The Rolling Stones have only just announced a handful of dates at London’s The O2 at, but the touting machinery has already whirred into action.

As MusicWeek report, floor tickets for the shows on November 25 and November 29 are already going for up to £11,000 apiece on Seatwave and Viagogo. Level 4 tier tickets, meanwhile, are a comparative snip at £309. To make matters worse, the first wave of tickets was supposedly only available to AmEx customers, with general release tickets following at a later date.

In other Stones news, speculation that the band will headline Glastonbury Festival in 2013 has also been exacerbated today, with Keith Richards suggesting that an appearance at Worthy Farm would be an “interesting proposition”. Speaking to BBC 6Music, Richards said  “On a good day, if the weather’s fine, [Glastonbury] is an interesting proposition. The band wants to get these four gigs under their belt and then think about next year after that”. [via The Guardian]
