Keith Richards defends Rolling Stones ticket prices

Keith Richards has insisted the Rolling Stones are trying to keep the costs of their concert tickets reasonable amidst ongoing questions regarding the pricing structure of their 50 And Counting tour.

“From my point of view, it’s like this: We say we want to put a Stones tour together and people come to us with proposals and these proposals are all basically the same,” Richards has told Rolling Stone.

“We actually did push down the prices a little bit. We took the lower offer, in other words. But, it’s the price of the market. I don’t really know.”

The group immediately faced criticism when a live comeback was announced late last year, with some VIP packages for dates in London costing the best part of £1000.

Since then, reports have suggested rates were brought down for a gig in Los Angeles earlier this month to ensure the venue sold out – claims denied by promoters.

“I don’t have much to do with it other than I would like people to get in, to be able to afford to get in, without sort of starving their babies and all,” Richards concludes. “And that’s about it.”
