Review by Daniel Gessner, Munich

It was my very first Rolling Stones concert and it blew me away! Bloody awesome! Unlike in the Olympiahalle they only concentrated on the big ones, which was a very wise decision in my opinion. My personal highlight was "Sympathy For The Devil". I was very surprised that they played it :-) Other highlights were "Start Me Up", "Wild Horses", "You Can't Always Get What You Want", a furious "Midnight Rambler" and a even more furious "Street Fighting Man". The "lowlights" - though they really can't be called lowlights - for me were the Keith songs "Happy" and especially "Slipping Away". I really didn't miss any big Stones song, though I would've liked to hear one of my favourites, "Beast Of Burden".

All in all a great great night and probably one of the last chances (I don't think it's their last tour yet ;-) ) to see the Stones live in Munich.


Review by Peter Wenzel, Zurich, Switzerland

Well, the second Stones night in Europe and a perfect hot summer night in the wonderful Munich Olympic Stadium made the day and the evening itself a pleasure. But what we've got from the stage was awful and not worth a single penny. Maybe the Boys played well - I thought "Midnight Rambler", "Street Fighting Man", and "You Can't Always Get What You Want" must have been really good, but the sound was a big mess. Being at the most expensive seats at the grandstand, there was a muddy and rubbish sound. Even the 1982-shows sounded much better in the audience. I couldn't imagine why people around me were screaming and clapping hands. You can only remember most of the songs by the refrain. Shit sound.


Review by Stefano Garibbo, Italy

IT'S SATURDAY AND I'M JUST COME BACK FROM THE CONCERT. I'M FROM ITALY AND I DROVE 500 KM ON MY MOTORCYCLE WITH A FRIEND TO SEE THE GUYS .... AND IT WAS A PERFECT IDEA BECAUSE I HEARED THE STONES AS NEVER BEEN BEFORE ( IT'S MY 3th TIME). THEY PLAYED VERY STRONG. I LIKE THE VERSION OF BITCH WITH IT'S NEVER ENDING RIFF LOOP, AND FOR THE FIRST TIME I HEAR "YOU CAN'T ALWAYS.." THAT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES, JUST AFTER WILD HORSES. OLYMPIA STADIUM IS A PERFECT PLACE FOR CONCERT. THE SOUND WAS PERFECT AND THE AMBIENCE WAS VERY RELAXED. AND WHAT I HAVE TO TELL ABOUT ROCKS OFF...... SIMPLY A GREAT SONG FROM THE GREATEST ALBUM. IF I HAVE TO REPROACH SOMETHING IS ONLY THE INTRODUCTION IT WASN'T EXPLOSIVE LIKE THE OTHER TOURS.

I'M SORRY FOR PETER BUT I HEAR VERY GOOD. IT DEPENDS THAT I WAS ON THE TRIBUNE I DONT'KNOW.


Review by Chris Tresper

Me and my buddies from the States had great seats for yesterday's show at the Olympic Stadium here in Munich. Right next to the stage on Keith's side we witnessed a great stadium show with good sound (from where we sat) and an awesome crowd which even went wild for the "new" song Don't Stop. I was especially pleased with the B stage song selection because they did Little Red Rooster, which I hadn't heard live before. Mick was wearing cool sunglasses when the boys came on stage at 8:45pm. The only one who keeps disappointing me on this tour is Keith. His playing seems to be worse than on previous tours while Ronnie's playing has increased by 100 percent. Still, they are the greatest and even though it might not be as thrilling for me anymore as it once was I still enjoy every show and in the end I always know why I went there. Alright .... got my wristband and my ticket ... Cirkus Krone tomorrow .... am really hoping for Lady Jane and She Was Hot. To be continued...


Review by Lutz Buechner, Ruesselsheim, Germany

They are really the greatest band on earth ... it was one of the most amazing shows I've ever seen in the last 25 years ... no, it really was the most amazing show I've ever seen. I think there will be only one show that might be more astonishing and breathtaking and rocking ... on July 27th .. :-))). But what made that Munich stadium show so amazing ?

First of all the band ... there they are, alive and rocking ... they gave us that special feeling "to be a part of them", seen with the eyes of a fan of course, a fan who is "living with the Stones" for about 28 years. Standing in-between 60.000 other fans having the feeling to be one big family - it's just great. Pure emotions.

Second is the set-list (see above) ... my personal favorite of that show was that breathtaking rocking thunderbolt hammer GIMME SHELTER ... what a gift. Then comes HONKY TONK WOMAN accompanied with that video on the screens above the stage (guys and girrrls, watch out for that special video, you'll love it ...). The songs on the B-Stage were also very good, but the best thing was that the B-Stage was placed near the center of the Olympic Stadium, so everybody in the center could see the Stones quite close, in addition they didn't use any light effects (only white spotlight), what made that part of the show look like they very heading back for 1965. IT'S ONLY ROCK'N'ROLL made us crazy, but MIDNIGHT RAMBLER was my personal favorite of that part. SATISFACTION made the audience explode, and there was no time to calm down when we all got the encore - JUMPIN' JACK FLASH. The show ended with "good-bye" and then the Stones surprised us with a big firework, up above in the Munich sky.

As we were watching the show from the center field, there was no " sound pollution". It was a clear and loud sound, and due to the big video screens above the stage, it was no problem to see the Stones, even if sometimes beautiful ladies sat on their boyfriends' shoulder ... :-)).

The last thing what made that show so unique was the amazing, good rocking, peaceful and happy Munich audience with all the nice guys and beautiful girls and women under that sky with a golden half moon ... even Mick noticed that and said in german "Ihr seid ein geiles Publikum ..." (Translation: You are a bad nasty audience ...).

Thanks, Mick ! Thanks Munich ! Thank you Rolling Stones !

See you again on July, 27th ... and hopefully in the next years, too.
