Still don't get the point. Firebird you're absolutely right. But why then doing a stadium show? They could also do arena shows with 20000-30000 seats and they would get the same money. For me the point of a stadium show is to play as many people as possible. And the stones would fill those stadium within minutes, even for 200$ per GA ticket. And 60.000 200$ tickets would make the same money as 30.000 400$ tickets.
Isn't is much more fun to play to an energetic and younger crowd with less space between the people than to rich old people?
For their Fonda gig they extra picked younger people and models, but in reality they rather want to play to an older crowd?!
I think you overestimate the Stones' ability to sell out a GA style show. Notice in some of the pictures that A LOT of the people down in those $500+ seats are an average of 50+ years of age. How many people over 50 will be willing to pay $200 to be squished against everyone around them? I know in theory it'd be more money, but really, it would be mostly young people who go to the GA. And how many 'young' people are going to go to a Stones' show for $200? I will go out on a limb and say that only a huge fan would spend $200 on a ticket. Are there enough young fans to sell out 60,000 tickets? I really don't think so..
Maybe you're right. I would think we had more people with 20-50 years old and I don't doubt that they could fill a stadium. And anyway there are many people over 50 who would take a GA ticket too. But could be I am wrong.
But wasn't it in Europe like that? Most shows sold out with GA Tickets and more younger people

I mean.. It's totally possible, just seemed like a stretch to me.. But anyways I'm sure the Stones' financial team has done the math to ensure maximum profit lol

Aren't there enough threads beating to death ticket sales philosophies?

This thread is for show updates. Stop clogging it up with the same tired bullshit so we can all enjoy the updates from the show.

Tuning up backstage

Sweet post bloomer, thanks!

Actually warming up would be a better description...it's probably a rare occasion when Keith actually has to tune his own guitars these days. smoking smiley

Diet Coke and Marlboro Reds! This guy truly is an amazing biological specimen.

peace

Europe was all General Admission, albeit separated to front and back. Lots of people of all ages there, and everyone helpful if someone needed to sit down.
In the official "Thank You Europe" clip on rs.com, Mick said: "They give you so much energy. They're so vibrant and alive, that I could feed of that. Just interchanging energy."
Guess where that energy stems from???

hint: Premium Seating it's not.

Isn't it interesting how there were 30 pages for San Diego at this point and only 5 for Columbus as the show begins.

I don't see any tarps on sections tonight, but a lot of areas will be empty. The rain won't help that. What I noticed in San Diego (sold out) was many ticket holders never took their seats. They just hung at the bars in the stadium, or walked around for better views.

Some of these seats I'm seeing in Columbus are miles away from the stage.

You're completely right, it is bad business to play to loads of empty seats. You'd make much more selling them for 20 bucks each than not selling them at all

Have fun everyone ! It'll be a blast

Question about the stage:

Are there runways in front of those giant screens on either side of the stage that Mick used to go out to the sides ?

Notice they remove a section of the walkway to the middle stage so opening act can't go out there and upstage Mick.

It's a proper stadium without a home base, still there are large seatless areas in the back.
Did the promoter adjust the number of seats to the sales or is this usual?

Baseball stadiums are much better for a concert,a s you're never too far away. In this stadium fans are sitting on benches a mile from the stage. They can't see anyone on it.

Okay most of you say it's about money, but I don't really understand. Wouldn't it bring more money to have a sold-out show with 150$ Tickets, people standing close to each other and the whole stadium would be full?

This isn't Europe or SA. They have strick laws here about GA and how many people can be on a floor. And very few American fans want to pay for a ticket that doesn't come with a seat.

Indianapolis is European style GA. So is Quebec.
