The Ultimate Fantasy 2 year future?

I'm curious, what would you guys realistic or "semi realistic" ultimate next 2 year future for the boys be?

I was inspired by a thread that mentioned "the golden years" 68-72. And imagined if they did a 50 year golden year anniversary tour with a setlist only of songs from 68-72!

Mandatory website vote of at least 3 "deep cuts" from same period obviously ;-)

And then a new album and beginning of never ending world tour :-)

Your ideas/fantasy? :-)

There will never be any great set list diversity and the band, or particular members of the band at least, won't be eager to perform in smaller venues, as the profits will be less. No need to change anything.

They will continue to play the number of shows per year that they've been doing in recent years until 2019 and indeed most likely until the band's 60th anniversary, presumably to be marked with a compilation album and tour.


'Semi realistic':

Each coming tour is different, with different set lists and maybe different stage designs too.

I think the band missed an opportunity by not turning the Zip Code tour into a Sticky Fingers themed tour to promote the re-release. Simply playing, say, 6 tracks from the album at each show would have allowed the album's songs to dominate the set list whilst leaving plenty of room for other songs as well. Think a couple of consecutive Sticky Fingers songs early in the set (as we've seen with Blue & Lonesome songs on the current tour), a couple more after Keith's songs, and an encore of 'Moonlight Mile' and 'Brown Sugar'.

If the Stone's aren't releasing/re-releasing any albums over the next couple of years, they could always base a tour and it's set list around a given album, or period of time, as you suggest. This wouldn't be difficult to do, wouldn't deter casual fans and would offer something new to those who have seen the band multiple times.

New tour with new approach - only theaters and indoor arenas with capacity under 20.000 people. IORR, SFTD, HTW, Miss You and Satisfaction are removed from the setlist and replaced with ''rarities''.

Their final tour should be in the UK and called the "Back To Basics" tour.

Well, it won't happen with The Stones, but Springsteen has come up with an alternative to the 'grind' of touring.
Do a long term residency.
In his case a Broadway NYC venue till February 2018.
