They were all kinda the same. Except the Vegas show which would rank as least favorite.

One thing I don't think I ever mentioned was the 30-something usher who I wondered if she put on a pink shirt and just walked in because she was the only person in my entire range of vision who seemed to be enjoying the show.

I've seen 11 since 2012, and would rank them something like this - all very subjective as to how much I enjoyed the show for various reasons. They were all great in their own way, but it's interesting to note that my 2 favorites were in my hometown of Boston, and not the exotic locations I was fortunate to visit.
11. Milwaukee Summer Fest, 2015
10. Hyde Park London #1, 2013
9. Macau China, 2014
8. Stockholm, Sweden, 2014
7. Amsterdam, 2017
6. Rio De Janeiro, 2016
5. Newark NJ , 2012
4. Buffalo, NY 2015
3. Prague, 2018
2. Boston Garden #1, 2013
1. Boston Garden #2, 2013 (got upgraded to the Pit about 5 songs in with my daughter!)

For me, my favorite is nearly always my last one...
In this case, Twickenham.. which would likely be top three even if not following my pattern cool smiley

Too many to choose from really and a lot of favorites for different reasons.
2012 in Brooklyn was extra special as it had been a while and it was sooo good!

Without a shadow of doubt Twickenham, second to that Paris 2.

The six shows I saw for the 50 and Counting tour with Mick Taylor were all great, with the second Staples Center show on May 20, 2013 being the all around best of the bunch. With Taylor playing on four tunes (Sway,CYHMK, MR, and Satisfaction), along with All Down the Line, Far Away Eyes, You Got the Silver, and Before they Make Me Run in the set - not to mention some choice deftly played warhorses - it was one for the ages.

I also had a blast at both Desert Trip shows, and while the Stones' performances weren't the best, the overall atmosphere of seeing all those legendary bands together was spine-tingling and very memorable.

I only saw them the two times they played in my hometown Stockholm in 2014 and 2017. Both shows were pretty similar but the 2017 show was more enjoyable because of the better setlist and a more inspired performance. Keith did more mistakes in 2017 but the 2014 show felt very uninspired and lackluster. Hoping to see them maybe one more time but with the never changing setlist I won't bother to travel abroad for a show.

My choice is Rome 2014. Atmosphere of the place (Circus Maximus) great audience (Keith side) right next to the stage. Those fans around me was as hot as in Buenos Aires. Topless girls, everybody jumping ,dancing and singing. I only could stop jumping while the ballad song (Str. Of Love) was played. Unforgettable. And the small tribute bands concert night before. And I was bit younger

I've seen them 20 times since 2014 - all within the Pit or within spitting distance of the stage and my top 5 shows are:

Perth 2 - 2014 - Loving Cup :-)
Fonda - 2015 - No words...thanks Matt!
La Plata 3 - 2015 - The squash of the fans!
Lucca - 2017 - Stunning town and vibe
Berlin - 2018 - Slipping Away

Cheers

*Yes, without a doubt.

I think Dan is referring to the 2013 MGM show, and if so I was there also but can't really make a fair judgement. I had flown in to Vegas the day of the show directly from Hawaii after being there for a month, and the chaotic sensory overload of Vegas was a bit too much culture shock. I went to a bar for the pre-show meetup and drank loads of beer (normally I might have one or two), and smoked a mighty giant spliff! Add in the time difference and jet lag, and that's nearly all she wrote. I do remember the great Fred Hardin gave me one his excellent custom made t-shirts. I also remember being dealt nosebleeds for my Lucky Dips, but somehow managed to maneuver my way all the way down to the floor before the show even started. As for the actual show itself, I vaguely remember Katy Perry guesting on a song, and clearly remember Mick Taylor on a stunning version of Midnight Rambler, but as for the rest? I thought it was pretty good...I think.

Same here, no guests they just let Mick Taylor loose & I swore the nose of crowd during CHMK & Sway was louder , People really enjoying the moment,

Yes, the entire arena was very loud and appreciative when Taylor came on stage. Even my sister and bro-in-law who are casual fans and had seen the Stones one show for every previous tour in L.A. since '81 were in awe. And my young niece became a true Stones fan that night (though she still thinks the Beatles are the greatest). When the Zip Code tour was announced, my sister and bro-in-law decided against going partially because of no Mick Taylor, partially because of the outrageous prices, and partially because the closest show was in San Diego (the tour opener). To paraphrase what they told me: "It will never be as good as the Staples show, and that's the memories we want to keep of them". I also have friends in the San Diego area who also felt the same - even though the show was in their backyard, the fact there was no Mick Taylor and it was overpriced was a turn off for them. Can't say they were completely wrong in their decision as the San Diego show was so-so for a variety of reasons - the Stones were a bit rusty on opening night, and there was no Mick Taylor.

I haven´t see that many shows, but most special were
London 2012, O2 #1, because of the vibe, that 60ies setlist starters and the guests (if I may call Bill Wyman a "guest") and
Waldbühne 2014 because of the venue, my pit ticket, the choir at YCAGWYW and Mick Taylor being around.
Maybe Munich 1 in 1990 - the first cut is the deepest (SORRY - EDIT - AFTER 2012) STUPID ME.

Cheers, Fillmore

Philadelphia 2013: Aaron Neville on Under the Boardwalk and Mick Taylor on Can't You Hear Me Knockin'.

Buffalo 2015, my 25th Stones show on my 55th birthday, was also aces.

Amsterdam (2017)
Stockholm (2017)
Warsaw (2018) - the worst organisation imaginable but a history for my country (I'm from Poland)
Stuttgart (2018) - Lucky Dip, Pit B BUT RIDICULOUS PEOPLE PUSHING why? what for?

Roskilde was special. Iconic venue and their “Old stage”. The longest version of Midnight Rambler it seems, and with Mick Taylor. The last Brown Sugar solo from Bobby .-( And so cool to see and feel them win over a tough, young and diversed crowd big time.
