What kind of crazy ass pricing results in prices for seats behind the pit costing 5x pit tickets?!

I believe the VVIP tkts include transportation to and from Hong Kong by plane or high speed boat plus all the regular perks.

The VVIP seating is mega-expensive given that (if Chinese fans are like fans elsewhere) the VVIPs are going to be standing anyway. And could have bought pit standing tickets for a fraction of the price. confused smiley

The Venetian is somewhat expensive. I booked a room at the Sheraton across the street for around $130 US.

I have heard that there are no entrance/exit visa stamps into/out of Macau anymore. Can anyone confirm? I have a few pages in the passport but would like to squeeze in another trip after the show. No stamps = no sending my passport back to the UK for an extortionate overpriced renewal.

Also, are free shuttle buses from the Airport/Ferry terminal to the Venetian still running? Very convenient if they are!

Whether you need a visa or not depends on your nationality. You can easily find out using a search engine!

I'm not asking if I need a visa for Macau (I don't), i'm asking if they still stamp in passports as they were in the process of phasing it out the last time I was there. In Hong Kong you now get a slip of paper on landing which you then have to hand in when departing. The passport does not get any stamp action.

On a side note, it seems that all of the tickets (except $14880 ones of course!) for sale in Macau have now sold out smiling smiley

Question for mandu and anyone else with tickets in hand for Macau - please could you confirm that anyone with a ticket can gain entry to the show on the day without having to show the credit card used to purchase the tickets?

Thanks in advance for your help. I'm just asking because on threads about other shows, there is a suggestion that the credit card might be a condition of entry.

No stamp at Macau immigration since last July. You don't need annoying.
And there are free buses from/to the ferry terminal. I don't know about the airport.

Important question about the MACAU show - please help
Posted by: paulywaul ()
Date: January 16, 2014 10:46

This question has been asked on the Macau show thread, but not as yet answered. So here goes again ...........

(1) Does anyone know whether one of the conditions of sale for the Macau show is that before entry into the venue - people will be asked for some form of ID, or else perhaps to show the credit card used to purchase the ticket(s) ?

A further question:

(2) To those people that have bought tickets for this show, did Cotai Ticketing (the primary vendor) send tickets out by post, or are they operating on the basis of tickets being collected from the venue and/or designated collection points within Hong Kong & Macau ?

If anyone can provide answers to these specific questions, it would be appreciated.

Thanks

I am not sure about other tickets, but for the tongue pit ticket I purchased, the email from Cotai Ticketing said that I need to pick up the ticket at certain select box offices at the Venitian or the Sands. ID is required for pickup, but I am not sure about entering the Arena, as I have never been there.

DTC Travel in Bangkok still have available hotel/concert packages for the Macau gig on March 9th starting from baht 24,000 (GBP 450) per person.
This gives a B category seat and double or twinshare room at Holiday Inn for 2 nights (8 and 9 March).
No singles available. Must be twin sharing or double bed. They also throw in a Macau City tour as part of the deal.

A category seat packages selling at Baht 34000 (GBP 640) per person with accommodation at The Venetian or The Conrad

Check out www.dtctravel.com/rolling-stones-macau
Stones Macau Concert Packages

You can also speak with DTC Travel Brit owner, Tom Bishop.
use the office number on their website

Remember, Cotai Arena only has a 15,000 capacity, so by Stones standards, it will be small. Great !!

Hi,
Can anyone recommend whether to fly into Macau (from Tokyo) or instead to fly into Hong Kong and then take the ferry to Macau? With the ferry, would it run back after the show, or is it better to stay at a hotel in Macau.

Thanks in advance!

Angie -I'm no expert. I'm from Boston US and headed to the show. I DO know that the Cotai Water jet schedule for March is not expected until early Feb. (I had written them). My 'opinion' (again - not ever having been) is if you can stay in Macau it might make for a better night - rather than worrying about getting back to HK after the show. Seems like there is a lot happening there at Macau - the Venetian appears to be huge. I'm staying nearby at a Sheraton - quite a bit cheaper than The Venetian, but walking distance.

Not only Cotai pier, there are much more turbojet service between Hongkong and Macau Outer Harbour terminal.

[www.turbojet.com.hk]


And you can take a free shuttle bus from terminal to Venetian. It runs every 10-15 minutes between 9AM to 23PM.


Cotai/Taipa is newly developed area and very artificial. It is hard to feel atmospheres of china.
If you would like to feel it and hanging around downtown, you should go to peninsula side.

You can see it even on google maps.smiling smiley

Hmm ...........

[www.viagogo.co.uk]

Me thinks me wait, and if me wait ..... me will eventually be able to buy pit ticket for something approaching face value, which let us remind ourselves was HK$ 3080 (USD$ 397 or GBP£ 240).

Twiddle twiddle .........

I've never heard of anyone flying into Macau; do they even have flights from Tokyo? The Ferry runs constantly during the day and they even run during the middle of the night. It's easy - They do NOT want to make it difficult for people to get to the casinos. I've never done it, but if you have the courage, the helicopter is the fastest way to Macau from Hong Kong and it apparently quite a spectacular journey.

Air Macau has 3 or 4 flight a week between Tokyo.
Macau airport is less crowded and close to Venetian.

But more than 95% of Japanese visitors will fly to HK and use ferry service.


I will fly from Tokyo to Guangzhou, mainland tho.
