Rolling Stones Play Secret Show At World Famous Echo Park Venue, The Echo

 

The Rolling Stones announced Saturday afternoon that the world famous band was going to play a secret show at The Echo in Echo Park just outside of Downtown Los Angeles. The Stones are using today’s show as a warm up for this weeks show at the Staples Center.

Tickets were sold at an off site location away from The Echo at the El Rey Theater in the Mid-Wilshire district of Los Angeles for the chance to try and get tickets for the show. Special tokens were given out and tickets sold for only $20 for people who got called to get the special once in  a lifetime shot to see the Stones at such a small venue.

“I waited an hour to get tickets,” said Elisabeth Ring from the Miracle Mile of Los Angeles. She added, “It is the most incredible thing that has every happened to me. Someone offered me $800 on the street but I wouldn’t take it.”

At The Echo a line of about 60 people stood in the line for the hope that they would release seats for the show this evening. Chuck Flores from San Fernando and Michael Lim from California stood in line to try and get a chance to purchase a once in a lifetime ticket.

Flores said, “The greatest rock n’ roll band in history and to play at a venue like this and not having the opportunity to not buy tickets initially, honestly I heard it late.” Bands are playing in smaller venue’s more often as they did in the past getting in touch with their fans and Flores added, “I would say that it is reverting back to getting closer with their fans instead of the concert at the Staples Center later this week to thousands, but to get this close to your fans is amazing. Providing them this opportunity, tickets only $20 each, you can’t go wrong with that.”

Lim said  “I have been waiting my whole life this is my favorite band to see them not in a giant arena.” This will be a memorable night for the many who got tickets and hopefully had the lucky chance to get in. The Rolling Stones will play the Staples Center on May 3 and 20. They will also be playing in Anaheim the Honda Center on May 15 and 18.
