Review by John Sweeney, Balloch

The first time I saw the Stones was in Glasgow in the Mid Sixties with them that night were Ike & Tina Turner and the Yardbirds, I have seen them each time they have come back to the city though the last time was some years back. If someone had told me at that first show that almost 40 years later I would again be watching them live accompanied by my 21 year old son I would have suspected that they had indulged too much in the rather unusual substance which we had just discovered made your cigarettes more exciting. But that was the case last night as I took my 21 year old to see his first Stones concert - he came away as captivated as I was all those years ago - I know that a lot of the reviews on this site go into technical detail perhaps about Keith or Ronnie missing a particular chord, well I am not that musically aware all I know is that the Band gave us a rocking night which we both thought was great. For me Satisfaction, HTW and Brown Sugar were the highlights but every number was a foot stompin' hand clappin' bit of pure magic for me with only two regrets .. that they never played Angie or YCAGWYW but then again we got what we needed. One point I enjoyed - I spent some time watching the crowd before the show started and I thought it was great the age span was over the whole spectrum from children obviously still of school age to old wrinklies like me. Perhaps that was The Last time I shall ever see my favourite band live but if it is then all I know is that I still got the same buzz now as I did when I heard them perform Route66, Not Fade Away. Walkin' The Dog etc. so many years ago. Thank you Mick, Keith, Charlie, Ronnie, Bill, Brian, Mick T, Ian and all the guys who played on stage with you through my years of watching you...... one last time would be great though.


Review by Steven Kelly

I thought that the Stones had excelled themselves at Wembley last week, but now I believe that they must be hitting top form everywhere they go now. Another fantastic set in front of a typical Glasgow crowd, singing and shouting, not to mention the beer that was being thrown everywhere.

After the usual start of ,"Street Fighting Man", "Start Me Up" and "You Got Me Rockin", Mick told the crowd, "The Scottish are famous for drinking and singing", and we didn't let him down when prompted to sing along to "Don't Stop". A rocking "Live With Me" followed, before a fantastic cover of Otis Reading's "That's How Strong My Love Is" which again the Stones made their own. Then a kind of bluesy feeling "Miss You", with the crowd joining in again,"Paint it Black" and "Tumbling Dice".

On to the introductions with Ronnie taking as much of the limelight as possible. When it came to Keith he announced, "I'm going to do something a bit different tonight" before leading the crowd off to sing the traditional Scottish song, "You take the High Road, and I'll take the Low Road....". "You could sell tickets for that" he said, "Anyway, I've got a show to do". And he did, with "Slipping Away" and a fantastic "Before They Make Me Run". "Sympathy for the Devil" followed, with the now emphatic crowd "Whoo Whooing" all the way through. A stunning "Midnight Rambler" preceded the crowds favourite "Honky Tonk Woman" and "Satisfaction". Then up to the B-Stage where I was standing, in the middle, looking straight down the catwalk. I couldn't have been any closer. It was like having the band playing in your front room. During "IORR", Ronnie seen my girlfriend screaming at them, he pointed at her and screamed back.

By this time I hardly even noticed the music, I was too busy trying to follow the band around the stage and see what was going on. This is a great place to stand and I would recomend it to anyone who gets the chance. When the band left stage after "Jumping Jack Flash" the crowd were still going nuts, screaming and shouting for more. But alas, the stones were probably already half way to their hotel by this time. I've really enjoyed my "Stones experience" of the last week and it's something I'll always remember. When I'm old and my grandchildren ask me "Do you remember Rock'n Roll?", I'll be able to think back to this past week and say "I remember Rock'n Roll, and I liked it".
