Their Satanic Majesties take over Madrid in a big way. Tickets for the concert at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium on June 25 as part of their '14 On Fire' tour sold out in a few short hours (thanks in part to the much-cursed 'virtual queue'). And it's no wonder. This chance to see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards , Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood on stage together in Spain could be one of the last. That explains why 54,000 tickets were sold at exhorbitant prices, ranging from €85 on the 'cheap' end and skyrocketing up to €225 – and that's not even counting the VIP ticket packs, and resales that could exceed €1,500. What recession?

Jagger and his band of merry men will perform for three generations of fans, who are sure to hear such blockbuster hits as 'Gimme Shelter', 'Paint It Black', '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction' and 'It's Only Rock 'n' Roll', among zillions of others, along with new jewels and plenty of surprises. If you're one of the lucky ticketholders, get in the mood with the acclaimed documentary 'Crossfire Hurricane' and their latest compilation album, 'GRRR!'.
