Are the Stones playing that song "Let Me Down Slow" from the new record?

That song is so fucking good!

I hate that stage set up, it's the worst Stone stage for many a year, I read someone saying it looked like a multi-storey car park, that's exactly what it looks like!

u2 make far better stage designs IMHO, but hey that's just me.

Yeah, that stage is just one big joke of an eyesore. The lame advertising really caps it off.

not for nothing... as a diehard u2 fan who's seen the stones on this current tour...

the rolling stones stage BLOWS the vertigo set up, stadium or arena, completely out of the water.

their stage show is amazing... and, low and behold, they manage to change a few songs on the setlist.

don't judge the stage simply by it's "car park" appearance... would you like people judging popmart based on the fact that it looked like a mcdonalds?

people are actually sitting in that "car park"

the middle section of the stage lifts it's self up, moves down that ramp you see there, and plants it's self on the other side of the field midway through the concert.

amazing.

and yea... god forbid the stones use a bit of advertising... how lame and tacky...

Do U2 have Ipod adverts on their stage? Did they take money for it?

the common misconception is that u2 took no money for their entire iPod involvement.

they took no money for the commercial.

they very much get royalties for the use of their name and likeness on the actual u2 special edition iPod.

Stones stage does look amazing. By the way the Stones played "Sway" off of Sticky Fingers for the first time ever last week. Killer tune.

I did not get to go to the concert, but I've been at PNC Park many times for Baseball games. Thanks for posting this picture popmart 86.

I maintain that baseball stadiums blow football stadiums out of the water when it comes to outdoor staging.

Looking forward to the show.

Unfortunately...I have NO ONE to go with. I have two tickets for the show..and can't find anyone to go. WTF.

So...I will go by myself and sell the extra ticket there...hopefully.
