Furious fans hoping to be at the Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary gigs in a few weeks have discovered it could cost them thousands of pounds.
Official ticket prices for two shows at London's O2 Arena range from £95 to £375 plus fees, while a "VIP hospitality" ticket was priced at £950.
Priority customers have been able to order some of the tickets, but they do not go on general sale until Friday.
One potential buyer said on Facebook: "Just tried to buy a couple of tickets for the Rolling Stones at the O2 next month but didn't proceed when I found out the price - an incredible £1,302.
"They weren't even particularly special seats. For those you need the VIP package at £950 or £1,900 for two."
There have been reports that one "secondary" ticket site was selling seats for more than £13,000.
And one site dealing in tickets had added a £140 processing fee to the cost of two tickets it was selling for £770, it was reported.
"These prices are a joke," fan Steve Grace wrote in a comment appearing on the official See Tickets website. "To expect this sort of money just makes me lose a lot of respect for these guys."
Drachan Forster added on the site: "Saw them in Rio at a free concert. Was pickpocketed relentlessly throughout, but nothing compares to this fleecing. £246 for some of the worse seated tickets in the house. Disgusting."
Many fans protested online that the band should have rewarded their fans for their loyalty over the last half-century with cheaper shows.
"Considering these guys started off as a working-class set of lads, these prices are well out of reach of the ordinary working man," Chrissi Matusevics posted on Facebook.
American Express customers gained advance access to tickets for the London shows on Monday, followed on Wednesday by subscribers to the band's mailing list and users of Britain's O2 mobile phone network.
A spokesman for promoter Virgin Live said: "These four shows are very special gigs to mark a unique occasion and milestone in the Rolling Stones' history.
"They are a one-off celebration of their 50th anniversary and not part of an extended global tour where substantial production costs can be spread over a lengthy period of shows.
"The ticket prices are in fact spread over a range of costs and are comparable and similar to other huge shows and attractions."
The band will play to 40,000 people during their two nights at the O2 and will play two more shows in Newark, New Jersey, in the US, in December.
US music magazine Billboard reported in August that Mick Jagger and bandmates Charlie Watts, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood will earn a total of \$25m (£15.5m) for the four shows.
The anger comes as the band's first new studio recording for seven years has been unable to persuade many fans to part with 99p for a download, with the song at a lowly number 74 in the charts.
According to midweek sales figures, Doom And Gloom, which went on sale just days ago is a long way from making it into the top 40 on Sunday. The band last made it into the top ten in 1981 with Start Me Up.
