LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — After the Rolling Stones broke curfew for their 50th anniversary gig in London on Sunday, the group may have exposed themselves to some pretty steep fines.
According to London's Sun Newspaper, the show was scheduled to close out at 10:30 PM but the band played their encores out until 11:05 PM, which exposes the band to a fine of £200,000 pounds, or about $320,000.
"It means a big fine — but the guys just do their thing," Stones agent Bernard Doherty told The Sun. Fortunately for the band, as of yet, no fine has officially been levied against the band.
The Stones join a growing list of artists who have run afoul of the curfew recently. In July, Sir Paul McCartney joined Bruce Springsteen and the E Streeters on stage during a concert in Hyde Park, only to have promoters pull the plug mid-song at 10:30. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
