The Rolling Stones’ upcoming ‘50 and Counting’ tour dates have many Rock and Roll fans in a frenzy, though some have already counted out the possibility of attending a concert in anticipation of high ticket prices.
To ease the minds (and wallets) of those fans, the UK rockers took to their official website over the weekend to report that more than one thousand lower-priced tickets will be available for the forthcoming festivities.
The post reads:
“As a part of the general onsale, there will be something for everyone, including over 1,000 tickets at $85 (including service charges). Some will be among the best seats in the house in the Tongue Pit, with others spread around the arena. Tickets will be sold as a pair. You will find out your seat location when you pick them up the night of the show. Other tickets range from $150- $600 (plus service charges). More details will be released on Monday, along with the links to purchase these tickets.”
While $85 may still not seem to fall in the inexpensive category, it’s good to know that these more affordable seats won’t necessarily be in the nosebleed section.
So far, the group has announced stops in Los Angeles, Oakland, San Jose, Las Vegas, Anaheim, Toronto, Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia, with tickets for the North American tour going on sale today (April 8).
The Stones will also headline the UK’s Glastonbury Festival on June 29 and play London’s Hyde Park on July 6 (with a rumored second date pending).
