As a part of the general onsale, a limited number of tickets will be sold at $29.50 plus service charges. All Lucky Dip tickets will be sold as a pair. The ticket locations will be throughout the venue, including Side View Upper Level, and Field. You and your guest will find out your seat locations when you pick them up the night of the show.
We will be using strict anti-scalper measures to ensure that these tickets go to Stones fans and don’t end up on the resale market with wildly inflated prices. We appreciate your attention to the following, so that you have the best experience possible:
· You must pick up your tickets in person, along with your guest. Once you have the tickets in hand, you will be escorted into the venue. There will not be an opportunity to leave with your tickets before going into the show.
· Picture ID, your confirmation number, and the credit card used to make the purchase are required for pick-up. Without these things, you will not be able to pick up your tickets.
· If we suspect any reselling or transfer of these tickets they will be immediately voided and you will not be entitled to any refund.
A couple days ago, a little bird told me that The Rolling Stones may be playing the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood on Wednesday, May 20th. After confirmation with a couple industry friends, and rumors about them rehearsing in a local North Hollywood studio, it looks like the Stones are pulling another once-in-a-life-time surprise in Los Angeles. Actually, after their intimate Echoplex gig in 2013, this will be a twice-in-a-lifetime performance.
The Rolling Stones are rumored to headline the Fonda Theatre on Wednesday, May 20th. The performance will be a warm-up show in preparation for their 15-stop Zip Code Tour. All info has not been officially confirmed by The Rolling Stones. We don’t even know if tickets will be sold or if it’s invite-only. We can only hope it’s a $20 lottery like at their 2013 Echoplex show.
Additionally, the original performance that was supposed to happen on May 20th at the Fonda was a concert with Shakey Graves. However, on May 13 we received a press release that read: “Due to logistics at Fonda Theatre, The Shakey Graves show on 5/20 has been moved to Belasco Theater.” The Rolling Stones are definitely a big enough reason to move and existing nearly sold-out show.
The Rolling Stones will host a Twitter Q&A this Monday, May 18th at 10am PST. Feel free to join in on the action and ask them any questions (like if they’re playing the Fonda!). #AskTheStones

P.S. I’m posting this from my iPhone while tipsy at a ladies-only wine party with like 30 girls, after receiving two texts from friends inquiring about the Stones show. The jig is up. Time to share. Not my sources below, but just general in-the-know Tweets.
