If I can quote the great Kenny Dalglish: Mibees Ayes, Mibees Naws.

It's a canny Scots thing but covers all eventualities.

>grinning smiley<

King Kenny was a great fitba' player. Scotland need more his kinda class to enter big events. But that was OT. Now, back in business. Wish Keef and Ronnie put themselves back in condition and start making smaller venue tours without back-up vocalists. That's the thing I'd like to see (and of course a tour with MT&BW would be an icing on the cake)...

I couldn't believe Jay Z is reaching 40 ,he looks so young !
Anyhow,I always have fun watching these broadcasts .That's why I like most of the American people ,they don't take themselves seriously compared to "us ".winking smiley

If it was the last show then these are the last few seconds of them on stage ever. But I don't believe it will be. Photo by SD.

Hello,

I went to the Tuesday and Thursday shows (with Tuesday edgeing it slightly...only slightly mind) and did write at the time that if they were the last Stones shows that I saw then I couldn't have asked for much more:I enjoyed those gigs enormously,warts and all.

Mind you,it helped having a decent pre-gig boozer to meet-up at too!

Cheers,

Si.

As they have decided against a tour this year, I have to admit, I really do feel we have reached the end of The Rolling Stones as a touring act. Age and health are against them and by the time 2012 comes around, who knows? Would Mick's voice still hold up? Keith's arthritis will only worse - and Ronnie? Will he still be alive, by then?

I have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the shows I have been privileged enough to attend. To witness my heroes in action has been such an unimaginative thrill. I would also like to add that I have enjoyed the company of many fine posters on these here boards and I am going to miss those pre-concert gatherings tremendously.

Don't do that Al. Don't say goodbye yet. If you lose faith that they'll be back, they might never. Somebody once said "Lose your dreams, and you will lose your mind". Don't do it man. They WILL be back.

I agree completely with that feeling.
I doubt the Stones have any idea what they'll be doing in a year or two.

haha! its pretty funny
As soon as a rumour starts, everyone really hopes it to be true, even so much that they "know" its true.

They WILL go touring again. If they dont have any new ideas of a concept for anything new, they dont come out with any official news. We just got to wait untill they have finnished everything and just be patient.

They'll need to do a serious price restructuring if theyre going to manage a residency anywhere. They did 3 shows at the 02 last time and it was an easy ticket.

By contrast, Prince - who has a fraction of the Stones drawing power - managed to sell pretty close to all of his tickets for 21 nights.

The Stones wont be capable of doing multi-night runs anywhere - even MSG - unless they lower their prices. If they play multiple nights in one city now, they have to stagger the shows several months apart as they did on the last tour.

Residencies are the way to go though in the long-term I think. They need to get it right though.

At the time I thought that the Stones concert at the O2 might be the Stones' last concert. Just like when the Beatles played on the roof in London, no one knew at the time that it would be their last show together.

I had the same "final" feeling after the Sunday show. To me, the Thursday show actually blew the 2 other shows away but there were some sentimental moments on the Sunday with so many family members there, Bill Wyman there, and the kids and grand kids doing back-up vocals. I think they were making it thefinal bow even if they may have not have known for sure.

I'm pretty sure that we'll see and hear more from Mick in the future....for ego reasons.
Concerning the band, it appears to me that O2 was their last show ever. It's pretty clear to see that Keith and Ronnie can't do any shows in their entirely.

Mick said once during their last shows, that they wouldn't announce their 'last tour' - so it's simply over when it's over.

I was at the first two shows. IMO the 02 shows were it. The last.
No great deal. But I hope it wasn´t.

I hope that the last O2 show wont be the last one ever, but when i was there the last night, i was thinking that it might be so. I´m very happy that i was there then and had great tickets on the floor (12th row).

I hope the 02 shows were the last. I saw the first and third shows. They can't have improved since and they should leave it there.

His pathetic behavior and unwillingness to correct it merely cements my opinion. I realize a lot of folks here will be unhappy with my comments - so be it.
are we talking about his guitar skills or something else .imho who are we to judge him on his personal life ?

I´m born 30 years to late, i´m 29 and i have seen 12 shows, i don´t know what to do when they are gone? I wish i could have been there in the 70s and 80s and it´s unbelivable when a lot of people here a talking about shows they have been to such as MSG 72, Hampton 81, Atlantic City 89 and so on, shows that are so great! For me it seems unreal that many people here was attending these famous shows. You guys can be very lucky! But maybe i´m the one who is lucky in 30 years time, when i can say that i was attending the last three shows they ever did, if that´s how it´s going to be?

Yes I agree. Of the three O2 shows, I think most people that saw all three, as indeed I did, would agree that the second one on the Thursday was truly outstanding. It stood out as the best of the three.

If it´s so - I have seen their last three shows ever, together with two
great friends. The second one was the best, one of my best ever (out of 47).

The thing really is...what am I gonna do without them? Hard to imagine a world
without them making music/touring.

Same here!!, But I wont stop hoping!, If chuck berry can make it to 84 this year, It bet my balls that stones could make it to at least 70 if they tried and want to wich I hope. It would fit perfectly to to one last tour and let all fans enjoy them one last time!!

I thought the 2nd was the best too. The last had so much expectation that they would dip into the archives and play sme real rarities but it was a pretty average set list.

i was at the last concert at the 02 in 2007.

felt the body language between the band suggested they had come to an end, hope im wrong and anyway if they knew that was the last gig surely they would have told us by now.

if it turns out that it was the end then what a way to go, the concert was great and it was a joy to hear a couple of songs i thought i would never hear live "she was hot" and "cant you hear me knocking".
