After the grumbling that they were having to pay to see the band they were supporting comes a statement tonight, apologising for saying so:

We are sorry for the comments made concerning Rolling Stones ticket prices. We now realise Kasabian as a support band do not have to pay to see the Rolling Stones perform.”

“We are incredibly honoured and excited to be supporting the Stones on some of their European dates - it's like a dream come true for all of us.”

Curious - that's quite an extraordinary wrong end of a stick that Tom Meighan had there: we wonder how he came up with what seems to be such an odd idea.

We also wonder who demanded the, ah, clairification.

Doesn't, of course, stop the tax avoiding Rolling Stones overcharging everyone else.
