“You can’t always get what you want,” the Rolling Stones have counseled us for years, but they’ve never said you can’t get what you need, either.
Some Stones fans who bought tickets for the legendary rockers’ roll in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena last Thursday reportedly couldn’t get in with their StubHub tickets.
The No Filter Tour concert was scheduled for an earlier Pasadena stop this year, but had to be postponed as Mick Jagger underwent heart surgery. Last Thursday, a handful of fans who bought tickets on StubHub were turned away, said a report on Ticket News.
More than 40 calls from frustrated customers were received by StubHub, an NBC report said.
The ticket site said it will investigate what happened. In the meantime, ticket holders are advised to get in touch as soon as possible to get a refund.
Thursday’s sold-out show drew a range of concert-goers, from the very young to the more mature. Jagger, now 75, put on his famous physical moves and impressed the crowd even after the surgery in April.
The band also sold thousands of T-shirts and merchandise. Many of the fans who came had made a long weekend out of the show, opting to stay at local hotels and with friends in Pasadena.
After a Monday night concert in Glendale, Arizona, the Rolling Stones wraps up the tour in Miami this weekend.Openers for their tour include blues musician Gary Clark Jr. and indie-rock group The Wombats. Colombian rocker Juanes will open the Miami show on Saturday.
