I'm not going.
I think the Stones are very talented and have written many great songs, but I am a first generation Beatles fan and I have a long memory of the Stones. I always think of them as being just ok compared to the Beatles. Perhaps that is unfair, but it's just an old habit to compare them.
I think dakota makes a very good point about watching the clips of the Stones on TV as seeing a generic performance. That was my feeling too.
I just saw Bruce Springsteen in LA and was very impressed with him and the bands' show. That man works hard.
I don't care for stadiums either. Arenas are better!
Can't wait to see Paul next month in Anaheim!
I agree with the Stones stuff, Auj..i probably was biased that way. I became a pretty big Stones fan around 1973 or so, but like 5% of Macca/Beatles. Saw them in 1989, and damn--the new stuff was OK, but FAST FAST FAST..hated the old material.
As for "The Boss", he does work hard, and I am starting to appreciate him more, but I could never see being a huge fan--not really my cup o tea. But just laetely, especially after an HBO special, he did capture me a bit with his energy. I do like some of his songs, but after you've witnessed the best, the rest seem to be hundrum to me.
By the way---Utah is calling!! LOL
