I don't get this: Can you sneak into the pit section without having a pit ticket? How does that work?

I did that in Stuttgart last year smiling smiley

Haha thanks for your answers. The thing is, why not try to get an update for the LD tix if there is a possibility? I mean, I'll come over from Germany but I don't think they'll accept that as a reason to upgrade grinning smiley

I got pretty lucky with these tix the last times, scoring the Pit 6/7 times on the No Filter tour so I would be fine with a seat, but I'm going with a girl who's never seen the Stones before so I'll give it a try.

I had pit 1 for both chicago shows. Friday you could have sneaked into a Pit because it was the first show and everyone was clueless with all the wristbands. Not even a possibility for Tuesdays show. I was told by an exec at Soldier that the Stones camp fixed all the issues with Pit, LD and Floor wristbands, the Stones camp was not happy about what happened at Fridays show. On friday i walked into the floor GA, past the seats on the left and up to Pit 1 where no one checked my actual ticket and i got the Pit wristband at the Pit. Tuesday you got your special Pit wristband at a special entry for Pits when you entered the venue and you could only enter the Pit from one section next to the Pit on the left for Pit 1, not from any other way. It was blocked off and mega strict. Love how they fixed all the issues. Rock on stoners, see ya in NOLA, Rose Bowl and Miami. The boys are are Fire. That Play with Fire was spooky....

The general admission wristbands in the back of the field were green, reserved were blue and I believe the pit had two wristbands both green and blue. Our Lucky Dips were white with gold spots. We just walked into the reserved section and did not leave. When the show started it looked to be very difficult to get to the reserved sections from the back of the field.

And Why not? Sounds good to me.

The Pits are twice as big and they can't sell the $1500 VIP Pit tickets. And besides, why would anyone spend that much money only to have to wait in line day of show 8:30 am or earlier so they can scratch and claw their way to the Pit with the rest of the people who bought tickets at cost!

i got to the pits around 820pm each night, no rush, no worry about getting on the rail. nice and easy, great site lines and lots of room to dance and shake. met tons of cool people also from all over the world in Pit 1 each night. have fun peeps, cheers

I think there may have been some sort of vip pit deal. We were seated behind the section of seats just behind the PIT and I noticed that people in those seats were against the catwalk rail but they wouldn't allow those of us seated near B stage to go against the rail.. The guy next to me told me they were allowing a select group of people against that rail who had paid for the meet & great.. Anyone know more about this?

Based on my personal experience The PIT1 on Friday was packed liked sardines, lots of BS, lots of talkers, selfie takers, people who acted like they were in a bar scream talking not paying attention to the show. To avoid them one had to move further and further to the left where eventually the Pit was more a balcony ticket than a front of show ticket. Not to mention the crap blocking the view (like the camera crane), plus on Friday the band members did not come over to the left side much at all. Keef never came over to say Hi.

If one gets to pit early, runs up front, grabs the rail and stays there the whole time one may have a good view. Or maybe if one is the type to rudely push people out of the way one can get there 35 minutes before the Stones come on and move up close. But by 8:20 the pit was packed.

I talked with several people up there who said they had (somehow) just been handed the special wrist band and others who had smiled and said they had snuck up there. I dont know if it was over-sold, but it was packed. I do not begrudge anyone for getting into the pit anyway they can if "the security setup" allows that (or "other methods" allow that). I dont blame the fans for going for it. I would have tried, if I had not paid $500.00... and I would not even post about the pit situation if I had only paid 50 bucks.

Based on videos it seemed the same situation Tuesday, just as packed.

Packed front to back and from center rail all the way to the left. It seems like the ticket count should limited to the number of people who could be placed there if there were chairs. That way when everyone most people push up, there will be a nice amount of space towards the back to move around a bit... not be packed like sardines. I saw a lot of video/pictures of past shows where the pit looked like that, but the Pit was not great for me. It was no way worth $500 to me to be in the pit.

The show itself was great, but my view of the show was not front of stage, it was far left. It was a pain in theshow dealing with the Pit.

I am not sure where/what is the best ticket to this show is. I would like to watch the show and be close... and I dont mind paying... so maybe side balcony? I dont know. I will (hopefully) have 2 more chances but as of right now I do not know where I will be. I wish I could float around on a hover board, 15 feet above the pits and move side to side... Id pay $1000 for that.

The pit were large paper wristbands like the generic lucky dip ones. The floor wristbands were the plastic colored standard kind. The pit wristbands were white the first night then colored green the second night so it was impossible to use the same one to get into the next show.

I pulled the second variety for both shows.
I spent both shows in the third..cool smiley

As an aside, when I went to guest services, and successfully received an upgrade, it wasn't just because they were nosebleeds. It was because they were nosebleeds that had "limited view" stamped on them.
If my request was denied, no problem accepting my fate. But when the guy kept flipping through his large stack to satisfy my request for "anything with no stairs would be great.. even GA", and handed me the ticket, I thought.. well it was going to go to somebody or unused, why not me??..
Definitely doesn't hurt to ask as that's the reason he was sitting on so many tickets imo.

I got a refund thru Ticketmaster for my extra unused chi 1 LD ticket. I was only allowed to take one ticket since i was by myself. After thinking about it and with allnof the service charges that i have paid thru the years, i asked for a refund for one ticket. After explaining and 6 back n forth emails, i was refunded 45.xx dollars.

I probably sabotaged my 3 remainong setsnof LDs. ????

So, with a little luck or boldness you can score a pit ticket for less than 50 box while the guy standing next to you had to pull out $500.
I guess it's not wise to start a conversation about prices while you're in the pit then..

Why wouldn't/didn't you post here asking if any singles wanted a lucky dip?

I hung around that lucky dip line for a couple of hours looking/hoping/asking for a single.

in 2017/18 the wristband had different color for each show and the name of the city and the date on them. But since there were only five or six different colors some wristbands could be reused. For example London and Stuttgart had the same color…

Those people had the Friends and Family badge which you CAN'T BUY. You have to be a Friend or Family of the Band. Hence the name. Friends and Family don't have a reserved spot at the rail. They will be in the Pit before gates open, because they were there earlier in the day.
