I'm thinking about the meaning of the No Filter tour name. It reminds me of back in the day when cigarettes were sold without filters. The smoke was very raw. So No Filter may symbolize the music will be very raw and unfiltered, possibly unplugged style or just the opposite, a more electric style with no filters meaning cutting down on the gimmicks and extras.

I can't figure out the pricing...

What's "regular" and what's "no filter pit"
(at around 200 euro)

I guess both are field tickets but very pricey, and  they seem to be more expensive than the seats???

I'm gonna try and pre-order on the app
tomorrow. I can already feel it will be a disaster...

Perhaps the intention is to keep UK and Euro dates separate and to do gigs in London (and Glasgow and Skeggy) as a mini-tour, titled 'Off Kilter' or 'None Filthier'; or similar.

I think you're overthinking WAY too much!

Its just a buzzword to be exploited with marketing gimmicks

Unplugged. In stadiums?  Grin

Its now 10th May, the summer tour plans were scrapped some time ago, Croke Park has already had its permitted allocation of concerts for the year confirmed weeks ago and this guy has just figured out they wont be playing there this summer?

I know things move a bit more slowly in this part of the world, but Christ....  Grin

So you guys COME ON..UK venues, and NOW!


No. Not tax reasons. Thats a non issue.

The tour was rumoured to be September - November.  The crew are contracted to November, I understand.

So as there are no dates scheduled after October 22nd, it is possible that there's room for a UK visit after Paris.

If it is, its a bit of a shitty bait and switch as I'm sure a lot of fans there will book trips to the continent assuming we're not getting any shows.

They really should have made some statement clarifying that they are or are not planning UK shows on this leg.

The Stones always do this because they want us all to buy the first round of tickets, and then they add additional shows after the first ones sell out. There is always a surprise or two. But 13 shows per tour seems to be the new normal so maybe this is it for now and they will see how it goes.

I want London shows too!

I'm sure they will play London.
It would be the first time surely that a Euro' Tour excluded London shows.

Tried my luck on the app presale for Italy tickets, but the stupid Ticketone site kept requesting a captcha and then saying there were no tickets available over and over again (till finally there REALLY were no tickets available). And I hit that button at precisely 10.00 o' clock  Cheesy Hope I'm luckier when they go on general sale in a couple of days.

P.S. Those are some crazy ticket prices.

Panic panic panic this morning with my tiny little iPhone screen on that fucking Stones app.

BUT....

I've got em!

4 GOLD tickets for Paris...

right in front of the stage...

And I was lucky cos they were the ONLY tickets available...

or wait...

Maybe not...

Maybe I just bought 4 fucking tickets at 330 euros each to be in the fucking stands!!!!

"Category GOLD" as it turns out, is NOT the same as "pelouse OR",

Though GOLD mean OR in French... just to confuse things...


fuckerthyfuckfuck.

SG is correct...Wembly Stadium...OPEN...Arena (though Small) OPEN...O2...OPEN...The Intimate Royal Albert Hall is busy...but is open to a point.

Maybe I dont know the venues well enuff in/around London...but there it is...

______________________________


Sadly ... in a sense I see your point ...The Stones do short change the UK at times. When they do give them a shot it is always last and a year later?

I hope they do a few shows in London at least. I know you will make your way to see them most likely one way or another and for the fans across the pond I am truly happy for ya-all ..  (don't forget.. it is a brand new show / stage etc. That is gonna be cool).

The general sale for Lucca tickets began 3 minutes ago. I was there, clicked with the speed of light, got the "no tickets available, try again". I keep trying and no luck. I mean, why on earth can't they get an online system that actually works for tickets? Why do we need to suffer this craziness? Argh.

I remember that.
If I recall correctly, ( and there is a good chance that I dont) there was some "quite change" in the UK tax corporate code that would have had them pay taxes on ALL shows played in that year IF they even played ONE show in the UK...prolly not at the same rate as the actual UK shows, I would assume...but it was something like that...so maybe the UK will get a few nice shows next RS fiscal year if those laws are still in place.
