The Rolling Stones

Turns out it was lucky The Rolling Stones were charging so much for tickets to their two O2 Arena shows, because they’ve been fined £200,000 by Greenwich Council for playing 35 minutes past their 10.30pm curfew.

The band’s spokesman Bernard Doherty told The Sun: “It means a big fine – but the guys just do their thing. [And] there wasn’t a janitor standing there, jangling his keys, saying ‘I want to go home’”. The band are due to return to The O2 for another show tomorrow. Of course they’ve set the bar high now and will have to play at least an hour after curfew to top the weekend’s show. Those rule-breaking scamps.
