The Rolling Stones will play four announced dates, two in London and two in Newark over the next few weeks. Rolling Stones tickets are available now and there’s been considerable controversy over pricing. Some say the Stones have priced themselves out of the average man’s market. I wouldn’t venture to guess whether that’s so but I would say that we have to fall back on supply and demand to get a good read on this thing. I’m one of millions that got Rolling Stones tickets in past years and enjoyed their concerts. In my case it was a superb performance in the Louisiana Superdome that brings back memories. I’m sure there are thousands of other Rolling Stones concert stories out there. But back to supply and demand.
The bottom line is this: The Rolling Stones have been around for 50 years and are still capable of delivering good Rock and Roll in a live concert. How long do you think that’s going to be true. As much as we may hate to admit it, the Stones won’t be around another 50 years. therefore the supply of Rolling Stones tickets is dwindling. On the other hand their reputation is so massive that demand is still growing. That means the Rolling Stones can command pretty much whatever they want for tickets. It’s reality folks and we can’t escape it. You’ve got a limited amount of time to see a Rolling Stones concert. Do it or miss it. We all have the choice.
