"The problem with GnR is that they suck. The songs suck. Even when they were in their prime they sucked. Remnants of an era of misogynistic sunset strip garbage. Bros who dressed like girls but still acted like high school jocks.
Hardly conclusive evidence that the Stones would play.. also, not sure how open the Riverbend folks are, but taking pictures of contracts and sharing them with the internet seems like a bad idea. Thanks though, I've never seen a festival contract before.

What's the biggest act ever at Riverbend? I'm sure they don't have 2 mil for The Rolling Stones and wouldn't even consider them. I don't even think they could handle the logistics around booking a band like that.
Maybe they offered something to The Rolling Stones to perform in some kind of Arena, but I'm sure not for Riverbend Festival.

You're crazy thinking Rolling Stones would be booked under 1 million dollar. They got payed over 25 million for the first 4 concerts they played. That's about 6 million per concert. The tickets were really expensive to still make a profit of the concerts.
"Discussing the ticket prices, Scott Rowley, Editor In Chief of Classic Rock, who will host the Classic Rock Roll of Honour next month, said: "The thing is that people will pay it. The Stones don't tour that often so it's still a special event, there's the suggestion that this really could be the last time, plus you know you're going to enjoy it. People pay that much money for football games that end 0-0." "
