Looks like they will do one last big stadium tour before they retire (the lads are getting older).

What i am not happy about though is that they in the entirely first set will play "Dirty Work" in its entirety.  Come on really? Is that some sort of joke, perhaps one of their weakest albums.

In the second set they will only play songs from 1773 and onwards.. nothing of the old stuff.

I know they can do whatever they want because they earned it but really.. no old hits?

I dont know what to make of all this..

 Dirty Work had two great sons on it.

"Back To Zero" and "Winning Ugly".

"Harlem Shuffle" is tolerable.

They should not do any other song on that album. No one gives a garbage.

They should be playing Monkey Man, Midnight Rambler, Sympathy For The Devil, Shattered, Honky Tonk Woman, and obviously songs like that.........

........in their "final tour" (if they are going to perpetrate final tour fraud again for the 6th fricking time just to get that last 250 million they don't fricking need)

Dirty Work was by far the worst album they made.  It is the lemon in a basket of oranges.  WTF?

Yeah seems like they do not care about the fans regarding this tour. I seriously doubt i would go watch their concert with that set list.

Me neither. No chance, unless someone gave me seriously killer seats at face value perhaps.

I'd much rather see one of the Dave Matthews concerts instead.


I'll cut off a foot if I fail to get to one of the Roger Waters' concerts. He's added so many dates. I'll be flexible as garbage in time to pick the city in terms of shopping price instead of trying to see him in a place like Chicago and pay out the behind.

Hope to see Waters in Copenhagen. Saw his last show when he was in Denmark. It is just to bad that his voice is not really there to sing some of the songs of Floyd.

I saw the Tattoo You Tour it was the Los Angeles, Ca.

Also The Some Girls Tour Anaheim, Ca. (2 times and both Great Shows!)

Dirty Work? What the HELL?  I will need to think  really hard on this one.

Nothing from Let it Bleed, Sticky Fingers or Exile on Main Street! That was my favorite period of music from them. So, they are tired of playing  some of the top songs from those records. Why not play other less popular / known songs? Not diss the whole period.

Instead of playing You Can't Always Get What You Want hit us up with Love in Vain. No Brown Sugar? Then how about Sister Morphine or Can't You Hear Me Knocking. Tired of Tumbling Dice? Take us on a journey with All Down the Line but, do not leave out songs from these great records.

I am still wanting to see them one last time though. They are and always will be The Greatest Rock and Roll Band

All about mktg & the money. An insult to the fans but they know they'll put on a good show & clean up anyway. Never was a huge Stones fan but liked some of their earlier stuff mentioned above alot. They'll wait til their last farewell tour to play all their hits & best garbage

Sure, another farewell tour. I remember them having a farewell tour in 1980 if my memory serves me correctly (or maybe 1780 huh Mik:)?

About farewell tours, this time age also plays a role. I think Watts is over 70 years old.

I saw The Who's first farewell tour and I think 4 or 5 followed.

I've seen the Stones enough times in my day.  My best bud was their lighting director for the Steel Wheels tour.  He has some stories to tell for sure.

Keith does not get enough credit IMO. No matter how darn*d up he is, he can still play guitar and lead the band.

  Mick's face looks like the pucker of my fool and is just too hard to watch these days.

Maybe I'll catch their next farewell gig when they are using walkers and wheelchairs......

Would that be the exclusive nursing home tour in 2024 ?

What kind of stories can there be? Those guys were like 60 yrs. old when that tour took place? Are they still bangin 17 yr olds and snorting coke? I mean you've got to be kiddin.

Most stories dealt with women who approached the crew. 

 He also got to hang out with Keith quite a bit and did some heavy drinking, but no coke or smack.  He said Keith has sworn that off but still can put away a 5th of booze in the evening while playing a set on the road like it was nothing at all. 

Keith's cast off girl were tasty as well.  My bud would call me from the road and ask me what day of the week it was.  Crazy.
