I checked all day for tickets and nothing cheaper than the $466 became available. Oh well, I've seen them 5 times over the years.
The guest for the Toronto show was Carrie Underwood.

wow this song was a surprise tonight. it was the song the fans voted to have played:
14. “Worried About You”

This song is one of the sublime leftovers that made Tattoo You such a revelation upon its release in 1980. It was intended for 1975’s Black And Blue, which is why part-time guitarist Wayne Perkins plays lead on the track. It’s a good thing the Stones picked it off the cutting-room floor, because it features killer Jagger/Richards vocals in the chorus and some of Mick’s most endearing falsetto singing in the verses. Put it all together and it adds up to one of the most soulful songs in the Stones’ imposing catalog.

Ha! $650-$2,000 a ticket for that? Yea, I'll pass.

I wonder who comes up with the idea to pair these geezers with pop stars like Underwood and Swift. Aerosmith just released a single with Underwood a few months ago and it stiffed bad. Now the Stones are massacring their standards with Taylor Swift. Aerosmith I can understand because they hadn't released anything in over a decade, but do the Stones really need the crossover appeal that bad at this point?

The Stones are playing a surprise club show at The Fonda in Hollywood tonight. They will be playing the entire Sticky Fingers album front to back, no doubt as promotion for the deluxe box set coming out next month. Tickets are $5 but of course sold out in just a few minutes when they went on sale at noon today. It's too bad Mick Taylor is now off the ongoing tour as this album is his greatest showcase.

Yep, totally agree with you about Mick Taylor.

The show tonight should be pretty great though. I'd give my left little toe to be there. Sticky Fingers is one of my fave albums of all time.

Sorry, I should have clarified. The show is June 3 in Minneapolis. We hit the presale just right - $74 bucks each including ticketmaster rape charges, etc.

It's in TCF Stadium which is a pretty small stadium so there aren't really any "bad seats" - feeling like we snagged a bargain. :wiggle:

New Keith Richards tune "Trouble" from his upcoming solo album. Has a laid back feel for a rock tune but I like it better'n any Stones tune from the last 15 years.

what a great guitar player that guy is...talk about aging with style!

Rush are aging with style too by the way. Just recently I heard their album from 2012 Clockwork Angels - it's amazing.

Found a vid from last night's show in Havana. I'm sure many more will emerge in the coming days.

Mick Jagger to Be a Dad Again at Age 72
Billboard 3 hours ago

Image

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger is set to be a dad again at age 72, Billboard has confirmed.

Jagger is expecting a child with 29-year-old ballerina girlfriend Melanie Hamrick – his eighth and her first. The Sun was the first to report the news. Jagger and Hamrick began dating in 2014.

The news comes not even two months after the news that Jagger’s Stones bandmate Ronnie Wood welcomed twins at age 68.

Jagger has only been married once, to Bianca Jagger, with whom he had daughter Jade. He currently has seven children with four women, including four kids – daughter Lizzie, son James (who starred in HBO’s Vinyl), daughter Georgia and son Gabriel – with longtime partner Jerry Hall.

The Rolling Stones are set to play the inaugural Desert Trip in Indio, Calif., for back-to-back weekends in October and also have one date scheduled for Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena later that month.

Picked up the new Stones CD on a whim today (that ugly blue cover admittedly sticks out in the racks) and really enjoying it tonight. It's all old blues covers, I guess they recorded it in 3 days during sessions for their next "real" studio album. Mick is a surprisingly good harmonica player.

I've heard a few tracks and really like it too. I'm glad they went back to their roots. Mick sounds fantastic!
