Last Chance to See... Not at Those Prices, Matey!

The Rolling Stones have recently passed their 50th Anniversary as a rockin' teenage combo and are commemorating this with a tour of sorts, featuring two nights at the O2 Arena in London. The cheapest tickets are £106 (£95 plus booking fee); the most expensive is £406. In case any of you chumps out there are considering going along to this event I feel I should warn you that they are not as good as they used to be. More like a dodgy grandad combo, notwithstanding Sir Jagger's admirable physical fitness. He never was much of a singer and he hasn't improved. Keef was the business for a while but no longer - just look at his arthritic, gnarled fingers - and he can barely put a coherent sentence together. If Ron Wood can stay off the sauce he might stay in tune. Charlie seems a tad lifeless, even more so than twenty years ago. They can't possibly need the money, so maybe it's a sentimental delusion. In which case, why charge such high prices?
