Thanks for the input/tips everyone. I love loud music, but my ears do not. So I'm wondering if the pit is going to be louder than the rest of the venue.
Get a pair of etymotic earplugs. I find they protect my ears very well, somehow seem to clean up the sound, and you can still have a conversation. Then head for the Pit!
This doesn’t sound encouraging

"Previously, Billboard reported that Live Nation had instructed its foreign and domestic tours to all return home. The company “told employees it is hitting the pause button on current touring arena shows through the end of the month.” Outside of select shows Thursday and Friday night, all Live Nation events will be postponed, with plans to reevaluate at the beginning of April, with the goal of resuming touring in May or June, according to Billboard."
Edit/Update: Not just the casinos, but the entire hotels are closing.
"MGM Resorts International announced Sunday it is temporarily suspending operations at all Las Vegas properties “until further notice” effective Tuesday.
Casino operations are set to close Monday, followed by hotel operations".
All Las Vegas MGM casinos, hotels to temporarily close
Also- meant to originally post the info in the virus thread..
I hate to say it, but there is sneaking a thought into my mind every day now:
The last ever Rolling Stones show might have been Miami Fri Aug 30, 2019
For sure, they can not tour anywhere in the world this year. For sure, Mick, Charlie and Ronnie are stuck in UK now for months, staying apart at home, while Keith is at home in USA.
Next year Charlie is 80 years old. With all the past experiences of hurricanes, laryngitis, heart valve procedure, and now the corinavirus worldwide lockdown, I think 2019 will be the new 2007, i.e. the last year they toured for a while, but it was never planned for.
I knew that the last show would not be a fact until AFTER I had seen it, but I did not expect it to end this way.
Hopefully, in a couple of years, they do a final UK tour. But I really don't know.
PS. If you want to discuss the virus issues, then please use [url=https://iorr.org/talk/read.php?1,2723291coronavirus thread[/url]. This is just a comment about their ages, and what might be on their mind now and next year and so on, vs touring and live performances.[/quote]
I hope you are too pessimistic. Still I don't think that the Corona crisis will go on like this for many years. Probably big tours in 2021/22 will be possible. But at least Charlie will be very old for a stadium rock star then, the oldest stadium rock star in history of mankind. If they still are able to tour then, I wonder how the ticket prices might be. Actually they are already absurd now. On the other hand: who except some houndred (rich) "fools" really needs another partly embarrassing (but great!) Hot Rocks Tour? Good question maybe. Maybe it's time to finish the so called "new album" this year and restart touring (if possible) next year with a new album to promote and a new concept. Or maybe sort of a London residency for a while (O2). But probably this wouldn't make sense financially. We will see.
