Yes, I was there !

Awesome little venue, great setlist.
I remember there were professional movie cameras (not video) in the venue. They shot 3 songs during the concert as they did at the Ahoy. Sadly none of this footage ever surfaced yet...
I also remember a very approximative start of Brown Sugar.

I was there.
One of the lastest concert goer to get in..
The security was incredibly tough.
I had to run through a line of bouncers, maybe 5 or 6, each of them checking the ticket and the plastic strap "Lucky Me". It was a long process, birfucating trough various corridors... Reminded me the restaurant scene in Goodfellas.

As for the show, fabulous... Special mention to "How Strong My Love IS"
I ranked it n°2 among the five theater shows I saw during this tour (Philadelphia, Stockholm, Utretcht, Paris, London)

I was there and I thought it was a pity, that they played big hits as well.
It would have been a nice occasion to play e.g. Lady Jane, or more songs that they hardly ever play, instead of JJF etc.

One big advantage : there were no lines to get a beersmileys with beer

That was the last show where I experienced written lists of people waiting on site for tickets, starting lining up the day before. Could not reach Krone, but was best theater venue concerning acoustics. Liked it very much, also the combination with the ahoy on the day before, was it?

the greatest rock and roll band in the world - definitely

I was there - front and center with my friend Ed (aka "Littleredrooster").
We waited in line throughout the day at the front of entrance, traded off giving each other breaks, mingled with hundreds of fans, eating dutch pancakes, and then the doors eventually opened.
Escorted in to the lobby area in small groups, was told to sit and wait in first entry room. We were then lectured about cameras, etc. and then were set free to make our way in to the venue.
I knew some friends who had VIP's early entry, and they opted for the seats/risers just off the back of the floor. Could not believe seeing the mini catrwalk w/out anyone near it yet - a few were on Keith side.
We made the mad dash and hunkered down...dead center...it was all like a dream...turned out to be the best theater/club show I saw that tour w/Stockholm Cirkus a close second, followed by London Astoria...
In fact it always ranks near the top of all shows I've ever seen by any band- right up there with the first couple of Stones shows I saw in 1981, as well as the glorious Mick Taylor shows in 2013.

Full setlist:

Jumping Jack Flash
Live With Me
Hand Of Fate
No Expectations
Worried About You
Saint Of Me
It's Only Rock'n Roll
Dance
Everybody Needs Somebody To Love
That's How Strong My Love Is
Going To A Go Go
Thief In The Night (Keith)
Happy (Keith)
I Can't Turn You Loose
Can't You Hear Me Knocking
Start Me Up
Tumbling Dice
Brown Sugar
Satisfaction (encore)

just checked out the setlist, pretty cool to see so many songs I haven't seen listed on more recent setlists lol.. Was that the norm for that tour?

Well, it sort of was - but only for theatre shows. In select cities, they played shows at 3 venues of a different size: a stadium, an indoor arena and a theatre. And the setlists varied according to the size of the venue, too.

I think the Licks tour as a whole is the one where they had the most diversity in their setlists. The theatre shows included some rarities that were only played that one time, including "She Smiled Sweetly" at the Roseland Ballroom in NY and "Parachute Woman" at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston.

Here's the breakdown from setlist.fm:

I was there. It was the last concert of four shows I attended in one week. Two times the kuip (stadium shows), one concert in Ahoy (Arena show) and Vredenburg (club show). This was the best week of Rolling Stones shows of my life.

What you saw is the regular video capture of the show, like each stones concert on the "recent" tours. The cameras I was talking about were real movie cameras and they only filmed 3 songs during the whole show.

Great to remember those days


Luckily I started with the list, and it worked out quite well.
Still got the list with the first 84 names.



All the Best!

Great experience! Even more so because my effort to get entree tickets for 14 people who went to China that year in vain (no Stones concert in Beijing due to SARS) was rewarded! They only had to show their passports with China visum in it at "the hotel" winking smiley

Although all clubs shows were almost equally exiting, Vredenburg is nr.3 on my list following Orpheum (Boston) and Zirkus Krone (Munich).

I remember Keith lighting up a huge joint and blowing out a big cloud of smoke (in front of the no smoking sign) while playing the intro of IORR. Classic.
Forever grateful to my friend Cees for getting us tickets.

I was there up front center, slightly towards Ronnie. I met Mr. Matt Lee there (I think it was you...it was a long time ago). He told me he was out having dinner the night before and Ronnie came into the restaurant...and asked if he could join him (Matt). It seems this may have been the first time they had a dinner together. Matt told me Ronnie promised him he would give Matt a guitar pick at the show...and sure enough...he did.

That show was soooooo damn good and Jagger on Worried About You was really special. Frankly, a lot about those Netherlands shows were special...

It was at Ahoy I ended up being a part of the Four Flicks Best Buy commercial...good times.

The lining up was strange as I recall. I remember many of us lined up at one entrance only to be told we had to line up at a different entrance. There were maybe 2 guy at the front with an inflatable bed or something (and a few people behind them)...many of us were put out that we had lined up earlier but were now a bit further back.

I was still within the first 30 in line and ended up front/center...but it was disappointing at the time.

Definitely a great week of Stones shows.
I was also at all those shows you mention, as well as the Amsterdam Arena show on the 19th - would have been at the second Amsterdam Arena show, but it was postponed due to Mick having throat issues.
After seeing five shows in a short eight day period (!), I rolled with the punches, and happily accepted a refund as it would have been impossible for me to attend the rescheduled show the following month.
So many great memories of all of those shows in the Netherlands, and then it was off to London for more adventures with the Rolling Stones...including a Mick Taylor solo show...

Here's a pic of the ticket and wristbands posted on the IORR Vredenburg show page, along with quite a few reviews - Vredenburg

I was fortunate to interview one of the attendees, who had written down many details of his Vredenburg show experience,
which I included in my book "You Get What You Need: Stories of Fans of the Rolling Stones" (2014):

I was at the show in Vredenburg with friends.

I talked with BV before the show. He wasn't happy the Vredenburg concert t-shirts were in Norway's color blue. A friend from Holland wasn't happy because the Holland shirts should have been in Holland's orange color.



For me, an American, I thought the blue was the perfect color for the Van Gogh Stones tongue.

Keith loved the venue and wanted to fold up the room and put it in his suitcase or something like that quote.

I could not believe they played Go-Go.

I have this shirt (image via google), as well as the exclusive Utrecht/Van Gogh shirt in a storage bin in storage, and thought for sure there might have been a full on orange version...
Can't find any google images of it, but some day will dig deep through the archives filled with merch and memories...
