Review by Juan Martinez

Even with the tech problems (The Lights weren�t right) the concert was out of this world, there are no words to describe this spectacular event, I recommend this concert to every one, even if you are not a fan of the rolling stones.

The band was awsome, even spoke in spanish some times, the reaction of the people to them was great,every single track was done perfectly... I�m still in shock with this concert, the best concert in my entire life.

Review by Ivan Alejandro Vacio H.

Well, It took more than an hour to the stones first appearance at estadio universitario in Monterrey, but people forgot it when bigger bang presentation started at the very beggining and Jumping Jack Flash opening rocked the stadium, WOWWWWWW!!! I felt Keith riffs pressing my chest like a HEART ATTACK!!!! while they make all the stadium jump up over their seats!!!. People faces said "They RockS like hell".

I was with a couple of friends, and we were waiting for any acoustic song, maybe "wild horses" or "love in vain" but Angie really shocked us. It make us call our girls, jajaja

People kept stand up during the two hour show, dancing, singing and recieving all the energy from Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie. Mick was like possesed on stage. I cant believed that I was watching these ROck Legends.

Also, People cant believe it. I confirmed this when they played "sympathy for the devil". I had to travel by plane to watch this concert, and seeing this song really worth it.

When They started to move to B stage, across the crowd while they were playing "Miss You", HELLLLL!!!! The stadium got Crazy!!! it was something out of this world.

I can resume this : Ive seen other famous bands, but I can tell they look small in front of "Their Satanic Majestic" the Stones rolled over M�xico, and now Im back home rolling like a stone.

Review by Arturo Sandoval

Stones partners, this concert will be for posterity, to tell our grandsons the time that the best band of rock and roll came to Monterrey. It was wonderful, incredible and exciting.

Was my second time, because I specially travel to see them in 1998 Bridges to Babylon tour in Houston Tx. but this one was really special beacuse we had the great honor to receive them in our city.

All the songs were perfect, But I was very happy specially with "Its only rock n roll", " Gimme shelter", "Start me up", "Get out of my cloud", I was waiting for PAINTED IT BLACK my favorite song, but it doesn�t matter everything was great.

Thank you Mick, you rules !!! I never forget your friendly hello in spanish ""Que paso raza """ , and what about that cheer to our people ""ARRIBA LOS REGIOS "" JAJAJA that was great !!

Thank you Charlie you have an special gift ! Thank you Ronnie, was my pleasure see you rocking again ! Thank you Keith, you�re the perfect descripton that means be a rolling stone, standing ovation from Monterrey to you.

An incredible experience !!! God bless the STONES !!!! and see you in the next tour !!!!

Review by Kike Amador

Una semana despu�s haber tenido a U2 en concierto llega al estadio Universitario la banda m�s grande que pisa esta tierra, Rolling Stones. Despu�s de una larga espera (afuera del estadio) por azares del destino las casualidades lograron que me regalaran un boleto. Todo se fu� dando poco a poco, hasta culminar dentro del mismo estadio en una muy buena zona con un boleto gratis.

Keith estuvo grandioso con ese aire de jefe que tiene, muy a su estilo y sin dejar el cigarro. Tambi�n Jagger y sus sensuales movimientos a lo largo y ancho del estadio no pasaron desapercibidos.

Yo iba s�lo a una cosa: no quer�a irme de ah� sin antes haber escuchado "Simpathy For The Devil". Fu� para m�, lo mejor del concierto. A�n no puedo olvidarlo.

Conclusi�n: tal vez no haya hecho nada bueno en esta vida, pero estuve en un concierto de los Rolling Stones...

Review by Memo Fdz

�El tiempo no espera a nadie? (Time wait for no one?)...pues tal parece que a los Stones si...Anoche en Monterrey N.L. qued� demostrado una vez mas, que "El tiempo esta de su lado" (Time is on your side)...con un clima casi perfecto, unos 24�C, el estadio conocido como "El Volc�n", fu� testigo de uno de los conciertos mas memorables que se hayan visto en esta ciudad.

En punto de las 20:20 Hrs. comenz� el show de obertura, a cargo de la Cantante Mexicana, Alejandra Guzm�n, quien a pesar del esfuerzo que hizo por entretener a la "Raza" que ya ocupaba una m�nima parte del estadio, no se libr� de los s�lbidos y abucheos del p�blico, que le ped�an que mejor se retirara del lugar. Cabe mencionar que su actuaci�n fu� mejor que la del grupo Fobia, que abri� el concierto en el Foro Sol, y quienes de plano pasaron sin pena ni gloria en el show del Domingo pasado.

Despu�s de tocar alrededor de 45 min. la cantante Mexicana, se despidi� del p�blico Regio, cantando "La Plaga", un hit cl�sico del Rock and Roll, en espa�ol.

Despu�s....todos esper�bamos con ansia, que se apagaran nuevamente las luces, para disfrutar del platillo principal : "The Rolling Stones"...

Con una espera, que se prolong� por mas de una hora, seg�n se nos inform�, debido a fallas de car�cter t�cnico, por fin, en punto de las 22:20 Hrs, se apagaron nuevamente las luces...y las 40 mil almas que est�bamos en el estadio, esper�bamos con gran emoci�n, que aparecieran los Stones en el escenario.

En las pantallas gigantes del escenario, empezaron a proyectarse im�genes de un "Bigger Bang" que estaba a punto de comenzar...despu�s de dos explosiones de Juegos Pirot� empez� a escuchar el conocido Riff de Jumping Jack Flash, y el maestro Keith Richards hacia su aparici�n, seguido por Ronnie y Mick, mientras la s�lida bater�a de Charlie Watts, soportaba el primer cl�sico de la noche, que los Stones nos hab�an preparado.

Con Mick Jagger, vistiendo una chaqueta Azul, y con la energ�a que lo carateriza, terminando JJF, saludo al p�blico regio en espa�ol : "Que onda Raza?"..."C�mo est�n Monterrey?"...lo cu�l provoc� la entrega inmediata del p�blico...entonces se ecuch� el incio de It's only rock and roll....lo que elev� m� euforia de la gente...

El Set List, fu� el mismo que tocaron en la ciudad de M�xico, en lo personal, me hubiera gustado haber escuchado She�s So Cold, Bitch, o Paint it Black, pero creo que tendr� que esperar hasta la siguiente gira...

Lo mas destacado del Show, creo que fue JJF, It�s only rock and roll, Angie, y Gimme Shelter, en la primera parte del show.

Desp�s, Mick dijo : �Quiero presentarles a la Banda�, y quien se llev� la mayor ovaci�n fue Keith, casi dos minutos tuvo que esperar, para agradecerle a la gente esa muestra de cari�o...�Gracias Amigos� dec�a un Keith, realmente conmovido, y disculp�ndose por el poco espa�ol que sabe hablar....

Nos deleit� con la baladita This Place is Empty, del nuevo CD, y su gr�n cl�sico : �Happy�, que hizo que una parte de los asistentes no par�ramos de aplaudir y bailar...

La segunda parte del Show, creo que es muy emotiva, ya que mientras la banda tocaba Miss You, comenz� el desplazamiento de una parte del escenario principal, hacia el escenario secundario, que se ubicaba en el otro lado de la cancha...una vez ah�, los Stones empezaron con Rough Justice, que dicho sea de paso, fue una de las canciones que mas gustaron al p�blico Norte�o (nunca habia visto, que un tema nuevo, causara tal emoci�n en la gente), le sigui� Get off of my cloud, y Honky tonk Women, mientras regresaban al escenario principal...

Con el inicio de Start me up, una explosi�n de fuego hiz� que la energ�a de la gente, llegara al m�ximo, y hasta el cierre del show, con Satisfaction, los Stones mantuvieron a casi todo el p�blico bailando, cantando, y celebrando, todo lo que Mick y compa��a hacian sobre el escenario.

Al final la banda fue despedida con una gran ovaci�n, y el p�blico m�xicano, qued� ampliamente Satisfecho, con un gran concierto.

Larga vida a los Stones, y ojal� que regresen pronto a nuestro pa�s.
