Saew them in 1978 in Philadelphia where the fans tore up the stage when they failed to do an encore and then I saw them in 1980 I thikn it was when Mick had that huge cherrypicker on stage that he rode around in. That was the last time for me....

Thanks for the info. I remember thinking I was a fool for paying $100 to see them in '01 (I think). I did not think that afterward.

I've seen the last two tours...if you're a Stones fan and can get/afford tix, I recommend you go. The shows have been excellent.

Well, I love the Rolling Stones and have seen them a few times over the years starting back in early 70's with Mick Taylor and if I have an opportunity to catch them again I will (although I will definitely pass if it looks like a decent ticket will cost over 100). Have to admit I'm sort of surprised to hear they are touring.

HAVE TO DISAGREE HAVING SEEN BOTH TOURS. 5-6 YEARS AGO THEY WERE GOOD. MY SON HAS STILL NEVER RECOVERED FROM SEEING CHERYL CROW SING HONKY TONK WOMAN IN THAT AMERICAN FLAG BIKINI TOP. TWO YEARS AGO THEY WERE PEDESTRIAN. NOT WORTH THE ALMOST 200 PER TICKET. THEY WON'T GET MY MONEY THIS TIME AROUND

A few years ago a really good friend of mine, who could care less about music, was doing some consulting work for Coke in Atlanta and was given two front row tickets to the Stones by the Company for he and his wife. Seems I recall the tickets having a face value of somewhere between $200 and $300. I called him after the show and asked how he liked it, and he told me he didn't make it through one song...too loud, he said.

Too loud, I asked? Yup, too loud, he said. Only one song, I asked? Yup, only one song, he said.

I guess that's why they make vanilla and chocolate ice cream.

The last time I saw the Stones was Jan. 2003 at the Garden in Boston, on the Forty
Licks tour. They were phenomenal.

"Saw them in 1978 in Philadelphia where the fans tore up the stage when they failed to do an encore"
___________________________________________

Hard to believe that Philadelphia fans would act in such a way...

I see them every time they come around and I have to say that last tour's show was a audio train wreck. But whevever Ronnie and Keith really started hacking it up, I just focused on Mick running around and that really fired me up to see him still getting down. A mixed bag for sure. If I go again, it will be more for the visuals then the audio. Maybe I should play Exile on Main St. on my Ipod during the show.

saw them the last 2 tours - the tour opener at Boston and then at Fenway. Great shows, I couldn't believe after all these years I was actually seeing them.
but - cheapest seats face was $100.
glad I got to see them - I think I'll spend my c-note on something else this time around.
