    I know $250 is still a ton for a ticket, but I went with my dad and it was awesome. A once in a lifetime experience.

    And we paid the same to see The Wall. It is all relative.

    I saw them back in 80s in Oakland, CA, they were very good, so many Bras and panties were thrown on the stage and lot of girls were topless. :D

    Saw Both shows in Philly. The first show i had VIP tickets and stood on the rail right next to the main camera guy. Was just a handshake distance away from Mick and Keith often as they kept coming in for closeup shots by the camera man. The first night was the best concert expereinece i have ever had.

    The second night my seats were in the lower level, still a good spot to see the show. The first night Mick Taylor killed it in midnight rambler and the second night they played "can you hear me knockin" with Mick Taylor playing the solo -

    My favorite part though was watching Keith play honky tonk woman and sympathy.

    I met a guy that has been going to about half the shows and watching them all from VIP spot. I asked him what his favorite part so far was and he just smiled and said "all of it".

    Some people i know that are not die hard stones fans went to the first philly show and were suprised how good it was - some said it was the best concert thay had ever seen....Stones Forever !!!

    I'm young but I think almost all the "classic" rock groups are better than 99.9% of the crap stuff out there now. Stones too.

    Saw them on the opening night of Steel Wheels in 1989 and on the 1997 tour. Both shows were awesome. Living Colour warmed up in 89 and The Foo Fighters were the warm up in 97.
