Why yes — you can buy a $600,000 ticket to see the Rolling Stones in New Jersey

As you may have heard, The Rolling Stones — a popular music combo from England — are playing two dates in December at The Prudential Center in New Jersey. Tickets went on sale today at noon.

We talked to one EVG reader who was shut out of the sales.

But! Don't fret! There are plenty of tickets available on StubHub...


...where you can pay $600,000 for one General Admission seat.

Or, you could buy this cute little one-bedroom co-op on East Fifth Street with a private garden for $589,000...


Tough call?

Are the Hell's Angels going to be doing the security there?

@ Marty. Yes but don't fuck with the bench!

I'd like to meet the person who buys that ticket...and then have them buy me that apartment.

What kind of moron pays $600,000 to see the Rolling Stones!? Heck, I'm content to sit with the yokels in Floor B Row 7 for only $19,512.00.

If I wanted to see a bunch of 70 year olds, I'll go to a nursing home. It's free.

@Makeout: Ha ha ha! No worries about me and that bench, I'm far, far away from it these days!

I may have finally lived in this city too long because that co-op seems almost reasonably priced.

There's two seats for Saturday's hit for $750,000. EACH. I'm not fucking kidding.

I bid 10 clams for that lobster! said...

It could be a shill bidder who's bidding up the price so that other tickets held by the same seller become relatively "more valuable" at a lower price that he's able to sell them for.

Just sayin' .. auctions aren't always so straightforward (or honest) you know.

Maybe the rumor of Brian Jones rejoining the band is driving the prices up. I will wait for them to play the "old' Forest Hills Stadium again, where tickets are only $5.00. At least that's what they cost when the Stones played there in 1966.
