Are they still gonna charge $600 or are they gonna cut to the chase and offer the last-minute reductions right from the git go?

Wow, this is the location/show I wanted originally....Major pain in the ass now due to work schedule and taking time off for Philly shows. Wish the Stones would have annouced this with the original tour dates. Time to rethink things and how I can pull this show off....Great news though regardless!!

Kind of annoyed. I liked the thought of my Philly 2 show being the final US show, but I guess thats just out of selfishness. I'm happy for the people in that area though. IMO, thats better than another NY show. I'm from the NY area, but we got our shows here.

They just played Brooklyn and NJ. The only difference between those dates and these is that there are no $85 tickets. I'm from that area, so yeah MSG would be easier this time around, but you and I both had the chance to go back in December to a New York area show. I agree its weird, but they've played this market already, and we got 3 shows. Makes absolute sense they are going to other places and aren't coming back. UK is only getting more shows because they are festivals.

Agreed. I can only guess since they were here in December, that is why, because aside from that I agree there's really no other logical reason they are skipping the legendary venue that they have played every chance they get.

I would really like to go to this show since it could be the very last USA show ever. What do you think the chances are that they will add another show in the US before leaving for Hyde Park and Glastobury???

So that's the 18th show then!

I'd say unlikely. 1, they seem to say DC is the final US show, and from the beginning they said it would only be 18 North American dates. 2, there isn't much time between June 24 and June 29 (Glastonbury) to do another show. They typically give themselves 3 days in between shows, and since they are going over to Europe between these two, 5 days to get themselves settled makes sense.

I agree though, I was getting happy that Philly 2 was looking like the possible last Stones US show ever.

They should have an auction for all seats with bids beginning at $1.00.
That would be the only legitimate way to see how much people are willing to pay.
Sure the Pit might reach the $1,000 mark for several tickets, but I bet all nosebleeds wouldn't go past $50 at most.

Unlike Facebook, no reference to "the last time".



THE ROLLING STONES ADD THE FINAL SHOW OF NORTH AMERICAN TOUR JUNE 24* – WASHINGTON D.C. VERIZON CENTER Tickets On Sale Monday May 13 10am

Rhe Rolling Stones, who kicked off their 50 & Counting tour to a sold out crowd at STAPLES Center on Friday May 3, have added another show date to their summer tour. The band will perform at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. for one night only on Monday, June 24*, 2013.

50 & Counting continues the exhilarating celebration of the band’s first 50 years—five decades of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood bringing their iconic music and groundbreaking stage shows to audiences around the globe.

Tickets for the Washington DC show go on sale Monday May 13 at 10AM EST and will be available at www.rollingstones.com/tickets. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning Friday May 10 at 10AM EST through Citi’s Private Pass Program. For complete presale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com.

They do not speak of it as the final show. Could The Stones end up their north-american career elesewhere than the MSG ? But do to poor sales it could be.

I may go to this show, I need to weigh my options.

I live close to Toronto, about 2 and a half hours away. DC is over 8 hours away. Boston and Philly are closer, but all 4 of those dates are a bust for me.

Should I go for $85 tickets for DC, and potentially drive that far for god-awful seats, or should I hold out my luck that Toronto gets a price drop to the $168 tickets at the last minute? I can really only afford to do one show, unless they end up doing another bath of $85's for both Toronto shows.

I'm taking a gamble no matter what I do I guess. What do you guys think would be my best choice?

That was the show I wanted to go to but not now.

The LA show felt so much more like the start of a real Rolling Stones tour than the NY/NJ/UK shows did. MSG is simply a later date this real tour.
