Fans waiting for word of new Rolling Stones tour dates got an email today announcing the first of many concerts for the Stones “50 and Counting” tour. So far only two tour stops have been set with the first Stones concert kicking off on November 25th at the O2 Arena in London and after a second night on the 29th the band will perform at the Providence Center in New Jersey on December 13th and 15th. With that announcement came the highest Rolling Stones ticket prices since the band started touring in 1963.
Rolling Stones ticket prices have always been amongst the highest for touring bands and the last time the Stones toured from 2005-2007 the ticket prices for “A Bigger Bang Tour” had a face value of about $400 per ticket for the best seats. That price will be double for the upcoming Rolling Stones concert tour with the highest priced tickets running just over $800 per seat with the service charges included.
The cheapest tickets for the Stones will run about $114 per seat but don’t expect those to sit around very long once the concerts go on sale. “Fans can expect the Rolling Stones tickets to be sold out in minutes if not seconds even at those prices” according to Greg Cullen of Preferred Seating. “But they can still save some money on the secondary market by comparing ticket prices before buying”.
So far there has been no word about VIP packages for the Rolling Stones tour. Paul McCartney had a special front row package for $2000 per ticket which may have set a record for the highest face value for a concert ticket and the Stones could easily sell that ticket if they wanted to. It’s safe to say more tour dates will be released soon, primarily for the full 2013 tour schedule.
The Rolling Stones tickets went on sale today for the London concerts at the O2 Arena and the first pre-sale for the Stones concert at the Prudential Center will be this Saturday at 10am. Preferred Seating Tickets has been buying and selling tickets for the Rolling Stones concerts since 1987 and make price comparisons easy with their “no hidden service fee” policy.
