THE Rolling Stones played an intimate gig for 500 bankers in Spain - and were paid $5.4 million (GBP2.7 million) for their private stage show. The rockers' two year A Bigger Bang tour is said to be one of the longest and highest grossing ever, having pulled in over $436 million (GBP218 million) to date. But that didn't stop the musicians supplementing their income with an 80-minute set at a party organised by Deutsche Bank in the Catalan National Art Museum in Barcelona, Spain last week (12Jul07). And frontman Mick Jagger admitted he was delighted to be earning so much from the wealthy bankers. He told the crowd, "Thank you for having us. The best part is, it's coming out of your bonuses."
