Can't wait for this one! Saw the boys there in 1975 after they got out of going to jail in Arkansas. What a great show it was. Still vivid in my mindsmiling smiley

Is there a seating chart on how the Cotton Bowl will be set up. The stadium has been redone and 25,000 more seats added since they last played there in 1994. Would like to see it so I can check out tickets as they pop up.

This is where I saw the Stones for the first time--Halloween 1981. I later met Bill Wyman briefly in the lobby of a hotel in France. He remembered the rain that day.

That’s probably the most talked about show of their history of playing the D/FW area because of performing in horrid Texas Flood conditions throughout it all. Ronnie mentioned it in a paperback book he did about 20 plus years ago. All those fantastic Halloween costumes washed away in the Texas Flood. My favorite memory was after the concert I waited under the deck for the rain to stop watching about 50 yards of field cover in a tarp being used by young adults acting and playing like kids on a gigantic super slide over ballet music from the stadium PA.

Have seen the Stones 3 times at the Cotton Bowl twice in 81 and once I think 96 for voodoo lounge.

Was 16 the first shows and had a driver for the last one.


Looks like it will be pretty hard to get an uber or a ride out of there and nothing is close at all.

Any word if any hotels will offer a shuttle service there and back.

Only seen the Stones once (five years ago at Jerry World) and I didn't know about the Lucky Dip tickets for that one. Just snagged the lucky pair for Cotton Bowl - can't wait!!!

Had major issues with Ticketmaster website in that it kept kicking back my credit card info on entering my name as it appears on the card which I did just that multiple times yet it kept kicking it back and as a result I missed out on Lucky Dips. They got a ear full from me that there are flaws in their website in gathering payment information. Getting freaking tickets to concerts these days is a lot more complicated than it has to be. Fortunately I got tickets in the presale thru a friend. Ticketmaster is a racquet.

I will also be in Pit 2 with my son who will have just turned 11.

Time to go back and look at all those threads about the "pit experience" that I didn't read in years past thinking I would never actually be able to do something like that, lol. Could be my last show. Go big or go home.

Can anyone from Dallas recommend some nice hotels? I was looking at the Westin, Adulphus or Joule. I want to be in the (cool section), lots of restaurants, bars etc....I see that the cotton bowl is 2 miles downtown, so i could take a bus to the show or even walk possibly from downtown. Any local insight would be appreciated, thank you. Flying in from Chicago on Thursday before show. See ya in the PIT 1

The Adolphus is historic and as good as it gets and if you have the bread then that's where I'd stay.

BBQ spots are plentiful however the best spot in the Downtown area imo is The Pecan Lodge. Go in the early AM around 10 because it's gone by noon and folks have been known to stand in long lines for it. Brisket is the best. Has been featured on DDD on the Food Network.
