Serbian fans of The Rolling Stones are being allowed to pay for tickets to the band's concert in Belgrade in instalments.
The band have agreed to reduce the cost of tickets to their show August 2 because Serbs earn so little.
But even with the discount the ticket price of £32 pounds is still too much for many fans in the country where the average monthly wage is less than £100.
According to the Serbian daily newspaper Blic, fans will be allowed to pay for the tickets over a six month period.
The Komuna ticket agency says they made the decision because they had to take the country's poor economic circumstances into account.
The Stones agreed to add Belgrade to their tour dates after the Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic personally wrote to Mick Jagger and negotiated with the band's management asking them to come to the country.
Djindjic promised to bring the Stones to the city three years ago following the fall of former dictator Slobodan Milosevic.
