Elton John, George Michael and Mick Jagger were stunned to find they had to pay £100 each to see Madonna in concert in London this month, reported London Metro, July 12, 2001.

Stars traditionally hand out free tickets to their peers, but Madonna refused and charged £100 plus booking fee for the sold-out shows.

Many fans can relate to the high ticket prices!

But it seems there were no hard feelings...Madonna celebrated her first UK show by having a few quiet drinks with showbiz pals Elton John and George Michael, reported the Daily Star on July 6, 2001.
