    Were 3 day passes fetching more than $500 on the street in 2007?

    Was the "only US show" thing in any official ads or just media article mumbo jumbo?

    The 75-80,000 passes include upwards of 11,000 VIP passes SOLD. 12% of the tickets issued, 25% of the gross.

    2012 must be a difference in guestlist/media requests. All official Billboard numbers.
    are those attendance numbers or tickets sold?

    i'm not going to believe for a second that there were more people there this year than in 2010. although there did seem to be more people there wknd 2 than wknd 1.

    yes, far more. i remember it being around $600, for the cheapest, like i said about double ticket cost.

    i don't remember if it was advertised, but i definitely heard it said in media, maybe rolling stone, idr

    2010 had upwards of 10,000 people sneak in. An interviewers asked Tollett about that number and he gave a "I'm not good with numbers" type answer. Suffice to say, security and wristbands were much more sophisticated in 2011.

    Yes. but almost ALL of those people HAD paid, just to a scalper for a VOIDED wristband. I would be curious to get from GV the number of 'lost' wristbands during shipping, where a customer told Frontgate they never received the wristband, they get shipped a new one, the old one is voided in the system, then the person sells the voided wristband on Craigslist or at the gate.. almost all the people i saw fence jumping had wristbands, they just didn't work. most of the gate rushers were people whose wristband wouldn't scan. I even saw somebody when they were scanning us to leave, he tried to fake it with his and just keep walking, knowing his wristband wouldn't scan, but he was leaving so what were they going to do?

    In previous years guests would receive a wristband good for stage access or backstage access(no stage), or prior to that just a side stage or main stage wristband. The heart wristband last year was for guests and basically the same as the "backstage" band the year before, same access and all. And comps are all but gone. I recall hearing there being 5,000+/day back in the mid 00's when they were still building the brand, down to fewer than 500 towards the end of the decade, now there are basically zero. Bands get some to hand out to friends, but even some of the smaller groups have a hard time getting enough to cover roadies. Many celebs probably have their management buy the passes for 'em.

    After that performance on TV last night, I will certainly skip any future stone shows. I didn’t know they were that bad.

    they weren't..but old people age a lot in 6-7 years..

    it was the first stones performance i've ever seen that lacked energy and jagger's swagger looked completely forced. glad the set was shortest of the night.

    i thought quite the contrary.... i would love them at coachella but someone saying they're not worth 20% of the talent budget kind of has a point. either way, i would like them there this year.

    you're nuts if you think 10 million is 20% of their talent budget...i'd say, on an average year, that is the entire talent budget (if that).

    One press report had the Coachella talent budget at $30m, both weekends. Top 4 headliners getting a rumoured $12 m total.

    Stones are getting $5m or so per performance in 2012. It be 6-7 million for both weekends to get them, which is in line with Prince and Macca.

    They want at least 8 million a show now. They hate each other, they hate performing but will do a few shows in 2013 if the pay is alright.

    For an arena with 16,000 seats that's $500 per ticket AVERAGE just to get the band there. 40,000 stadium is $200.

    Arena shows on bigger bang tour had ticket grosses in the $1.5-2m range.

    COACHELLA 2013: Will the Rolling Stones top lineup?According to Rolling Stone, The Rolling Stones posted a tour date for Indio, Calif. in April via the band’s mobile app and then took it down.

    Posted on | December 14, 2012
    Press Enterprise - by Vanessa Franko

    From Rolling Stone:
    “A pair of new dates appeared under the tour section of the bands’ mobile app: the first was an April 12th stop in Indio, California, listed as “Coachella 2013.” Fans posted a screengrab on Twitter and various fan sites. By 10:30 a.m. EST, the date was taken down.”


    The 2013 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will have twin editions April 12-14 and April 19-21 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.

    The band has only scheduled a few dates for its 50th anniversary tour, including another night in New Jersey this weekend. They appeared for two songs on the 12-12-12 concert benefit for victims of Sandy.

    This image released by Starpix shows Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones performing at the 12-12-12 The Concert for Sandy Relief at Madison Square Garden in New York on Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2012. Proceeds from the show will be distributed through the Robin Hood Foundation. (AP Photo)

    I really thought the Stones were going to play last year after news broke out a while back about contracts with the band and Coachella. Would love to see them live there, too.

    So what do you think, readers? Will The Stones headline? Was it a prank? If they are headlining, would you go see them?

    Want more Coachella 2013 predictions? I tag all of mine Coachellaology.

    Quick catch-up if you’re just joining us: I’ve covered Coachella since 2007 and I posted my first round of predictions, my opening bracket for Coachellaology, if you will, a few weeks ago. The first round of predictions: Mumford and Sons, Deadmau5, Blur and Local Natives. Then, Audio File readers got into the act and second round included the obligatory Daft Punk prediction, plus The Stone Roses, Watch the Throne, Depeche Mode and Eminem. Third round: Nine Inch Nails/How to Destroy Angels, Queens of the Stone Age, Run DMC, Rocket from the Crypt reunion and Passion Pit. Fourth round: Sigur Ros and Pearl Jam, the latter celebrating 20 years since the band’s 1993 show at the Empire Polo Club for promoter Goldenvoice that planted the Coachella seed. Then I posted about Nick Cave, Tegan and Sara and Converge. Just the other day, I predicted the Airborne Toxic Event, too.
