Default A rolling stone gathers plenty of moss

Fire Pit 4000 dhs to 3000 dhs,

Golden Cirlce 2500 - 1995

General Admission, cheapest is 495 dhs

You pay an extra 300 dhs on each tier to get there an hour earlier.

A snip!

$1000 for the closest spot

I could understand if it was the last ever Stones concert or if it was a single reunion concert by a legenday band, like the 2007 Led Zepplin O2 concert...

'Wouldn't pay a 10th of that' is 100% fully accurate....' as for the rest - geriatric.....

Jagger 1943
Richards 1943
Wood 1947
Watts 1941

Either way, each to there own.
