A big No Stopping sign by a bus stop looks more like a street sign directing traffic not to stop there, so I wonder if most people don't get the connection to the Rolling Stones since there is no mention of them in the sign.



The Brits are known for subtle adverts...and...just added...

Prague and Warsaw??

I saw a "No Stopping" sign here in Dublin today. Tried to upload the picture but couldn't. Anyway, do you guys have a rough idea of how much these tickets could cost? I need to plan the kidney-selling thing. Cheers.

They'll probably vary considerably - I'd expect the Lucky Dip tickets to be pretty cheap but the top priced tickets to be about 6 or 7 times as much.

They might also vary depending on what city youre going to. London will probably be the most expensive or have a higher % of tickets in the pricier categories,

And if they play the 02 Arena, I dont even want to think about it.....

Four or five shows on the continent after the UK leg, most likely.  Have said it all along that anyone who thinks the Stones could sell 14-15 stadium shows in the UK at current prices is delusional.  Thats the equivalent of about 70 stadium shows in the US.

One thing that does strike me though that - even disregarding the name of the tour - the fact that its going to be ending somewhere in eastern Europe convinces me that they intend to do more shows beyond summer 2018.  If they were going to wrap things up this summer - as I figured might be the case - then ending at Twickenham - literally 3 miles up the road from the Crawdaddy in Richmond, where the legend REALLY began, would have been a very apt place to finish.

No offence to the people of Poland, but I dont think the Rolling Stones are intending to end their touring career in a stadium in Warsaw.

Thanks Gazza. By the way, this is interesting. This was published in Irish Times two hours ago. People living nearby Croke Park don't want a fourth concert there this year (the article doesn't say what artist/band could it be though):

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/social-affairs/croke-park-local-residents-oppose...

"Residents living near Croke Park in Dublin are to hold a public meeting opposing more concerts being held in the stadium.

The Clonliffe and Croke Park Area Residentsí Association, which represents those living within an area around the stadium that is cordoned-off for such events, are opposed to a proposed fourth concert being held this year.

Pat Gates, chairman of the group, said three concerts is the maximum number allowed under planning permission granted by An Bord PleanŠla.

Aiken Promotions has applied to Dublin City Council for an outdoor event licence for a concert in Croke Park on May 17th."

Yes, as I mentioned at the start of this thread, a show at Croke Park is not a sure thing for that reason.

However, they did allow four concerts in 2009, so theres a precedent.  Having it on a weekday makes it even more of an issue than it should be.

I think it'll go ahead at that stadium though. Hopefully Aikens have had the foresight to look into using the Aviva Stadium as a back up just in case.  It'd be pretty embarrassing if the planned first show of the tour gets pulled.

We should know more in the next few days re a tour announcement.

A nice stadium at about 32K less attendance wise for a concert

Been ages since Iíve posted in here! Hope youíre all well!

Apologies if Iíve kissed this but rumours are the Murrayfield show is June 9 which is great as itís a saturday! Easier to get a babayaitter now just need to get a ticket!

You could walk from Murrayfield to Princes Street in about 20 minutes Iíd say. Thereís now a tram route and a stop right outside Murrayfield. In All honesty itís really central so if folk are coming up you shouldnít have a problem getting somewhere nearby to stay.

Ed Sheeran is doing Hampden this summer so they might want to be using a different venue. I think someone mentioned Celtic Park and Ibrox in Glasgow but theyíre rarely used for concerts.

Iíve been to a few concerts at Murrayfield from REM to Oasis. Standard big stadium venue to be honest. Plenty of bars within walking or stumbling distance!

And either that being June and in Scotland expect it to rain!

Edinburghís hitting a bit of a purple patch for shows this summer. Noel gallagher at the castle and the likes of Kasabian and Tom Jones in Princess Street gardens!

Still never seen the Stones so will be trying all J can to get tickets. Missed them a couple of years ago in Vegas!

Thats a great username...lol

Edinburgh is my favourite part of Scotland. Enjoyed seeing the Stones at Murrayfield in '99.  It was June and whilst it was dry I was foundered!!

I think Celtic Park has been used for several shows. Ibrox rarely - mind you, I think Rod Stewart (of all people) has played Ibrox. I'm sure that was awkward .....  Grin

The British tabloid press are the only people I know of who find the combined age of any group of individuals to be of any significance whatsover.

Do they do this with orchestras?
