sir Mick Jagger hinted that more dates would be lined up next year.

The group's four core members - Sir Mick, guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood and drummer Charlie Watts - now have a combined age of 273 years and many will see these shows as possibly their last chance to see the band live.

In August it was reported that promoters were to pay the Stones around £16 million for the four forthcoming concerts.

The London shows take place on November 25 and 29, while the New Jersey shows are lined up for December 13 and 15.

In a video message the group said: "Soon we'll be back on stage playing for you in two cities that know how to rock and roll."

And Sir Mick added: "Maybe a few friends joining us."
