It’s Jumping Jack cash for Stones
THE prices of these goods won’t give Rolling Stones fans much satisfaction. To mark the comeback of Mick Jagger and his band, Selfridges is selling Stones’ gear at eye-watering prices – from a £350 lampshade to a £7,500 pool table.
Pop-up shops flogged the marked-up merchandise, which included clothes and accessories with jaw-dropping prices, at Selfridges stores in London, Birmingham and Manchester.
A bottle of gin branded with the rock
’n’ roll band’s ‘hot lips’ logo hit the shelves with a £44.99 price tag to tempt thirsty fans with deep pockets.
The lyrics of the band’s Summer Romance – “I’ll be down the pub, probably playing pool and drinking” – look to have inspired the exclusive red and white nine-foot pool table which some fans may want painted black.
The luxury of telling the time on a Stones branded watch would cost you £500, and to get yourself a jewel-encrusted necklace it will be £750.
A £10,000 velvet armchair and a bizarre vinyl bowl were other eye-catching products available, with many more clothes online including a £150 England football shirt.
The Stones’ world tour hits Twickenham stadium on Tuesday, June 19.
