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.
