RE “ROLLING Stones to play TD Garden June 12” (Names, April 4):
The first time I saw the Rolling Stones, in 1975, I was a mere 15 years old. I took the train to North Station and got tickets from a scalper for $15, double the face value.
Since then, I have seen the Stones play every single tour in the Boston area, sometimes paying $250 for a single seat. To me, it was worth it: my favorite band, my favorite songs, the best times of my life.
But, how am I going to afford tickets for the shows on the latest Stones tour? The prices are up to $600 for a single seat, and that’s before scalpers get a hold of them. It makes me wonder. . . is this the Retirement Savings Tour for the Stones?
