No Filter Pit vs. Tounge Pit
Posted by: Stoneswolf ()

Any comments how the No Filter Pit might compare to the Tounge Pit? I mean thinking of the price the Tounge Pit in London/O2 was about half the price as the No Filter Pit for the German show. In contrast to that I assume that the No Filter Pit is at least four times the capacity of the tounge pit...

It's 14 rows deep and around 30 seats wide.
So, it might be 12 meters deep and around 18 meters wide.

It is standing.
However for German shows there are numbered seats around the pit.
Based on that approximate size can be calculated.

Thanks ! That makes sense to gauge the size . I might upgrade if the right pit comes up. Not paying 799 to stand in a field though !

The tongue pit was usually 300-400 people in a tongue shaped space. Standing only, except Shanghai was with some 300 chairs. The No Filter pit looks similar, except it isa square rather than tongue shape.

I won't either. I've seen 21 Stones shows since 1990. Any one of these could have ended up being my last, including my 1st, which I was convinced at time would also be my last! I could pay 800EUR for a ticket but I refuse to. I already have enough memories from the shows I've already seen but am still going to more until they stop. But never for 800EUR. Or even 200EUR. I paid 147GBP (incl rip-off postage) in 2014 for Oslo (GA, got front row at the end of the catwalk) and the same for Stockholm (GC). But I wouldn't be willing to stump up much more than that.

If and when they come to the UK next year, I plan to Lucky Dip the whole tour.

'Pit' - dropped into a dungeon -

It is a basic concept. The crowd is part of the stage in the show. Some of of the pit tickets are sold at a high price to those who can afford it, or to those who can't afford it, but still need to be there. The rest is sold at a low price through a lottery called Lucky Dip. So the pit is a mix of hard core fans, average fans and VIP people.

I'm wondering how exactly it will look for the stadiums.
In arenas the pit bridge was very high on the sides touching the main stage.
There even were steps up from the main stage to the bridge
However there were no seats on the sides on the floor in that place.

In stadiums there are seats/standing on the sides so it must be done a bit different otherwise there will be people in the front who won't see the stage as the view will be obstructed.

It is not about a better job : I can easily afford the 800 Euros. I've been following the Stones since 42 years ( I'm 54 ), seen them 35 times, been an IORR member since I was 19.I'm Dutch, seen them in Holland, Germany and Belgium and England.

To mee, 800 E for 1 show is just not worth it : 400 Euros per hour. I love ém, I do, but my love is not unlimited. It's a price-value thing, which doesn't feels good to me.
I bought a 2oo Euro Premier Standing, which felt OK.

No matter my low income : I work with disabled people.
Can't imagine "a better job".
