I've seen them twice. Managed to pull 4 suite tickets to the Houston show. I love the Stones and they remind me of my father, i'll always go see them if I can.  Take the train 2 blocks from my house to dinner with my cousins and then walk to the show. Looking forward to it!

Last time I saw the Stones was at the Paradiso in Amsterdam in 1995. They were pretty good.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.

 Is Keith playing a nylon/gut-strung guitar there?  :-o

Saw them in '89. Clapton sat in for a few songs. It was pretty good.
Don't need to see them again.

My guess is that they chopped up a dealer and used his entrails.

Heart valve surgery for Mick, probably will be 2020 before he is back in shape to go on the road.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

they initially said valve, now they're saying stent, which makes more sense.

If that's true, most people could be back at work in a week. I bet there is a several million dollar insurance policy on this tour so they will make him take his time getting back. I suspect late summer / fall

ETA story is changing again, so who knows. If he leaves the hospital Saturday it's a stent. If he leaves later in the week it's a valve.
Either way, all the best Mick!!!

This. Haven't been this excited about a show in a long time. Rock and roll and nostalgia are both great things, when you combine them its even better.

Catheter valve replacement, pretty incredible that they can do this now.

Hopefully Iíll live long enough to need another bypass and it will be done the same way.

Just read that it was a transcatheter valve and a stent. A "normal" person would probably go home later today or tomorrow, then back to work in about a week or so. Of course nothing about Mick is normal.

Yes, it's pretty cool what can be done these days.

and hopefully Hicks, you'll live a long time and not need any other stuff done to / for your heart

I think itís best to be realistic about my prospects and ~30 years from my surgery when Iím in my late 60s or 70s itís highly likely that my grafts will need to be replaced. But who knows where weíll be with the technology at that point, so Iím hopeful that it wonít be the same ordeal I went through.

I went last night.
so yeah, they are 75+ yrs old
and Mick's vocal range is no more than 1 octave

but those guys can play and those songs are great.
Mick can still move

good times

At the DC show (which I did not attend) they busted out "Mercy, Mercy", which they haven't played since the Hyde Park show that became Brian Jones' public memorial. That's 50 years, you guys.
