    Lemme guess...they were awesome, dude. Mick strutted, Keith looked like the walking dead, Charlie pushed out his lip, etc etc great lights. Can't believe how old they are, yada yada.They should have retired 30 years ago. Don't know why anybody bothers except boomers are so fucking idiotic they can't let the 60's go. Bet the lot was filled with SUV's.

    I'm 60 and haven't listened to a Stones album since Exile On Main Street (still their greatest). While I still have a soft spot for The Ramones, for the most part I listen to current day bands like Weezer, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Staind, Mobile, Metric, etc. I don't drive an SUV either. So very sorry not to fit your "fucking idiotic" boomers mould, CT. But you just keep right on generalizing. I wouldn't want you to change the habits of a lifetime.

    Rolling Stones

    I didn't think I'd ever get a chance to see these guys play before they gave it up, but I saw them last night and it was the best show I've ever seen, bar none. And I've seen some great performances. No I'm not a boomer, but I am a die hard Stones fan (was listening to them in the womb) and I am so glad I got the chance to see these legends perform. I have never seen any group give it up so much, so energetically, as these guys. I, at half their age, would not have had a hope of keeping up with Mick's energy and endurance.

    I can tell you, no one in the world had more fun than me & my buds last night! No one!

    The show rocked. Sympathy for the Devil had to be one of my personal highlights, but Honky Tonk Woman, Brown Sugar, Shine a Light (with BonniefuckingRaitt!) were definitely high points for me too.

    The moment that brought tears to my eyes: Mick introduced all the performers, extras first, then the group, and then Keith. KEITH! OMG the crowd really gave it to him - the love and admiration in the room was palpable. The energy ramped up, then up, then UP some more! He was visibly moved by the crowd's adulation... he said the only words that I actually understood out of his mouth all night when he covered his eyes and said, "I don't know what to do now."

    Absolutely amazing! I am really grateful I got the opportunity to see these guys. The last show of the (I know it's been said before but really can there be more after this?) last tour. They gave it their all, and yes, they were great.

    What Keith said after that was "must be the brain damage".
    Then followed some really terrible singing by Keith.
    This almost derailed the momentum of the show, but fortunately they saved the best part for right after that, when the stage was wheeled out to the middle of the floor, and it was non-stop hits the rest of the way. Mick's voice is adequate, he knows it's limitations, and works within them, but please someone tell Keith to give up singing.
    I was glad to hear most of the songs I wanted to: Start Me Up, Honky Tonk Women, Sympathy for the Devil, Paint It Black, Brown Sugar, You Canít Always Get What You Want, and the finale Satisfaction. Songs I would have liked to have heard Gimme Shelter, Emotional Rescue, Ruby Tuesday, Beast Of Burden, were missed due to the time given to Bigger Bang album cuts.
    All in all, it was well worth seeing (I only got the chance because of the tickets that became available from refunds on the cancelled date) even from a $60 ticket, side view of the stage but I had a clear view of Watt's drum kit.
    Everyone around me was very happy with the sightlines, a well planned show.
