Thirteen so far, from Twickenham 2006 to Twickenham 2019. The best was the first of the O2 shows in 2012, but Cardiff 2019 was a good one and others were memorable - the Isle of Wight 2007 was a great experience, though not the best Stones performance.

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.
What did the sound system at the 1972 show sound compared to the 2013 show.And do the bootlegs from the 1972 show capture the sound live.Does the Ladies and Gentlemen filmed concerts do justice to that tour

The best one I saw was probably Roseland in 2002.
I have seen 67 shows between 1995 and 2019.

I saw about 25 Stones shows since 182.
The best? Well, its hard to choose...
But in 1982 I saw them two times at the Festhalle in Frankfurt. The first was my favorite Stones experience. I had a seat direct above the Keith side of the stage. So I could just watch down on the stage, scream and shake my body... without pushing or any stress. I was just happy.

If I had to choose a favorite, Twickenham '18 would make the short list.
Cardiff '18 would also be right up there... fantastic show smileys with beer

I agree: it was quite a treat to hear That’s How Strong My Love Is. That was a great show and one of my favorites. I think I’ll listen to my bootleg of that one now!

Honestly, I was 15 and simply mesmerized at that ‘72 concert and didn’t take any note of the sound system. It was loud and it was fantastic, but I would imagine the sound system has improved since then. The song I remember most clearly was Rambler. It just thundered in the arena.

Oops! Yes, Twickenham and Cardiff were 2018, weren't they. Fingers crossed for another round of UK shows.

I would have to say of my 40 Stones concerts the best ones were August 8, 1975, Rich Stadium, Buffalo...99,000 fans with a stripped down stage because the show was a last minute add-on and all 3 No Security shows in Philly 1999. But, needless to say, any Stones show is 1000 times better than any other concert!

I love this question, because it's nice to read other fans' experience(s), but at the same time I "hate" it, because there were so many "best concerts" for often totally different reasons.
Okay, my score so far is 80 concerts (including Juilliard School of Arts).
It's not fair to all those other great concerts, but I pick a couple.

Amsterdam 1970, because it was my first one (after skipping Hyde Park 1969 because of obvious reasons .. BJ)
Bristol, Colston Hall 1971 ... my first concert abroad (great place, great show)
Hamburg 1973 (train ticket 5x the concert ticket), Mick waved goodbye to me personally at the end of the show)
Rotterdam 1982 (also because I had to wait 9 years for that - lived in Japan during 1975-76) where I took my wife along for her first RS concert, many followed)
London 1990 (again a huge time gap) The band in their home town, wow.
Rotterdam 1990 (I took my oldest two kids along; 2000 Light Years From Home)
New Jersey USA 1994. First concert in the USA with an old friend.
Rotterdam 1995 ... Keith walked down a small stair and posed right in from of me (3 meters) and did his part of Honky Tonk Woman for well over a minute.
Amsterdam 1998 (5 shows, but second one on my 50th birthday with family and friends!)
Fort Lauderdale 1999, I could grab Mick's legs when on the small stage (off course didn't do it)
London 1999 Shepherd Bush Empire !!! I'll roast that child alive ... in the microwave ...
Boston 2002 (Orpheum club show) "It's a shame they didn't rehearse Parachute Woman in Toronto" I told "somebody" on Saturday afternoon. What a shock when Mick announced PW on Sunday !!! Great balcony front seat too!
Utrecht (Vredenburg) 2003!!! (What is a big town near to where you live?) Invitation!!!
Berlin 2003 Zirkus Krone (magnificant show! Front of stage, sweaty, sweaty hot)
Paris 2003 Olympia (with my wife, another great club show front of stage, cool fresh air)
Denver 2005. Best front of stage seat in the house, together with Mr. Ono! (Best FOS ever!) Mick, Ronnie and ...even Keith, coming from his side, many times right in front of us. Wow.
Milan, Italy 2006. Crazy - WC soccer - Italians. Great concert (ATGB in Italian, my pleasure Mick winking smiley)
London 2012 ... 50th Anniversary TRS (with my son inside the tongue PIT, very special show ... with Bill and Mick T.!)
London 2013 ... at last Hyde Park!
Abu Dhabi 2014 ... me 50 years Stones fan ... (I would even have gone to Antarctica ... to see them)
Stockholm 2014 ... again a birthday concert (with my wife)
Raleigh NC 2015 with my wife on my birthday! (Moonlight Mile was a beauty!)
Buenos Aires 2016 La Plata. My (our) best (!!!) stadium concert ever. Incredible!
Havana 2016 ... what to say (I even later saw myself waving into the camera during Midnight Rambler on the DVD) .... sooooo many happy Cubans cool smiley
Amsterdam 2017 FOS with oldest daughter (Ronnie's pick) and son.
Arnhem 2017 ... with youngest daughter (she caught Mick's SFM thrown off T-shirt !!!)
Twickenham 2018 with my oldest daughter; last one so far, full of emotions.
2022 ... who knows ...
Thanks for your patience cool smiley
Hint for bv ... don't even try, You'll end up exausted ...

Wembley 95' definitely the best show I've seen, Keith really was on fire that day, he was at the front of the stage for most of the show pumping his guitars for all they were worth.
Seen the Stones 11 times, would have been more but I gave up on them after Cardiff Wales 06', Keith didn't move, it was hard to watch, tried again Paris 2017 it was Ok but I was too loaded to remember those shows, it was an in the moment experience and I remember enjoying the whole build up and show.

I will definitely see them again next year in the UK.

I think I caught something like 15-16 shows beginning in 1972 Toronto. First one in 72 was a blur and hardly remember it because I was so excited to see them.

From then:

8/75 Buffalo NY last show of the Tour of the Americas

1978 Some Girls tour July 4th, Buffalo
1981 Tat. You tour two shows-Syracuse, NY
1989 Steel Wheels two shows Syracuse, NY
(Two great shows that ruined my hearing for weeks; Carrier Dome worst place to hear a concert but the Stones played awesome!)

1994- Voodoo Lounge CNE stadium Canada (great show. Great setlist. Took my sister-in-law who never saw them but walked out saying it was the best concert she ever saw!)
1995- Voodoo Lounge Syracuse, NY
1997- Bridges to Bab- Buffalo, NY
1998- Bridges to Bab- Syracuse, NY
2002- Licks Philly arena show

(I would rate this as the single best show I ever saw! Couldn't find anybody to go with so I bought a single VIP ticket and went to Philly by myself. Stayed overnight in a great hotel. Stones played great. Great setlist. Got to hear Cant You Hear Me Knocking for the first time! Stones did mini-set from Let It Bleed and played Love In Vain! Chrissie Hynde and Pretenders opening act!)

2003 Licks tour Toronto

2013 Toronto (Took my 12 year son to see the Stones for a men's weekend in Toronto. Carrie Underwood guested on It's Only Rock and Roll. I thought the show was fair at best-Stones too ragged & Keith was not in best form)

2015- Buffalo NY (took my son again. Much, much better show than 2013; Great seats and stellar weather. One of the best later day Stones shows I was fortunate to witness)

I've seen them 14 times including last night's show in Atlanta. First one was in New Orleans at the Superdome in 1978. Really hard to pick a favorite as I've enjoyed each one immensely. I will say that the 2015 Nashville does stand out.

I've seen them five or six times. The one I enjoyed most was Nov. 12, 2002. I remember two songs in a row from "Exile" being played, looked it up on set list web site, and that seemed to be the right show. It was a good set list overall.

Nothing like that first time you see the Stones in person. For me, it was when I saw the first Foxboro show on the B2B tour. Was a sophomore in high school and had become a die hard fan the year before.

Can’t really say I have one favorite. I think the one I enjoyed the most was opening night of the Licks tour in Boston at the Fleet Center. And that is because I got to hear a ton of ratites I never thought I’d ever hear in a million years.

Strangely enough, for years I thought the least memorable show I saw was the first Boston show on the NS tour. I thought the stones seemed a bit on auto pilot. But hearing recordings of that night, the exact opposite was true: they were on fire.

Anyway here are the shows I’ve seen. No particular order but each show has certain performances that really stuck with me.

Foxboro, October 20, 1997
“Satisfaction”
“Gimme Shelter”
“19th Nervous Breakdown”
“Out of Control”
“Star Star”
“Little Queenie”
“Crazy Mama”
“The Last Time” (this should have been the one on NS)
“SFTD”
“Tumbling Dice”

Boston, March 22, 1999
“Jumpin’ Jack Flash”
“Bitch”
“You Got Me Rocking”
“Respectable”
“Memory Motel”
“Saint of Me”
“Some Girls”
“Paint it Black”
“You Got the Silver”
“Before They Make Me Run”
“Route 66”
“When The Whip Comes Down”
“Midnight Rambler”



Boston, September 3, 2002
“Street Fighting Man” (man that was a great moment and performance!)
“Stray Cat Blues”
“Wild Horses”
“Loving Cup”
“Rocks Off”
“Rip This Joint”
“Slipping Away”
“Happy” (hell yeah!)
“Love Train” (great!)
“Satisfaction” (killer!!)
“Can’t You Hear Me Knocking”
“Mannish Boy”
“Neighbors” (lost it when they played this never thought I’d hear it!)
“Brown Sugar”
“Jumpin Jack Flash”

Boston, August 23, 2005
“It’s Only Rock and Roll” (to this day, single greatest version ever)
“Out of Control”
“The Worst”
“Infamy”
“You Got Me Rocking”
“Beast of Burden”
“Sympathy For the Devil”
“Rough Justice”
“She’s So Cold”
“Start Me Up”
“Tumbling Dice”
“Back of My Hand”


Boston, June 12, 2013
“Get Off Of My Cloud”
“Emotional Rescue”
“Sway” (with Mick Taylor)
“Midnight Rambler” (with Mick Taylor)
“Miss You”
“You Can’t Always Get What You Want”
“Gimme Sheter”
“I’m Going Down” (w Gary Clark Jr)
“You Got the Silver” (Keith: “Boston strong!”)
“Tumbling Dice”

Foxboro, July 7 2019
“Sympathy For The Devil”
“You Can’t Always Get What You Want”
“Midnight Ramber” (Keith replayed the intro, but so what it was human and great)
“Slipping Away” (I thought it was beautiful)
“Honky Tonk Women”
“Dead Flowers”
“Miss You”
“Ride ‘Em On Down”
“Paint it Black”

Enmore Theatre Licks show 2003. Sat one bum cheek on stage the entire Stones show. Hair tousled by Keith. Touched Jaggers shoe (got the look of “do that again and you’re out of here” - fair enough!)

Keith, on one knee 2 feet in front of me playing the opening to Tumbling Dice one handed, other hand in air, said to me “how f*****g easy if this?”.

A GREAT Show that started with Midnight Rambler.

An experience Never to be bettered.

Being in Australia, only seen them 15 times. They’re all great shows.

First show with the (still) wife at Perths WACA in 1973.

Since 72 I've seen them in LA area the most, but also San Diego, SF, Toronto, Philly, and London. About 35 times.

'89 LA Coliseum (x2) was best. Shocking stage, SMU explosion, very long set
'18 London - bucket list item. SFM opener with "London" in lyrics was a dream
'75 Forum (x2). Also long set list. But also biggest disappointment ever w soul'd up Get Off My Cloud, which sucked.
'05 SD tour opener..
'12 London also tour opener, with I Wanna Be Your Man rocked up.

Too many others were great including '05 Hollywood Bowl
