How's a range of $150 to $600 sound?

Is the tour name a reference to how many mortgage's you'll have to take out to afford a ticket?

My exact reaction when my friend told me the prices.

"Huh, looks like I'll have to mortgage the house I don't own and sell my first born child that hasn't been born yet."

Could also be the t shirt prices too.

I could have sworn when they toured years back, the cheapest seats were over $400.

Probably were after the initial onsale. There's not a snowball's chance in hell of anyone getting the $150 seats, because the ticket companies will power-buy all of them the minute they go on sale & then mark the up 200%.

Sounds like Mick Taylor will be touring with the band but making "guest appearances" at all dates.

From what I've heard for the Chicago show if you want a ticket expect to pay at least $600

The face value range for Chicago is $163.02 - $622.95

Looks about the same for Oakland and SJ. Also, isn't it unusual for an arena tour to come together 30 days in advance?

Anything cheap will be gone the second they go on sale and it will raise like hell.

I mean shit even the Anthrax show here sold out and tickets on Stubhub for that are going for $100.

Damn I might actually go for $150 if they come around here, but if this is true I won't. Who would pay $500 for nose bleed seats? Way too much for a broke college kid :tongue:

Fuck, really? If I had a shit ton of cash to blow I would totally go to this, but I'll probably have no such luck. Maybe StubHub will help out on the day of the show.

Holy mother of fuck! Even for the awesomeness that is the Rolling stones, that's too much. I can go to 8 different concerts for that price.

My dad is one of the biggest Rolling Stones fans ever. I grew up listening to all the vinyls he had of them when I was a kid. He's been a fan since they began and i've been one for about 30 years now and we won't even pay what they're charging for this tour. Even $150, which seems to be the lowest for this tour, is just too damn steep. I've seen them five times before and the prices were never this high. The last time I saw them was 11 years ago and the ticket price has doubled since then.

What a big fuck you to the fans though. I didn't know you had to be a rich man in order to be a Stones fan. I hope because of the short notice and the high prices these shows don't sell as well as they hoped. No band, not even Rush or Iron Maiden is worth spending this kind of cash to see.

FUCK! It's the same day as Cannibal Corpse and I have to pass the United Center to get to the Bottom Lounge. That means a whole 'nother traffic jam once I brave the horrors of 290. Better take the train, I guess.

That's never happening. This tour could start tomorrow and they would sell out these venues.

I agree on everything else though. The most i've ever paid for a ticket after a service charge is $100 for Metallica in 2009 and I was in the lower bowl, and I thought THAT was expensive, but it being a bucket list item for me and Metallica being one of my favourite bands it was still a no-brainer. I would think that depending on how much people love a band they would be somewhat insensitive to the price, but yeah....$650 for a band whose members are pushing (if not already) 70. Man...

This would be the only reason I would pay this kind of dough... The MT era is by far my favorite!! That being said, I won't be paying that kind of dough for this.

I was going to try to see these guys, but no way I'm paying 150 plus ass reaming fees to see these old fucks. I don't like them that much. Shit will sell out no matter what.

can't win. kind of glad they're not hitting ATL (so far?), as a result.
