High Priced Tickets not Selling
Posted by: rambler44 ()
Date: April 17, 2013 00:48

There are plenty of $450 and $600 Seats left for most of the US Shows. I was able to get 4 $600 seats for multiple shows if I wanted. This is really just a shame that they priced so many people out of the shows. And then at those prices Jagger still plans to deliver a show pretty much void of rare gems and will trot out the same hits we have all seen over and over again.

No other Artist does this. Springsteen charges $100-$125 for his shows,plays 35 songs a night and digs very deep in his catalogue. Even McCartney's top ticket was $250 and again 35 song set with liberal mix of big hits and rarities.

I am sorry to say it but the Stones deserve every bit of the backlash they are getting.

Wouldn't it be funny if they announced, "to reward our existing loyal fans, we're releasing an additional 10000 tickets for each show at the $85 level!".

That'd piss a few people off!

I am hoping maybe they add some more dates down here.... I didnt think it likely but maybe this is a sign. I know they hate KC, but maybe they could play Omaha.... I suppose I would make that drive, again,

If ed·i·ble means-

Fit to be eaten



Why not just say eatable.

Ever see this Euell Gibbons parody from the Carol Burnett show, with John Byner as EG [at 4:04]?

"Ever try eatin' some pebbles?.... And occasionally, I make a meal out of a birch table."





There was also one year a Euell Gibbons parody with Tim Conway, where he shows up at someone's house and starts devouring all the nature-derived items.

"I'm gonna eat your garage!...."
