( – If you want to see the Rolling Stones play Hyde Park in London – a venue they haven’t rocked since 1969 – you can get tickets right in front of the stage for only $12,908.74.  Add in the cost of the booking fee and the price is only marginally more, about $15,254.00.

Because the July 6 show is in London, if you are traveling from the United States, you likely will have to pay an additional $1,300 for a round-trip plane fare from JFK to Heathrow.

The $12,908.74 tickets (8,462.53 BPS) are “Standing” only in the Diamond Circle, which is directly in front of the stage, and are available through the secondary ticket-seller Seatwave. As this story was posted, there were 10 such tickets left available through Seatwave.

The full lot of tickets initially sold out in three minutes, according to British media, but seats can still be obtained through the secondary sellers.

For the more economy minded, there are eight tickets in Diamond Circle Standing at $6,460.83 each and eight more at $6,459.55 each.

General Admission tickets for the show are running between $278.39 and $2,288.10.

If you don’t want to travel to London to see the aging rockers, you can still get tickets for the May 5 show at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif.  As this story went to press, there were still eight tickets left in the Tonguepit, Row GA, at $7,627.00 apiece.
