Best : Olympia 1995. A dream that came true to see them play in a theater.

Parc des princes, Paris 1990, Bercy 2003 and U Arena 3rd were great too for the setlists and playing.


I saw 8 concerts between 1982 and 2017.

I have been very fortunate to see some great stones shows in some amazing cities around the world but for me it is like chasing the dragon I will never be able to replicate that first time of seeing Mick Jagger and Keith Richards ten feet in front of me on stage.

I think it's been 10 shows for me, starting in 1989 and counting the one where I had to stand outside th stadium to listen (ticket snafu).

I think the best one was probably Bridges To Babylon in Atlanta. I have gone memories of that show.

I feel lucky I got to see them in the 70s, 1978, in Cleveland. It was a different feeling, like gods appearing in front of you. The nasty, funky Stones with Keith's greenish heroin related pallor.

Los Angeles 1989 was like the coronation of their greatness. If they would have retired after the 1990 tour, I think it would have been appropriate.

1999 Anaheim was special. Charlie was on. So was Keith. It would never be the same after that.

2013 was my last Stones concert. I saw Mick Taylor. It wasn't going to get any better. It simply can't.

I could probably name at least 50 as "best", but here are a few off the top of my head...

- 1981 L.A. Coliseum - both shows, first time seeing the Stones.

- Wembley Arena, 2003

- Vredenburg, 2003

- Hollywood Bowl x 2, 2005

- Staples Center 2013 w/Mick Taylor, show #2

- Rose Bowl, 2019

And dozens of other great ones including the recent two in L.A. for a total of 64.

20 shows so far, beginning in 1989. Best show, without a doubt, was the Roseland Ballroom in 2002. That one was absolutely incredible.

I have seen The Rolling Stones 21 times. Hard to narrow it down. All of them were amazing and special but I will try. My first time seeing them up close was Buffalo July 11, 2015 (5th row from stage, Ronnie's side), Philadelphia June 21, 2013 I was just at the end of tongue stage on the rail. Philadelphia July 23, 2019, I was in Pit 2 right at the rail. I am kind of short, so I could only see my side of stage and a little bit of center. I couldn't even see Charlie! I won a contest to see them in Moncton, New Brunswick Sept 3, 2005. That was a great show. Can't forget my very first show in Foxboro, MA Oct 20, 1997. That was the show that made me a super huge fan!!

Rotterdam 1973
The Hague 1976

1973 by a long shot due to -to me- obvious reasons.

Hyde Park 2013,2nd show. Great atmosphere and our first show after a a long, long time. Around 2010/2011 I never expected to see them live again, so I was quite overwhelmed.

My very first Stones show in Gelsenkirchen in 1991 is still very special to me, I can still feel the excitement I felt back then.
Regarding the overall experience, my favorite Show is Hyde Park, Jul 13th,2013.

Number of shows: Maybe 15-20, never counted.

Impossible to pick just one!

First ever was very special and got me totally hooked: Philadelphia Spectrum July 21, 1972.

First time up close, small theater show, amazing set list: Stockholm Cirkus, July 22, 2003.

Front row center of Tongue Pit with some great friends: Anaheim, Honda Center, May 15, 2013.

60 Stones concerts. I’d say 5 were good and 55 were great. In looking at my list, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the Stones in so many cities in the States and in other countries. I had forgotten some of the crazy places I traveled to like the Hartford Civic Center October 5, 2002. That was an old venue and I remember driving up there and wanting to grab food and the only thing they had for sale was really small hotdogs. Worst stadium/arena food ever.

Seen them 40 times now in several countries and numerous US states - starting in ‘81, and Charlotte a few weeks ago the most recent.
The best though was the Boston Orpheum on the Licks tour - small theatre, great set list (Hand of Fate, Parachute Woman (!), Dance Part 1…) and the best Can’t You Hear Me Knocking.
