Review by Torben Karlsh�j

Just before the Stones landed in Copenhagen heavy rain stopped. 47000 fans got a great great show in 20 degrees. Everything worked well out. Keith and Mich were in splendid form - as they pushed the show to a higher level - with old tunes like: Sympathy for the Devil, Honky Tonk Women and Jumping Jack Flash as highlights together with new tunes as Out of Control and Saint of me.

It took some time to get Ron Wood started - but after a few tunes, he did some great guitarwork, especially in Miss You. It was a good idea with the bridge to the island in the middle of the field, which gave the audience a chance to see the band. It was the Stones third show in the decade - now we look forward to see the old guys in the next century - sure they can still give a good show in year 2000 !!

Review by Dirk Stoermann, Hamburg, Germany

I'am back to Hamburg now and after the three giant shows in Barcelona, Paris and Copenhagen a bit exhausted. In Denmarks capital I met Roland from the UNDERCOVER-list the first time ever and some other scandinavian guys. After the GlimmerMeeting at a pretty good pub 'Cafe Bopa' (near the Parken stadium) we went to the venue. Parken was sold out and fortunately I've got a field-ticket from a danish guy. Thanks for translation, Roland!

The weather in Copenhagen was very bad. Rainy and cold. During the show the rain stops and we had 2 1/2 hours great Stones. 'She's a Rainbow', the first surprise, was fantastic. Not a crowd-pleaser like Paint it, Black (the Barcelona and Paris highlight!) but great 60's stuff as well. Ronnies sitar-job a funny thing.

I was worried about a bit boring audience. Can't believe that these enthusiastic danish soccer-fans can be so tired. Maybe no soccer-fan is simultaneously a Stones-fan... Perhaps the cold weather was the reason for that strange (Stones-fan)-behaviour. Nevertheless we had a great 3-song-center-stage-time with a perfect 'You got me Rocking' and I shot a lot of photos. Keith and Ronnie were in a funny mood and kidding sometimes. The Greatest-Hits-section was terrific - each song alike the after show fireworks!

We met again after the show and the northern guys made their plans for the next shows in Gothenburg, Oslo,Tallinn etc. My next event will be in Prague - my first small venue show. Cant' wait!!
