Anyone else going to see the Stones on 9/15?

I'm going to see them in New Jersey next Thursday. I have never seen the Stones live before. I am pretty exicted. Has anyone here seen them live, if so, what can I expect?

I only saw the Rolling Stones back in 1978 when Journey opened for them.
I never really got into the Rolling Stones anytime after that, still don't really care for them although, my friends went to see them during the Voodoo Lounge Tour ... and said "it was a spectacular show." They were in the front section seats ...
Where are your seats ?? Will you have a front view of the show ??

you always bring Journey into the discussion

I don't knowwhere the seats are, my friend bought them. I assume they are bad because they were "only" $70 a pop.

Not meant intentionally, as Journey DID open for the Rolling Stones when they got a new lead vocalist (Steve Perry).
I remember my friends saying that the Rolling Stones concerts are very visual with lots of special lighting effects. This is why "front view" seating would be beneficial ... otherwise, I believe listening to the music is all you could actually enjoy, as you may not see the show's overall concept.

some day love will find you
break those chains that bind you !!!

I love that video......

ok, back on topic: Giants stadium is a huge place too, probably has 75,000 seats or more. $70 seats probably mean I'll be in nose bleeds.

AAHHHHH YES, Separate Ways (Worlds Apart) ...

As for the Rolling Stones concert ...

Well as long as those "nose bleeds" are in the front section, you may be very well surprised at how GREAT those seats may be in seeing the actual show. The only thing you wouldn't see close-up (of course) is the band themselves ... but, that's what those 'annoying' video screens are for anyway.
Hopefully, you'll still have a GREAT time even if you just listen to their music ... If it was me going to this concert ... Well, I only like a couple of songs by them so, I'd be more after seeing the show concept than hearing the music.

Agree with you there !!
As like I said, If I went to their show ... I'd rather see the concept behind the show itself, not necessarily them performing.

I've never seen them and with every passing tour I'm like "this could be the farewell tour...I have to go"....I have a feeling they'll be selling out arenas well into their 70s

Excellent. I'm in the nosebleeds also Headache.

Here's the question Headache: Will you be getting there early to tailgate OR will you be getting there nice and early to catch Alanis Morrissette OR going early to look for Jimmy Hoffa?
