The Rolling Stones  will be making  an unexpected stop in Echo Park as their concert tour arrives in Los Angeles. The band will be performing at a last-minute show tonight at the EchoPlex.  The $20 tickets for the show went on sale at  1 p.m. today at the El Rey Theater but hundreds of fans lined up hours earlier, reports LAist.  Will Mick stop off at Burrito King or the Brite Spot before the show? Stay tuned.

Security guards await arrival of fans.

Ticket holders to tonight’s Rolling Stone show display their orange wrist bands as they lined up outside the club entrance on Sunset Boulevard.  Jazmine said she waited only 10 minutes before buying her ticket. “I was lucky.”

  1. Why weren’t tickets sold locally here in EP at the Echo?

    • Because you are not as special as you thought, Muholland Dr. money is far more superior than yours. Welcome home!

    • There is no box office.

      • The Echo actually does have a small box office window on Sunset, but I doubt it’s equipped to handle a crowd like the one for this show.

        • Well yes, they’ve always had the concession stand but historically most (local)pre-sales are usually handled by Origami.

    • It’s almost like they want to cause traffic and parking problems!

    • Your contempt without investigation is like a child.

      Now that you know where they were purchased your next question will be “welllll why didn’t they offer them to echo fart stinkoids first?” Then, tomorrow morning when the sunrises on the great flag of our country you may realize, although unlikely, that it did not rise on you.

      Anyway…I’m posting this from inside the venue.

  2. Mick will of course be dining at TAIX; a long time favorite with SENIORS in the area. Ziiing!

  3. C’mon, this is so cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Damn, Just damn damn damn

  5. There was a lottery for the tickets, and then you could to buy them IF your number came up. Believe KTLA covered the story.
