Sadly, there is no shortage of ignorant and uneducated people in the world, who choose to trust and believe other ignorant people and leaders who lead with fear and disinformation. Sadly, no country is immune. Ignorance is as great a threat as any viral or bacterial illness.

The lack of competition in ticket selling has led to virtual monopolies that know they can dictate terms to consumers, bands and venues. Remember Pearl Jam's battle with Ticketmaster? Tours and Events going on sale months before their performance date gives them even more time to play the float game, using our money to invest and make more money. Every decent size bank uses the float (t

Thank you for all the work! I have heard a story (and it may be urban legend - I do not have any idea if it is true) that Jimmy Page once said that Keith's rhythm guitar from El Mocambo for Dance Little Sister is perfection. I have not heard a clean version of the track. Looking forward to it. Why don't they play Dance Little Sister more? Seems it would be a great stadium son

My favorite song at Black and Blue, by far. Simply as a player, I think Wayne Perkins had the ability to take where Mick Taylor brought to the band and continue or improve it. Tone and soul. They chose Woody who was from the UK, and had the party vibe and rock star image...over a player like Taylor. (I personally would have loved to see what Wayne could have brought to the band on a full albu

Most tours, I think the Stones have managed to bring interesting or relevant opening acts along for the ride. Some I liked and some I was not a fan of a all, but all worth giving a listen to. J Geils, Elvis Costello, Living Colour, Beck, St Paul & The Broken Bones, Journey (not my thing), Thorogood (amazing), No Doubt (not my thing but relevant), AC/DC, Stone Temple Pilots (when they were

In 2015, a friend that went along with us to the stadium did some walking around 1 hour before the show and got a great seat for $40. If you only need a single, there are seats available for any arena or stadium show just before showtime. Because this is a big 1970s era stadium it is spread out. I've been seeing shows there since the 70s, and have season tix for Bills games. IMO, for a

I felt the same way before I saw them live a couple of times in 78 for the first time, then in 81. In 78 I felt Ronnie and Keef were weak, their weaving style did not work for me. In 81 they were much improved. They were way better in 89 and actually kept improving, in the late 90s, 2003, 2005, on to 2015 and beyond, so far. Keep and Ronnie are just blowing me away at this point, more than at a

I jumped and bought 2 in the first row of the upper deck for $163 each. Of course after 'service' fees they became $195 each. The stadium is so spread out (I was a season ticket holder for football for over 25 years) that unless you are on the first half of the floor you are likely watching most of the show on video. At least I know with being in the first row, no one will be standing

QuoteDonnebr Thanks for sharing all the information on Buffalo. I will get a ticket for the show & the wife & Kid can do a few things. I appreciate it. Take the kid to the show. He will win an award at school next Fall when he does his presentation: What I Did I MY Summer Vacation

Things to do with an 8 year old in Buffalo. A bit depends on what your 8 yr old is into. If you don't have passports for all, you'll have to stay on the US side, where there is: Niagara Falls (on the US side the Cave of the Winds or Maid Of The Mist ride can be quite an experience for an 8 yr old), Buffalo Zoo (small, but that can be a good thing if an 8 yr old is walking),

A couple of people mentioned the Hammer Lot. I just spoke with Hammer. He is trying to recover his password so he can post on the board. But he is working on trying to connect with Shidoobee also and try to put together a tailgate party at his lot, possibly with live music as he did in 2015. No real details yet, but he did want to let people know he is up for putting a party together, reserve

I am sitting out all the presales. The stadium is very close to my home, under 2 miles. But the ticket prices are way too high. If it was an indoor show, smaller venue, maybe, but not in that setting. For $400 I can see 20 other shows this summer and actually be close enough to see the band without a video screen. For the ticket I would like along the catwalk with a good view, I believe the

If flying in from Europe, it may be much cheaper to fly to Toronto, rent a car and drive the 2 hours to Buffalo. When going to Europe, we always fly out of Toronto because of the lower fares and access to many more airlines. Buffalo is a smaller city. I live just over a mile from the venue. There are a few lousy motels I would not recommend nearby, but they will be over-charging for room

Uber was pretty new to Buffalo in 2015. Much easier now for either Uber or Lift and the drivers have familiarity with getting people to the stadium for (American) football games over the last few seasons, with designated drop-off and pickup points.

I use Apple Music for everything I listen to, with the exception of bootlegs and more obscure or local releases that aren't available on the service. Gave away my turntable, receiver, speakers and 300 disc CD player, about 300 vinyl records and about as many CDs.

Good info. I experienced my first huge VIP section this past summer. Got to the venue early to ensure I would be right at the stage for the general admission event. Got in and found the closest I could get to the stage was over 100 feet away as they had a huge VIP section. Definite disappointment. Thanks for the info!

OK song, but would at best become a B side back in the 60s or 70s and quickly forgotten. But certainly not embarrassing. My shock is that Billy Preston played on it. I thought he had long ago fallen away from the Stones. Also shocked that Keef is not on it. Was it a Mick solo track originally that became a Stones track?

I used to do some print work for Jacob & Company, a boutique maker of high end watches. Their catalog would have pictures of models and various celebrities wearing the product. Baseball and soccer/football players mostly. The musicians, with the exception of Elton John were all rappers. Elton and rappers both are into 'bling' and that is what Jacob & Co is.

I have never been to a multi-day large music festival. Ideally would like to get to one in Europe for the experience, but I am also getting to an age where the bands at most festivals are not booked with people of my age in mind (DJs and rappers vocalizing over a pre-recorded backing track don't count as bands or live music to me). I see the lineup of NOLA Jazzfest has a few days with ma

I have only seen the Stones in stadium-sized venues, whether indoor or outdoor. I would love to catch a smaller venue, but that is not going to happen. The venue matters to me for most every show. I've skipped several because while I loved the band, I did not want to deal with the chronic horrible sound of the venue. Now in my less tolerant older years, I find myself debating whether to

I think the B stage is the place to showcase the band as they were at the beginning. No fancy sets or props, stacks of amps or light show. Just 5 (or 6) guys playing blues and rock-n-roll. At some of the shows I have been to with a B stage, the clearest sound of the whole show came during their B stage set.

Quoteron091 Burl's Creek festivals are notoriously bad to get into and out of. The Boots & Hearts festival last year took 3 hours to get to it from Toronto and we didn't stay until the end of the night so can't comment on how long it would have been to get away. My advice is take the shuttle bus! At least you can party, rest, eat, drink and/or sleep on the way back and leave

Wherever they pick, I hope they can rehearse with the full tour PA. In 2015 they sounded great. Seeing The Who 8 days ago, 2nd date of the tour, granted with an orchestra, but the could was flat and unbalanced for half the show. In 2019, if well-rehearsed, they should have that down.

Quoteswimtothemoon Many bargains remain for the Grand Rapids show. $20 seats plus many seats in the front for $150. Seems tickets are moving slow. Same here in Buffalo.
