I would agree with BFR as well. I too was at both shows.

The old dome does have a different feel.

The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis felt like an arena to me, especially when compared to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, but I suppose by technical standards it is a stadium. Hard Rock was a theatre, a completely different type of venue, seating ~7,000.

St. Louis dome has 67.000 seats for NFL Games while Mercedes Benz Stadium got 71.000. that's not a big difference.

I know the seating capacity isn't much different, but I was at both shows and that's why I said "felt" like an arena because The Dome very much reminds me of the old NHL arenas and it felt dark inside while Mercedes-Benz has a huge multi-level concourse, is mostly windows on one side and has a retractable roof. It seemed like you walked right from the street level to the floor seats at The Dome. You have to wind down to a sub-terranean level to get to the floor of M-B.

I have to agree with BFR on this one. I'm from Michigan & St Louis "felt" like an arena where Mercedes Benz actually felt like a stadium. I know exactly where BFR was comimg from. -smiling smiley

Agree, St Louis definitely had an arena feel.

Yeah, you know, while it holds a lot more people, it really didn't seem a heck of a lot bigger than the United Center in Chicago (where they played in 2013 and where the NHL Blackhawks play).

We don’t know what Mick will decide concerning 2023, hopefully tour somewhere but not Europe again I really doubt it. I really doubt a residency as it’s not their style , god hope not. Lots fans elsewhere will be left out. They will be 80 then so we will see, time is not on their side unfortunately. Time will tell, also their health has to be considered, I’m very grateful to have seen them 20 times.

It's funny when you stop to think and put it in context. It really is astounding. How many marriages last 60 years? Friendships? Considering where the relationship was with Mick and Keith in the late 70s thru the late 80s who could have imagined? And outside of that think about the people in your lives that are in their age bracket. Can you possibly imagine any of them doing what these guys are doing? I know there are examples of musicians performing in their 80s (Buddy Guy, Chuck Berry Jerry Lee Lewis, etc) but with the exception of McCartney none of them do it on this scale. I remember thinking in 97/98 This has to be it. And here they are. Yes minus the irreplaceable Charlie but still standing, still delivering. There will never be anyone compatible. I hope they go as long as they want and are able.

Very well said. It's nothing short of amazing what they've accomplished and continue to accomplish. We're all lucky to be able to be witness to the greatness.

It's where the NFL Rams played for almost 20 years so it's a stadium.

And interestingly enough the only venue I've seen them twice in thru 12 shows on every US tour since '81.

Sorry.

There's only one "The Dome" and it's the Superdome.

As in the Louisiana Superdome. In New Orleans.

Whatever the name is with it has zero meaning - similar to Pine Knob or the Sears Tower.

When it comes to domes it was The Astrodome and besides the Superdome lets not forget the domes that have left us. The King Dome and the Hump Dome (Hubert Humphrey Metrodome)

Also was telling some folks last night about Pine Knob. Don't try and bring marshmallows in. Same classification as weapons and bottles.

I think they should do something along the lines of Unzipped or Fonda. Play a few warhorses in a small venue, but really mix in some rarities. Although I'm not fond of most of their post Wyman work, I did like the Fonda gig. Compactness really works with this group.

The L.A. Forum and Madison Square Garden - some of their best shows ever have been performed in these sacred arenas, and would be an appropriate way to wrap it up with ten shows at each.
And as a grand finale for the ages, two or three nights at the Hollywood Bowl - the shows there in 2005 were exceptional partially due to the rest of the ABB tour being in large arenas and stadiums.
It would be like the Waldbühne Berlin show of the SIXTY tour...the last show being the best show, and the actual layout and capacity of the two venues are quite similar..

OK.

For the record, to my knowledge, anywhere in the Deep South and below the Deep South, when people say "the Dome" they know what it means. Because there is only one "the Dome".

It's in New Orleans!

I saw the Stones in the Kingdome 1997 and the Tacoma Dome 2002. Both fun shows but not ideal places to see a band.

Everybody does not live in the deep south. There are Tokyo Dome and many other Domes in the world.

Many domes have come and gone in North America. In Canada, Saddledome in Calgary is still here and Rogers Centre in Toronto, which I will always refer to as the Skydome. Metrodome in Minneapolis, RCA Dome in Indianapolis, Silverdome in Pontiac (Detroit), Carrierdome in Syracuse, Alamodome in San Antonio and even the old Checkerdome in St. Louis.
