If you are hoping to the see the ‘World’s Greatest Rock n’ Roll Band’ live in the flesh – then it’s time to act fast and dig deep.
Tickets for The Rolling Stones’ Abu Dhabi gig have nearly all sold out, promoters Flash announced today (Sunday February 2), with only a few premium entry options still available.
At the time of writing only Gold Circle early entry tickets, priced at Dhs2,295, and Fire Pit tickets, priced at Dhs2,995, were still on sale for the band’s UAE debut.
The 11 other ticket price brackets on offer – from general entry tickets at Dhs495 right up to the Fire Pit Package at Dhs3,995 – have already sold out.
The Friday February 21 gig will see the Stones – who celebrated 50 years as a band with a duo of London Hyde Park performances last year – perform in the UAE for the first, and probably last, time.
‘This is the biggest and most significant show we have ever staged, and ticket sales are indicative of the fervour and excitement to see the Rolling Stones kick off their 14 On Fire tour in Abu Dhabi,’ said Flash CEO John Lickrish.
Responsible for more iconic rock songs than perhaps any band but The Beatles, and having provided an equally seismic influence on popular culture, creating the template for the very idea of a rock n’ roll band that so many have followed since, we can’t think of a band more worthy of splashing the cash for.
The Fire Pit and Golden Circle are exclusive standing areas towards the front of the sage, with dedicated entrances, toilets and bars.
Remaining tickets are on sale from www.ticketmaster.ae and all Virgin Megastore outlets across the UAE.
