It’s Jump­ing Jack cash for Stones

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - ■ by CHARLES WADE-PALMER

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.
