The Rolling Stones announce New York tour date

The Rolling Stones have announced plans to play the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on December 8.

The show will come after the band's gigs at London's O2 Arena on November 25 and 29, and before their previously announced shows in New Jersey at the Prudential Center in Newark on December 13 and 15.

Tickets for the new date will go on sale November 19.

Mick Jagger recently spoke to Billboard about the high ticket prices for the band's forthcoming shows, saying they are so costly because the band's gigs are "expensive to put on".

Jagger said: "You might say, 'The tickets are too expensive' - well, it's a very expensive show to put on, just to do four shows, because normally you do a hundred shows and you'd have the same expenses."

He continued: "So, yes, it's expensive. But most of the tickets go for a higher price than we've sold them for, so you can see the market is there. We don't participate in the profit. If a ticket costs 250 quid, let's imagine, and goes for 1,000 quid, I just want to point out that we don't get that difference."
