Tickets for The Rolling Stones' comeback gigs in London are selling for thousands of pounds days before the public can officially get their hands on seats.

The rockers are set to return to the stage next month (Nov12) for the first time in five years to mark the band's 50th anniversary, and they've announced two shows at the British capital's O2 Arena, and two December (12) concerts at the Prudential Center in New Jersey.

But British fans have been left outraged by the high price of tickets for the London shows, which start at more than $160 (£100) for the cheapest seats.

Tickets for the London gigs have been made available early for fan club members and sponsors - and seats are already selling for high prices online a full day before they go on general sale.

Re-sale website Getmein.com is listing some tickets for as much as $21,120 (£13,200), while others are being offered from between $589.60 (£368.50) and $17,600 (£11,000).

Tickets are also being sold off on auction website eBay.com for as much as $9,600 (£5,999.99).

The band will play London on 25 and 29 November and in New Jersey on 13 and 15 December.

Tickets for the U.S. shows will be released to the public on 26 October (12).
