    Funny thing is that there were a lot of people accusing the Stones of milking the audience & overcharging, questioning whether or not the band really needed that much money. They were a whole $1.00 more than Blind Faith.

    Re: Rock & Roll Historical Perspective

    First time I saw the Stones was in 1981. Tickets were $25 which was SKY HIGH to me then when other concerts were going for about $12-15 a ticket. I have the t-shirt from that show too which I think was around $10. I saw them in 2004 and the cheap seats were $70 and the floor seats a whopping $400.

    First concert I ever went too was in 1977 and the tickets were $6.50 I have saved all my ticket stubs over the years.

    I saw the Stones when they played at the Colisseum - it was about '90. Can't remember what the tickets cost, but I do remember that they rocked the house.

    I saw them at Shea Stadium in '89. I have no clue what we paid for the tickets but I vividly rember the show opening in the pouring rain with Mick Jagger dressed in a cape doing Sympathy For The Devil....still gives me chills!

    That was the Steel Wheels Tour in 89 and 90 and what impressed me was the GINORMOUS sleezy women balloons that inflated over the stage during Honky Tonk Women. We stayed in a hotel that probably 90% of the guests went to that concert and the hotel ROCKED all night long. It was a fantastic weekend and a great show. Living Color opened the show.

    What impressed me were the actual sleazy women we saw climbing scaffolding in mini-dresses and super high heels at the request of the crew. We were in line for the port-a-potties and right next to where we were standing was this scaffolding system that led to a large area that was covered with a black velvet curtain. Not sure where they were going but the men in our group sure enjoyed watching them climb.

    Re: Rock & Roll Historical Perspective

    I went to a big festival at the Riverside Raceway in 1974 called the California Jam. It was:
    Rare Earth
    Earth Wind & Fire
    Seals & Crofts
    The Eagles
    Black Oak Arkansas
    Black Sabbath
    Deep Purple
    Emerson Lake & Palmer

    Total cost $10.00, I still have the ticket stub.

    Thanks. Good to know that someone keeps ticket stubs.

    Razorbacker, that had to be a good show. And for $10 too.

    The Eagles are coming in Jan. And they will have Joe Walsh with them. I want to go, but tickets are $85, $110, $135 and $185.

    I have never seen the Eagles, but I'm just not sure that I can spend even $170 for 2 tickets in the cheap seats (nose bleed section, bring your own oxygen) and I can damn sure tell you that I am NOT spenging $370 for the good seats.
