Are Lucky Dip tickets ideal for the super fan who has been following the Stones since the 1970s? Most likely no.
Are Lucky Dip tickets targeted towards the super fan who has been following the Stones since the 1970s? Most likely no.
Who are they targeted towards, then? Most likely Mick Jagger's favorite reason for playing a greatest hits album with a few surprises here and there- the group of friends who want a fun night out and pay to see some song from the 1960s about jumping jacks or a guy smoking the wrong cigarette or something like that...
Are Lucky Dip tickets ideal for the Joe who can't risk spending a couple hundred dollars per ticket(!) because he's got a lot going on in his life and just wants a night seeing legends? Sure.
So let's do a quick review...
Are Lucky Dip tickets for the mega-fan who begrudgingly spends anywhere from $20-$1,500 for every remaster, every 'Super-Deluxe-Limited-Edition' record, every box set? Not necessarily.
Are Lucky Dip tickets for the casual fan? Sure.
Are Lucky Dip tickets for those who are strapped for cash but want to see the Stones for the first (or last) time? Sure.
Is anyone forcing you to buy
the reissuesthe tickets? No.
Not real sure the lucky dips are for the real fans. I got 2 for Kansas City and will give to my son because they were cheap and it will be his first Stones show. Me being what I consider a real fan would no way even consider seeing them from a bad seat. Yes maybe the real fans are who are in the know and can get the lucky dips. But if they wanted to treat the True fan. Make all of them the good seats not just a few of them.
However, I do think the chance that a die-hard fan might be stuck up in the bleachers while a so/so fan just got lucky with good seats is a bit upsetting.
So how did the Lucky Dip tickets work out for everybody in San Diego? Love to hear everyone's experience(good or bad) with the Luck Dip! Thanks
I would imagine someone with Lucky Dips for Columbus will have an EXCELLENT chance at pulling up some great $400 seats.
There are almost full side stage sections of them left for sale.

LUCKY DIP TICKET LINK FOR COLUMBUS
I don't think it has anything to do with Kid Rock - the openers were only announced what, just over a week ago? That excuse doesn't cover the first month and a half of poor ticket sales.Quote
Columbus seems like one of the most disappointing from the perspective of ticket sales, considering it's a Saturday. The Kid Rock effect?
I have an issue with my Lucky Dip for Atlanta. My credit card has not been charged yet. I called ticketalternative and they said my tickets were in their system. But, I still feel a little worried I may have a problem at Will Call. Are all you other Lucky Dip ticket holders already charged?
