I'm seeing The Rolling Stones at the Orpheum

Ticketmaster.com, I love you (at least this morning). I got through for a pair of Stones tix at the Orpheum theater in Boston. Lousy seats, but in a 2800 seat thaeter, even he lousy seats are good.
To quote Homer Simpson: "WOO HOO!"

Yay-so am I. I've never been there before Wow-only 2800

I can't believe my luck

I'm taking my Mom-the Stones are almost as 'old' as she is

OMG-Mick is only 7 years younger..

Wow Gina...That's great. I was so sure when I filled out the purchase page I was gonna get ticketmaster's "Busy- too many users trying to process transactions" message, that I almost didn't believe my eyes when I had seats. Got row Y in the balcony, almost as bad as you can get, but I'm in the house.

Great Mother's Day gift you got for Mom(My mother's only geting some chocolates and scratch tickets ).

I'm in the balcony too.
I think my comp clock said 10:06 when I got mine-they sold out in about 10-15 minutes.

Do you know who the opening act is? I read The Pretenders are opening at CMGI-I would love to see them. When I was younger, I always wanted to be Chrissie Hynde She's so Mick said Sheryl Crow and No Doubt might be opening for some of the shows.

I've never seen the Stones live ,so I'm really looking forward to it.

I..am..so...jealous!!

Now I've got to get tix, even if all I can afford right now are the $50 nosebleeds!! A plus is that I love all the opening acts!! Damn, I wish they were playing a club here.

I read in one place that the Pretenders were opening Boston, Chicago, Philly and NY. But I haven't been able to confirm that yet. That would make the show that much better.
I've seen the Stones 5 times, 4 in Foxboro and once at The Fleetcenter. Seeing them at the Orpheum will be one of those shows people will likely talk about for years to come.
Now you say you've never been to the Orpheum...a warning. If Sep 8 is a hot day, prepare to sweat. This can be the hottest building in the city. Their air conditioning system consists of opening exit doors to fire escapes in the alley to hope for a breeze. Every show I've seen there has had a .50 or $1.00 "restoration fee" tacked on to the ticket, and in the 15 yrs I've been going, I swear they have done nothing...not even a paint job. The place needs a Wang Center style rehab, its pretty much a dump, the seats are old, the paint is peeling off the ceiling and there is no AC. The balcony also has a tendency to "bounce" a bit when the crowd is enjoying a good show. But its gonna be one great night.

OK-thanks for the info-hoping for a cool day. Reminds me of the old Garden. My Mom told me she saw Sinatra at the Orpheum, so it probably hasn't changed much since then.

If you go to their web site
www.rollingstones.com

you can sign up to get e-mail updates, and supposedly once you have a concert ticket (but for will call, I dunno how this works)you get free fan club membership. Accdg to the site, they're filming a concert DVD-maybe it will be at the Orpheum.

Please don't brag about Stones tickets. It makes me angry and jealous since I cannot get tix for Roseland or MSG(Giants Stadium has seats near the top of the stadium for $100---f--- that!; btw, if anyone has access to MSG or Roseland tix, feel free to contact me-MBH)
