what about the stage ?

is it a new stage ? or the same at 14 on fire ?

The reports are (someplace here on IORR) that they are building BIGGER HUGER MONSTER STADIUM SIZED STAGE(s) for these 15 shoes..

and as I type that... I think... build a stage for only 15 shows?

I bet they will use it again when they head back to South America, and abck to River Plate Stadium in Argentina, home of some of the best rock and roll fans on the planet, for the South America tour 2015/2106.

I will just keep posting this until some people listen.

Aug 2005 they played 2 nights at Fenway pk Boston 40,000, 5 months later Jan 2006 played 2 Nights Boston garden 18,000, 8 months later Sept 2006 1 night Gillette stadium Foxboro 25 miles south of Boston. Maybe over exposer factored into this but the day of the Gillette show I paid face value $22.50 for my ticket. The price had been lowered from what was origanally a $99.00 seat because of slow sales.

They lowered plenty of seat price's two - three weeks before many of the all arena shows in 2013.

All Stadiums plenty of tickets will be floating around. They are trying to create thier own market with these bullshit presales and then in the general sale they will release them in dribbs and drabbs .

Keep checking the RS. com Some of the Lucky Dips will show as we move forward.

Patience is key as drbryant once wrote

Not that I would know, but I do think they will add a second "western"leg to the tour, then head down south. (can't remember a U.S. tour without San Francisco?)

Hi all - newbie here.

Just an FYI for the MPLS show...AXS just dropped a bunch of $149/199 seats for the TCF show. I scored 4 for a friend, so if you got shut out keep checking.

It's revolting how all these presales and holding back tickets is solely to create artificial demand. Don't get me wrong..the Stones can obviously fill stadiums, but when basically ZERO tickets are available in anything other than $395 price points it just doesn't add up.

Really hoping for a couple shows at MSG to close out this tour. Not holding my breath, but who knows.

Anyone hear any rumors?
Me too that is much easier for me as well as there is the possibility of getting accommodation from my friend or one of his mates, plus more affordable flights from the UK>grinning smiley<

MSG is booked pretty solid with U2 in July. I like MSG too, but people need to stop obsessing/hoping about MSG. There is zero indication it's happening.

Row 6, upper level, side stage on Keef's side!

I think it's about as good as I could have hoped for at my price point ($149).

Of course I may be wrong, but it appears you got a real good ex-silver vip and saved about $150 off the previous price. Just checked the silver vip ordering page. No doubt, that was a silver vip! GREAT job!!!

Just saw that there are more tkts released for Minnie show. Lower levels A, B, C and upper level A.

On a side note, does anyone know much about VIP tickets? I purchased Nashville Gold VIP just because I thought it was only way to get a decent seat, but now I'm wonering if the price is based more on the swag that comes with it instead of the actual seat location?

Do not worry about getting tickets.

In May 2013, I saw the Stones 3 times in California.

Los Angeles first show, Oakland, then San Jose.

For each concert, I bought my tickets the day of the show, officially, at the window.

In LA, I paid 250$ instead of 500$.

In Oakland and San Jose, I paid 150$ instead of 400$.

For each show, I had very decent seats, especially in LA and San Jose.

So do not worry about getting seats for stadium shows, even in the best categories.

I will be this summer in Minneapolis, Arlington and Nashville. I will buy my tickets on the spot. I do not worry, I come from France and I know I will get tickets.

I have been to 70 Stones concerts. The only concerts which were really sold out were the Olympia 1995 and 2003 as well as the Trabendo club in Paris in October 2013.

Even for the Madison Square Garden in January 2003 (the show with Hubert Sumlin) I bought my ticket just before the show at 4 PM and at face value.

"MidnightGambler: I totally agree that there will be tons of tickets before the show. However not everybody likes to take the risk and run around for tickets before the show. And I also agree with you that most of the time prices drop about 2 hours before the show and people can get in. But even now the ticket prices for expensive seats already drop on the secondary markets. So if you watch out carefully you might have a good deal before the day of the show.
Happy Travels.

Ok, here's how the drops are going to play out using Columbus as an example for all of the soft selling shows....

Wed Apr 15, sapphires (rows 15-25) were being offered in row 20. Around noon, rows 24 & 25 became general tickets at $424. As the next few days pass, we should see them squeeze together, i.e., sapphires in maybe row 22 offered, general tickets in row 23. At some point, they will meet. When this happens, the back of the emeralds (row 14) will drop to $424 general. Once the emeralds and re-allocated generals from emeralds meet, we should shortly thereafter see unsold diamonds re-allocated to general $424. Once they meet, .... platinums (if any are left).

Just guesssing, of course... but looks likely that this is how they'll do it.

For those who missed out in the general sale, one good way to get an idea of how easy it will be to get reasonably priced tickets as the show date approaches is to monitor how well tickets are selling on Stubhub. Usually, most of the tickets that will be put up for sale are listed by the end of the day following the start of the General Sale. So, as of 12 midnight Pacific time last night, the numbers for a few select cities were:

San Diego: 3756
Minneapolis: 2750
Dallas: 7095
Milwaukee: 3303
Kansas City: 3940
Buffalo: 4200

To be honest, except for Dallas, those totals are a bit lower than I would have expected. Check the totals from time to time to see how well a show is selling on the secondary market - if the number is not decreasing at all, then you might be able to snag good seats at a better price later on. Not foolproof, but a good guide.

A public service announcement. Updated numbers 24 hours later:

San Diego: 3471 (-285)
Minneapolis: 2705 (-45)
Dallas: 6891 (-204)
Milwaukee: 3254 (-49)
Kansas City: 3955 (+15)
Buffalo: 4322 (+122)

Keep in mind that new totals would include new tickets listed, and subtract tickets sold.

My take is that if I were a buyer, I wouldn't be too concerned about waiting a while. Usually, the week or so after the general onsale is the period where secondary market activity (and prices) are the highest. As you can see, the number of available tickets have actually increased in KC and Buffalo, indicating not much interest in those markets. The only show I would be worried about would be San Diego. A decrease of 285 tickets (7.5% of the available tickets) over a 24 hour period is pretty significant. If they announce another show, that situation changes overnight, of course. Doesn't rule out price drops - are VIP packages still available in San Diego, or have they sold out as well?

Is there a B stage for this tour?

Looking at the seating charts not sure if the end of the ramp can hold 4? Wishful thinking on my part!!

No, only a catwalk.

@Maindefender that was my hope as well. The stage is exactly the same layout as in Europe. That being said, my only real hope is that Keith and Mick would go down to the circle at the end and do You Gotta Move or Prodigal Son. Don't hold your breath. I doubt they'll do anything risky this go round.

The turn on the monitors really loud, though, when the band members use the catwalk. It is a cool experience, albeit not the same as the B-stage.

VIPs are sold out in San Diego. Platinums are still available.

I have 3 Reallllly good sets for Columbus that I will let go of for face value. My brothers decided they would rather do Indy. I have two in section b row 33 and two in section b row 16. I also have two in section 22a row 16. I will only sell the section b row 16's for face if you also buy the section 22a's. If not, I'm gonna wait it out, and see if I can sell the sec b row 16s to friends since they are amazing seats.
Thanks

This has been my experience as well. I have gotten tickets to every show I tried for, and this is for arena shows when the Stones were much more in demand, including MSG and other 2003 east coast shows (prices were not reduced in those cases). There will be box office tickets at eevery show if you are willing to wait, most likely at steep discounts.

Most of these shows will get "flexed" there appears to be a lot of tickets

Hey Grison! How are you? I trust you will be doing a tour again this year? I'm only in Minnesota.

I can recall a few situations where demand far outstripped supply, though. MGM Grand Arena in March 2006 was crazy; I ended up not being able to go, put my tickets on Ebay four days before the show and it was like a feeding frenzy. I just wanted my money back and was stunned when I made an unintended $2000 profit! At the second 2012 London show and the pay per view show in 2012 in Newark were both definitely sold out - there were large groups of fans who couldn't get in and ended up hanging out outside the arena. But stadiums in the US, where they are trying to get between $400 and $1000 for tickets 25 rows from the stage? There will be lots of tickets at most venues (again, maybe Petco Park will be an exception).

I agree completely. It is amazing to me that the furthest regions of many stadiums are the $188 tickets. All of the normal good seats are $350. Very few seats available at $188 and below.

I have section 209 in Minneapolis. I hope the seats give a full view of the stage, but I wonder if I will get some cut off.

If that's the case, does anyone have luck complaining to a staffer and asking politely for an upgrade?
