There's a teaser on their web site counting down to Wednesday. Also, billboards with the toungue and some of their iconic lyrics with Wednesday at the bottom are in various cities (LA, NYC, Vegas, San Fran and Chicago are all I've read so far, hoping for one (and a show) in Detroit too).

Been reported that it'll be an 18 show arena tour. There had been previous reports that they'd likely play multiple shows in select cities when they toured, but with only 18 dates they may have scrapped that idea for a shorter, mobile tour. Who knows, guess we'll find out Wednesday.

Where'd you find those dates? Haven't seen anything anywhere online but here. Those go along with everything that's been said about the tour so far though.

I guess their final tour wasn't their final tour; shocking. Was worth seeing them for Mick Taylor alone.

I wonder if ticket prices will be as steep this go around? They played about 30 minutes longer than usual and they had the guests. We'll see.

That's going to be what makes it or breaks it for me. If they come to Detroit (highly unlikely) not an issue. But if I have to travel to Chicago or Toronto it'll depend on how much the cheap seats are since travel costs will take a nice chunk out of what I have set aside for concerts this year.

All I can say is that if you can't get cheap ones the expensive ones could be had for 50% of face value the day before the show. The scalpers got killed on that one in Newark; and I went the Saturday night when it was full of guests and was the official smulcast show

I wonder how many extra musicians they will have on stage to prop up what was once a great band. I wouldn't pay 1/4 of the crazy ticket prices they charge to see them at this point. They are a shell of what they once were but still charge more than they or any band were ever worth IMO.

Keif and Ronnie went through the motions. Mick put it out there for 2 1/2 straight hrs. Him and McCartney are the only two of that generation that put it out at such a high (though their voices are not what they were) energy level

They will be Toronto for sure, billboards everywhere. They tend to rehearse here before the shows as well and do a couple of intimate gigs. I do recall the one at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern about 10 years ago. Maybe 200 people in the room. Pretty cool and how you want to see them in my opinion. Would love to see them do a Beacon run, Massey Hall, Fox Theatre etc. But alas no................

When I last saw them on the 'Bridges to Babylon' tour they played exactly 2 hours. Having paid $96.00 at the time for far corner seats at Madison Square Garden I felt ripped off even though I liked the show and I vowed never to get ripped off like that again. Most I have paid for a single band show since then was $150.00 to see Gov't Mule from the 8th row of a venue that holds less than 450 people. They played for 2 hours and 45 minutes and in that kind of venue made it more than worth it. The Eagles and the Stones and anyone else who charge such crazy prices for arena shows can stick it where the sun don't shine. They ain't seeing another penny from me. Glad I got to see them all before they went into greed mode.

one thing i know, no one in the rolling stones has ever stated anything as a farewell tour. they always remain very vague and give answers that are just as vague. here is also an official press release from the stones official site calling the shows last year 50 AND COUNTING meaning could be more shows:

The Stones (and all the other overhyped, overpriced, big name acts) lost me as a paying customer when their ticket prices went over 50 dollars per ticket.
These days I stick to the small theaters and clubs where tickets are usually between 20 to 40 dollars and you have a shot at great seats for those prices.
I recently had front row center for Billy Joe Shaver at a club for $25
Also got second row (slightly left of center) for The Residents for $30
And just got front row center for Sonny Landreth for $28
Lots of great bands out there playing small venues who don't gouge their fans.

Average ticket prices are $200 a ticket......speechless. Mick deserves to fall off the stage and snap a hip for this. Sorry bucket list, not giving $200 to see a bunch of decrepit skeletons.
