I really don't like concerts with over 3000 people. Saw the Stones once in an Stadium and had a miserable experience. Never again.

I´ve seen them in theatres, arenas, fields and stadiums.
Except for the fields, I love them all.

Stadiums are fantastic if you are close to the band
(but you have to see Charlie!) and 70.000 behind you.
Stade De France, London Stadium, Giants Stadium,
Olympiastadion München and Berlin....all fantastic
experiences when the band gets everyone out of their
seats. I love that.

Bobby Dodd at Georgia Tech was okay in 2015. I had Lucky Dip and was on top but it was the side that was lower than the other so it was much closer to the side of the stage than most stadiums. And it was cool and mostly dry that night.

But, I agree with the op for the most part. The Stones are such an investment these days I would much prefer an arena or at worst a dome where climate control is guaranteed.

I also agree that sheds are the worst. It would have to be something unique to get me to go back to one. I have traveled more to see an artist at a different type of venue.

Agreed. Stadiums are probably the worst place to experience a concert.

You're spot on Aqua, the music is the last thing to be celebrated. I've come away from stadium shows which I have enjoyed but truthfully couldn't tell you if the artist had played well or not and that includes The Stones!

That's true, Rollingstone. You walk off the stadium, you may have had a good experience, but you're thinking "it would be great to watch a DVD of the show so I can see how it was really like!"...

Stone-relics: I remember you as the number one Stones collector. I understand your sentiments. You have every right to feel that way. Don't mind the idiots making stupid remarks.
They don't know what they are talking about. I heard you have sold most of your collection. I hope you made a good deal out of it.

Please, stay on the forum. For old times sake or just for the banter. You don't have to worship every version of The Rolling Stones to be here. Some only appreciates the Taylor years for instance...
I hope you're doing well anyway.

Lol...another merged thread Stoneage. Looks like your 0 for 2 in recent weeks in your quest to start a new thread. Or is it 0 for 3? grinning smiley

Meanwhile, back on topic to complaining about ticket prices, setlists, etc. in which I have to admit I have no complaints whatsoever for this current tour (so far) which is actually surprising!
I sort of miss having something to whine about lol, but for the most part the Stones have done no wrong on this tour...SEE THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH WHILE YOU CAN!!!

I suppose I can go over to the new album thread and vent out some pessimism and misery....winking smiley...15 years and counting!

No complaints from me. Yes the ticket prices are obscene but that’s what Lucky Dips are for. I’ve Lucky dipped 12 shows out of my last 15, starting with Paris Nanterre 1 & 2. Pleased with my results. Most recent was Section 342 at Chicago 1.

Yep, all my threads merges up here Hairball. Except my Homeland thread. Maybe BV missed that one?

Not sure about the Homeland thread Stoneage (I don't recall ever seeing it in the first place), but I think your roll call thread still exists?!!!

Ticket-Prices - Beatles vs. Stones:

At the NoFilter-Tour 2017/18 the Stones charged € 799.00 for the Pit-Ticket in Germany. In 2020 the FOS-Ticket for Paul McCartney costs now (due to Dynamic Pricing) officially € 1,132.00:


Hanover (Germany), HDI-Arena, 4-Jun-2020 -- [www.Eventim.de]


[For comparison: the minimum wage in Germany in 2020 is € 9.35 per hour]

If the Stones sold tickets at $10 each then they would sell out immediately, and scalpers would sell them on at $500 or more. There is no easy fix for selling out a stadium show with 50,000 tickets at super-low prices. Also, somebody have to pay for fivde star hotels and all of the cost of large touring parties. This goes for all bands. Stones, McCartney, they do all bring family and a large entourage. Also, they have a market value the scalpers will ask for if tickets are underpriced. I just wonder how cheap tickets are expected to stay cheap in a commercial market.

The only way to address the inflated secondary market would be ID checks on each ticket and resale only through box office/ticket vendor. That's what they are doing for Clapton's Ginger Baker Tribute where tickets are appx 100GBP at EventimIM Apollo with 3500 seats. Can't really imagine checking ID and the logistics of 60,000 tickets. It is bad enough having to coordinate getting my group of friends together for a small venue since I luckily scored a full allotment of tickets.

ID checking and control of sales related to popular products will always be a challenge.

It is illegal to sell alcohol to "kids" all over the world (21 years of age in USA, 18 in Norway and so on). Yet kids all over the world are drunk whenever they like.

Same with tickets, same with everything else in a commercial market. It is a dream that cheap tickets will flow easily to the poor fans, while people with money will stay at home watching the video.
