It's been revealed just how much taxpayers could’ve ended up paying the Rolling Stones to come to Adelaide in 2013.
A leaked document shows $1 million, plus an extra $250,000 to promote it was put aside.
But the State Government’s sticking to its story that they only handed over $450,000 at the time.
The Stones announced plans to launch concerts at the new Adelaide Oval in March 2014, but postponed it until October after the death of L’Wren Scott, Mick Jagger’s girlfriend.
The band also made money from tickets sold which got as high as $510.
