Yeah, I hear ya, Palais Royale. (Now that was a superb small gig!). I have no desire to cross over to Buffalo again. I did so in 1978 and 1980 but those circumstances were different, weren't they?

As someone who has attended dozens of shows in both locales, and speaking as a proud Canadian, I don't understand how anyone could favour the Toronto concert experience over the same experience in Buffalo.

The only thing Toronto's got on Buffalo when it comes to concerts is nicer and cleaner streets and hotels. And that ain't rock n' roll.

I've been to Stones concerts in both cities as well...sitting/partying in the grandstand at CNE stadium in Toronto during the Steel Wheels and Voodoo Lounge tours was about as good as it gets. Sadly, that place no longer exists...so...as another proud Canadian...you are unfortunately right because the Rogers Centre(indoor stadium) is the worst concert experience on the planet!

Well, they do MANY small gigs in TORONTO, not Buffalo. I prefer the small gigs and I've been to all of them in Toronto since RPM in 1994. I prefer my own bed in Toronto. It's a hassle crossing the border.And rehearsals in Toronto are a lot of fun.

ETA: Toronto has Jerry Stone.

Well, yes, a small venue in Toronto, or anywhere for that matter, beats a stadium.

But I'll take Ralph Wilson Stadium, its raucous crowd and all the "festivities" in its spacious parking lots over the Rogers Centre and its sleepy audience every day of the week.

Yes, I was at those CNE shows in '89 & '94 and they were great.

But the '97 show at the Ralph was off the hook. Spent several hours in the lot with 10s of thousands of other Stones fans getting significantly primed. Then stood in the frenzy that was the first 10 rows on the floor. What a night!

Speaking of Toronto - I just remembered that I was told they would do two shows at Toronto's Rogers Centre. I was told this way back in late 2014 - early 2015.

BUT, it looks as though plans have changed and it's now Buffalo.

Perhaps the Quebec City thing changed the Toronto concert plans?

Wow tried to Quote the message Bv it's been a while since I posted here obviously I just wanted to say nice message and I remember Missoula well had a great time and great fun and I got to drink at a micro brewery everyday in town sorry you missed it the beer that is.lol. Anyway hope to see you on tour I will be Rolling this time around for sure! Hey Plexi am I going to see you this time around ? sorry about that double post Bv just erase it thanx!Looking forward to getting back on tour, hope to see you Bv!


Not sure which show or shows I will be seeing yet, but if you are there, I am sure we can meet up. Do I know you? In any event, it does not matter. I hope to at least be at Levi's/Santa Clara near San Jose/San Francisco as it immediately follows the American Library Association conference in San Francisco so my trip is (partly) paid for. But we don't know if they will be playing there or in Raleigh yet.

I'd like to see them make an appearance on the Late Show for one of the last Letterman's shows. That would be great since I've always been a fan of Dave and the Stones.
I'm sure Dave + the Letterman team + Paul Shaffer are well aware that the show will end in May and that the Stones will be in town around that time.

Looking forward to these 'Sticky Fingers' shows, really hope though that when the time comes they put on a similar themed show for the UK.

Could be the reason why they filmed the Streets Of Love video in Ottawa.

Yeah Toronto's clean all right. When I was working on a film up there and we had made the 2 block area trashy to look like NYC where the plot was set, the whole crew took a break during a late shoot....when we came back people from the city had actually started cleaning up the trash! Amazing. grinning smiley

Just on the basis of this thread alone, I am now likely going to Buffalo.
I might even drive my own car and take breaks every 3 hours. This is importnant. You never know, this could be the final U.S. gig.

Does Greyhound have transportation to stadium?

just a kiss away contest
Posted by: ifyacantrockme ()

i was looking at the contest grand prize and it does not specify any concert tickets. so, they fly you to an undisclosed location, for a 2 night stay to record you in a booth announcing the band for future uses, and that's it?

see below:
PRIZES: A total of one (1) grand prize will be awarded to one (1) winner ("Grand Prize Winner"). Grand Prize will consist of two round trip tickets to an undisclosed location within the United States during the month of July 2015, two (2) nights hotel accommodations, one (1) commemorative video filmed by the official Rolling Stones videographer. The Winner will also have the opportunity to record the sentence, recorded by Sponsor or Sponsor's designee, "Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones" to be used for promotional purposes in Sponsor's sole discretion.

As others have suggested, I'd think they'd throw in two tickets, also in an undisclosed location. cool smiley

Otherwise, I can see it now, the winners scramble for tickets on the secondary market...

I looked and they only go to downtown Buffalo from what I seem to read.

I've been with Dave and Paul over the past 30 or so years, especially when he had the 12:35 NBC slot. Very funny, thank goodness for YouTube to relive on occasion. I'll miss Dave(he's 68) but looking forward to Colbert. I would be shocked if the Stones visited his show, Keith heard of too many monologue jokes at his expense.

Yes, I meant the PREVIOUS warm-up gigs at RPM, Palais Royale, El Mocambo (kind of a warm-up gig), Horseshoe Tavern (again not a warm-up gig per se), The Phoenix Concert Theatre.

How do you get in and/or obtain tix - be an insider ot have connections to a kindly insider.

NOTE: As of NOW - there's no warm-up gig planned for this 2015 tour.

Best of luck!

Personally, I think Memorial Stadium is almost definitely out of question for the Stones. It's only about 12,000 (pretty tiny for a stones show)

Correct. The warm-up gigs are not announced in advance. It's really a surprise gig to thank the city of Toronto and to hold a party for the people who work with the Stones. General fans are lucky to get in!
