The Stones played at the Double Door in the 90s, (a 400 person venue) before the common use of the internet, and they announced it on the radio. If you were close to the venue, then that was the luck. They put a wristband on you that they put your name on after you gave them ID. The next day when you returned, your unmolested wristband and ID were required to get in.

If it could be a spontaneous announcement by the Stones before the real internet age, then I think it can be done nowadays.

Oh well... I am expecting zero tickets.
