    Hotel? Sleep in a tent. Or in your car. Lol.

    Question.  I have RS tickets for Chicago but thinking about selling them and putting that money toward seeing PJ in Chicago instead.  I already have tickets for PJ in Indy (where I live).  I can't really afford both Chicago shows with the hotel expenses, etc.  So I need to pick one.  I'm literally 50/50 on this.  PJ is my favorite band.  RS are top 5 for me.  Seen PJ only once in my life, which is a dam shame.  Never seen the RS.  WTF do I do?
    I've seen PJ thirty times and I just saw the Stones for the first time a few weeks ago.  If you absolutely can only do one of these shows- see the Stones.  They are 80- time is running out.

    I've seen PJ thirty times and I just saw the Stones for the first time a few weeks ago.  If you absolutely can only do one of these shows- see the Stones.  They are 80- time is running out.  
    So we were in London in 2018 for PJ, both nights.  Night 1 was an OK show, but Ed was off.  Night 2…gets cancelled.  Rewind to 3 months before when I am literally torn to shreds about even going to night 2, because that same night, the Stones are playing London across town.  The Stones!  In London!  I’m soooo torn because in terms of catalogue - forgive me - in terms of groove and songwriting and sneer and pure energetic shit that gets stuck in my soul - ducks! - I’d pick the Stones over PJ 99/100 days. So I was already feeling torn as hell by not going.

    So when PJ cancelled night 2, we got some nosebleeds for the Stones…in London, had a wild night, saw a great show, and have not regretted it one second.  I’ve seen PJ 30 times too, and I am so glad it all unfolded that way.

    The moral of this story is: never travel to see a band to a place you wouldn’t also visit on its own. Show cancelled in London?  We saw the Stones.

    My two cents: pick the Stones.

    Then I remembered, Stones in Cleveland 2 hrs away from Burgettown Pa where RP is playing that same night...

    Eat Ramen, sleep in the car, and do both :)
    I would do this if it was just me. But the wife isn’t going to go for that.

    Both is what I’m leaning toward. It won’t break me financially. It’s just a lot and I’m a cheapskate by nature!

    I was there too.  One of the best shows I've ever seen and I can't believe I considered selling my tickets!
