The Stones are at it again, and this time they're bringing their legendary riffs to Glendale. That's right, The Rolling Stones, rock 'n' roll's indefatigable icons, have State Farm Stadium locked in for a May 7 gig, part of their critically acclaimed Stones Tour ’24. The show marks their first return to the Phoenix area since 2019, rolling out the red carpet for classics and tracks from their new album, "Hackney Diamonds." Mexican sensation Carin León is slated to warm up the crowd, securing the night's status as a must-see event.

Getting your hands on tickets might feel like finding a golden ticket, and with good reason. An eclectic mix of die-hard fans and the just plain curious are all scrambling for a seat. According to Phoenix New Times, as of this Monday morning, tickets are still up for grabs on SeatGeek ranging from $63 for a spot where the air's thinner to a jaw-dropping $1,153 to jostle elbows with the band's entourage. The price spectrum varies wildly, ensuring that there's a slice of the pie for nearly every budget.

Meanwhile, over at Ticketmaster, you've got a sea of resale options to navigate. The entry-level asks here to start at $72 for the budget-conscious fan hanging in the rafters, scaling up to a lofty $1,165 for those wanting to experience Mick Jagger's age-defying strut from up close. A ticket is more than just a piece of paper, though – remember, the litany of taxes and fees always manages to bloat the bottom line.

For fans who've been waiting to see The Rolling Stones since they last strutted through Arizona, "Hackney Diamonds" and the band's unfading hits promise an electrifying night under Glendale’s starlit sky. And come high water or resale gouging, the Phoenix faithful will be there, doing whatever it takes to ensure they're part of rock history. As reported by ABC 15, tickets have been on sale since December 1, but with the clock ticking down to the wire, securing those seats remains a game of digital cat and mouse—welcome to the jungle, indeed.
