Easy, a friend offered me a ticket to see the Stones at Echoplex pre tour gig in LA last year and I was too busy at work to make the trip to the west coast. Of course they played the one song with Taylor I've been waiting for all my life, Love in Vain.

I regret not buying more copies of all those early albums. Those suckers are going for big bucks these days and I'm not giving up the ones I have.

...actually, I should say it was not running away from home in 1981 to see the Stones in Seattle, when my parents didn't let me go.

Nah, nothing to regret.

Are you saying that because Mick was singing two octaves lower on that tour with his 'coke-addled' voice, or was it because of the football pants?

Because of his bad Elvis imitation on Twenty Flight Rock.

Living in southeast Michigan as I do, I regret not volunteering to be part of the on-field audience for the 2006 Super Bowl performance. It would have required taking a week off from work (without pay) just to see them play for 12 minutes, but if I had known at the time that it was going to be their final Detroit appearance, I might have done it.

True, I much prefer Paul McCartney's bad Elvis impersonation.

Actually, MJ's Elvis impersonation in Charlie Is My Darling is classic.

1)i went to every tour since 1982, but in 2012/2013 i was so pissed off for ticket prices that i didn't go.

That is not a regret, that is a legitimate complaint.

That they never came back to New Orleans after their abysmally attended show in 1994. It would've been great to see the BRIDGES and LICKS tours.

Being a wee bit TOO hammered at their last stop in Salt Lake. I have only fleeting memories of the performance, including Rain Fall Down and Under My Thumb. A shame because it could be the last time.

When backstage in San Francisco after sneaking in to the tour party....I should have taken a cube or two of their billiard chalk.....I think about how neat it would be to have those cubes on my pool table.

Also, during this party, I lost the pick I caught from Keith during the show...still burns me!

Missing the 1982 and 1990 tours... not seeing them in a club show, for example during the 2003 tour.

My regret is not have the chance to bring my childern with us to a Rolling Stones concert.
Maybe in june we could travel to Madrid...............
This could be the very first oportunity (and surely the last) to bring them to meet the band that has ruled my life.. I don't know if it is a good idea. They are 7 and 10 years old. Maybe in the part of the stadium in which you can seat with no stress for the children.
The problem is my 10 years old son Victor, who has an urological problem that needs to go to toillette several times, he must drink a lot of water and he has an urostomy, a hole in his back connected to his ureter, so part of the urine drains to a bag attached on his back. We should get into the stadium with lot of water bottles and a bag with all the tools and supplies to change the urostomy bag in the case it drops.
Is there any place in the stadium in wich wse could be mor comfortable??
Maybe the best choice is to leave children at home

KeithNacho, I think it's wonderful that you want to share the Stones with your children. I don't know about Europe, but in the US, you could request handicapped seating for your son. These seats are always close to exits and easy to get in and out of quickly. You should call the stadium and ask about it.

I moved to NYC in the fall of '97 and was crashing on a friend's couch for the first couple of months. I still had my car and was planning on driving up to Port Chester for the MTV theater show, just to check out the scene. Just before I was about to leave, my friend/host got a phone call and, in a panic, told me that his girlfriend was on the way over and was going to beat the crap out of him because she heard he was having a little fun on the side. "You have to stay! It won't be as bad if you're here!" So I stayed... and found out about 15 years later (probably on this board) that it was pretty easy to get into the gig.

So yeah, missing the Stones in a theater - that still hurts.

At least I got to see my friend's girlfriend burst through the door and punch him in the face, though!

I saw this tour at a small club in San Jose....found Jo Wood in crowd...talked to her quite a bit.

Also talked to Ronnie a bit after the show, and Bo before the show, while waiting for Ronnie to show up...quite the evening.

Late August, 1989, I flew over from Japan to America for a three-week holiday, and part of the purpose was catching The Rolling Stones live, who had never played in my country back then, on the Steel Wheels Tour that was officially sold out everywhere, according to the news source.
In Pittsburg, I bought a ticket from a person who had a spare ticket and kindly sold it to me at 35 dollars, a cover price plus fee. It was a good stand seat on the right side and relatively close to the stage. Lucky, I thought.
Then in Cincinnati, I tried a couple of touts. Both offered me a stand seat. The first one was 40 dollars, seeing the band from the right side. The second one 50 dollars, dead center. I chose the latter. 
I entered the huge stadium, took the seat and set my eyes on the stage over and beyond the ground, only to be gutted by what I saw. There was a tall, gigantic lighting tower that was blocking my view right in the middle. Soon the show time came. I never caught a sight of Mick and Charlie during the performance, except when the singer moved sideways. Seemingly all of the seats occupied in the block I was in, and unable to move somewhere I could secure a decent view, all I could do was staying there and giving an occasional glance at the screens left and right.

You know, there is a moment in life that you tell yourself, you can't always get what you want...

I'd atleast call the stadium or organizer of that event and just ask them about handicap spots and accomodation during the concert. I bet i'd be an experience for both you and the kids =). There are always work arounds sittuations that are less than ideal.

Seems to me they are too young to fully enjoy the Stones live. Especially because your son may become quite uncomfortable in a stadium setting.

Why not plan a Rolling Stones afternoon over a weekend and play part of the the 4 Flicks DVD? With refreshments...If the kids love what they're seeing and hearing, you can schedule yet another afternoon for them to see the entire DVD.
