    I purchased for Chicago and it says “test.”  It will be interesting to see if my tickets are delivered or card is charged. Either way, thanks for the heads up!  Only have to try for Seattle next week now if this works!

    Any success scoring tickets so far? What are the ticket prices?
  • steven87steven87 Posts: 1,031
    I looked at the ticket prices for decent seats at metlife and Philly and went no, no, no. I’m saving it up for PJ instead. Also, metlife is probably my least favorite concert venue ever. I’ve been to several shows there and every time it has taken me at minimum an hour (usually longer) just to get out of the parking lot after the show. Saw the chili peppers there last year and it took me close to two hours just to get out of East Rutherford. Crazy!

    I could have got tickets, but the prices were too rich for my blood.  In previous years they released lucky dip tickets for the general onsite where you paid something stupid like 80/pair and it was a lottery where you may get two in the nosebleeds, or 2 right up front or anywhere between.   I am hoping that trend continues and will try again on Friday.  But at 100 for a single nosebleed I will skip

    Tickets for Chicago were pretty pricy, think I will pass.
  • vant0037vant0037 Posts: 6,058
    Oofda. Well I got (3) THREE PIT A tickets for Seattle.  Long story, but the presale access was unusually bumpy for me through the TM app, finally got in and found (1) PIT A for face, and (1) PIT A for the Start Me Up Package.  Got those, and then went back in, and found (1) more PIT A for face.  So now I have (3) and I'd love to sell the Start Me Up package, because, well, who needs all that other stuff. Haha.

    Anyone going to Seattle and wants to work something out for a PIT A for face, let me know!

    How much is the PIT going for? 

    Like some here, I'm leaning on saving my money for Pearl Jam Tour.
  • vant0037vant0037 Posts: 6,058
    Face value for front pit was $545.  Rear GA was $155 (cheaper than a PJ ticket!)

    Got my pair of Lucky Dips for Glendale for just under $81 with fees and everything. Not too shabby. Now hopefully the ticket gods smile on me and hook me up with pit tickets when I pick them up.

    https://rollingstones.com/tour/

    It looks like they're currently sold out, but sometimes they release a few more.
  • Yeesh, 500-700 to actually see them. And 200-400 to watch them on the field's big screen. 

    Pass for me. Looks like they learned from Taylor and figured they might as well dive right into the aftermarket pricing.

    Yeah, I just checked this morning and they are Sold Out.

    I'll keep checking.

    Thanks for the Info.

    I mean, even before Covid we paid $400 USD to be on the side closish to the stage it was $500 for the pit.   The've always been expensive.  Probably because they're the most veteran band, and veteran bands command $$ :(

    High ticket prices for the Stones started on the Voodoo Lounge tour. They were charging $35/ticket for Steel Wheels tour in 1989 and saw what they were selling for on the secondary market, so they figured why shouldn't that $ go to us. I think tix for the Voodoo Lounge tour were around $100.

    I saw The Jimi Hendrix Hendrix/ The Buddy Miles Express/ Dino Valenti  at Winterland in 1968 for (I'm pretty sure it was) $4 and was maybe 30 feet back from the stage.   About the same deal to see The Who/ Blue Cheer in '68, Jan Jose Civic, second row.
    In today's money, that would be about $35 per ticket.

    Concert prices today are ridiculous.

    They are, but I often wonder if bands of old underpriced their shows.  That was the entire reason scalping worked.  Bands underpriced their shows and scalpers could sell for profit.  It seems people are willing to pay big $$ for experiences.

    Also concerts in 1969 probably cost a fraction of what they do now.  Not defending Ticketmaster etc; but ticket prices 50 years ago is a little like comparing the ability to view sporting events from then and now.  It’s just very very different. I’m not sure a comparison between the two is helpful to sorting out the frustration with pricing now.

    Well, it's true that the "extravaganza factor" has increased. Even for big acts like Hendrix and The Who, stage props were generally not a big thing, if any at all.  Light shows were basically created with spots, color gels in stage lights, and overhead projectors using oils and colors to create incredible stage lighting.

    I always though those shows were amazing.  A nice light show, some seriously great music- that's all we needed or wanted.

    Times have changed, for sure. 
    And I don't mean to be disparaging or unhelpful in my comments, but I just don't understand why virtually all of today's big acts are so bloody expensive and, for that matter, why people are willing to pay as much as they do.  And not just for show tickets.  Merch these days is outrageously expensive.  At most shows at places like the Fillmore, and Winterland, posters could be had for pocket change (and often were free at the door), and amazing handbills- smaller reproductions of the show posters- were always free.

    Yep. True BL.  And good for those that want to/can pay. I think 2010 pj tix were 79 bucks.. but hot dang. Prices for fuel alone must have gone way up. So fans pay. 
    Yes. It's a different animal. Even 14 years ago.
    Stones should be hot, so enjoy all who r goin to a go-go.

    My favorite band I'll never see and don't care.  Just spin my beat up old records and take a nap!!

    Same here, somewhat sorry to say.  I would have wanted to see them early on with Brian Jones still around or, maybe better yet, during the Mick Taylor years.  
    I had a chance to see them play at the infamous Altamont Free Concert.  One of my roommates was going and asked if I wanted to go with him.  It was pretty much last-minute and I decided to pass.  My roommate got back home the next day dead tired and bummed- not because he had witnessed to carnage near the state, but because by the time he got there he was way far back from the stage and even at that distance, the vibe was awful.  No regrets having missing that show!

    When I was a kid I really wanted to see the Steel Wheels tour.  It's the first memory I have a band tour being an actual thing, and wanting to go so bad.  I was maybe 11 or 12 at the time, so never happened, but I finally got to see them in 2018. I had a pretty good time at the show.  Like most of the best concerts you need the crowd to be on fire just as much or if not more than the band.  It was a pretty good show.   We might have paid 400usd for tickets, but I'm glad we went.   Ticket prices will keep me from going this time, but I'm glad I got to see them once.

    I kick myself for not seeing them back then. I was clueless and figured they would just be playing new stuff. Plus...I thought they were too old. I skipped a few great bands back then for the same reason. Crazy that they are still out there and I want to see them again. I saw them in 2015 at the Indy Speedway....great show.

    When I was a kid I really wanted to see the Steel Wheels tour.  It's the first memory I have a band tour being an actual thing, and wanting to go so bad.  I was maybe 11 or 12 at the time, so never happened, but I finally got to see them in 2018. I had a pretty good time at the show.  Like most of the best concerts you need the crowd to be on fire just as much or if not more than the band.  It was a pretty good show.   We might have paid 400usd for tickets, but I'm glad we went.   Ticket prices will keep me from going this time, but I'm glad I got to see them once.
    I kick myself for not seeing them back then. I was clueless and figured they would just be playing new stuff. Plus...I thought they were too old. I skipped a few great bands back then for the same reason. Crazy that they are still out there and I want to see them again. I saw them in 2015 at the Indy Speedway....great show.
    The scary thing for me now, is some of those veteran acts I did get to see in the late 90's/early 00's like Black Sabbath, The Who, Neil Young etc.. I think they were younger at that time, than Pearl Jam is now, and yah we thought they were old at the time.. lol.   I guess the Stones are kind of the litmus test of how long can a band really stretch out a career.  It's been 60 years now?  That's going to be hard to top.
