Okay, now I have a stupid question, since I never cared about the rollingstones.com webb page. It says the tickets for Rome go on sale on March the 21st, the pre-sale starts on March the 20th.
What is the pre-sale? Is it for the RS.com members? I can't seem to find any "become a member" link or anything. Is it payed? I remember I had some free membership some 7 years ago, but logged in like twice and I forgot everything about it and I guess it doesn't work any more anyway.
Tickets available now for Werchter on ticketmaster.be
The list of shows looks interesting now. There are 3 June shows in between Rome (22) and Madrid (25). I think it is safe to say there will be no show between those 2 dates. I know, they had to be put somewhere on the list and there is no suitable space for 3 shows anywhere :-)
Anyway, in June there are still 2 dates left among those rumored ones - June the 1st and 16th and there are 3 dates - Stockholm, Dublin, Vienna. I think we can assume they will do a show on the 1st and Stockholm is the one most likely, since it is quite early, the weather is more uncertain than later and the Stockholm Friends arena roof can be closed, right? Also it would make sence if they moved from Oslo to Stockholm.
Vienna on the 16th between Paris and Dusseldorf sounds quite right, more than Dublin to me.
But of course, any of those rumored places and dates might (and probably will) change and then all my speculations would change too. :-) And there might be no Vienna a no Dublin after all.
I NEED to know those dates already, I have been waiting to buy a Clapton ticket to Vienna for the June 26th and there will be none before I know the Stones dates! If we got the Madrid show on the 25th confirmed, then I could buy that Clapton ticket :-)
Wonder what will happen with Hamburg and Cologne.
There will be MANY superfans there, and those who do not think the Stones - after 50+ years in the business - is worth that extra money, once in a lifetime, will be left out.
Waldbuhne is intimate. The distance to stage from top level is not the same as in Olympia Stadium. Everybody has a pretty good view of stage. Capacity - according to Wikipedia - is 22.000.
Any idea what will be capacity for Rome concert I do you think it will sell out so fast as those 2?
"Gli organizzatori stiamo tra le 60.000 e le 65.000 persone presenti."
The European Tour start will be in Oslo Norway Telenor Arena for sure, no question about that, tour finish Roskilde Denmark, and Friends Arena Stockholm Sweden in-between these end points some place, don't have that date exact yet. Like I said quite a few days ago. All three countries in Scandinavia.
It seems that my greatest fear is coming true. I've booked a trip to Dublin to see a Dylan-concert on the 17th. The only likely dates for Friends arena in June is on the 1st and the 16th, if the rumoured shows comes through and they follow the pattern of two resting days between shows.
My guess is that Tel Aviv and Oslo are taken off the list soon:
A concert in Tel Aviv in 10 weeks, and tickets are no where near being on sale yet. They cant sell 40.000 in that short time. So they will give up soon.
Oslo is taken off the list soon, and they focus on Friends Arena in Stockholm.
A Hamburg stadium concert can still be added to the list, particularly as Berlin is currently the only Northern Germany concert on the list, and Waldbuhne is a "club" concert with limited capacity.
