In preparation for their 50th-anniversary shows in London and Newark, New Jersey, the Rolling Stones announced a surprise warm-up gig tonight in Paris, with tickets priced at just $20, The Associated Press reports.

Fans quickly swarmed the Champs-Elysées, hoping to snag one of the 350 tickets available. Tickets were limited to two per person, the holder’s name must be printed on the, IDs are required at the door and no cell phones or recording devices are allowed.

The show will mark the Rolling Stones’ first live performance since 2007.
