    Oh Yeah, nice show. So good to see our men back on stage and still doing this for us (and theyre bank account). I really enjoyed what i have seen and heard from videos. Lovely to see Keith in such good shape, the worst was one of the highlights for me. Neighbors was a….was a ok surprise but i think they should given us child of the moon, she said yeah, dance little sister, or one of the side B metamorphosis gems and so on, but hey, at least we got something. Booze and pills and powders for sure

    For the record: the Stones are playing a fucking great show on this tour. While the actual visibility of the band seems drastically reduced, every bit you do see of them is truly inspiring. Everyone is doing the best they possibly could. Which again begs the question why a guy like Karl Denson is on the payroll. Makes the absence of Bobby Keys all the more poignant, maybe that’s a reason there

    It just dawned on me that we’re actually looking at the 50th anniversary of the greatest piece of music ever to grace the airwaves and our minds and hearts. NME Poll Winners of ’68 still live:

    To whomever those souls were sold, that price must have been right… Mr Watts just went onstage and made his point before a single note was even played.

    Charlie Watts is a hero. Get ready for “glory glory man united” and “City is a cunt”, not to forget “all the way down”

    Firstly, thank you rolling stones, I saw them at old Trafford yesterday- they were amazing, incredible and mind blowing. Just a thought, I think 34 not 74!!!!! As for highlights there were too many- it was great cos I was right at the front. I loved every song even mis you and ycagwyw.

    With the right mindset Miss You is still a great live performance. Whatever they blab, the band is not tired of any of their songs except the ones they don’t play. When Darryl gets a moment in the spotlight, I guess it’s up to him what he presents so I’m very okay with that. Great for you Nick, I am sort of envious because I did want to check the tour on their home turf but i haven’t got the dough. I did see them in London in 2013 and remember I wasn’t thrilled at all with all the stuff I did not see from the second row. Didn’t see Mr Watts once though he staggered across the stage at one point. Every sightline was crammed at all times with ventilators teleprompters monitors and the odd 3D-camera equipment. Later I realized that they built such a tall stage on purpose as to give them a great view of the evening sun crowd that came for their 50th. From the band’s perspective it must have looked wonderful as you see it in the film. I believe it’s a done deal that I’m going to catch them in Stuttgart or any of the remaining dates, as creatures of faith just won’t quit praising the lord

    One of the reports on iorr said that the audience response was no very excited at Manchester. I must have been excited enough for everyone. My favourite is still gimme shelter and you could hear every word of sasha Allen’s performance. I though all the band were great keith in good voice – and Chuck leavell great on honky tonk women. Ronnie got the biggest cheer- and a thought about Charlie- how does he get such an amazing sound from those drums. You realise the kit is small when you see the drums for Richard Ashcroft s band!! Oh and mick was unbelievable using the stage- amazing!

    Not going to another show no. But it was my Christmas day going to Manchester. I was like a kid-so excited. So for a bit of fun I thought I’ll see how much a meet and greet would be- answer 25000 us dollars lol needless to say I won’t be doing that.

    You can have a five second meet and greet for free by setting up camp at their hotel. This is from 14 on Fire Tour in Stockholm

    after the mistake of reading into iorr just now, most of them seem to be at a point of no return. They wanna stick with it all the way through but they’re just longing for it to end any day now. This is not the sort of fan the Stones need or deserve.

    the stuff you read: “Its all down to marketing and ticket selling strategy…which it always was but now…geez….couldn’t even keep 2 and a half minute PLAY WITH FIRE in the set last year…why not?..show ran too long!?…nope . Audience had blank stares…Jagger said no way….yeesh”

    Never mind all the cheech and geez and yeesh, this is so off base it’s remarkable in itself. It is clear when the opening night is 22 numbers and one of them is Play With Fire that this is a one-off. Never played since ’89 and never will again. The way it was played made it perfectly clear it might as well have been played all the time. But it wasn’t because thats Micks way to set markers in history by now. What we have here is a sorry geezer biting his own ass because he missed what will not be repeated, ever. I was there btw

    it’s just getting better

    “by doing that he reduces The Rolling Stones to a sixties revival act. With no relevance to the contemporary scene.”

    by all means, please point out to me where this “contemporary scene” is and how very relevant it is to the Stones in order to sell their overpriced tickets. Is it their contemporary friend of literary excellence who rants at his audience so they won’t recognize the songs? Is it the overwhelming freshness and relevance of Roger Waters The Wall Show without The Wall? Is it Angus Young without /DC? Is it Kanyes latest magnum opus? Is it Kims magnificent buttocks? Is it Michael Jacksons hologram? Is it the crowd at U2 shows? You accuse them of pandering, yet all you really want is them pandering to you. you had the 2014 summer tour, they played three major festivals and were as close to the “scene” as you and i can get. please shut yer trap and let them do their thang
