GLASGOW, Scotland – Keith Richards won't be fined for reportedly lighting up during a Rolling Stones concert in Scotland.
The stage at Hampden Park, where the band performed Friday night on their "A Bigger Bang" tour, is exempt from a new law that bans smoking in enclosed public places, the Glasgow City Council said Monday.
Violators of the new law, which took effect in March, can be fined up to $95. The ban includes theaters and sports venues.
Richards' publicists at LD Communications in London did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
The City Council said it had heard from journalists that the 62-year-old guitarist was smoking during the performance, but it wasn't known whether the journalists had been at the concert.
