Just got pit to Stockholm for approx. 380 GBP (Platinum package). Have been trying for several days and suddenly it appeared. Strange...
Where did you got it from?

ticketmaster

Platinum is not a package per se. It's just the ticket with a marked up price. No VIP perks.

Nothing I guess. Just like the other ones, you got them when they were sold-out.
Don't think the VIP even have early entry in the pit. Some package have a Lito included.

I'd bet it just dynamic pricing. They haven't been selling the packages too well at the original price point so they lowered the price? The contents are the same.

Yes, but if you bought the pit in the package, yes it is expensive, it is a shortcut to the pit, when sold out. Not much to do about it. Some get lucky with the regular price, some need to buy the Platinum/Package.

Important to recognise that there are two different products being talked about here:
1) Start Me Up package is a specific item including a pit ticket, a lithograph and other merchandise. I can't remember if it includes early entry or not.
2) 'Platinum tickets' are just an ordinary ticket sold at a higher price (which changes according to demand). No merchandise and no early entry. But it is cheaper than the SMU package.

Also worth noting - even though TM have Platinum pit tickets listed, there are none available if you search for them. That could change in the future, of course.

Pretty sure all VIP packages include Early Entry. I could be wrong.

And yes, Platinum tickets don't include anything extra, they're just marked up tickets.

Just a few solitarily seats available in Stockholm. You can't find two seats besides each other anywhere.
But still Ståplats Främre (Golden Circle) available.

Is the ticket also valid for public transport in Stockholm on the day of the show?

Re: Stockholm Sweden travel and show info - The Rolling Stones No Filter Tour 2017

Yes, public transport, taxi and by air!

Joking apart: does that exist anywhere? If you're lucky they open the gates to the subway when 60.000 are leaving the venue. Just because otherwise it's impossible to handle the situation.

Yes, in Germany they let you ride local trains for free on the day of the concert. In 2014 I even travelled from Dortmund to Dusseldorf for free as my concert ticket was also a train ticket. Normally it would cost around 25 EUR.
I think it would not work with e-tickets though

Sounds great for a show goer! Even if I don't see why favor show goers specific in front of other travelers.

In contrast to Paris the PIT ticket could be downloaded after purchase. So at least this time my PIT ticket wasn't canceled.

If Pit tickets are available after this time, it's a sure fire sign that the show is selling slowly. I have read numerous reports about this venue having poor concert acoustics, although I'm sure the sound will be fine in the pit. I just pulled up s Pit and thought about it but £240 GBP is just too much imho. I was in the pit at the Tele2 last time.

Seating tickets have been sold out for one-and-a-half week. (just single seats still availabe).
But standing tickets seem to be less popular. The fans are getting older...

Even the seats up in the rafters? I doubt it! A short while ago, I was able to pull up 10 (yes, TEN) pit tickets in a single transaction!

So I take it you nabbed one Nate? I'm still half thinking about it as I have a good friend who works in Stockholm and he's been hinting at me visiting. But I've already booked a lot of leave for the other shows I'm attending - Hamburg, Barcelona and Paris 1 & 2.

Hi grzegorz yep I got one.I have never visited Sweden before so it will be good to see it and when the pit ticket came up I didn't think twice.

Good opportunity to get a pit ticket at standard pricing.

Nate thumbs up

A short while ago? You know, time flies!
I haven't seen pit tickets one single time and in general sale, even if I understand there must have been some sold that way.
But today they appeared (thank Stonewolf, God bless you, I upgraded my Främre Ståplats) but are already gone again.
Maybe there will be more released in general sale, maybe not. Probably the packages containing No Filter Pit tickets have not sold as well as they've wished.

Am I right in thinking that the nearest airport to the venue is Stockholm Bromma?

A very rare opportunity ! I dithered for too long but I'm going to leave myself way short on leave if I go.

I've been to Stockholm twice in recent years. Cracking city with excellent public transport and other infrastructure. Locals invariably speak very good English.

It really doesn't matter what airport you use as all are very well connected by bus company Flygbussarna to the City Centre. Arlanda is the main airport and it has a train service, though very expensive.

I just checked and there are no direct flights to Bromma so I will fly to Arlanda.
How expensive is the train from the airport to the city centre is it worth just taking a cab?

Thanks

A cab will cost a mint - £50 +

Train is 308Sek return £28 (if you book 90 days in advance)

Bus 99sek each way - £9 ish and can be booked st short notice. Bus is remarkably good and drops you off right at the terminal building and city centre, right next to the Central Rail station that all the Metro lines pass through.

Will probably take the train as I don't like buses and I will probably fly in on show day so will want the fastest connection.£28 not so bad and still cheaper than the rip off Heathrow express.

Thanks for the information

Nate thumbs up
