Attn Keith, Ron, Mick, Charlie, Chuck, Daryl, Karl, Tim - Special request for Denver!! For terminally ill fanatic

Dear Keith, Ron, Mick, Charlie, Chuck, Daryl, Karl, Tim - Special request for Denver!! For terminally ill fanatic,

As the unquestioned greatest band ever, I want to thank you. I know of no other band who listens to their fans more. I have seen you all over the world, over 100 times. And what I appreciate most as I look back is how each tour you always play a song that have never been performed. I have been enough to see these "breakouts", and the electricity and excitement for you die hard fans is unreal. If you only knew what it means to us. Whether its Sister Morphine, Sway, Emotional Rescue, Silver Train, or Dancing with Mr. D these events really are such special memories. Thank you.

I have a very special request. I have very close friends at Slotix, and they gave me access to 57 pit tickets, That has to be some kind of record". I love the it setup as its the first time I have ever attended a show, left 5he front row to get a beer, and waled right back to the front row. There is no better concert experience in the world. I never make requests. This is important.

The Denver show began as a celebration of my 50th birthday. But it has morphed into a celebration of life for my good friend Lonnie, He is sick and let's just say this is undoubtedly his last Stones show and probably his last concert ever. When I learned of the situation, I gave him a ticket and asked what I could do. He said his dream was to hear the Stones perform Slave in Denver. WOW!

Now look, given the songs you have performed, it seems likely that Slave just kinda slipped through the cracks. Its a very unique song unlike any you have written. It has a special grooves. I don't thin ts a difficult song. I just think its been lost and somewhat forgotten. So look....I want it to in the songs vote. And I want it to win.

If you look at Tell me, I posted a question about whether it had ever been performed live. Just have a look and you can what passionate emotion and response this song generates. I am so surprised. The only other song I really want to hear is Let it Loose. I have been yelling that at Mick for over 30 years. He knows me because I am always close and always present. But to be honest Slave is my number one hope. And interestingly, others share this hope.

In 1988, the Grateful Dead performed Ripple for the first time since 1981. Nobody knew why until later. It was a request from someone dying. It was sensational and they never did it again. I think it would be amazing for you to do Slave.....for your fans and for Lonnie. What better way to ask? I know Mercy Mercy is this tours.

Karl, you are one badass player. Theres only 1 Bobby Keys....but if anyone can do this right, its you. I know you will have to rehearse it. So please do it....in Denver. I really want to see it on the song vote. it will mean the world to me and Lonnie and many many others. If you prefer for it to be a surprise so be it. It's time for Slave.

DO IT, DO IT, DO IT, DO IT, DO IT! With tremendous appreciation, Alex (the Cuban)

I can get behind this...

Slave is a monster track, I've always loved it and when I played it to my then girlfriend in the 90's she thought it was one heck of a groove

Yes, it would be great to do Slave (at least) once.

This Is really nice thread. If stones' management visits these pages they should suggest it to the band. It would be nice for the ill fan to hear Slave andfor us others it would be one-time little miracle from Tattoo you. It need not be perfect version, just a decent one .....

Just remembered when I first heard Tattoo You at my back then girlfriends place.

I hope this happens. It would be discussed 50 years from now. It would be a great thing for the band I. The long run, but more importantly, an amazing thing for your friend right now.

That is definitely not Keith, I think it's a woman.
I saw them outside the ticket office at one of the NY shows

You need to take this to Twitter. I have no way of proving it, but I like to believe that I coaxed them into playing You Gotta Move in Atlanta.

You have an idea : get them to play rare songs! "Hey guys I have an ingrown nail, plz play "Stop Breaking Down" at the next show!!!"

Not like that... I told them "nice Song choices, but sometimes you got to move" ahead of the Dallas show and had enough people retweeting it so it registered with their social media team. Obviously it helped that it was supposedly a Sticky Fingers tour. Maybe they would have done it anyway
