Rose Bowl Pasadena California Saturday May 11, 2019
Rose Bowl is 15 miles i.e. 25 km from Burbank Airport, easier access than LAX.

Some historic references to the Stones show at the Rose Bowl in 1994:

I've lived here in Pasadena for more than 20 years. DM me if you have questions on what parts of Pasadena to stay. The areas where you want to be are in the $300-400 range on May 11. If you find a bargain price, it is likely a part of town you want to avoid. There are deals to be found though - for example the Green Tree Motel on Arroyo has great prices and is only a couple blocks from Old Town.

I trust your local knowledge, but for what it's worth I've stayed at a couple of semi-decent/semi-bargain places near Pasadena City College (Howard Johnson Wyndam for one). While not in the thick of Old Town, it's less than two miles down the road on Colorado Blvd. - basically a hop. skip, and a jump. And while it might not be the "happening" area with all the bars and nightlife, I wouldn't call it a part of town to avoid either- after all this is not South Central L.A. The bottom line it's a decent place to stay for a night, especially when the rates are so much less than two miles down the road. And if they have a Rose Bowl shuttle to and from the college, very convenient. That said, for Arroyo Festival wkd., I was lucky to get a room at the Sheraton Pasadena by the Convention Center and Old Town for apprx. $150/night via priceline express deal which I now see is going for astronomical rates for May 11th on most sites, but this one is currently offering it for a "reasonable" $242 and is refundable ( Sheraton ), though that deal won't last very long. Very nice and ideally located for sure (and my wife loved it), but personally I would have been just as happy staying at the Wyndham by Pasadena College ( Wyndham ).

Can you recommend any great Mexican food in the area? I know there's a King Taco, and I've been to Amigos which was pretty good standard fare, but any other suggestions?

See above.

Hotels on East Colorado are hit or miss, but I suspect you will be satisfied. Most hotels east of Old Town make all their revenue during Rose Bowl week, and the rest of the year, many of these spots are are a bit sketchy - especially the closer you get to Rosemead Ave. If you are near City College, you should be just fine. And it’s a quick Uber to the action.

For Mexican, Chiquita Bonita on Colorado is an overwhelming local favorite. Many good choices though. In fact El Cholo at Paseo Colorado is quite good, and may be a more appealing spot for out of towners.

I’d strongly consider Lucky Baldwin’s Pub in Old Town if anyone is planning a pre-party.

And there's always Glendale if you want to make it a different kind of "interesting"

If you don't find anything suitable in Pasadena, the Metro Gold Line runs late from Pasadena Memorial Park station to Union Station where the Red Line can connect you to the rest of downtown, Hollywood and beyond.

You think many shows will be sold out?

Sold out doesn't mean what it used to. There are always tickets available for an event this size.

In this day and age, instant sellout for a show of this size means prices are too low. See the upcoming Garth Brooks stadium shows to see what I mean.

Most of them will for sure but it will probably take some time.

They are still the greatest rock n roll band in the world and still make many people happy, enough to sell out huge stadiums.

Not MetLife. It's going to be a radio interview with Mick and Keith by Jim Kerr, broadcast on several radio stations (iHeart) simultaneously.

See what Lien posted on the previous page.

that's kind of the point. Dynamic pricing, more or less full on show day = max return, v little secondary market action. Like UK this year, Europe last year, they'll be full come show time and everyone will go away smiling.

+1 .. Also when I toured Chess Records museum a few months ago Dixon's grandson mentioned something about the Stones possibly making an appearance there (Chess) for some event in the near future. Don't recall the details, but wonder if this might happen during the Chicago stop
