...arrived at the venue at 4pm...stood in line two hours and fifteen minutes to purchase official merchandise from the massive stall outside...shirts, jackets, program, two different Tokyo Dome posters...all of the merchandise on offer was top notch...still among the best in the business when it comes to merchandising...

...entered the venue at 6:30pm...blues music on the loudspeakers...the crowd roaring after the last couple of songs as 7pm neared...chugged a drink & a fist full of fries as we made our way to our seats (no time to eat on account of the merchandise line)...seated in the third row behind home plate...nearly perfect centered view of the entire stage...

...lights out at 7pm sharp...huge roar from the crowd..."ladies and gentlemen, please welcome The Rolling Stones!"...huge roar...Mick, the ultimate frontman in an eye-catching silver and black jacket..."Get Off Of My Cloud"...

...It's Only Rock'n'Roll...Tokyo is loosening up...Mick is hitting all the high notes...

...Tumbling Dice...excellent digital graphics on the backdrop of dice, etc...

...Wild Horses...Mick is holding Tokyo's heart in the palm of his hand

...Emotional Rescue...funky...fun...

...Doom and Gloom...a new song but no one leaves their seat...Charlie is hitting those drums hard tonight...

...Mick explains the song choice vote...many think it'll be Silver Train and a few exclaim it, but no it's Bitch...

...Honky Tonk Women...the digital graphics for this one are phenomenal and very entertaining...I won't go into detail as I don't wish to be a spoiler...

...Slipping Away...Keith accompanied by Mick Taylor...slipping away but still with us today...

...Before They Make Me Run...Tokyo loves Keith...

...Midnight Rambler (with Mick Taylor)...the highlight of the show for me...Mick Jagger on harmonica with his face no more than an inch away from Mick Taylor's, who performs flawlessly with an intensity in his eyes I'll never forget...

...Miss You...Mick at his campy best...

...Paint It Black...the drummer thinks he's dynamite, and he is

...Gimme Shelter...Mick & Lisa rocking the house on the B-stage

...Start Me Up...another uptempo, high energy rendition...

...Brown Sugar...Tokyo is into it..."Whooh!"

...Jumpin' Jack Flash...Keith nails the opening notes and they reverberate around the Tokyo Dome...

...Sympathy for the Devil...everyone is bathed in red light...the horizon is a wall of fire...Mick in a red and black overcoat, which he slides out of and clutches as he sings...smoke effects...

...You Can't Always Get What You Want (with 'The Senzoku Freshman Singers')...
the crowd roars their approval...palpable sense of national pride in the choir

...(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (with Mick Taylor)...Mick wrenches every last bit of energy from the old warhorse...

Other notes: Ronnie Wood is on fire! Tonight was the best I've ever heard him play...he was absolutely manic...Mick taking Charlie by the arm to the front of the stage during the band introductions...the crowd roared and roared some more for Charlie...Bobby Keys was definitely on...Mick Jagger unbelievable!...

Interesting that if you had attended the last Tokyo Dome show in March 2006 you heard 65% of this set before. The contingent that responds "Well, they heard 35% different" I would respond they really only heard 10% new since, with the exception of Emotional Rescue & Doom and Gloom, every single song has been played in Japan multiple times before.

I completely agree with this.

(It should be noted however,that this was the FIRST time that they performed " Wild Horses " in concert in Tokyo .... after all of those shows. The Stripped version of "Wild Horses" is from the Tokyo 1995 rehearsals but,it was never included in any of the concerts there. They did play the song in Osaka one year but not in Tokyo in concert until today.)

Thanks for pointing that out Winning....I'm shocked that's the first Wild Horses.

Sounds like it was a good show and, in the end, that's what matters.

They played Wild Horses in Saitama in 2006. Just outside central Tokyo.

I see your point. It is close but,I meant IN Tokyo in concert.

" Wild Horses " was probably a better choice for Tokyo than " Angie " again.

(Or,for that matter,a better selection for this show than any of the other songs that are repeated out of proportion.)

It's great to hear the positive news about the concert >>>> the general performance and " Rambler " with Taylor.

Four Surprises.

1-Mick Taylor conducted the band for Slipping Away with his eye contact and chorus.

2-Mick Taylor was dancing with smoking behind Charlie's drum set during Keith was singing Before They Make Me Run.

3-My wife and I were sitting right beside the catwalk.
When Mick, Keith or Lisa approahed the catwalk, the monitor speakers came on and the sound of Charlie's drum came out far more vividly.
That was like a quasi surround effect. It was very interesting and fun experience.

4-Midnight Rambler was a lotmore powerful than they did in 1990. They played it with full throttle.

Lastly let me quote a memorable remark:
"There will never be a love affair so grand and so lasting as mine with The Rolling Stones."

When I saw their show before my nose, I reaffirm my love affair is still going on.
I could get a feeling of happiness from their obscenity, vague manners and three chords rock 'n' roll.

Let's party for the rest of the night!

AWESOME!! Cheers on a great show, and thanks for popping in here to let us know.

The opinions of people who were there, and rocking with The Stones, are the opinions which matter the most, I look forward to reading more of these. Thanks in advance.

Dittos on Max's comments! Glad to hear y'all had a great time. Love the insight about the monitors on the catwalk. Hope y'all are having a great post-show party!

Peace,

Going forward these threads should be devoted to only those people who were there -- no setlist complainers or setlist praisers. The point of a message board is not to kill time arguing about stupid things, or is it?

Me neither and the most amazing thing about this is the line was just as long when the concert ended at 9:10pm!

From the looks of the posts, or lack of, I think most have already accepted the reality of the situation two shows in now. The congratulations to concertgoers will remain virtually clutter-free.

The Tokyo Dome is wonderful.
What a pity that it was a seated show...
