Front row seats.

If money is not an issue, (It's is, but assumming), what will
be the best way to get guaranteed front seats for the next tour?

And how much could those tickets go for?

Lie, cheat, steal, sell granny, sell grandpa, sell dog (no wait, not the dog), sell children, sell Bon Jovi albums (no wait, you wouldn't have those anyway - what am I talking about ?), and generally do what ya gotta do !

I had 2nd row seats for the Nov. '89 Death Valley Stadium, Clemson, SC show - it was friggin' INCREDIBLE being that close. One time Jagger looked right at me and gave me a dirty look cause I yelled super-loudly when he said Keef was about to sing a tune. Whatever front row seats will cost, it's worth it.

I've had nosebleed seats for several shows since then, and it just ain't the same.

In 1994 I paid $250 for front row at the Columbia South Carolina show. We had the best time. I was second row for the B-Stage in Tampa in 99 - for three songs we could see the holes in Keith's shoes. Being that close to them is incredible.

OK guys...the selling of the granny, my bay city rollers album collection and
my crutchless leather spike underwear are all in the plans...don't know
about sleeping with Mick...let me talk to my wife about that...
but how do I go about buying the tickets? What's the best way to buy
guaranteed first (or second) row seats? Ticketmaster????
Does joining the Stones fan club helps? Any tips here...?

I wish I had some advice for ya Chef. Back in '89 my (now ex)wife called to get tickets, since it was for an out of town show. She just happened to call right as tickets were going on sale, and we got lucky.

OK, my wife just approved the sleeping with Mick thing...but only if she
gets to watch. This is getting strange.
I think I will settle for section B103 again, besides, the giant screen is not
that bad after all.

At least you'll be closer to the beer vendors and the bathroom.

Yes, it happens, especially in the US and in GB. I hate it, destroys the athmosphere. Old rich guys with their bored wife are complaining when someone stands up and wanna rock. ARRRGH, cant stand it! Like a musical but no rock concert.

Try to see them in an area where they aren't as popular and where ticket sellers aren't bought out by VIPS. Like Singapore. When they played there for the LIcks tour I was able to get front row for both shows! Just camped out on the internet ten minutes before tickets went on sale and kept logging on until I was able to buy tickets. Got them! Anywhere in the US the whole thing is a big scam and close to impossible to get front row...those tickets are sold way before the general public sale. Sad but true.

How about your wife watching you and Mick go at it one the giant screen?

But the Singapore trip will cost me a bundle, probably enough to buy
the best tickets ticketmaster offers.

There's always Buenos Aires where there are no seats on the ground.
Guess Ill have to get to the stadium like 3 days before the show to
find a good spot at the front.

Oh no, we decided to go Buenos Aires...but I'm sure they'll have some other
fun stuff on the giant screen, they usually do.

Unfortunately, the only way to get front row Stones tickets in the US seems to be:

A: Pay a lot of money.

B: Be an absolute incredibly beautiful young female willing to do whatever it takes.

As mentioned, the whole thing is an absolute scam. Either way expect to get f*cked...... HARD.
