Rolling Stones - A Bigger Bang concert


Wow, last night's Rolling Stones concert at SBC Park in San Francisco was awesome! Really spectacular!

Metallica performed in the opening of the show, then there was a half an hour break. When the lights turned off, a fireworks show started, with lots of loud bangs and cracks, and flames going up in the sky. Then an energetic Mick Jagger appeared and sang "Start Me Up", energizing the audience.

The first half of the show most of the songs they played were from their new album. In the second half they played their classic songs. At some point a moving platform moved the band in the middle of the stadium, while in the back of the scene a huge lip & tongue appeared.

Gosh, despite the age of these guys they managed to keep everybody on the stadium floor standing and dancing! And they performed for more two hours with a lot of energy. At more than 60 years old, Mick Jagger was running around like a teenager, really crazy. I wish I'll be in the same shape at that age ;)

I am from Auckland , New Zealand and I am a very proud Rollig Stones fan and My hobbie is collecting all memerabelia of the band and I now have every thing that they have made on cd. This new album,"A Bigger Bang" is, in my opinion, the best albumthat they have ptoduced in the entire careerof the band. They are living proof that"Old Rockers just Get Better with age. Long may they renain.

I bought "A Bigger Bang" in London right after its launch and I must say it's a goddamn good one. There are many great musicians, but few real professionals. Regarding the Stones -- I really admire their professionalism.

As an old Stones-Fan ,i am pleased with "Still going strong" against all ods.They have the age ,as most of today"s grandad"s.But when the old bluesmen thinking on B.B.King Buddy Guy etc. can nso accept once for all that you never get"s to old !"It"s only rock"nroll"

Fan since 1963
