Happy Anniversary - [iorr.org] -
Let's hope we can celebrate the 60th Anniversary in 2022 with Live-Concerts / a Tour of The Rolling Stones ....
I'm just 2 months younger than the band
(see my name above)
its amazing to think when i saw the stones in 1990 at hampden park glasgow on the 9th july(i think), i would be watching them in the first half.
if anyone had told me its half time in 3 days i would have laughed.
The photo which often purports to be from the Marquee gig (its in the "tours from now on" Sticky) Is that actually from the Marquee gig and do we know who the photographer is of that photo?. If it isn't from marquee dfop we know when it wss taken. There are a few others of Keith and Brian from the same gig which I have seen in the past. Hopefully someone will have an answer.
Great that we have Stu's setlist as a momento. Once day I will try and listen to all the songs by the original artists.
Many have their dream stones gig mine would be if the lads played that same setlist at an anniversary type show. Even an album like B and L with that set list.
I'm 46 now and been in love with the Stones since I first heard Rewind and then Rolled Gold back in about 1982 when I was 10 years old. Will never get the feeling that hit me when I first heard those riffs and Jaggers voice for the first time. I love alot of music but nothing has hit me like that did before or since.The Stones have been a constant in my life nearly everyday since then. I recall missing them in Stockholm in 1990 thinking my life isn't complete as I probably will never get to see the Stones ( I was an exchange student from NZ and had tickets home and no money to cancel). Thankfully their touring days were just warming up as we have had a further 28 years plus of tours!
My last gigs were the 3 in Buenos Aires in the last South American tour. My beautiful 4 boys named Mick, Dylan, Tyler and Charlie have meant my touring opportunities are more limited these days. I will though get to possible Japanese or Argentina shows if they eventuate next year.
