Here in the UK at stadium shows they usually have outdoor stalls on the grounds of the venue as well as inside. Best course of action is to secure your place in the queue for the show and when the stalls open (usually about 3 or 4 pm) ask someone to mind your place for a few minuets whilst you buy some merch.

I was at the Ricoh around 17.45 and the outside and inside stalls were open.

It was quite easy to get served at that time and that is a first for me.

doors at coventry went open at four. you could buy merch before the doors went open

London you went in 2 phases first into the ring and after an hour into the stadium.

In london we had a lot of people around us who couldn't bring their merch bags inside, in coventry this was no problem.

My sister who had to get a letter from the arena to carry medical items in for her daughter, was not even asked about her bag.

The queue i was in a lady was stopped with a fairly large bag and was not happy with being turned away.

London 2, they were open as soon as the "island" was open and with very few customers at that time so whilst waiting in the pit line on the "island" and the missus holding down the spot, i went out and went to four (4) merchandise stands til I found what I needed -- a size 2XL venue shirt. So, not all merchandise stands are created equal. Try to find out which one is the main one and go to that to get what u need if u cannot find it elsewhere. that's what I had to do.

I also found it interesting that they had two different venue shirts, one for each London Olympic show -- the first yellow and the second blue. This is new in my experience. Usually, one shirt covers all the shows at a particular venue which includes all the dates, but this is a new level (of greed??). I got one of each, tho that was not my original plan. I intended to trade in my first show XL yellow shirt for a 2XL, but after reading the comments on this board about them not letting people in with any sort of bag, I left it at the AirBnB. So, I ended up with two shirts. And thereby had a good reason/excuse to justify my guilt over purchasing excessive amounts of Stones stuff.

Then after getting the t shirts, we bought more merchandise to bring home to give away as gifts and accumulated three bags between the missus and I. We figured that the bag issue had been dealt with at the "bridge" entrance to the "island" and this proved to be correct. They didn't even check any bags once the gates opened which was in fact maybe fifteen minutes after five.

On a happier note, we shared a rail spot with the lovely and charming Beast of this board for the show.

Cocoon, the movie...
On this leg of the tour the boys have been to the pool and swam in the magic waters. - Talk about a New Lease of Life... Ok, the wrinkles are still there but they all seem so fresh and up for it! hot smiley

Most of the press reviews are no longer saying could/should be the Last Time but are praising their vigour and enthusiasm and long may it continue. (my interpretation)

Hell...they are even making me feel younger drinking smiley



...What if anything, does 'This Leg' of No Filter,.. bring to mind for you?

It's hardly "greed" to give people a choice!

I didn't buy either as it happens, but if I'd wanted to I would have got the blue one as that shade of yellow wouldn't suit me at all.

I'm more disappointed by the absence of 2XL in the store. I could squeeze my ample bosom into an XL, but prefer a looser fit. So I haven't bought the one I really wanted.

I have not mapped it out for a while, but it seems like the shows are only a 3-4 hour ride apart, aren't they?

When I was planning on seeing this UK shows, the plan was not going to include any inter-UK flights.

Being chauffered to a private jet bypassing all the hassle is a piece of cake , but for normal people it's a battle getting to any airport and dealing with traffic, security, luggage, etc., etc., etc.
That said, I did share a flight with Charlie on British Airways from Amsterdam to London in '03. He was just like the rest of us travelers/peasants lol, even waiting for his own luggage with his bodyguard when we arrived, and graciously signing a few autographs for those who wanted one. He even posed for a picture with my friend, and I was the lucky photographer which was a good enough memory for me. Respect to Charlie! thumbs up

Well the main point was flying from city to city within the UK which is easy enough for the Stones w/their private jet, chaufer, etc,
But for the normal traveler, all the time and hassle it takes to deal w/an airport, it's easier and in some cases quicker just to take a train or even a bus.
Long distance international flights are another story when time is of the essence, and no real way of getting around airports - you just have to accept and deal with it.

London - Edinburough 1 hour 40 minutes...
