I don't doubt that they've popped up and been snapped up. Every time I've seen face value Pit and try to put it in the cart, Ticketmaster tells me to use another device, no matter what device I'm using at the time (PC, laptop, phone). No doubt some more will become available.

Thanks for the info and COACH was my 1st option, but they aren't showing a service for 5th August. Hope they add that date as I'd rather buy returns in advance and be all sorted.

I've got Pit 1 for August 5, and finally managed to schedule flights to NY for the show. I think I paid $650 - a bit of a premium a few weeks after they went on sale, but I'm happy with that price.

Based on what we've seen so far, is there any chance that tickets will drop way down on stubhub or ticketmaster resale the day before or day of the show? I wouldn't mind taking my daughters, but they've seen the Stones a number of times from up close and aren't huge fans - if I could grab decent seats in the stands for around $200 apiece, I would want to take them.

Thanks.

This info will be added to the first page of this thread as well. In addition, I will post info about any nice meeting places near the venue, if I find such once there eventually.

I will be staying in walking distance from the venue in NJ, but just like on every tour visiting NYC since 1998, I will be recommending this place as a meeting place whenever The Stones are in NYC or that area.

When The Rolling Stones played three shows at MSG Jan 1998, we made residence at Mustang Harrys for a week or so. Before and after the shows, we had the entire inner part of the bar/restaurant for ourselves, many fans from all over the world, friends on travel, old friends, new friends.

Mustang Harry's have lots of space, it is a great place, and I will be there as often as I can on non-show days when the Stones are in NY/NJ first week of August:

MUSTANG HARRY’S
352 7th Ave, New York, NY 10001

www.mustangharrys.com

WELCOME TO MUSTANG HARRY’S
Midtown NYC’s legendary Irish sports bar & restaurant for more than two decades

Located just steps from NYC’s Madison Square Garden, Midtown Manhattan’s legendary Mustang Harry’s has endured as NYC’s go-to Irish sports bar and gastropub for more than two decades, serving an elevated menu of American classics, handcrafted cocktails, craft beers, and 150+ whiskeys and fine spirits from around the globe.

This lively two-floor mainstay captained by brothers Ian and Niall Conroy of County Tipperary, Ireland boasts a sweeping 99-foot main floor bar—the longest of any sports bar in NYC—in a charming post-industrial setting decked with tufted leather banquets, dozens of HDTVs, and premium surround sound for the ultimate sports-viewing experience.

A popular spot for locals, concert goers, and sports fans, alike, Mustang Harry’s is located at 352 7th Avenue between 29th St. and 30th St. in close proximity to Penn Station and local attractions such as the Empire State Building and Herald Square. It is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, as well as Saturday and Sunday brunch.

Staying nearby, thanks for the info Bjornulf.
Looking forward to these shows!


Hoping for similar setlist changes between gigs as Chicago (7 song changes!)
Life's just a cocktail party on the street..

Someone I reached on the phone at Coach suggested that new dates on the website get added when Coach gets notified by MetLife Stadium officially.
(But he didn't know who or which department at MetLife or which department at Coach...)

Nevertheless, I was told 351 Meadowlands bus service always operates when there is an event at the stadium regardless of the website.
Tickets can be purchased the day of the event in any case.
When I called another Coach customer support telephone number on their website, I got someone clueless in their bus depot... who was like, "Huh?"...

Guest services at MetLife Stadium were equally clueless and unhelpful.
Typical incompetence, incompetents...

Hope for the best (but plan an alternate route, like NJ Transit).
Call MetLife and Coach ahead of the date... if you care...

NJ Transit usually tries to "feel it out" with Meadowlands events and sometimes with disasterous results i.e. The Super Bowl and Wrestlemania.

7/21 5:45PM: Just pulled up some Pit tickets for the second show. Strangely they did not offer the print it at home option, just mail. Still on the fence with this show pending the weather. Edit: These were face value $545 with fees.

Hope so as well. Latest forecast I looked at it said possible thunderstorms mainly in the AM for both days. Highs mid-upper eighties, lows lower seventies. Hopefully make for decent showtime conditions.

I got one also a couple days ago, face value Pit 1 and mail was the only option. It said 10-14 days and I'm a little nervous as I'm going to both shows and flying down from Buffalo at 8 am on Aug 1st. I may call them and see if they can switch to will call.

Mentioned earlier in the thread, I believe, but for those who will be in the city this (free!) presentation at the
New York Public Library will be worth your time.

Went to it in Chicago, and highly recommend!
Looking forward to sitting in on it a second time.

[www.billgerman.com]
Bill German performs a monologue about
(and presents never-before-seen images from)
the two decades he spent hangin' with the Stones.

Saturday afternoon, August 3, at 2 o'clock
New York Public Library
18 West 53rd Street
New York City, New York

Free admission. No tickets required.
