I confess to being a bit too absorbed in my photo taking, thinking it might be my last time seeing MY BAND....this was my 40th Stones concert..I took over 600 photos, which I will treasure forever..BUT you can't be listening, watching & taking photos AND participating all at once....and the fans around me were ALL taking photos and not singing & dancing as much..this was section 109 row A. I do wish I was more PRESENT...and singing more...and I hope Mick could still feel all of the powerful positive energy we generated. As far as nit-picking every note, I do think it is a bit overdone. The review that called " Play With Fire" RAGGED disturbed me because I thought it was beautifully performed!! It sounded like the recording with Mick articulating each word to give it that Victorian feel...RAGGED it was NOT! Maybe another reason for LESS audience participation during RAMBLER is the fact that we ( the fans who have seen dozens of shows) remember that RAMBLER was once a real show-stopper..with Mick slapping the stage with his studded belt and crawling across the stage, VERY MENACING....so of course the crowd SCREAMED! Now, it is TOO TAME! I am not going to be guilty of what I just accused folks of doing....nit-picking so I'll end by saying that I cried when I saw the band take the stage...especially seeing Mick racing to center stage after that horribly scary time we all just went through...wondering if he'd be Ok...to see him ALIVE & WELL, I cried tears of joy....and I am eternally grateful for everything that the Rolling Stones have given to me, all of the moments of pleasure, awe, surprise, happiness and the awareness that I have lived through some of the most powerful rock'n roll EVER PERFORMED! We are all blessed and we should NEVER forget that....mistakes and all...God Bless The Rolling Stones. It doesn't get any better than this!
What a beautiful post. Bless you.

What a most wonderful performance by my favorite band of all time The Rolling Stones . Highlights for were YCAGWYW which featured a tremendous solo by Ronnie Wood , Ride Em On Down with special Guest Gary Clark Jr. who delivered and then some I tell you ! Keith the Human Riff Master performing the most amazing solo on Honky Tonk and bless him and his magical hands and fingers plying his trade on his Fender Telecaster . It was such a warm beautiful summer evening and the song still reverberating in my ears and mind was Keith Richards masterpiece Slipping Away which I shall remember forever and was so poignant !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another observation from Sunday night: Keith holds his white guitar pick in his mouth on songs where he alternates fingers and pick. Has he been doing this for some time now? (Not a critique)

Been doing it for a long time... sometimes more noticeable than others.

First concert EVER played at Gillette for any music was Licks and that Rambler was so good (memorable) as he donned a black hoodie and as like decades before he assumed the role...
it was one of the more (most) memorable versions of mine since 75. He owned that stage and what makes (IMO) this 12 minute blues/rock opera so good is his getting into character.
Not the faster paced versions we get at times but a real raw performance. Its so obvious how every member feeds off him. And the audience too...
BUT the age of iPhones is changing some of this and not for the better. (again IMO)

Every show since 89 one can walk away nit picking... heck almost every intro to CYHMK during Licks started as a train wreck but by mid point it was such a joy too hear after decades without none of that mattered much. So to me I did my best to keep phone in my pocket and soak in all the Mental Pictures I could as this ride isn't for ever. The conductor is collecting tickets now...

I'm glad you appreciate my perspective, drwatts....only age and 40 Stones shows could bring me to that point.

Um,lotta questions in there but if you know all that ,you know enough.

I can tie up some loose ends by saying the band changed when they became a stadium act.
We have a thread about Ronnie goofing around and talk of Keith being animated or not.
My first tour Mick crawled and whipped the stage,this depraved madman in heavy make up.there was no need for the guitar players to do anything other than play in the limited space they stood.

That was 75 - the next two tours Rambler was dropped,and for good reason.as Mick said “oh now he’s gonna hit the stage with his belt(rolls eyes)”
18000 people were riveted but the band had moved on.

In 78 and 81 they were finding a balance,the bar band playing to 80,000.the sound was good,a scattershot of monster songs from Some Girls to Tattoo You and probably the time the much maligned hot rocks set was diminished the most.

One of the things I regret the most was coining the phrase “Vegas Stones” on stonesdougs site in the early 2000s.
I never expected it to catch on,it was something I said in a moment of irritation and it was idiotic,i regret it to this day.

In 89 the band became perfect-they mastered the stadium show,brought the early era,the middle and 78-82 era together.they brought a bigger sound by adding backing singers,keyboards and a horn section to fill the giant spaces.
Fans who could have never scored a ticket in an arena could go see the best band ever.it was beautiful and it is to this day.
