    What is your personal favorite tour, of the ones you attended? Personally I really enjoyed everything about No Security. The only show I attended, Columbus, had very quiet sound (especially compared to the perfect and blazingly loud sound of the opener Johnny Lang) but the show was fantastic. I loved almost every bootleg from that tour.

    I gotta go with the Dirty Work Tour of ’85. Sparsely attended and rarely discussed but I think history will be kind to it. Winning ugly for sure but a win is a win

    Had It With You and Flight 505 as the encores was a stroke of genius.

    The only tour to date where Ronnie, Bill and Charlie were each afforded the chance to sing lead vocals on songs, giving Mick and Keith a chance to shoot up. Oh how I miss the glorious 80’s.

    My two (equally?) favourite tours were 1972 & 1975 in Toronto, Maple Leaf Gardens. That first night in 1972 forever changed my life. There they were, right in front of my face. And they were ragged, rough, wobbly, not respectable, not sanitised………perfectly what I wanted and needed. Wish those days had never ended!

    72 and 75? Was that in this lifetime?  Seems like it might have been one or two back.

    The only show I’ve ever attended was 2013 in Boston. It was in a small arena. They played Memory Motel that night. They had Bobby Keys and Mick Taylor onstage. And Midnight Rambler sounded just like it did on Hot Rocks.

    Licks…similar to Some Girls in that they had something to prove….the breadth of the shows, and the performances were stellar…tix for these shows were best ever.

    Ah yes, the fruit of the loom tour. And despite its unofficial sobriquet, it really wasn’t a brief tour.

    so wrong…

    Charlie was also shooting up…but yes, that was with Mick.  It was Ronnie Bill and Keith doing the vocals…at that point though Keith could still sing and play guitar at the same time.  Too Rude indeed!

    Actually, the Stones did tour Dirty Work in 1986 — one show only at the 100 Club in London, on February 23, and they only played one song off of the album, Harlem Shuffle… oh, and Charlie could only play the second half of the show, a snowstorm you understand… they had a drummer fill in for the first half, Simon Kirke… guess they knew Charlie was gonna be late, snowstorms being what they were in those days, you know,… I mean, couldn’t have your drummer held up smack in the middle of a snowstorm, so better have another drummer handy… like they did for the Dirty Work album….

     

    ….And don’t expect to be able to hear the Dirty Work tour concert tape, because only one member of the audience (Paul McCartney) was recording it.

    ’89 because you always remember your first, and probably ’02 for the small shows and the varied setlists.

    Honourable mention to seeing Mick Taylor for 2 1/2 songs in 2013.

    i am a vegas era concertgoer and my best live memories are midnight rambler oslo and roskilde with mick taylor. hm when i think about it taylor is my favorite stones guitarist 🙂 wish i could have seen the stones in the 60s and 70s and 81/82. right now its friday night and let it bleed and you got the silver loud on my amplifier and i have to say, lifes good. bring back taylor for fucks sake. A new blues album without taylor sounds strange to me

    Tough to say, I’m generally easy to please, so while I can find flaws in any performance, I keep coming back because I keep enjoying the shows. Hearing, and seeing CYHMK with Taylor was definitely a highlight in 2013….but I guess I would have 1972…..why? I really don’t know.

    I can't tell you the way I feel because the way I feel is oh so new to me.......or whatever

    I just checked and it’s true: in heaven the 72 Stones are playing in a continuous loop. In hell, it’s 50th anniversary and counting act playing with no alcohol or narcotics permitted, which is just plain mean, but that’s hell for you. It must be hell, indeed
