    As much as I love their music, they're being real *****s. What about people who paid tons of cash for the tickets to one of your "farewell" shows? I mean...They're just milking the fans. Disappointed.
    I don't think they ever said it was "fairwell" shows, it was to mark their anniversary
    You say this as if you WANT it to be their last show... let the Stones play on forever...
    I hope I get to see them! But the tickets will probably be an arm and a leg plus everyone's firstborn.
    Actually I would hope that they would strip down the concerts to help keep costs down. They're doing Glastonbury for peanuts because they can't have their big setup. Would be a real sign to the fans, instead of doing the huge setups they did in December, which they said was why tickets were so high, to make it a real simple, rocking show like they did in the 70's.
    I used to dislike their music, when I was a young immature metal head, so now that I've grown up, I feel blessed to finally have the chance to see those guys before they retire for good. Looking forward to that.
    Wonder how much there ticket prices will be this time, 400? 2000? if other bands can tour around for about 40 a ticket then they can do the same, all they care about is money and not the benefit of the fans anymore
