Don't even try to bring a bag, no matter how small it is. I have an ultra small bag, just for my poncho and camera, but they denied me access in Minneapolis. I could not throw it away, so I emptied it, put the stuff in my pockets, the empty backpack under my jacket, and walked in. So silly. But I know they don't want us to carry in any bombs of course.

I understand "no backpacks" but no purses is highly excessive in my opinion. if a bomb is small enough to fit in a small purse it's probably small enough to fit in your pocket.

Not everyone in Texas is a Cowboy fan. I have to assume the Stones chose Dallas due to its geographic advantages. It can draw fans from Oklahoma and other regions of Texas. In Houston people cheer for the Texans. I also don´t like the Cowboys. My son is excited about getting a T'Shirt. We´ll check the vending tables tomorrow. These blue shirts are horrible.

I don't like the Cowboys either, but I think it's a cool shirt. It's at AT&T Stadium, so it's only natural that they have some shirts that reflect that. Many bands have begun to do these sports/concert hybrid merchandise. Obviously not everybody in the town, state or region is going to be a fan, but you don't have to be to wear it. I'm not a Mavericks fan either, but I like wearing my Pearl Jam/Mavericks shirt. There are other shirts available, maybe not city specific, but I see they have a lot of different tour shirts of various designs/colors that list all the tour dates on the back. If you want the Dallas shirt, I guess you have to come to terms with the fact that you're going to see them in the Cowboys' house.

You are right! And the best part about it is that I don´t have to buy it if I don´t want it. I´m sure we´ll find the right shirt to remember the show.

By the way, my son will wear the T-shirt I bought at the Cotton Bowl in 1981!

Wow, maybe I was super lucky.

I could bring my tote bag(45cm x 35cm x 20cm) in Minneapolis. Putting some t-shirts, a laptop PC, a digital camera, power cables, a baseball cap, some paperbacks so on....(Only an umbrella denied)

But I won't bring next time.
These were hand carry items in my flight. I saw MPLS show while my 20 hours layover at Minneapolis. I had no accommodation and needed to bring them.

The NFL stadiums like for Dallas, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Nashville, Kansas City are VERY strict about the bag policy. It's basically you can bring in a clear bag, very small clutch and nothing else. No backpacks, camera bags, big purses etc... The venue/team websites all list what is permitted or not.

cowboys gear is up for sale for all you cowboys...

[rollingstones.shop.bravadousa.com]

Those shirts are offensive
5 yards

What's a bit offensive is the slightly overwhelming selection of merch. It's like walking into a WalMart...too many choices, man! (and loads of cheap crap).

peace

Its all crap
..and I will never purchase Cowboys colors ever. Montana showed them how much they suck.

Offensive

But I will buy a $12 Heineken

Awesome, which show did you go to? I really love the "@#$%&' Wonderful" bootleg, which is the Halloween show I believe. Over the past couple of years I've met 2 people at work who were at that show. I'm so jealous, I was only 1 year old so I wasn't able to score tickets. I haven't decided what I'm going to wear yet. I've narrowed it down to either a shirt I have that has a photo that appears to be from the same session as the Respectable single cover, and a '75 Tour Of The Americas shirt (not vintage, a recent piece of Bravado merch). I'm leaning towards the latter, because it's Packers colors (green and gold), which can be a covert middle finger to the Cowboys.

Pissed that they won't use the big screen/video screen for this concert :/ Every single concert I've been to there, they've used it. C'mon Jerry...

That's the thing the stadium is most famous for, and a big reason why people want to hold events there in the first place. I'm not terribly concerned because I don't think I'll have that great of a view of it from my seats, but it seems silly not to use it in some way. Maybe Mick is self-conscious about having his face on a 3,800 square foot HD screen. Crows feet would be the size of a Buick.

Section C134. It's the first section above the floor, on the seats along the side on Ronnie's side, but pretty far down along the floor, so not the greatest seats. I'm low, but far. They might be better than I think, I don't know, but I'm a little disappointed in them because it's not what I thought I was getting. But they're good enough, and I'll enjoy the hell out of it regardless. I can probably see the screen from there, but the pictures I've seen from that section make me think it might be an awkward view, looking up at it. I'm more likely to just be looking in the direction of the stage than up at that.

That's pretty cool I guess, and a nice alternative for the non-sports people. But even as a Cowboys hater, I think I have to go with the Cowboys shirt. Red, White and Blue aren't really my colors, that's not political or philosophical, just taste in clothes/colors. The poster I do like, but I think I'm going to stick with cowboy guy one. Will go nicely with a couple of Pearl Jam posters I have.

Indeed and it can work as a Rorschach test :

I dont know, but it looks like it is the four legs of a horse, or is it a sheep, the cowboy is standing behind, doing something, I have no idea. Do those cacti look to be male?

I like the simplicity of the big tongue poster, but "Zip Code" font is way too big.

Happy with the song vote choices. Would like them to play all of those songs to be honest. If it's a true vote, then I'd say Street Fighting Man will win.

Hoping for a Dallas reference with Rip This Joint in the #3 slot, though that might be a long shot.

"Roll another one" I like this cowboy poster and now I'm waiting for this one: "Geronimo".
