where you won´t find them, most probably, because I don´t think they will stay in Frankfurt because all traffic will be blocked tomorrow due to the stupid marathon thing which includes the streets around all the expensice hotels in the city.
Most rock bands don´t stay in the city while they´re here, since there are so many luxurious hotels in the area around Frankfurt within a 10-15 minutes drive.
I hope this doesn´t contradict the "no hotels info" policy!!! It´s just to let people know before they look for them in downtown ffm and then are disappointed because they´re not here...
Fellow Stones-maniacs, I'm in Frankfurt and yesterday I was at the 'posh nightclub' where Jagger was spotted. It is a lovely old building directly near the Old Opera [Alte Oper] and I am a member of this club. It is called King Kamehameha Suite. I had business meetings there during the day. In the evening/night it transforms from Men's Club/Chill Lounge/Bistro to a nightclub. But who the hell wants to gawk and intrude...? Not me. I'll see him at the show tomorow...let him enjoy his time.
The Stones are staying at a beautiful Hotel/Resort 10 minutes out of town [and with easy access to the Arena without having to go through the center of town]. Respecting BV's dictum I will not post the name. Security will surely be tight and why pester the fellows before the show? They are NOT in the city center of Frankfurt...so NO need to waste time looking through city hotels, for those who are so inclined.
I was also sent offers for free tickets to the show from eventim...nice...after I paid nearly 200 euros each for 4 tickets. Well done, Mr. Cohl.
If anybody wants to meet at the Kingka Suite late this evening...then post here...I'll be happy to meet anybody there and have a late night/early morning start to the festivities for tomorrow.
A funny thing is Aerosmith are staying in the same place where the Stones are staying. (Please don't ask for details.) Sounds like a wild party. Hope Ronnie and Keith don't get too pissed tonight with Aerosmith after the Bostonians return from their gig in Karslruhe. We want Keith and Ronnie in good condition tomorrow, don't we?
Just arrived and tried some local cuisine (spell) - one of the local kebabs. Here's a good one I found regarding weather. At the moment it looks sunny from 18.00 [de.weather.com]
Shorts weather so far, hope it will last. When I checked the livecam now around 21.15 CET it was light check. Got to work a bit tonight, tons of friends coming in tomorrow. See ya all. And Chuck...She Was Hot (please with sugar...)
Personally I like to waste money one time (or may be two) during a tour staying at the "Stones" hotel. If you know a lot of people then you get to meet a lot of people. May be for the first show or the last show of the tour. Kind of kick-off or kiss-goodbye stay if you see what I mean. But there is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to stay at the Stones hotel and spend 100's of dollars or Euro if you want to "stalk" i.e. see band members. They hardly move outside of their rooms, and if they do, they do not "mingle" in the bar. I have been to many, I mean many shows and tours and hotels, but I do rarely (almost never across the world) see them in the bar.
Enjoy the show, stay outside the hotels for free if you can and want, but please do not waste your money unless you can afford to spend it, checking in at five star hotels, because unless you think it is great to be among fans, paying a few hundred dollars/euro per night, it really isn't worth it. PS. Breakfast at these hotels do cost more than I pay for the stay per night at "my" hotels...
