How many times have you seen the Stones ?

Who here has the most Stones shows under their belt and which one was your fav.

I've only seen them once.

November 1994 in San Antonio Tx.

I will never forget it.

I'm sure top honors on this site go to Bjornulf.

I'm at 27 shows so far:

1981: Seattle night 2

1994: Pasadena night 1

1997: Los Angeles both nights, Seattle

1998: San Diego, Houston both nights, Tokyo night 1

1999: Anaheim both nights, Las Vegas, London Wembley night 1, Cologne

2002: Los Angeles Staples, Anaheim, San Diego

2003: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Rotterdam Feyenoord night 2 & Ahoy, Utrecht

2005: Anaheim, Los Angeles both nights

2006: Rio De Janeiro, Inglewood

I hope to add a few more this fall

I also saw Keith Richards and the X Pensive Winos in 1993 in Universal City

Any real Stones fan has been at least 800 times.That's what it takes to hear live performances of 80 different songs.

Correct. Such is my rationale...

Enough (for me).... from 1969 t0 1999 - 30 years. Every American Tour (usually 2 shows per tour) including the Earthquake Benefit show at the LA Forum in January 1973 - great set list, better then 1972 tour.

Favorites: 1969 was magical, PURE rock and roll - Stones first Peak. Last time Jagger was 100% Jagger. From 1972 on he's very slowly started becoming a parody of himself (even though he went back to being very natural in 1975).

1975 was Jagger being very loose and a total clown, great entertainment, great set list, great stage, great outfits. SYMPATHY back for the first time since '69. Stones at their 3rd peak - 1972 was their second peak)

Even though his hair cut was way too short and his moves were way too planned, 1989 was great for it's all inclusive set list and the beginning of the giant stage era.

1999 No Security Tour was great since it was stripped down and the focus was back on the music. Very bold set list with plenty of never played new-old ones MOONLIGHT MILE, SOME GIRLS, SHINE A LIGHT,YOU GOT THE SILVER... back from the past gems PAINT IT BLACK, ROUTE 66, WHIP, RESPECTABLE,IMAGINATION, MIDNIGHT RAMBLER, a few more. Kind of reminded me of 1969 in it's bare, nothing but music and stage simplicity - 30 years and full circle, Now I get the DVD's and save a ton of money and miss getting disappointed with all the cancelations/postponements....

Well, I've actually seen 106 different songs in my 27 shows, but as I like to whine about setlists, I appreciate the sarcasm.

40 Times (or 40 Licks smiling smiley between 1981 and 2006.

First time in '81 L.A. Coliseum will always be the best, with the Cirkus Stockholm '03 coming in at a very close second place.

I guess I've been picking the wrong shows - 843 shows and 80 songs. I like your ratio much better.

sorry, i didn't look into the archives.

i had the feeling this had already been asked, but i figured what the hell.

i just started doing this IORR thing last year.

sorry if i am beating a dead horse.

i was just curious to know.

why did you even respond to this if you have already seen it so many times ?

again, just curious.

sorry to disappoint, ryanpow, but i can vouch for at least 519 of stonestod's shows.... smiling smiley

although personally, i've only seen them 22 times from ohio 1978 to baltimore 2006. a surprising majority of my 'top shows' have been from '99-'06.

how many shows do they do in one tour of the US? Like 50? Youd have to go to every freking show. Youd have to be like a dead head, but you'd be a stones-head. except that it would cost a shIt load more.

a few points:

1) i've been a member for a shorter time than you. and i can remember this thread coming up at least 3 or 4 times in the last few months.

2) you may notice that i didn't really respond.

3) no need to apologize. (although, yes, the horse is long dead)

p.s. love the Black Crowes

or maybe i have seen it but was too drunk to remember.

and yes i know, you didn't actually respond.

but you did take the time to inject some sarcasm.
