Hi All,
I've received incorrect tickets for one of the shows via post. Bought Pit A but received Pit B (AXS website saying I've got Pit A still). I've called that weird company and they told me to pick up from the box office which is another joke. After consideration I'd be happy to keep Pit B though, do you think the tickets I've received would work or do I need to go and collect Pit A?

Btw, what other company would send someone else's tickets to another person, especially considering they are the most expensive ones! Would defo expect better service for this ridiculous price!

My football club did.

They sent me cup final tickets by post and there was no way i should have received them, took them back and ticket office did not want to know.

Two days later had a phone call from ticket office threatening the police on me if i don't return them, i just said you had your chance and ignored me, so send the police.
Never heard another word.

IMPORTANT SHOW INFO
Could we please remind you that if you are coming to any of The Rolling Stones gigs please try not to bring bags.


Unfortunately there are strict security rules throughout the tour and bringing anything bigger than a clutch size bag will involve having to check them in causing possible delay. We are so sorry for this inconvenience but thank you for your understanding.

I guess a year after the Ariana Grande bombing in Manchester this will now be the normal security precaution for stadium and arena shows. Anything bigger than an A5 sheet of paper isn't allowed apparently, which is a little restricting if you're out for the day.

Actually, according to this article by The Sun it looks like it might have been an issue, hence the alert!

[www.thesun.co.uk]

I have to say that some places "stick rigidly" to the rules where others are maybe a bit more lenient. Don't expect leniency at a big London venue!

I don't know how things panned out at Dublin or how they will at other venues, but it's not worth the risk. No bags for me!

This is 2018. This is a wake up call. Why would anyone bring a large backpack into a show? For our own security, they have rules, just like thay do have at airports.

Don't bring guns. Don't bring hand granades. Don't bring your killer dogs or your chainsaw. Just bring your ticket, plus a credit card or cash for mechandise and drinks. Plus a small A5 size (that is 15 x 20 cm i.e. 6 by 8 inches) size small bag for stuff you must travel with at all times.

Then queues are smooth, and you will be able to use both your hands for cheering the Stones or shooting an amazing picture or video with your phone.

Enjoy the shows!

I had a small bag that exceeds A5 size by a cm each way.

I also have a sleeveless fishing jacket that friends jokingly call my "suicide vest". It has tons of pockets, inside and out and an a big pocket along the back. I found it in a charity shop and have worn it to a few outdoor gigs and festivals.

I considered wearing it instead of using the bag, but thought I would be too hot, and frankly it would have taken security much longer to search the vest properly than to check a meduim sized bag.

In the end I took the little bag and it was fine. I did hold it open and took out a couple of larger items (purse, sunglasses case) so that it could be checked quicker and make the job easier for them.

picked up the merch booklet at London Stadium last night - misprint on second page with a yellow t shirt showing 'original' planned dates for this tour - includes 3rd night at London Stadium (29th, now Southampton) and 2nd night at Old Trafford (previously rumoured 2nd June, now Coventry) just for you completists out there :-)

Don't know if it as been asked.
What is the logistic for the London-Southampton-Conventry-Manchester part of this tour?
They obviously do not need a plane...
Local hotels seem also not much of use, IMO
However, what is the policy, whatever the distance?
All musicians have to be located in the same place, even some of them have their nearby own lodging?

Re Coventry, there's a hotel actually within the Ricoh Arena complex.

Three concerts so far - and each having a different opening number. That's radical set list policy... Are they just testing which song works best, or is there altogether a new policy on... Every night a different opening number...grinning smiley

So is it "Start Me Up" next?

Seriously, I liked the idea of starting with "Sympathy For The Devil" - it was altogether a novel idea last year to give some identity to the tour - but seemingly it didn't work out so well in the end (especially now since it's not dark yet by the opening time). Probably it is better to start with some iconic Richards riff to explode the whole place right away... A Telecaster bullet straight between the eyes! No mercy! One cannot much go wrong with "Flash", "Fighting Man", "Start Me Up" or "Brown Sugar". And there are several others.

Sympathy works as an opener when it's dark, but this is northern Europe in May and it isn't really dark until at least 9.15, so all the light effects are wasted. I don't think we'll get that again. Of the 3 we've had so far I liked Street Fighting Man best, but of course when I was there they didn't play it at all, anywhere. Bring back SFM - preferably at Cardiff or Twickenham when I'll be there to hear it!

It's possible we may get Sympathy as opener at Cardiff as they often close the roof for shows..so daylight wont be a problem. However, if they open with 'my granny got her tits caught in the mangle' the Radar family will still be welcoming them at the top of our lungs.. xhot smiley

On the bag issue

I went to a sold out Wembley Stadium on Saturday (85k) and they didn't seem to have any bother searching bags

Probably just another ruse to get you to buy some merch and get a free carrier bag with it smiling smiley

The woman in front of me at London #2 had a handbag with three zippered compartments. Security unzipped, checked, and zipped up each compartment. Try and keep it simple, folks.

Twickenham seems to be sold out (at least there are no more tickets available at AXS). Seems to be the only show on this tour that is sold out before the day of the show

I had a similar result when looking at Southampton tickets on Monday, but it clearly wasn't sold out as the box office was doing good business on the day.

As IORR states 55.000 people in Twickenham. Seems very low knowing that stadium.

Good question. At Southampton they drove up behind the stage in vans right before showtime, so obviously they weren't using dressing rooms at the stadium. Perhaps they just drove straight there from London? Or perhaps they had used a local hotel for dressing rooms? Perhaps they were all staying at Keith's place (Redlands)!

Last two shows they skipped the second Blue And Lonesome song (Ride ‘Em On Down) and only played Just Your Fool. Wish they play Hate To See You go, which they only played on a few occasions

Both Manchester and Edingburgh have sold good in the last few days. Only once category (seated) in each that you can get more than one ticket for.

The full capacity for a sold out rugby match is 82,000, but there is some building work going on at the stadium which might affect things a bit (I haven't been inside so I don't know for sure).

The capacity for the two Eminem shows in July is also 55,000.
