Shortest 'Modern-Era' Rolling Stones Concert
Posted by: Big Al ()
Date: October 14, 2020 13:38

Discounting the obligatory pre-tour club show, what are some of the shortest 1989-2018 Stones show's in terms of performance duration? Are there any that clock-in under two hours, for instance?

Many shows clocked in before the 2hr mark.
Many times was because of weather or différent situations.

I remember Chicago Soldier Field 2006 for instance.. weather was atrocious and the show was shortened..
Charlotte 2005 too with a bomb threat..The Hague 1998, Istanbul 98 and many more..

Several times when Mick lost his voice, Vegas 16 is one of them I think

Chicago, October 11 2006, must have been a short one. Freezing cold, apparently:

You Got Me Rocking
Live With Me
Monkey Man
Sway
She Was Hot
Streets Of Love
Midnight Rambler
Tumbling Dice
--- Introductions
You Got The Silver (Keith)
Little T&A (Keith)
Under My Thumb (to B-stage)
Rough Justice
Start Me Up
Honky Tonk Women (to main stage)
Sympathy For The Devil
Jumping Jack Flash
Satisfaction
Brown Sugar (encore)

Some of the European shows in 2007 were shortened due to the heatwave. Budapest and a few others.

Although not "modern era", I saw them at the
Denver Coliseum in 1972, and they only played
for just over 1 hour, as I remember it.

One of the shortest shows by any band that
I ever saw.

However, the show remains the premier concert
of my lifetime.

An 18-song set-list. I wonder if there were any last-minute 'cuts'? North American shows were usually around the 21-track mark during this leg, no? It's a known unfortunate fact that they'd drop to 19 songs for the European leg, of course.

The bomb threat was at UVA's Scott Stadium in Charlottesville in 2005.
They may have skipped Keith's songs but the show wasn't short.

and while we're at it what is the longest show ever? 1975 or 6 tour I assume?

This was the second leg of the BB-tour. Mid-October. It was an outdoor stadium gig in a temparature that was below zero celcius, I believe. So they spiced up the setlist and spared the audience (and themselves), methinks smiling smiley

I've been to Chicago in March, and if it is even remotely as cold in October, this was a crazy booking.

That's been discussed before. Atlantic City '89 is one of the longest, alongside - I think - Washington '94. The 1975-76 shows were probably the lengthiest in duration on average, however. Knebworth '76 is the longest set-list, but not the lengthiest show in terms of playing-duration.

Yes, I do now remember reading the reviews here at the time. Where does the time go?

Along with the 18 song setlist in Chicago 2006, there was also the abbreviated 18 song setlist in *Vegas '16.
After the first Vegas show was canceled, Mick was still very sick and ragged from the Desert Trip shows, but the show went on which might have been a bad decision as Mick struggled.
Actual time of the concerts not sure, but my bet would be on *Vegas being shorter as it seemingly abrubtly ended leaving many scratching their heads.

Yeah, as has been discussed/whined about many times, Vegas '16 was a short-ish show.
Still clocked in at a respectable two hours and two minutes though.

What it lacked in length, it made up for in sound and spirit however.
The new arena had surprisingly great sound and Keith & Ronnie's guitars had the best sound I've heard, perhaps ever.
Was obvious the rest of the band really stepped up to help Mick out, was great to witness.

Is thread based on number of songs or length of concert?

When did the "long" shows era begin? I mean shows considerably longer than an hour? If I'm not misinformed shows in 1970 were about an hour. Since 1981 two hours seems to be the standard.

My guess would be 1975.

These private shows don't count for this imo.. not spelled out, but similar to pre-tour club shows.

Was at that show also with a side stage seat on Ronnie’s side so I was also able to see behind the stage. Mick came out during Keith’s third song and was watching him on a monitor. When Keith finished the set and went backstage Mick put his arm around his shoulders in a gesture of thanks. Was great to witness that.

On the 7th day God created The Rolling Stones

Maybe not concerts by definition, though not rehearsal or private shows either - the shortest appearances/performances by the Stones
in the modern era were the New York City press conference in 2005, and the Super Bowl in 2006 with just three songs performed at each.

Press conference:
Start Me Up
Oh No Not You Again
Brown Sugar

Super Bowl:
Start Me Up
Rough Justice
Satisfaction

I was enquiring about the length of the shows’ duration; not the number of songs. Private gigs don’t count grinning smiley

Did they play anything more than Brown Sugar on the flatbed truck in New York?

I don't think people bring stop watches to Stones concerts. You're asking a lot.
