Rolling Stones Fined $320,000 For Breaking Curfew At 02 Arena
The Rolling Stones have reportedly been fined over $320,000 for breaking the curfew at London's O2 Arena. The curfew called for the band to finish their set by 10:30pm but they played for the sell-out crowd until 11pm.
The Sun reports that the band were taken to task over this by the local council, who issued them with the penalty.
"It means a big fine - but the guys just do their thing. There wasn't a janitor standing there, jangling his keys, saying. 'I want to go home'," said the band's agent, Bernard Doherty.
Curfew aside, former Stones members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor joined the band alongside Mary J Blige, who added vocals to "Gimme Shelter," and rocker Jeff Beck, who played guitar on 1969's "I'm Going Down."
