To see the Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary shows in London and New York, fans are shelling out at least $150 per ticket—but a lucky few hundred got to see a $20 "warm-up" gig in Paris yesterday.

You'd think by now one or two of us would be sitting down, but we're not," the 69-year-old Mick Jagger told the crowd at a 700-capacity Parisian venue, the Trabendo, Reuters reports. Said a fan: "It was a very small room and they were running all over the stage ... they seemed really happy." (Read more Mick Jagger stories.)
