Not ones to put art in the way of a fast buck, they've obediently (it's only rock n roll and i like, er, money more) dropped 5 songs from the setlist at the behest of the Chinese government. The censorship includes Honky Tonk Woman and Let's Spend The Night Together.
While we're on the subject of chopsticks (we were, weren't we?), the Chinese government have put a 5% tax on the national cutlery, to try and cut down on the 45 billion pairs the state makes every year cutting down millions of trees and bamboo plants in the process.
All but the poorest Chinese have welcomed the tax, and some restaurants are now offering non disposable spoons rather than chopsticks, in a bid to get the nation to kick the choppy habit.
The tax was one of a number imposed to tackle environmental issues. 200 million Chinese still live on less than $1 per day. However, its car market is now the world's third biggest - only behind USA and Japan, but catching fast.
Tax on cars with bigger engines has been increased to 20%. One third of China's national oil consumption is used by private car owners.
