Just an observation, but seeing as there haven't been any reports on the Seattle show, at which motley Crue opened for the Stones - can we assume that all the moaners and bitchers about them opening for the Stones didn't even go to this show?
I'd be quite interested to see how they did and what they played. Of course i'm sure they didn't blow the Stones off stage - like AC/DC did, but Im curious what they were like.
Actually I do not know what they played. As it was so loud and yummy I could not differenciate any song than just pure noise. The arena was only about a third filled when they started to play. And actually after ten minutes we went out. Some third class ladies were dancing in one song I think it was the 2nd if they even changed the rhythm. Anyway they should open maximum for blue oyster cult, but I don't think for the Stones. As for tonite we will rather stay at the Voodoo Lounge, a bar in Portland, and then going to our seats just before the show.
I was one of the many who did not bother to show up until well after Motley Crue had started their set at about 7:30.
When we got to the Key Arena about 8:15, there were a few hundred people milling about outside. They seemed to be in no hurry to get in and were waiting for the Stones set.
Inside the arena the lineups for the merchandising were extremely long. It took me about 40 minutes to get to the front of the line and buy an event shirt (the 1st arena show to have one!!). There were still many people behind me who would miss the beginning of the Stones set.
Which goes to say that there must have been an incredible amount of empty seats for the Motley Crue set.

Done that. Also saw them with good opening acts too so I could enjoy myself for 3 hours or so rather than skulk in the lobby.

If I am going to spend $100-450 for tickets, I would like to enjoy myself an extra hour if there is a decent opening band rather than whine over numerous threads about how I don't like the opening act. And I dont need any second party validation, if there are empty seats, its more room to move and have fun.
