As a Rolling Stones song says: "...you can't always get what you want...you get what you need..."
Well apparently The Stones get what they want AND need...like big bucks for their recent mini tour.
Yes Mick & The Boys scored $38.4 million in ticket sales from their 5 comeback concerts last year.
The Stones performed the shows as part of their 50 and Counting Anniversary Tour, with two shows in London, one in New York and two in New Jersey.
The shows sold out within minutes of going on sale, and tickets ranged from around $145 to $1,500!
According to Billboard.com, the Stones sold a total of 364,864 tickets for the brief run.
In the wake of a down turned U.S. economy, The Stones were heavily criticized for the high prices, but guitarist Ronnie Wood justified the ticket prices by claiming it was costing them millions to stage their concerts.
With appearances by Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Lady Gaga, the Black Keys and John Mayer, as well as former bandmates Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor, it's no wonder that those tickets were a little pricey.
Guess Mick must NEED a new mansion...or does he just WANT one?
