Australia, get ready to rock! 2014 will see some of the biggest concerts in history hit our shores.
The Rolling Stones
The most eagerly-anticipated event of 2014, iconic rock legends The Rolling Stones are returning Down Under for what’s likely to be their last-ever performance in Australia. After all, at 70 years old, Mick Jagger’s no longer a spring chicken. But despite his years, he still knows how to wow a crowd. VIP packages are available at most venues from $575. General admission prices start at around $99.

Thirty Seconds To Mars
Actor-turned-singer Jared Leto, the frontman for Thirty Seconds To Mars, will be unleashed on Australia for high-octane performances in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.

Ticket prices for general admission are $80 and there are VIP upgrades you can purchase through Adventures in Wonderland, which include meet-and-greets and photos with the band. Concert-goers who had tickets for the cancelled August concerts will be able to use them, but everyone else will have to be quick as tickets will be scarce.
