Boston - pic of the crew checking out before dawn

Here are some pics of the Stones crew buses in Boston. There were like 40-or-so roadies staying in the same hotel I booked. Not a bad hotel, the Hyatt Regency in the financial district. I had for a very good bargain at $90 a night, tax included.
The brand of the buses is "Le Mirage XL II".
The buses bear on their side this motto "The road is forever and the party never ends".
Some pics were taken in the midday on Saturday, the other at 6 AM on Sunday with the snow. The crew was checking out to go to the Banknorth Garden, very early in the morning, to rebuild the stage which had been taken off Friday night after the show because of another event on Saturday. It was a bit unrealistic to watch all these guys in Stones clothes with big Stones bags checking out before dawn. "It is a good job", said one of them, when asked on how it feels to be on the road.
I was also lucky to have the Sunday nigh list, a gift from the sound engineer – as you can see, there was no soundcheck.
As for the shows, they were brilliant, better the previous ones I attended in Philadelphia in October. My only negative comment concern Sympathy for the Devil. It has turned into an empty song, it is a pity there is no more rhythmic guitar – the only attempt being RW at the end of KR solo. They should reshape it

Steel Wheels Tour would be a more fitting name,
judging from the buses.

"What a beautiful buuuus... "

About the setlist, I think I underdstand everything, except the *, ** , ***, - what does it mean, and why sometimes one * and other times two or three *** ?

My first attempt to post a pic, thanks open-G

This boy on the right, does he have a broken right hand ? An he is at work ! It is a hell of job to be a roadie for the Stones. Modern slavery. (joking)

Good to see that happy is played in the original key of B again. On the Licks tour it was done in A, didn't like that.

I've always asked my self why on earth they need the key of the tracks on the set list: they have been playing more or less the same songs for over 40 years by now. I got my answer when I listened to IORR at MSG concert of september 05 ... now I know they should print it LARGER!!!

I bet I am not the only one who would love to see "KR" printed on the TEMPO column...

I would also like to know what these wildcards stand for*

maybe
* = with caffeine
** = with herb
*** = with coke

Regarding the first post on this thread about the line on the buses, "The Road Goes on Forever and the Party Never Ends" is a Robert Earl King song also covered well by Joe Ely...
