nice to see Mick out and about...in a city where I doubt he will be bothered that much by the locals.

Honestly I would be thinking some people would go on over. But I may be wrong.

I really hope you all get something special. No fan vote.. Hopefully that is a good sign!

Maybe they are starting to get some flack for cheesy setlist and running order. All they have to do is peek around here for the vibe. Once you get past all the cheerleaders and worshipers you get some real reviews and comments.

I personally think they should just junk the entire setlist and redo the placement of songs and most importantly add about six more tracks. Jeez, they don't have any new material so get creative and open the catalog.

Well said. But likely they are not well rehearsed enough to pull off anything more than the typical warhorses and the Sticky Fingers numbers they've worked on. I think they are aware of the stale setlist and their whole approach to opening it up a bit this year was a few SF tunes...nothing more.

peace

Instead of selling the idea that they are touring Sticky Fingers they should be honest and say that they are touring Hot Rocks.

This tour is for people who never saw them and my children who are under 13 years old.

I feel sorry for old fans who have gotten to the point where they feel "Gimme Shelter", "Midnight Rambler", "Brown Sugar" and "Jumping Jack Flash" comprise not the among greatest songs in rock history, but components of a "cheesy setlist". While I think those tracks still sound magnificent to those who only listen to their albums and see perhaps a show per tour, for bootleg, YouTube and setlist enthusiasts, it seems familiarity really does breed contempt.

Yeah these grumpy old geritol fans who whine about not getting their deep cuts are pretty pathetic. They need to go home and dust off their LP's. I'm going to a stadium show to have fun with my son and listen to some great classic rock.

I hope I never get so old and bitter that all I can do is whine about my favorite band. Imagine how miserable these old men are in person.

Hey, I admit, I somewhat resemble those remarks! spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

However, I do take umbrage at that dismissive nature of your comment re. "cheerleaders & worshipers."........REAL reviews & comments?
You're saying that these types can't even be objective enough to formulate a well-balanced review?

Firstly,The day a guy puts down cheerleaders is, well, just a sad day, period. Imho.sad smiley

And worshipers? Yes some of us really admire & look up to the talent of The Stones.But that doesn't mean we just BLINDLY look up to them, with no critiqing at all. I don't think I've seen anyone on this web site who doesn't formulate their own opinions of the RS including sometimes a negative comment.

Worshiping involves sacrifice & giving. I don't give that much to The Stones, none of us do (except for people like bv that do work a lot for the RS without actual pay). There's no one passing around the hat for contributions, promising that all my dreams will come true.

In fact, I consider myself the happy recipient of practically FREE stones music every day of my life. The giving/taking actually involves me doing the taking 99% of the time. I haven't had to spend much on their music, esp. when you factor in all the listening hours, days, years.

Concerts are the cost but if you don't like their concerts you don't have to go. Just ignore the concerts.

Perhaps only people who have ummmmmm, Idols to Worship would feel so disappointed when their Idols don't deliver what they want.

I'd sure rather cheer on a thing that brings me joy & happiness than the alternative: giving ones heart over to nothing and feeling entitled & cheated out of something all the time.

An Empty Heart is Like an Empty Life.

Don't mistake enthusiasm or loyalty for lack of discerning criticism or intelligence. But to beat a thing (setlist complaints) to death is just.....boring.

Go Go Stones! LUV YOU STONES!! hot smiley AND please interpret every one of my exclamation points as a symbolic POM-POM!!! hot smiley

I'm not really directing my comments at anyone in particular here....but it does get wearisome to constantly hear all the criticism re. setlists so often on so many of these Threads. Life's too short.....

I know, I know...I sound like Blah, Blah, Blah ....and so do you constant setlist complainers.

(what the he** is HER problem?? who knows...? but the word is don't go near her if there are any beer bottles that may easily get broken)


Thanks for listening.

Well said....better than I could. Go drbryant!

You're absolutely right...these familiar songs ARE the very best rock lyrics & music ever created to-date on our planet. Why wouldn't people want to be treated to it!

Something special would be great! I might be misremembering but wasn't the San Diego fan vote also so late that everyone thought it had been ditched?

The Song Vote for San Diego was by the way on Twitter on May 23, 7:55pm Pacific Time: [Twitter.com] .

So that I can meet people who post stories on that forum about how much they hate me?

Possibly bv was referring to the people on shidoobee.......

That makes sense.
There has been some extremely unkind posts towards bv there lately.. one poster in particular.. vulgarly offensive.

Judging from the few things I've read on that site he has plenty of folks who respect him and value his info. and insights too. Just about every review and report he posts here on IORR is copied on that site. I think it's a bit overblown to think he has haters over there. Probably just a few bad eggs he's banned from this site who are still childishly holding a grudge.

peace

Hmmm, ignore the BV bashing - we all see what he does for us here. You can not
Please everyone.

Yeah, that, too. Other pages as well, like rollingstones.com/crossfire-hurricane/

Maybe they're switching IPs and haven't linked the symbolic URLs correctly yet.
I bet some guys are really busy there right now... eye rolling smiley

Oh, wait: they built that site with Wordpress... could be a WP issue then, hehehe ...

Someone on the Startrib comment section suggested Paul Westerberg in addition to Prince. That would be alright thumbs up
