Stones earn staggering $50.5 million for private party


The Rolling Stones earned a staggering $50.5 million for performing at a private party.

The legendary British rockers raked in nearly $62,000 per minute for their 80-minute set when they entertained 500 guests at a Deutsche Bank party at Barcelona's Catalan National Art Museum.

Frontman Sir Mick Jagger finished the show by jokingly telling the crowd, "Thank you for having us. The best part is that it is coming out of your bonuses!"
