An upcoming concert by the Rolling Stones in Oslo later this spring sold out in 13 minutes, reports concert arranger Live Nation Norway. The concert, announced last week, will be held at the Telenor Arena at Fornebu just west of Oslo on May 26.

The arena can hold more than 20,000 fans and at least that many Norwegians were willing to pay ticket prices from NOK 915 (USD 152) to NOK 2,525 (USD 420) to see the iconic if aging rock band in person.

The concert featuring Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts, Keith Richards and Ron Wood is part of their “On Fire” tour which will also include a performance at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark in June.

The Stones last played in Oslo in 2007 and first back in 1965. staff
