Rolling Stones, Trying to Sell $600 Tickets, Find You Can't Always Get What You Want Bloomberg
The Rolling Stones are finding that you can't always get what you want, as they try to sell $600 tickets for the band’s "50 and Counting" tour that starts Friday in Los Angeles, reports Bloomberg.
Pairs of $600 floor seats were still available Wednesday for the tour kickoff at Staples Center arena.
"To anyone not working in investment banking, these are extremely expensive tickets,” Pollstar editor-in-chief Gary Bongiovanni told the publication.
Staples owner Anshutz Entertainment Group has started to lower prices as a result, with more $85 tickets going on sale. Those were the only tickets sold out for May 3, the story adds.
“By the time the show starts, they’ll fill every seat at the arena,” Bongiovanni said. “It just won’t be with people who paid $600 a seat.”
