It's a slow day at work so I will now bow out of this thread, I've said the same thing five different times now
But you said it well, and its so true what you have said, its just that some of the others can't handle the truth.
The Stones don't need to do these private gigs.
Oh now we have a written IORR Bible on what's the truth? Nice!!
Oh your back for more doom and gloom
lol yeah I'll be HMS and you can be GasLightStreet for this battle royal.
bye bye johnnyQuote
People used to bum rush Ringo asking him for an autograph, and when he refused they would get upset and say "but we bought all your albums!". His response: Stop buying them then.
But he said it with peace and love. ;-)
Yeah who knows the whole Vegas thing was weird period! I heard from a Big security guy at a casino I was gambling at saying they didn't have enough Police in the city that night because they were afraid if a Riot broke out during the Presidential debates it would of been complete chaos but who knows it's over and it seemed to me Mick was definentaly holding back and that why he put a lot of time into the Harmonica just my observation the show had it's moments I thought too like somebody wrote a few threads back that it seemed everbody had there moments it was'nt a super insane show but it was a good show imo not up there with the best show I've ever seen like some people are stating but it was a good all around show for the circumstances. It was a huge let down for me when I checked in my hotel and they said the show was canceled that took a lot of wind out of my sails for the whole rest of the week that's for sure waiting not knowing if they were going to play or not. Then another issue Security was selling picks down by my side up front on Woody's side and the band saw it and they were yelling s&*$ my way a few times I noticed so that was and issue too the security guy started at 50 then he was saying 400 I laughed and said he was F#$%@#$% NUTS when he said 400!!Unbelievable but that's not the Stones fault that's sin city that's how they do things in that town it's all about MONEY! I hope everybody has a good time tonight at the show I wish I had a little more energy and time I could of got into the show I just found out if I was in Boston through a friend of mine. O well let's hope they all stay healthy Charlies looking pretty frail but it isn't doing one thing to his playing his playing is fabulous still he's really keeping the band as well as Mick Together in my opinion the guitar playing is very erratic, Like Mick says it takes 7 to 20 shows to get that Machine The Rolling Stones firing on all cylinders. That's the problem with these now it seems like almost like there a 1 off show that is not going to cut it the 14 or 15 show thing was pretty cool but this private party deal and a few gigs here or there is not going to make it very well imo. So hopefully Spring and Summer we can get a good little run out of the Boy's!Quote
BV and others who have seen the Stones multiple times can say yeah whatever its just the way the world works and tough luck etc.
But for many people who missed the cancelled show it was a once in a life time chance to see the Stones and for others maybe their last chance to see them.
Why can't people be a bit upset by this, why are we brain washed into thinking the Stones are above criticism.
Please allow people to be pissed off for 5 mins
BV has basically sacrificed his life to get where he is. Others have sacrificed much too (not me). I bailed on Desert Trip because it was too much hassle for me (I live in Los Angeles) and I hate crowds. I figured, "ech, I'll see them in Vegas on the 19th". They canceled. Oh well. It's not a life changer. Even Mick penned "It's only rock and roll". Yeah, I know now I'll only ever see the band if I want to fly to Europe in 2017.
I challenge anyone to find fault in someone who's worked the same job for 55 years and has only had to call in sick a few times....A FEW TIMES! I've probably called in sick more in 2016 than The Stones did in 55 years.
And if you have an issue with them playing a private gig and you not getting in, you're just a jealous whiner. It ain't the 1970's any more, with 50-stop tours, coming to your city soon. Appreciate the fact that the band still even exists. Everyone else started breaking up in 1970....
Hey ego boy you're missing the point, its OK for people to be upset and disappointed with the way the Stones have behaved. The real fans should come first, they could have fitted another date this week to replace the cancelled Vegas gig but didn't, probably due to this private gig. They left it to the last minute to finally cancel a show they had no intention of playing, people spent a small fortune waiting to see if they were going to reschedule.
The other thing is why didn't they just do 2 stadium shows to the fans, it would make just as much profit, this 3 date tour is a joke. People are naturally sickened by the greed of this band. I'm lot a jealous whiner as you put it, iv'e seen this band many times and they have given me more than i could ever ask for, but it needs to be said, they have totally sold out now, very sad.
But you don't really know any of these things, you're assuming worst-case scenarios all the way here.
Mick could have been real sick, they could have had trouble selling out stadiums etc. etc.
I'm not for one moment saying he wasn't sick, read my posts before replying to them
Then who wrote this:
"They left it to the last minute to finally cancel a show they had no intention of playing"
It never crossed your mind that a sick musician, who wants to perform, would wait and see how he feels - so maybe he could do the show after all?
"No intention of playing?" Who told you that?
enuff with the hero worship ... they don't give a shit about their fans. they couldn't care less about the salt of the earth or us. they got what they wanted from us. we made them filthy rich. we bought all the records, the cassettes, the 8 tracks, the cds, the reissues, the t-shirts, the concert tickets, the tour programs, etc... we bought it all. we bought it all, even though it has been very much less than stellar for almost the last thirty five @#$%& years and even worse for the last twenty seven. no artistry, just a brand.
@#$%& greed. that's all they're about now. well, mick and keith anyway. it's all a money grab. charging people 800 dollars for tickets to see the same stale, by the numbers show, year after year. it's outrageous. cancelling the las vegas show and not rescheduling ... not right. their tour insurance will cover it, however, so no loss to them. so what if their devoted fans, many who spent a lot of money to travel to nevada, lost out. no skin off their back. the reality is that jagger can no longer sing three shows in a week, so one of the shows had to be removed from the itinerary and it sure wasn't going to be the billionaire's show.
