    Anyone hearing anything from their host about comp tickets for the May 11 Rolling Stones show @ MGM?

    Good luck with that...I just tried to get tickets for their Oakland show and even at almost $600/per ticket, they sold out immediately. Stubhub is selling tickets for $1000.+. I'm sure Vegas will be even more expensive. You better be a Whale.

    Not quite a whale. My Vegas friends call me "the dolphin" (and then make funny dolphin noises and laugh at me...and then they thank me for all the comps I share with them!!)

    Not me. That is why I am hoping for comp tickets!

    I will already be there that weekend, and already have 3 nights RFB and cabana for 2 days (and three more rooms at casino rates).... so I unfortunately think I am about at my limit on comps for the trip.

    I have a call into my host at Aria.
    I'm hoping he takes pity on me for my big losses over the last 3 trips.
    I'll let you know the answer.

    BTW I know the hosts at Aria get a lot of bad press but I am not a whale and this guy has been fantastic.

    Tickets are now on sale.


    You can buy any of the VIP packages. You can also buy regular seats if you have a Citi pre-sale password.

    If you just want to see the pre-sale seat selection, you can use code "412800" - but you will not be able to purchase them with this code, as it will only work for the person with the actual credit card at check out.

    I remember watching the Rolling Bones' Farewell Tour on Pay Per View in 1981.

    I saw them a decade later at Alpine Valley. No interest these days, even if comped.

    Thanks for the info, I just snagged a $250 ticket which is the cheapest ticket available. The stones put on a great show so anywhere in the house is a great ticket.

    A solo trip in May with STONES kicker .... life is good!!! :beer:
