Your Biggest Stones Regret
Posted by: fahthree ()
Date: March 28, 2014 15:15

Tomorrow is the 15th anniversary of my biggest regret - March 29, 1999, Hartford CT. I would have heard I Got The Blues. My friend who I attend most of the shows with blames my girlfriend at the time for this crime. I don't remember all the circumstances but she's guilty. She once said that I loved Mick more than her -- she was right.

Not seeing them in the 70s. I'm old enough - managed to see Bowie in 1972/73 aged 13 and 14 but not the Stones. My friend from school went to Wembley in 73 and absolutely loved it.

I could have bought a bus/ticket package to one of the '89 shows in Atlanta (first time I was old enough). In college & money was tight. Thought about it, thought about it, made the call two days after they had sold out. I'll always have a bit of regret that I never got to see them while Bill was still in the band.

Peace,
Mr DJA

I was at the Heartfort show! I Got The Blues was great, but I was bummed about missing Moonlight Mile from two shows before! My greatest Stones regret is not finding a way to see a Licks tour theater show!

I somehow missed Moonlight Mile also on a couple occassions. I've heard almost the rest of SF (Sway, CYHMK, Sister Morphine) but never MM. That and not getting Silver Train in Macau a few weeks ago.

The theater shows were tough. Originally I wasn't going to the Tower but I couldn't accept the fact that people would be there who didn't deserve to be there so I ended up buying one of those packages that included all three venues. Granted, I already had tickets for the other shows but I needed to be there.

Falling totally asleep in the 1998 Houston 2nd show because of jetlag and a f... cab driver who did not keep his promise to pick up us at the other part of the town... We walked like idiots... and Houston is pretty large to walk.. I remember Mick with a baseball cap, country song, Dead Flowers... Then BOOM sleeping in the storm like in my bed. Worst is I perfectly woke up after the show and had a drink in a bar "So how was the gig at the Compaq Center ?" "Mmm,all right, I guess".

3)in 2007 they rehearsed few days in Milano, 90 km far from my hometown, and i didn't go to Alcatraz . stupid

Going to wait on the beer line at the Pontiac Silverdome on Dec. 2, 1997 and faintly hearing something that kinda sounded like Shattered, then returning to my seat to catch the very end of the song and realizing I had missed Nineteenth Nervous Breakdown.

I was outside Vredenburg, not having a ticket! Stood closeby and could listen a bit though....great atmosphere there amongst us unlucky fans not having tickets. And my American friend and I were even pictured on the front page of the paper the next day! smiling smiley

That sucks. Never leave your seat until the second half, you might miss a rarity.

While I bought tickets and went to one of the Essen shows in 1973, I had all the time in the world to follow the tour around, but didn't. I assmued all shows were sold out which they were not. Figured the tickets would be tough because of how hard it was to get tickets for the boys on the US 72 tour. My friend travelling with me was also a big fan. We just thought we were lucky to get tickets for the Essen show and were happy just to be able to see them there. The Essen show was rockin. What idiots we were! All we had to do was train around and follow the tour. Despite meager funds available while travelling at that time, the tickets were not expensive at all. It was completely doable. Sonofa.....Doh!!

Not having the time or money to invest in a premium Stones bootleg collection (I had one - - only one - - which I've misplaced).

Not seeing them in a club show.

@andrea66: I spent ages in front of the Alcatraz waiting for something that never happened. All in all, you didn't miss anything!

Part 1. Stuck outside the El Mocambo with no ticket - and going around to the back alley and seeing the roadies taking the guitars in. Gut wrenching.

Part 2. Leaving the 1981 San Francisco 2nd show during "Time Is On My Side" - because I had to catch a flight to get back to work. Gut wrenching again.

Missing the only night at Wembley 1995 when they played Monkey Man. However, I did catch them doing at Brixton, a week later.

Me too! I remember desperately trying for the Astoria in London but with no luck. And to make matters worse, I was round the corner from the venue that day (for work). I remember seeing Stones fans get off the train at Tottenham Court Road station....as I got on to go home!

The Licks tour still holds good memories for me. It was the first time I went to more than one show on a tour. Friends and family thought I was mad (they thought just once was enough).
