What a complete insult to anyone with ears and a bank account.

A band charging top dollar should be at the top of their game, not employing backing musicians so they can get through the material.

I can't see how they would not have a PPV for this. PPV might be below the $750 price point.

I love the stones, have seen them many many times, and would love to see them again. But $750, or $450 or even $250 is out of line.

:stones:

Are those the actual ticket prices? I guess in part it serves to regulate demand, but if it doesn't include steak and a BJ it's not worth it. No band is worth $95 or more.

Generally, I agree. I paid about one an a quarter times that for ok seats to see Cream at The Garden. And I thought it was worth it for a once in a generation experience. But there was more to it than just the music...

I paid 60 bucks for Cream at the Garden. My seats were front row of the 400's with the overhang I was about 50 feet from Clapton. Know your seating chart :pimp:

i would expect a more robust tour in 2013 to fully mark their 50th anniversary.

as for side men in the band, that's been a staple since the '70's.

Holy shite! That's absurd on the $. I've seen them twice. Steel Wheels was $80 for tenth row floor, got interviewed by Kurt Loder and made it onto lolMTV. Second was about five years ago. Paid $200 for floor on the isle where they come out on the neato stage.
