Oh one question about Mick: Did he wear the same black shirt like last year or maybe a T-shirt again like on all tours since 1994?

What could i add to what just said JJF59. I totally agree with every word of it.

I don't explain more about the selection and the entrance. Just want to say that was my lucky day, sad for the friends who coudn't make it.

That was the second time experience i had with a stones rehearsal, because i was there also the first time. Of course this time was even more intense because it was clear that was a warm up gig. The bracelet i'm wearing today means they wanted it like that.

We were waiting next to the rehearsal studio with a direct door communicating to it. I remember the bass sounding in that room and suddenly a guy came from that door which could let us hear for a second the direct sound from the studio! what a feeling ! loud , clear!!

they made us doing a queue by the number we had on our hands, we waited couple of minutes like that! doing pictures, smiling to each others doing hugs!

Then the go start! I was number four! walked to the corridor, looked to the sign "stage" winking smiley i knew the way already!! shake hand with Tim smiling then climbed the stares!

This is the first time ( not counting the last one) u as a fan, enter the place for the show and the stones are already there! hearing doom and gloom !
Ronnie saw it directly, mick also, keith was really concentrated and saw us only one minute or two after that! When he did he just smiled at us and began to be the keith on stage winking smiley ! the crowd downstair was amused by the situation, looking at us enjoying every note of music!

The sound was amazing! Direct from the amps. my god i love those guys!

Doom and gloom perfect!

Keith with a nice telecaster i have never seen before played with Ronnie the start of she's so cold. that was a high class number all the way! Jagger beeing Jagger, starting the moves and dancing in the post stamp stage!!

Then Silver train! what could i say! History! Taylor who was waiting on the sofa before that did join the gig !! for the records keith had a little trouble on one of the breaks but as it was a real warm up show, they did continue it winking smiley ! Awesome!!!

Then midnight rambler!! Keith and Ronnie were starting the little notes at the beginning , Taylor asked them to wait a bit because his guitar was not ready yet, Pierre was still tunning it winking smiley! As soon as he had it on the shoulders keith started the riff! Charlie kikking !!! I had tears in my eyes since the beginning, but this moment was so strong! Mick at the harmo!! always a dream. Taylor and Mick played alot together on this number. Mick Dancing came down the stage and came right under the mezzanine dancing between the sofas smiling at us and clapping in his hands. !! the stones in youre living room!! that's what i though winking smiley !

Miss you, Mick with his guitar, Keith playing loud little riffs i always loved Ronnie since the beginning of the show is doing a master piece of work! he is so tight and precise! I say it here i could have say it earlier or later. I just had to say it.
Mick looking during the song at his harmo, calling Pierre for having it. i don't remember i he ever played on it. He made us sing, played with us, amused by the situation, same as the crowd!

"And now keith is gonna sing for you" said Mick!

He came out the stage and waited somewhere else.

We are really on a warm up show!!

KEIIIIIIIIIIIITH What a feeling to shout this and see keith turning back smiling at you! I still can't believe it.

Sleeping away! with taylor!
First i love the song! keith was singing and playing well! Taylor had some trouble findind the keys and after couple of wrong notes he got it! awesome moment for the break when the three of them were close to each others, crossing guitar lines. i was levitating at this moment!

BTMR
Ronnie was kicking on this one really! Keith as well, but more concentrated on his singing. Keith must have been in the sun before the rehearsals because he is really brown winking smiley !

Paint it black.... Keith perfect on the intro! Charlie starting the engine! Ronnie with his citar guitar. Mick dancing and moving like crasy. They pushed his mike on the mix which was better because before he was a little behind.
I think they started some laudspeakers on the mezzanine to make us hear him better because before we had just the sound coming from the one next to his mike. Perfect number. Rocking. !!

HTW as said a little slow! but so what! so solo of keith was perfect! and the sound ! THE SOUND of his telecaster! incredible.

Then Mick asked us not to move to much on the mezzanine because they were a little worried.

Tumbling dice. A Highway like usual but a little thing on the break winking smiley I love the Stones also for that! it's like they are playing the songs for the first time every time. they can still do little mistakes we love on those they played for ever winking smiley!

Last number said mick, thanking us for waiting in the cold and rain during all those days! We thanks them all in return!

Charlie with his headphones, then the loop from sympathy started. Mick gave us a wonderfull time dancing moving, keith a wonderfull solo!

The show is over! applause! message to each one of them! then we came down the stairs again winking smiley leaving the place, knowing we had be given a wonderfull gift from the sweetest and the biggest rock and roll band of planet earth!

I hope some others from the lucky 27 will do the same as i did winking smiley i hope there will be some footage in the dvd winking smiley i guess it's looking good. then you will understand better the magic moment it was.

Thanks the rolling stones for that!
Happyparis.

Tumbling dice!

I did not make it for the rehearsals unfortunately. I have been in Paris for 3 weeks, arriving to Paris one week before they started rehearsals, but on Friday I was on the plane back home to Norway while they gave out numbers to the lucky 27. If I had stayed I would have been number 5 or so like I used to be every day.

But no regrets. I wanted to be back home for three small days before I go on the entire tour for nearly two months now. Back home to my wife and family. The toughest part of following the Stones as much as I do is missing the family.

I am so happy for all the good friends I met in Paris who made it into the rehersals performance, but I am also sad for those who spent every day with me there, but just came 5 minutes or so too late on the last day.

I have so many great memories from the rehearsals. Some are posted here in this thread, some are published in this new complete list of reherased songs:

The Paris Rehearsals Feb 2014 : [www.iorr.org]

I will make the rest of my comments in my countdown thread:

Countdown to The Rolling Stones 2014 Tour start : [www.iorr.org]

You must have an awesome wife because mine looks at me like I'm crazy to go to more than 1 show. In many ways I envy you so much.

My guess is, that this was an (if not the most) important part of the marriage-settlementgrinning smiley

Anyway, the story-length of the people who contributed the extraordinary experience shows how special these guys are!

ps: @happyparis... the song's called slipping away, not the thing you did at this occasionwinking smiley

congrats to all who had this great opportunity!!!

As big a fan as you are, I find hard to believe that you just took it in stride about missing the rehearsals. I would think that you would be pissed after all that time standing around at the rehearsal site in the rain only to leave Paris hours before the viewing. When exactly did you find out about the rehearsal viewing? Do you have any pictures from outside the place?
