NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

LP Field will be packed with Rolling Stones fans in a few hours as Mick Jagger and the crew will be rocking Music City.

Tickets are still available for Wednesday's concert, but it won't be cheap.

Single seats on the lowest level of the bowl are priced from $188 to $368.

In Level 2, there were a few pairs of singles seats at $188.30. In the end zone corner of the upper deck, tickets were still available for $110.60.

In late 2014, the Stones played four shows in Australia to 92,000 people and took in $23 million. In 2013, three shows in Chicago during their 50th anniversary tour raked in $16 million.

It's now been 52 years since Mick, Keith and Charlie popped up on American radar screens, part of the British invasion. They were scruffy and raw compared to the spit and polished Fab Four – The Beatles.

The generation after the Stones is represented on Wednesday when Brad Paisley gets to open the show.

Paisley joined the Stones on stage in 2013 and said it was like taking a warm bath in your favorite soup.

Wednesday's show is at least the Stones' fourth visit in Nashville.

The Rolling Stones played twice at Municipal Auditorium, selling it out in seven hours in 1972.

In 1997, the Stones brought their show to Vanderbilt Stadium.

The Stones recorded Brown Sugar in nearby Muscle Shoals, AL. Keith Richards recorded with George Jones at Bradley's barn studio a few years ago.

The music of Johnny Cash, Jones and Gram Parsons were huge influences on the Stones, who loved Elvis Presley, Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana.

Mick Jagger was also spotted around town during the group's visit. The Stones attended a benefit Tuesday night at Mercy Lounge and Jagger tweeted pictures Wednesday outside The Parthenon at Centennial Park.
