Hi everyone. I'm planning going to Phlly. I've seen them only twice (Miami 1997 and Puerto Rico 2006) and my other options are Miami or Jacksonville. I'm looking for the best vibe and the best crowd. Out of these three cities, which one would you recommend?
Hi Philly people--I have a quick question. I am coming from out of town for the show and staying at the Fairfield Inn Downtown/Convention Center at 261 South 13th street. Is there public transportation/easy way to get to the stadium for the Stones show from where I will be? Thanks in advance.
yes....the broad street subway line can get you there in 20 minutes which includes walking to the station, waiting for the train and getting to Broad and Pattison all in 20 minutes. You are staying at a very nice part of the city btw. You will have no trouble getting to and fro using the subway.
Thanks a lot AlmostHearYouSigh! I really appreciate the info. I land in Philly the afternoon of the show and was worried about being stressed trying to get to and from the show and that's a bummer on show day. You have made me feel much better. Thanks again.
Looks like I'm going to at last have a chance at my show, assuming I can get my damn cancer to give me a break at just the right time.
I live about 30 minutes away, so all I need is the ticket. My strategy is to watch StubHub, etc as the show approaches. On day of, I'll evaluate my health situation, and if that's good for the day, I'll wait for something to drop at the last minute and then pounce on it.
I'll try to find a nice comfortable seat in a club box or similar. I did this when I took my son to see Kiss in March and it worked out nicely. In this case, given the cost, and my sons complete disinterest, I'll probably be purchasing a single ticket.
Assistance needed with Ticketmaster / Philadelphia
I was aiming to see the Stones in NJ on June 13th and 17th, travelling from Europe with a non-cancellable flight. Due to the rescheduling, I’ll miss the shows and won’t make the extra trip to NYC either.
As it happens, I’ll be in Washington DC in late July and have been trying to get a decent seat for the show in Philadelphia. For NJ I had a section 1 seat, so I was so happy to see that there were section 1 seats available for Philadelphia about an hour and a half ago. But since all the available seats are “in pairs”, the system won’t let me buy just a single seat!
I chatted with Ticketmaster twice and even called them, but all they kept saying is that I’ll have to buy the tickets online. So am I basically forced to buy two tickets? I don’t remember this being the case as I was buying the tickets in the presale for NJ1 and NJ2.
Does anybody have any ideas how to solve this? Thanks!
