    Surprisingly, they have a wide range of prices, or at least they did on the 2021 tour.  I bought floor GA for...$180-ish?  Upper deck, top level was something like $80 + fees.  I think you'll be surprised...

    wow for the 2018 tour, we paid $400 USD per ticket (which was face value) in Seattle for the first section on the side about 10 rows up, so about as good as you can get if your sitting in the sides.    It would of been $500 USD face to have pit tickets in the front section.

    I guess this is a challenge with stadium shows for me.  The overwhelming majority of tickets are worse than the worst arena tickets.   I don't really go to shows to watch the screen, so I like to be close enough I can actually see the band playing.  All stems from the U2 Popmart tour where we were so far back I couldn't tell Edge was the one singing an amazing solo version of Sunday Bloody Sunday :)

    also, I chose wrong. If we had ponied up the extra $100usd for pit tickets, I would of met Matt Cameron as he was watching the show from the pit.

    yes you’re right Zod; the highest priced tickets in 2021 were the side seats of the stadiums and PIT.  I think these shows will be available if people want to go though!

    definitely, that is the bonus of stadium shows.  There are price points for every one. It's only an issue if you want to be close :)

    "Private jets belonging to 200 celebrities, CEOs, oligarchs and billionaires have spent a combined total of 11 years in the air since the start of 2022."
    "Among the most polluting jets covered by the list was a Boeing 767 wide-body aircraft owned by the Rolling Stones. It emitted an estimated 5,046 tonnes of CO2, the equivalent of someone taking 1,763 return flights from London to New York City in economy class."






    “The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man [or woman] who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”
    Variously credited to Mark Twain or Edward Abbey.

    Stadiums are by far the worst venues.  Maybe 10% of the seats are better than the worst seats at an arena.

    They sell a limited number of "Lucky Dip" tickets that you pick up at will call on show day.   The seat locations are scattered all throughout the venue and cost around $50-$75 each.

    In the past, they were sold via a link on their website.

    yah.. the older we get the more reluctant we are to go to stadium shows.  It definitely impacts our decision process now.

    I guess it's tough, because with each passing year it seems like there are less surviving veteran rock acts (at least ones capable of playing arena and stadium shows).   It seems like more of the surviving bands are trying to play stadium shows over arena shows.

    It's like.. do I need to go see that band for the 6th time to see them do a stadium.... argh.. hmm. meh..

    that being said, if I hadn't gone to see them 5 years ago in Seattle, i'd be all over the Vancouver show.  They were one of the few big remaing rock bands on my bucket lists that are capable of touring.

    I will go see Stones and Bruce in a stadium if I have to do it, just because it's usually the only option. That's definitely the case for the Stone.  The last few times I saw Bruce, I got to him in small venues; Baltimore Arena and JPJ in Charlottesville.  I was lucky to see him in places that are 15k and less. Usually here on the east coast, it's all stadiums.

    True^^^a certain rawness locked in there that can't easily be captured. Read somewhere that ventilator blues was created because the room they were recording in was hot with bad 'ventilation'. 
    Of all the variety of music I like, Stones always win (up to whenever they got poppy) Was thrilled when pj played waiting on a friend at a show I was at. 
    Never saw them live, but don't really care to.

    Enjoy all that go! Get me a guitar pick.

    I may try for that one as well. I hate going to Metlife though. Such a pain in the ass to get home from there. Took me over 2 hours to get back to NYC after the RHCP concert with all the people waiting for the train. It only took 40 minutes to get there. So, I am still debating.

    Maybe we can see the Stones while we're on the Pearl Jam Tour?(I'm looking at Las Vegas, if the Rumored West Coast May Dates are close. Stones are in Vegas May 11th).

    MetLife does suck, was ranked worst nfl stadium by the players … mainly due to the shitty injury prone Turf

    It’s boring architecturally compared to the latest batch of nfl stadiums… shame they had no one say hey it’s just a modern Giants stadium

    the west side stadium would have been the shit

    Anyone looking to go to Houston or Chicago, it looks like there's a glitch and tickets are live for these 2 shows.
