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

If we consider the three bands that headlined the SARS benefit concert in 2003 - Stones, AC/DC, Rush - it's both crazy and sad to think that 17 years later, only one of those bands hasn't had a member pass away and it's the oldest one of all.

Hoping I can make the rescheduled dates this time. Having to change my plans last year really fucked me up since I couldn’t keep the Lucky Dip tickets I had, and ended up spending a ton more for the gigs I ended up at, particularly opening night in Chicago.

I hope we'll get rescheduled dates at all.. Many virologists say this virus might be around for up to 2 years.. And at their age, you can't make plans for that far away and they are the target group of old people with reduced immune system 

Maybe 2019 was the last time we saw the Rolling Stones, but then they definitely ended on a high

The Stones never sell out immediately. But they always get asses in seats by gig day. 

I believe the industry term for that is a walk up, like certain bands have a big walk up.  Some shit like that.  Like walk up tickets.

Probably their only performance this year

Mick and Ronnie carried this one, Charlie's air drumming was funny but Keith should have been higher in the mix 

Can't really tell what he plays there, apart from his backing vocals, which were great

“Walk up” specifically refers to tickets bought at the venue at show time - that’s not quite how the Stones do it. They play games so they can try and say every show is sold out in advance sales. Tickets for Stones shows are typically on a flexible pricing scale - the price on a ticket when they go on sale isn’t necessarily the price it will sell for closer to the gig. Let’s say there’s tickets for $399 at the on sale date - if those tickets are still available in the weeks leading up to the gig, you may see those same tickets for $250 or something. The other big trick they use is the Lucky Dip tickets. They’ll do more drops of Lucky Dips in the last several days before a show if there’s still a significant number of tickets to shift. At $29 per ticket, it’s guaranteed to sell out.

Watched it. It was cool, but wish it was longer and had some more deep cuts. The only remotely deep cuts were Out Of Control and You Got The Silver, both of which have been played a fair bit still since 2012.

I was hoping for a lot more than ole ole ole extras before it was announced. Thought it may have had some footage from the licks tour. I caught 2 shows on that tour and they were brilliant. 
 

Anyone gone for refunds for their stones tickets? I only had 1 show and have held off on the refund but it looks like it ain’t happening anytime this year or maybe next...
