Sorry I can’t resist the temptation to put all the shows I was at during the required period in order of preference.

1. Tokyo #3 2014
2. Manchester 2018
3. O2 London #2 2012
4. Hyde Park London #2 2013
5. Düsseldorf 2017
6. Edinburgh 2018

For me, Tokyo #3 2014 is not only the best show among those I saw between 2012 and 2018, but also unbeatable of all the Stones gigs I have attended since my first one in 1989. Not a few claim it was the single greatest RS show that happened in Japan, I just couldn’t believe myself that such a strong performance was achieved by them as late at a timing in their carreer as this.

That evening, the Stones gave everything, and then some, and then some more..! Towards the end of Satisfaction, Mick was totally immersed in his singing, looking obsessed. Every one of us who was there was awestruck in disbelief by Mick who kept shouting in an almost unstoppable mode, “Ai yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi...........!!!” When everything was over, Mick Taylor was seen sending applause to his boss.

That was by far their last Japanese show, and they could have gone out with a bang if they won’t set foot in Japan ever after!

I’ve seen them 26 times since 2012.
Can’t believe I can say that in 2018.

My favorites were probably Pinkpop & Paris 2014.
Don’t know really. Lots of great shows to pick from.

Worst was probably Hyde Park I.

Both 02 shows, it had just been so long and the setlists were brilliant.
Chicago 1&2 2013, again great playing, loud as hell, great setlists and Taylor on CYHMK on show 2.
Hyde Park 2, the vibe was great.
Vegas 2016, didn't think it was going to happen and Keith did a 3 song set.
London 2, I didn't think they could deliver a show to that level anymore, they were phenomenal.
Manchester, jam packed stadium, you could hardly move in Gold Circle but the crowd was on fire as was the band. If there was a roof at Old Trafford it would have lifted for the chorus of Like a Rolling Stone!

'Til next time everyone! When you reflect, it was unthinkable we would have had a tour every year since 2012.

Great that you listed Vegas 16 as one of your top faves, the show takes a lot of criticism 'round these parts (..in three, two.. winking smiley ) It was a great show!!

Their first shows back from their long hiatus in '12 gotta top most peoples list lucky enough to attend (I was at Brooklyn).. It was so great to see them and the anniversary shows were fantastic! Manchester was also one of my favorites.. First show for me (ever) in the UK and am wearing the shirt from it today!
Good times cool smiley

Saw them four times since '12... Brooklyn will always hold a special place because it was my wife's first time. My favourite show though was the Friday in Boston. Wonderful little road trip we took. Great pre-gaming in a few spots near the arena. We had terrific seats as well, got Memory Motel, Whip and Emotional Rescue (one of my wife's favourites and first time I got it live). Just a magical night.

2014. Classic Rock Werchter, a fair price for the pit, good sound, Mick Taylor for Midnight Rambler and Bobby Keys in the line-up and great opening acts.
2016. Barcelona, crazy audience and great sound.
2018. Berlin Olympic Stadium. Great venue and sound for lower location of the field.

I only saw two shows, and they were both fantastic!

Kansas City 2015

Twickenham 2018

I guess I'd give the nod to Twickenham since I traveled to their native country to see them. It was a very special evening in the Golden Circle!

O2 London night 1 2012. I couldn't believe they were back and that I was seeing them again, and, first night glitches notwithstanding, I couldn't believe how good they still were. And that setlist! When they opened with I Wanna be Your Man I nearly cried. Well, OK, I did cry.

I have seen 21 shows from 2012 to 2018, starting at the Trabendo Paris October 2012 and ending in Warszawa 2 weeks ago.

The best concerts of that period were with Mick Taylor, I have seen 9 of them : O2 London November 2012 first show, LA 2013, Oakland 2013, San Jose 2023, Hyde Park 2013 Second show, Zurich 2014, Berlin 2014, Paris 2014, Düsseldorf 2014.

The best was San Jose. It was just amazing. Mick Taylor was for The very first time on Satisfaction, and on electric guitar, not on the acoustic.

Well, well, well... doesn't THIS sound intriguing. smoking smiley

Sounds like you had one of those 'Goosebump-Hair Standing On Your Arms'- moments, didn't you RisingStone.

Good for ya!

Does anybody know some good-quality bootlegs (audio ànd video, if possible)?
Was it a Pay-per-view show, anywhere?

o2 London (2nd show)

After the Bigger Bang tour I had serious doubts that they'd be able to do it again. Keith really seemed like a dead weight for much of the 2 shows I saw in London. I remember feeling quite deflated afterwards.

So when they took to the stage at the o2 I was literally holding my breath - and was so relieved to see Keith visibly concentrating on what he was playing - and actually playing throughout the songs (rather than throwing a lot of shapes and not playing much of any worth).

And the joy of seeing/ hearing Mick Taylor back on stage with them was obviously a Stones fan's dream. I did actually cry when Keiths' guitar came in after the choir intro of YCAGWYW.

That was a really special gig I thought. As amazing as many of the shows they've played subsequently have been (not that I saw them all unfortunately) - this one felt particularly tinged with an emotional resonance I'd not experienced before at a Stones show. (All subjective of course!)
