They are the most consistent rock n roll band there ever was.  With the exception of The Beatles, they are probably the best to ever do it.  Musically, lyrically and all levels superior to any band I

Went to last night's show. Incredible. It was so awesome and for the first 15 minutes or so, surreal feeling, to be seeing The Rolling Stones with my naked eyes. I had nosebleeds because money is tigh

Going to try for the $85 pot luck tickets for both Boston shows.....if I don't score it will be the first tour I miss since 75

Unacceptable.

:P

Yeah I know but can't justify paying the crazy prices for shitty seats when I had 5th row for the Fenway opener for $150......I have been spoiled the last few tours with excellent seats....

see the Stones last year

Ok, you get a pass.
:awesomeface:

If I can get some dirt cheap tickets the day before/of the gig, I'll do a Toronto show still. Last year I saw pairs of Newark tickets for like $115 and up the day before and day of the gigs.

Where did you see those prices?.......if I don't score I may go down to the arena day of show and try my luck scalping or at the box office right before the show...worked for me in the past......

Tickets prices are ridiculous, my god.

Pretty much the way I feel unless I score the mystery tickets tomorrow

eBay. I couldn't just up and go to Newark during exams though.

I've been looking at prices on eBay a bit, and they're already much more reasonable on there than last year. I've seen plenty of upper bowl seats for $200, and my upper bowl seats were over $400 with StubHub fees for Brooklyn...

Yeah you can have luck on ebay as the concert gets closer...I have also had luck buying tickets for less than face value outside the venue the night of the show but you ahve to be careful of counterfeits as I got burned once.

I also was able to score 5th row seat tickets at the box office 15 minutes before show time but it is a crap shoot and you have to be prepared to go home empty handed.

Pfftt... he'd be falling all over himself to get to the arena on time if the Stones tapped him as the openeing act.

Or even for a guest appearance...

He's hyping his own tour with that response.

Kid is charging 20 bucks a ticket and doing everything to get those tickets straight into fans' hands. The man is taking a HUGE haircut on possible revenue to do that. He puts his money where is mouth is. The Stones put their mouths where their money is. Nothing against the dudes for filling the coffers while they can, but don't trash Kid for this. He's really doing it.

Kid Rock's been doing the casino circuit for a while, this is just taking other casino circuit bands and playing bigger venues, but the Stones have sponsors and still charge more than everyone else. I don't think Streisand or the Eagles had sponsors.

And there's nothing wrong with casino circuit bands, the sound systems are usually really good and have a good time at the shows, and stuff to do after the show's over. Sometimes going to an arena feels like a complete rip off.

Sorry man :(

I agree it was poorly done. Maybe I had better lucky because the tickets weren't sold through ticketmaster, they were through the venue website.

Either way, I'm not expecting to get the surprise of being in GA whenever I get to the venue, but it would be amazing. If not, I just hope I don't get the shittest seats in the venue when I get there.

Yeah the $85 thing was very poorly advertised. First I just went to Ticketmaster but there weren't any options until The Stones posted directed links on Facebook and then I realized all the $85 ticket links were on their website which I didn't even think to check. I remember their Facebook posting an hour after tickets went on sale for Toronto that there were still $85 tickets left at that point. Considering there was only 1000, it shows that people really didn't know where to go for it. I got mine right away so here's hoping my seats are great because of it!

Yeah it was a half an hour before I was able to get into the Boston $85 ticket links. I just kept hitting that link button and it finally came up....I'm thinking they wanted to sell all the regularly priced seats before they offered the cheap seats?...would be nice to get decent seats but for $85 just happy to get into both show and keep my Stones tour streak going.......

So, the name on the account for the venue that I ordered my tickets through is in my mom's name, but the email is mine as well as the credit card info that the tickets were bought with, but we can't pick up the tickets without my mom being there. I was planning on her probably going to one of the two, but now it's kind of mandatory for her to go to both because of the way they have this set up. Fucking bullshit because now my dad can't go. Unbelievable.

Not trashing his tour.

He'd be beside himself to be associated with the Stones tour if given the nod...don't kid yourself.

I'd only pay $600 if Mick Taylor and Bill Wyman played the whole show, or at least Mick Taylor.

I mean otherwise, what separates this tour from any post Bill Wyman tour, really, except that the Stones are just really old now?
