That makes no sense. Mick Jagger is old enough to be the grandfather to some of the people that post in this forum.

Heck, Mick Jagger is probably the grandfather of Roger Daltrey.

What's the Stones' next tour entitled? "The Steel Walker" tour?

I hope I wasn't being taken seriously. It does make me chuckle picturing Mick Jagger strutting around the stage with a walker. I saw the Stones back in '89 (I think). Great show, but too much emphasis on the new stuff. With what they charge now, I hope they realize that no one wants to shell out that kind of cash to hear new material, unless it completely rocks, but with one or two exceptions, the Stones have not put out anything significant in the last 15 years or so.

Actually tix for Tweeter Center in Mansfiled MA have been on sale since Tues in an internet presale...haven't seen anthing too good, typical of presales. Tweeter Center has added "uncovered reserved seats" in place of part of the lawn this year, FYI for those around New England.

As for the Who, they have a top price of $150.00 (plus $6.50 facility charge at Tweeter ), so they make U2 look like a bargain, and I'm sure the Stomes will make the Who look like a bargain later this year. (Expect top prices at least $300).

That being said, the Who are worth seeing, even nowadays. I saw them in 2000 and they were very good, and anyone who saw the concert for NY knows they were the best act on stage that night.

Well said Hewson. I saw the NYC concert and thought they rocked the house. I grew up listening to them in the 70's along with the Stones, Zepplin, and Tull just to name a few and have never seen the Who live. Actually after seeing their performance at NYC, that's what makes me want to see them even more. I did notice the presale but didn't know the password (tho I'll admit I tried a few just for the hell of it, like "FOOLED", "TOMMY", "WHO", etc) needless to say none were it. Oh well, tics will be on sale tommorrow anyway, and like you said, presales are nothing great...

Wow...I must have missed that! Thanks for the info! We're only about an hour and a half from the Palace.

You were on the right track, password was "pinball", but Fri you didn't need it after noon for some reason. Did you get anything this morning (I forgot to get online until it was 10:30), but I'll watch for a release, thats what I did last time, and got section 2 row K at Tweeter.

too bad no one good is coming to any of the venues in my city. the only ones (good and/or bad) worth noting are linkin park plays here tonight, nelly furtado is playing soon, and so is n stink. oh yeah, on 8/16, they're doing this 25th anniversary elvis thang at the pyramid. methinks it's a bunch of stupid impersonators, i can't remember, but it's been advertised for a year now. wtf?
