The Rolling Stones release ticket info for Boston

, Staff

After announcing last week they would stop in Boston this June as part of their “50 and Counting” tour, the Rolling Stones have revealed the ticket information for their Wednesday, June 12 concert at the TD Garden. Tickets will go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster and range in price from $85 to a whopping $597.50.

As a part of the sale, the Rolling Stones will offer over a 1,000 tickets per show at $85. The band is promising that the allotment will include seats spread out across the arena, including some of the best seats in the house in the “Tongue” pit. Tickets will be sold as a pair and the location will only be disclosed to the buyer when they arrive at the show. In an attempt to thwart ticket scalpers, the band will utilize paperless ticketing for these tickets. Fans must arrive with their guests and the credit card used to purchase their tickets (along with a picture ID and confirmation number). After their credit card is scanned, fans will be issued their tickets and required to enter the arena immediately.

The Rolling Stones reunited last year for a handful of performances in London, New Jersey and Brooklyn to celebrate their 50th anniversary. On the upcoming tour, fans can expect a set packed with greatest hits and other classics, many featured on the band’s latest compilation, GRRR!. Released in November, GRRR! was released in a variety of formats including a 50-track/3-CD set and an 80-track/4-CD box set. Each contains two new songs titled “Doom and Gloom” and “One More Shot”.

Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-74, will be a special guest throughout the upcoming tour alongside frontman Mick Jagger, guitarist Keith Richards, drummer Charlie Watts and guitarist Ronnie Wood.

The Rolling Stones’ last major tour was “A Bigger Bang”, which grossed $558 million from August 2005 to August 2007.
