Ticket will continue to be an issue, it appears. On-line auctions? What would the delivery be...electronic? Any sites you have used that you trust?

Hi 6s7s9s
How could I get a contact with you? I have something to offer.....

The Tokyo Dome is a typical baseball stadium. Unless you are within the first 25 rows in the sections in front of the stage, you are basically going to watch the monitor. Unlike football stadiums, because of the shape of a baseball field, the stands on the side of the stage are faarrrrr away. But, it is what it is. If you live in Tokyo, why not try and find a desperate seller and buy a stand seat for as cheap as you can get it - even from the nosebleeds, I'd rather be at a Stones show than anywhere else I can think of.

Well, yes I would go if I could get a ticket for 50-100 dollars or so. But the only time I have ever seen the Stones in a dome ( Carrier Dome, Syracuse NY) the sound was so bad that you didn't even know what song they were playing. If I could get a cheap ticket and was sure the sounds would be good I would go.

Will Tokyo shows be sold out?

There are some ticket agencies in Japan and no one has available tickets now.

But I believe that some tickets will be dropped again and again.
Most of those will be nosebleed seats tho.


And more than 1000 tickets are sold on "Yahoo Auction" site but trading is not very active.
Only a few good tickets have some bidders and getting high.
1st and 2nd tier stand tickets are left without a bidder or bought at its face price or even lower.

I'm seeking two tickets for Tokyo Dome on Feb 26th. I can pay cash and pick-up anywhere in the Tokyo metropolitan area. I thought I'd try posting here first before moving on to auctions sites this weekend.

Any tokyo residents here know One Eyed Jack's? It is/was a casino and hostess bar in Roppongi. I worked there for a while in the 90's. Apparently the Stones went in there after playing the Tokyo Dome first time around. Unfortunately they did not visit whilst I was there! Great place, lotsa beautiful girls from around the world, happy days!

Please do not use these pages to sell tickets. There is a separate forum for that here. Thanks.

Foreign hostess club on a side street off Roppongi-Dori, right? Just hostesses, no dancing. I remember it, but I'm pretty sure it's gone. Perhaps the name lives on.

Yes, but as I'm sure you have noticed, there are no tickets being offered in the first 4-5 rows in front of the stage. This leads me to believe that they have not yet sold the tickets that had been reserved for VIP packages. I wonder if they will drop those tickets at some point - maybe if you call Kyodo Tokyo near the date of the show? I suspect they will reclassify them as "GC" tickets and charge 80,000 Yen for them, but who knows. Or, perhaps they will be used for sponsors - that would suck.

That's the one. I tried to find it on Google maps but I think it's a car park now..

I am afraid that these hot tickets for 4th row (the front row) were sold already..Maybe not all of them, surely some of them sold to the regular fans. One of my friends bought it from Kyodo Tokyo on phone....While we all tried to buy these tickets through the web page, he got a front row ticket in A8 by calling up the number listed on that web page we were clicking like hell...

Ahh, I see. I thought of that, but couldn't get through. I'm surprised no one is selling them, though. Were they priced at "S Ticket" prices? I would be willing to pay what I would otherwise pay for a VIP package.

He bought it as a GC ticket. So that would be most likely to be half the price he could possible have paid for a VIP package. Tickets in A8 or A10 seems to be the most expensive on Yahoo auction but it is still a bit cheaper than what you would pay for a VIP package....Good luck and good hunting

eplus start issuing hard tickets includes GC to buyers from Feb 4.
We will see bunch of additional ticket in Yahoo Auction next week.

A8, A10 single digit row will be very little but keep watching.

I thought about buying one of those Eplus GC tickets (issuing Feb 4) on Yahoo Auction - it's just like gambling. But I decided not to take a chance, because Eplus was not a major promoter, so their tickets probably won't be that good, right? What do you think?

I think there is not so much difference between pia and eplus.
But as you say, that is gambling.
I guess more than 75% of generally sold GC tickets are Block B or C. I never bet 80000yen on it.

Right now you can win the bidding of GC seats with a little bit more than the face values. It is a gamble but you must remember that once the ticket is issued and turns out be an A8 or A 10 block one, you would have to win a bidding against those who have kept on looking for the same hot tickets. After Feb 4, the prices of these great seats will jump up on the auction site and the ones of the nose-bleeding seats will freefall definitely.

I know and totally agree.

I might pay 150000 or 200000yen for a super good seat.
But never pay 80000yen for row 30.

I agree 100 percent. I didn't buy GC to begin with because I saw how they use the ramp at Hyde Park. Those seats in B and C block are really overpriced. Now, if they were to come up with a completely new stage that used a B Stage, then maybe those C block tickets would be worth in, but I doubt that will happen.

I was hoping to see more tickets in A6, A7, A11 and A12, but very few. I guess everyone decided to keep their tickets.

for people coming from outside of Japan,

It's too early to go cherry blossom viewing in the end of February.
However, the plum-blossom festival will take place here and there while between the middle of February and the middle of March.

I went for lunch and it was nice. normal business district linch crowd, probably not a lot of Stones fans, but everyone seemed to be enjoying the pictures and the food is good and not expensive (1200 yen or about $11 for a Hamburger steak with rice, salad and soup). Music was turned way down low, but I assume it's because it was lunch time. I am sure they turn it up at night.

I wouldn't go out of my way to go there - it's just a regular bar/restaurant that has put up a ton of posters and photos (the owner has a good collection of photos) and is playing Stones tunes - but if you're in the area, it helps to build anticipation.

Any interesting rare pics from 1969-72 ? Worth a look if the pics are indeed "rare" but there are very few pics from this period that have not already been circulated.
