@AKBfan 'Yes, this is business not really music'. So, your moniker is ironic?

Looks like the lunch line at the old folks home down the street.

Gettting older is a natural part of life and nothing to be ashamed of. More power to the Rolling Stones to keep on rocking!

They're not just a rock&roll band, they're a business corporation that's grossed billions of dollars.

The eighth wonder of the world: how modern medicine is keeping Keith Richards alive!

Good to see Mick Taylor back as a guest for the shows. The best period for the Stones was when he was in the band. I think I'll hang on to the cash and just listen to Exile on Main Street on my ipod.

"Gettting older is a natural part of life and nothing to be ashamed of."

But it's not for sissies.

You forgot to mention the 80,000 yen (S) tickets, which sold out first! ;)

Only the Stones could get away with charging those sorts of prices lol

I guess they couldn't let Paul McCartney get away with a concert tour of Japan. Still a bit of that Stones - Beatles rivalry!

It's a global tour. Not sure about McCartney but the Stones are going across Asia and then Australia and New Zealand.

Good on em. The older you get and the more people you know who die, the more it will mean something to see people like them still out there performing.

But the ticket prices a too high so maybe I'll wait till their 2024 tour.

Looks like the lunch line at the old folks home down the street. Except for the private jet.

Hmm, the Rolling Bones are back in Japan.

Tickets are way too pricey, rather watch Crazy Ken Band.

My favorite is Jumpin' Jack Flash. Eighty thousand yen for the Gold Circle? Any festival seating?

'Dylan is also coming to town?' Yes. Got my ticket for Tokyo. A bit steep at ¥13,000.

It's only rock and roll but I like it.

Soon they'll be rockin' with their adult diapers on, if not already.

It seems that Stones would make a lot of money as there are still so many obasan and ojisan who are great fans of them.

Jimi I leave you to draw your own conclusions. At least AKB look good......

Yes, this is business not really music. Old codgers who i wouldn't want to see nut still attract a huge following.
