With the New York leg of the Rolling Stones 50th anniversary tour going on sale tomorrow (26 October), British fans are flocking to viagogo, the world's largest ticket marketplace, to find tickets for the two stateside shows in December.
Taking into account the healthy exchange rate and the deals to be had on flights across the pond, savvy UK fans could bag a trip to the Big Apple, including US Rolling Stones tickets, flights and Christmas shopping money, for less than some of the top tier tickets being advertised to see the band at London's O2 Arena.
Since the Rolling Stones' two London tour dates sold out in a record-breaking seven minutes last Friday, viagogo has seen more than 170,000 searches from the UK for the American dates.
