Count me in...didn't do a lot for me on the BtoB album......but it really unfolded onstage.....they should take out Miss You - love it but heard it to death - and play this as a standard instead (even if it is written by Mr. Jagger and not my hero) -
YUP - and especially if this is indeed the last time - nothing to lose.....they already got the punters in *lol* (Hey - if this IS the last time - The Mighty @#$%& Stones could possibly be playing their last gig ever in Denmark.....not likely though)

I would miss Brown Sugar ;-) But they have so many other songs.....
I don't think that OOC is one of their "best songs in recent years." I think it's one of their best ever. It should be back in the set. They need more recent material, and by that I mean 90's stuff that is popular and well-known to the audience. OOC is a perfect candidate. I was very disappointed when I didn't get it at either of my ABB shows.
From my personal experience,it went over real well in 1997,pretty well in 1999,but,in 2005 many casual fans went for refreshments during the slow beginning part,probably because they did not recognize that part of the song and thought they were in for something very low key.
I agree with Theif - I was thrilled to have OOC in two of the 2005 shows I saw. But a majority of the audience didn't seem to know the tune and the folks around me started talking or leaving, which kinda sucked the life out of one of my favorite live tunes.
I think if it was played in the show's first half, it may sell better. Last year it was played during the warhorse stretch, which apparently broke the momentum for many casual fans and perhaps disappointed them.
Bring it back but keep in mind the performance of the song is IMHO, at its best when Mick really acts out the psycho dude at the end...marching with flailing arms, pulling his shirt over his head or putting the bottom of it in his mouth and biting the hell out of it...he didn't do it really in Chicago '05...it still sounded good, but on this one I missed the over-the-top theatrics!
