    Looks like two price bands.
    £60 standard, assume that's in the stands.
    £250 for what they're calling the Golden circle.

    Very apt for the Ricoh
    Another load of has-beens looking for a last payday



    .....and before you bite, I was a big fan of the Stones when they were young and i was young

    Bit of sad agism going on here.
    They're giants whatever their age.

    Go for the cheaper seats which will be £60 - £95 then.
    Well worth a try.

    £250 to watch a band for a few hours and yet people go ape shit about a season ticket which gives you 23 football matches at £299.

    They won't be the same people.
    Your on Mick Jaggers knee for £250. Your own seat will be I guess £60 or £95 on the pitch.

    For the avoidance of doubt, as they say, I am older than Mick Jagger, but while I would have gone to see them in the 60s as they were, for a time, my favourite band, I wouldn't go now.

    Don't get sucked in by this. It's just the Wasps B team rolling stones around a stage for two hours. Eastwood is a cunning businessman.

    It appears it hasn’t been announced officially, the CT seem to have had a tip off.

    Looks like St Mary's Southampton is also putting them on but not added to the relevant websites yet .
    Edit :- Even Ricoh Arena aren't willing to confirm yet either.

    I did wonder why there was no Birmingham/ Midlands gig on
    the original tour list, must have still been in negotiations.

    Wow.
    Can't believe the negativity, I for one won't be going but I am just happy that the City has another highlight coming it' way and keeping it on the map.
    It is like people just hate us getting anything.

    So they are old but still one of the biggest bands in the world, and they are coming to our City and not Brum what is there not to like.

    Said to the wife ten years ago that we must see the Stones before one escapes this mortal coil - they were fantastic - so here i am saying lets go again if we can get a ticket - bit like getting a forest green or Brighton ticket for the mighty Sky Blues !

    If you’ve got your stub from Stevenage away this season you’ll be fine!

    Crazy though it is I reckon stuff they had 30-40 years ago would still fit, mine would although might have to take half an inch off the leg as the the cartelage has gone.

    Thought you might mean that lovely Stones beer - Sheffield Gold!

    Now that would have been a coup.

    ... and a great day again for promoting the city of Coventry.
    The next five years will be very important for it.

    That' the way to do it.

    That is the reason for all the sour grapes on here our landlords.
    Well I still think it is great and am happy for the whole City.
