Nice gesture to sell Lucky Dips at £60 for a pair.

No doubt someone at AXS is in for a bollocking today though after the system allowed ticket buyers to purchase anything from 1 to 6 tickets until the glitch was rectified and changed to  2 per purchase.

I'm sure the promoters were fuming at the thought that several people were buying 6 tickets for £200 while at the same time they're trying to offload single seats for much the same price.

I'd expect more LD ticket drops for most (or all) of the same shows between now and the day of the gigs.

But hey, £30 to see the Stones in London in a stadium. Just like it was in 1995. Although you know what THAT means - 'Sparks Will Fly' will be performed EVERY night.

Ha!

No offence taken!

I've been on since nine trying to sort out standing tickets!

I've still got the checking status orange clock spinning but all account info ready.

However I've gone on the ticket site and it says all standing tickets are gone!

Am I waisting my time or are they gone to everyone other than those with the spinning clock?!

Thanks!!!





They'll release more. God knows when, but they will. 

With GA tickets, because they're not reserved seating, there'll always be ticket drops while they're figuring out the configuration of the stage and how many the pitch can hold.

You have three months. You'll get them for face value no problem. There'll also always be people on the various fan boards with extras.  Dont pay above the asking price to anyone and avoid all of these rip off secondary market and broker sites. 

In fact I'd bet that on the day of the shows, if you turned up without a ticket you'll find one in any category you want for no more than face value.

Dublin update...


https://www.herald.ie/news/no-appeal-right-over-decision-on-licence-for-stones-c...


Dubliners objecting to a licence for the Rolling Stones to play at Croke Park will have no right of appeal if it is granted.

The application for an Outdoor Event Licence by Aiken Promotions is currently with the city council's planning section which is considering whether to allow the May 17 concert.

People objecting to the stadium hosting a fourth musical event there this year have until next Monday to formally lodge their submissions to the council before the public consultation process closes.

However, if they are not happy with the decision of the council, there is no further action available to them, such as taking it to An Bord Pleanala.

When asked what procedures are in place for anyone objecting to a final decision by the council, a spokesperson told the Herald: "There is no appeal mechanism on the decision of Dublin City Council relating to an event licence."

Tour

This week, the veteran rockers confirmed plans to open the second leg of their European No Filter tour in Dublin. They want to play Croke Park in May before playing a string of dates around the UK and on the continent, including Germany, France and Poland.

However, given that the stadium operators have already used their three permitted exemption dates for Taylor Swift playing two nights there and Michael Buble performing in July, they must get another licence for it to go ahead.

Asked when a decision was due back from Dublin City Council (DCC), a spokesperson for Aiken said it was out of their hands entirely at this stage.

"It's when the process is completed by the statutory bodies, the DCC," she said.

However, a decision could come back as early as next month, before the tickets, which are priced from €71 to €181, go on sale on March 23.

A select number of VIP packages will also be available to diehard fans.

The council can give a decision any time from when the consultation process ends but must give a definitive answer no later than four weeks before the event.

If the concert does get the council's go-ahead, tickets are expected to sell out extremely quickly, given that it has been 11 years since the Stones played in Ireland.

The week of the planned show is set to be a busy one for Dublin concert-goers given that award-winning singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran will perform three sell-out dates in the Phoenix Park on May 16, 18 and 19.

That article is a few days old, so the 'next month' comment refers to March.

Contrary to what has been posted on some boards and social media pages today following an RTE radio interview with Ronnie this morning in which he said how much he was looking forward to the gig, NO decision has been made yet on the licence application.



Here's a link to Ronnie's interview on The Ryan Tubridy Show this morning (thanks, Cristiano)

Southampton (May 29) and Coventry (June 2) added to tour on IORR as "probobly"...which means the date is confirmed by insiders, but not officially announced yet.

E
vidently it was somewhat optimistic to schedule a potential additional Manchester gig on June 2nd.

Looks like the Stones are going to be 'sent to Coventry' on Charlie's birthday!

These shows will probably be the most 'intimate' of this tour. The Ricoh Arena in Coventry would hold about 36-40,000 for a concert and St Marys Stadium in Southampton around 30-32,000.

I don't see the connection...but frankly...the last 3-4 tours have seemed like farewell tours to me...I always wonder how they will do it...announce a final string of 4 shows at London's O2 or RAH ( kinda depressing )? Make an announcement at the one final show at the encore ( Drop the Mick! ) ? Wait till Keef just collapses on stage ( total RnR!! )?


And seriously...do you think they would really end it in of all places, Poland?
It's not a kin  as if The Beatles played their last show in Hamburg...besides...the last show will be a PPV spectacular...thats the clue you have to keep an eye out for.

9 shows if Dublin comes off. All stadiums.

We got 3 festival dates in 2013
2 arena shows in London in 2012
3 arena shows plus, Isle of Wight Festival and Slane in 2007
5 stadium shows in 2006
11 shows in 2003 (2 stadiums, 8 arenas, 1 theatre)
5 shows in 1999 (4 stadiums, 1 theatre)
5 shows in 1995 (4 stadiums, 1 theatre)
10 shows in 1990 (all stadiums)
10 shows in 1982 (6 stadium shows, 3 theatres, 1 club)
14 shows in 1976 (8 arena shows, 5 theatres, 1 festival (Knebworth)
12 shows in 1973 (4 arenas, 8 theatres)

The last 'standalone' British Tour was  the 'Farewell Britain' tour in 1971.

This is certainly the biggest UK tour in terms of ticket availability and spreading it around the country since 1990 - its the first time to me since then that its felt like a 'proper' tour as from 1990 onwards, London has always got a disproportionately high percentage of UK shows.
28 out of 43 by my reckoning


Discounting the two festival dates in 2007 and 2013 , the Stones havent played a UK show of their own outside London since 2006.

Certainly feels like a farewell to me too. As I decided after 2014 I wouldnt travel overseas to see them again I'm pretty sure Twickenham will be my last show.  We're realistically looking at another 3-4 years before they could play here again and I dont expect them to still be a touring act by then.

I dont think Poland will be their last show, if thats what you mean.

Had this tour just been a string of UK shows ending at Twickenham - so close to where they really started to make a name for themselves at the Crawdaddy in Richmond -  I'd have taken that as an ironic and somewhat poignant hint that they were winding things up.

While I dont think they'll go on the road again this year, I'd expect them to keep going for a while longer, with probably some US dates in 2019.

But realistically we are in the home straight now. I wouldnt count on another series of shows on home turf.  If anyone has a visit to the UK to see the Stones as part of their bucket list, I reckon its now or never.  Its a lot to expect that in a band where theyre all now between 70 and 76 that all four of them will be capable of doing this to a standard that they're all happy with in 3-4 years time.
