Two years ago today I was at Boston attending the opening night of the ABB tour. I've seen twelve shows this tour with Slane being my last.

Thanks guys for a fanastic tour and a lot great music.

15 shows total. The best moment was SFTD at Radio City, the most amazing thing I've ever seen. After that Beacon 2 ranks up there as an amazing show. In all, every show was awesome. LONG LIVE THE STONES.

Yeah I was there too!!! It was a Sunday if memory serves and very hot out (my car's a/c was broken at the time, so I remember that well).

I had $450 tickets given to me by a friend. It's boring sitting in the 'exec" section though, like sleeping with a corpse.

Yeah, it was hot as hell that day. We took the Boston duck tour to cool off.

Ah, what a day that was...

Yeah - it was Electric being in Boston that day! I'll never ever get over looking up and seeing Mick on the B stage with the Prudential Tower right behind him. So freaking cool!

Yes, I agree about that Radio City show! I have seen 36 Stones shows in all and that was in my top 4, no doubt! There was magic in the air that night!

Two years ago The Rolling Stones were playing 4 new songs from a yet-to-be released album...It was very nice to have all those songs sound fresh live.

Just two for me:

Houston, Dec. '05
Boise, Idaho, Nov. '06

Both were great, but I preferred Boise, perhaps because I was FOS at a small venue.

Amen brother...I was also at the Fenway show. Let's hope they make another quick trip to the States in 08....you can never get enough of the Stones.

Tonight's show Mick commented that it was two years ago the ABB tour started and they never expected it to carry on this long.

I think that was arounf the time they had just f%^&ed up the ending to Rocks Off and MJ joked that he also wondered how that [song] would ever end. Funny!
