I'm going to agree with you BV. I was at rehearsals at 3rd Encore when nobody was there. I got the info because of a friend who does some work there, and I sometimes rent studios myself. I could have even rented the adjacent studio, but for what? To ruin some band's privacy? I was told posting the location was frowned upon by you so I kept it to myself. As far as fans getting in, I was surrounded by fans. I only got in because I was following YOUR posts. Anyone with some intelligence can do the same. I met you twice yesterday, and could tell you're a nice but private person, so I respected that too. You deserve your privacy, your lifestyle, and everyone's respect for what you do here. You don't need to defend yourself or the band!

Much thanks and respect!

Don´t you all think those "INDUSTRY"-people are real, big Rolling Stones fans
like you??
Isn´t it their right to take the chance of being there, when offered to them?
And: Don´t you think that even when the Stones invite all the people they have a close relationship to in the LA-area it would fill 3 Fonda theaters???
So what?
Lets be happy for those who were in.
And sorry for those who did´nt make it.
And glad that it happened at all.
While I agree with you in theory, my problem with that is that I saw a ton of people leaving after 15 minutes or so. Really sickening after I'd been standing in line 6 hours (to say nothing of people who had done a lot longer stints than me).

Fair play to The Stones, that's a great setlist. I would pay money to see a show like that! I can't believe that some silly bitches are moaning about it not trending on twitter! Who gives a f***? This is The Rolling Stones, not Miley Cyrus!

My sentiments exactly strat. Don't forget, there's a generation of folks out there now who can't wipe there you-know-what without a phone in their hand...must be kinda messy too!

Some sound points in your post bv but I have to say, I don't think I can in all conscience line up with this one...

Quote..."Even if the Amtrak traain I am on now is crashing, I can't blame others. Accidends happen"

I think if the train crashes because the driver's drunk or the engineers are lazy and don't fix the track properly and it crashes, (and I survive) they are definitely gonna hear from my lawyers, even if it got blown over by a tornado there would be a question mark about whether they should have left the station with those things flying around.....

If I don't get a ticket, I blame god just like I thanked him/her when I got the last 3 tickets for Bob Dylan in London in 1978 (at less than face value 'cos the guy thought he was going to get stuck with them........grinning smiley

To see it bigger/zoom in see it on flicker [www.flickr.com]



roller,
flicker is not a great place to link pictures from,
maybe set up a photobucket.com account or use
imgur.com for simple one offs, no account needed.

Once you "get it" posting pictures it is very easy,
but it has to be done exact. You are not the first person
to have issues with this, so dont feel bad. I like to help
people out, especially with pictures... pictures are fun.

To post pictures you have to copy them from your computer to one of the
free internet picture hosting site like [imgur.com] or [tinypic.com] or [photobucket.com]

Once your picture is on the internet you post it here
by placing the image location between two brackets.
[ i m g ] image location [ / i m g ]
do not use spaces between the letters
I have to put the spaces in to make it show up.

You can practice without uploading by finding and using a cool picture on the internet,
1)select the pic,
2)Put your cursor above it
3)right click to "copy image location",
4)paste the image location between the brackets [ i m g ] PICTURE [ / img ]
Do not add the extra spaces. It is a lot easier to do than write.

The official IORR explaination is here [www.iorr.org]
scroll down to the official How to publish a picture on the IORR forum pages.

Well, that's a set list that happens but once every 45 years or so.

In that case, I'll take a classic album reissue over a new album any day.

Goat's Head Soup for next reissue anyone?

Yes Please.

That is like banging the same old whore over and over and over......

Mick said next year they will come back and do the entire "Satanic Majesties". Hey Mick don't make jokes about that album. You would need to bring back Bill for "In Another land", and I am really looking forward to more versions of "2000 Light Years From Home". Also, Matt Clifford is ready!

I was just thinking they can do it without Bill Wyman traveling. Set up a dedicated digital line for him to phone it in from his home in England. And the Stones put up a shimmering hologram of Bill up on stage lip synching

Great post BV, so true! I loved the show reviews of the lucky few of you that got in to witness this epic show but I'm also shocked at how far some of you are going with the "sour grapes" posts. Bottom line is the Stones don't owe us fans a thing. So they only gave away 100+ tickets for this show, so what, that's their prerogative. They could have kept the Fonda show closed to invited guests only so be happy for the few real fans that did get in. There are millions of us out there and the Stones can't please every one of us all of the time. I live in greater LA and would have given anything to be at the Fonda Theater last night, was ready to drive to the venue in fact when the online ticket sale was announced and decided to stay at my office and try for tickets first. I was so bummed yesterday when I failed in getting tickets that I didn't even want to read about the show till today but on the other hand I never really expected to get that lucky either.

Yeah, I've gotten burnt a few times myself by cancelled shows, I flew across country to Atlantic City only to find out the show was cancelled, I also flew all the way to Hong Kong when the SARS epidemic broke out and the Stones cancelled the two Hong Kong and two China shows, I had tickets for all of them, but such is life, it's a risk you take. I have also gotten very lucky and got into a number of club shows during the Licks tour, I was front row right in front of Keith at Roseland for example, you win some and you lose some.

Last night was a brilliant show, I really hope that it will be released on DVD soon and I also hope that the Stones will keep at least some of the gems off the Sticky Fingers album in their Zip Code tour setlist. "I Got The Blues" is one of my top five all-time favorite Stones songs that I've never heard live, it would be such an awesome slow song even for a stadium tour!

See you in San Diego on Sunday, I can't wait!!!

Lose your dreams and you will lose your mind...

Very few here seems to think that is a problem at all, everyone should just think it's normal because it is Stones. They don't owe anything to anyone and they don't care about their fans, nothing new with that. But still it's not acceptable to treat fans like shit when many models and celebrities are leaving the show before it has ended. Fans feeling something is wrong with that doesn't deserve to be called "awful" people or be told they are "moaning" or "whining". It has nothing to do with that, still it's a fact i can't think of any of the biggest bands in the world treat their hardcore fans like that. And why play such a great setlist in front of a crowd where many don't care at all? It's a joke but it's the Stones i know that. From sunday and on we are back with the normal set with miss you and everything.

That does indeed bring back memories, hehe, looks like it was easier this time around for bv but it is well deserved, no doubt about that. I think we can all understand the frustration of those in line who didn't make it (who saw the twitter announcement for the ticket sale, saw the idiots leaving after 15 minutes, etc...) and to a much lesser extent of those us who got up at 5AM thinking it would be streamed on periscope but there's clearly no one to blame for this, everyone is "doing their job". The Stones play the best music they can, their management invites "people" for the camera crews, their "media girl" drums up interest on the social networks, etc...and we as fans go crazy trying to "get in" on the action wherever it might be.

It's all a big circus and thanks to IORR we have a place to discuss it and stay informed even if that doesn't always open all the doors. Remember how it was pre-1995 when there was no internet ? Certainly wasn't as much fun being a fan !
