Stones Ticket Sales Rolling Along

Jill Crow and her friends spent the night together lining up for Rolling Stones tickets and discovered you can always get what you want.

“They’re such a big band, they’re legends,” said Crow. “It will be great to just go and see them and say that we did.”

Crow and her three friends slept only a few hours while camping outside the Halifax Metro Centre.

When the ticket office opened at 10 a.m. Monday, about 150 people were lined up looking for tickets to the Stones’ Sept. 23 show.

But Tom Melloy, who works security at the centre, says he’s seen longer lines, particularly for the Garth Brooks concert in 1996.

“We’ve seen [fans] way up Brunswick Street,” he said.

Melloy believes the line for the Stones is smaller because more people are buying tickets online, and because there are simply more of them available.

The Stones concert is being held at the Halifax Common, the central park that hosted 80,000 people for Pope John Paul II’s visit in 1984.

Organizers expect 60,000 people will turn out to see the British rockers.

“I think we will sell tens of thousands of tickets today,” Fred MacGillivray, chairman of Events Halifax, said early Monday.

“I think the concert will definitely sell out.”

Though the $99 (plus service charge) tickets for the public went on sale Monday, special VIP tickets went on sale Wednesday. Tickets are already on eBay, with some special gold seats listed at $400 and up.

Meanwhile, organizers are still working out the details of how to manage the concert crowd.

Alice Cooper is the opening act.
