Tickets for the newly-announced Rolling Stones gigs taking place in London in November are being sold for thousands of pounds on secondary ticketing websites, even though they are only supposed to be available for a special pre-sale window to AmEx customers.

Sites like Seatwave and Viagogo are already selling tickets for between £300 and £11,000 each.

The cheapest tickets, on the O2's Level 4, are going for £309 - these have a face value of £90 (£106 with booking fees).

On Seatwave, the best floor tickets are being sold for a whopping £11,000 each - these have a face value of £375.

Official tickets are due to be made available to O2 mobile customers and subscribers to the Stones Archive mailing list from Wednesday (October 17) and will go on sale to the general public this Friday (October 19).

As part of their 50th anniversary celebrations, the rock icons will play at London’s O2 Arena on November 25 and 29. The band will then sail across the pond to perform at Prudential Center, Newark, near New York on December 13 and 15. 

Billboard estimates that the four arena shows will earn the quartet a total of £15.7million. Their last tour in 2007, A Bigger Band two-year tour, which passed through The O2 Arena in London was the secon highest-grossing music tour in history as it pulled in £347 million.

Their new single Doom and Gloom premiered on BBC Radio 2 last week and was simultaneously made available to download.
