I added "in the past" to the subject line, to avoid any misunderstandings.

Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA, Feb. 6, 2003
The free NRDC concert

Highlight - being on the rail of the B-stage right in front of Keith when they played Midnight Rambler.
Low point - Bill Clinton speech.

Juilliard School of Arts, May 10 2005. A mini concert, just before the press conference, but still. Standing within the Press "venue" (like bv), I could see a couple thousand people watching outside around the pool and on the roofs of surrounding buildings. Strange, but unique cool smiley

There was a similar free gig back in 1975, although only one song was played... (of which we should thank Charlie).winking smiley

Makes me sad watching this . I so want to turn the clock back and go back in time and experience the Rolling Stones all over again with a twist and a few wrinkles . For me it is so hard to hear the music and not feel the loss in so many different ways and layers .

I had won free tix to that show, but would have had to fly out from NY. At the time, I wouldn't have dreamed of it. Looking back, I don't know how I didn't.

I don't think any of those shows had free entrance.
