Jagger defends shows' high prices

The Brown Sugar hitmakers have faced criticism over the cost to see them live at one of the four gigs, with some tickets selling online for as much as $1,600 (£1,000).

Guitarist Ronnie Wood previously justified the price by claiming it was costing the band "millions" to set up the stage, and now frontman Jagger has also spoken out to explain that he makes no profit from fans re-selling tickets for more money.

He told Britain's Daily Express: "We don't participate in the profit. If a ticket costs 250 quid, let's imagine, and goes for 1,000 quid, I just want to point out that we don't get the difference.

"So yes, it is expensive. But most of the tickets go for a higher price than we've sold them for, so you can see the market is there."
