The Rolling Stones announced Wednesday that they will play three concerts in Japan next year. In a message posted on Twitter, the Stones said they will perform at Tokyo Dome on Feb 26, March 4 and March 6, after playing in Abu Dhabi. After Japan, they go to Macau and then on to Australia.

Tickets for the Japan concerts go on sale Jan 18.

The Japan gigs are part of the 14 on Fire Japan Tour. Former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor will be a special guest player with the band.

Lead vocalist Mick Jagger, 70, said in a statement that he can't wait to return to Tokyo.

The cheapest tickets are Y14,000. Good seats are Y18,000. Ouch. I'll just have to give up some other stuff! Very possibly my last chance to see the Strolling Bones!

I don't see the point at those prices. I saw them in '99 at Wembley and that was boring enough. Go out and see some hungry new bands play in a club or live house and listen to the old Stones albums at home.

Last chance to see living legends, seen em twice before but will go and see these dinosaurs one last time for posterity and a final memory of one of the greatest bands of my generation. As for the expensive price of the tickets, well I guess you can't always get what ya want.

Y14,000 - Y18,000 for a seat at the Tokyo Dome (the worst place to hold an indoor concert in Japan)?

Fools and their money ......

Is no-one tired of these geriatrics re-hashing their old songs?

I'm not.

Then enjoy the concert. To me it is a bit creepy seeing them stagger around and hear them singing about their flings with young girls etc etc.

Something is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it, RR, ha ha! Heck, Y18,000 for a decent seat at a Stones concert beats a LOT of other stuff available, ha ha!

Who's the guitarist on the right? It ain't Keef, is it. Probably Mick Taylor.

I'm a fan, but I have to admit, I found one of their more recent concert videos to be quite boring. Having the right medication with a group of fun friends could make the concert enjoyable.

sold out decades ago.

Saw them in London in June, not young its true but still making their brilliant sound. ¥18000 isn't too much to pay, it may be the last chance.

Love 'em. Always have, always will. But I must say, that is exactly what they have been counting on for the last few years from us fans, i.e., the sentiment that "it may just be the last time " .

I guess apart from gambling these tickets are another kind of stupidity tax.

It is indeed.

Y14,000 for The Strolling Bones... in the Twilight Zone perhaps?, queue the music.

Every Japanese person I've ever asked thinks that The Rolling Stones, London's greatest rock export , are American (>_<)

I'd love to see them....

In terms of endearment, M Jagger and I attended the same university, nay decades apart.

However "The Frolicking Groans", a nod to bohemian amorality, sometimes Grandma chuckles wistfully as "The Rolling Stoned" (English irony intact), and Jaggers Twerking (circa 1963), which the tiresome M Cyrus Kangarooed to death, misunderstand the very essence of Jpop culture.

I'd throw ¥14000 if Keef and Co sported those unnecessarily vulgar, eye wateringly tight pink short-shorts so brazenly as the sorry miss Cyrus, but parting with t¥14000 for the "grand canyon" like Tokyo Dome is slightly bonkers.
