For love or money?

Rolling Stones are the most overrated overblown (and overpriced) jukebox in the world. How many new songs are they playing on their tour?

Actaully, how much of their set list is taken up by songs recorded since 1990?

Rolling Stones = Yawn. Turn up, pay your 400 bucks and then listen to the same old tunes that they've been banging out live since the 70s.

Is anyone seriously saying that they're a better live draw than U2?

i saw both the stones and u2 this year.

while i obviously had a better time at the u2 shows than the stones shows, based on the fact that i'm a u2 hardcore fanatic and i only just like the stones, the stones stage production and live energy did blow me away.

mick, at 20+ years bono's elder, had twice the on stage energy that bono had durring any of the 9 vertigo shows i went to, and their stage production blew the glorified wheelchair ramps of the vertigo stage away.

That's because he's rock & roll's first clone

And don't worry about Bono. He'll really be in high gear for the Mercy 2008 tour

early reports say that the stage for the mercy 2008 tour involves a giant roll of toilet paper that stretches across the arena floor

Also consider that the Stones do not play shows on back to back nights. There is always a day or more in between shows.

While Mick can move his hips well from side to side, the most important job of the singer is well, singing, and Mick is not in Bono's league when it comes to that.

U2's stage production in Europe was huge. Did you see any European shows in 2005?

u2 may have had more people attend, but the stones charged so damned much that it was a given that they'd make more money.... plus it probably cost them less to put on the tour because they were sponsored by ameriquest.
This is so true. Stones tickets are like triple the cost of U2 tickets. Also U2 was Ticketmaster's biggest ticket request of 2005. beating out The New England Patriots. Rolling Stones were third on the list. Check it out.

the most important job for the lead singer of a rock band is to entertain.

no i was not able to make it to europe... i don't have that kind of income to just up and travel to europe for a show. i'm still holding out an outside hope that i could make it to hawaii, but i'll have to keep that listed as unlikely for now.

so all i can go on is video and pictures. yes, i know... this is not as good as actually being there. but i highly doubt there is anything in the outdoor production of vertigo that can rival the moving stage of the bigger bang tour. it really is something to behold, seeing the entire center section of the stage, with the band on it, lift up and move OVER the crowd, the length of a football field, and park it's self at the other side. that pretty much takes the cake over a couple of ramps a big screen.

look... i'll say it again- i personaly enjoyed the vertigo shows more, and would rather see a vertigo show... but that's only because i'm a u2 fanatic, while just a rolling stones fan. but how i would long for u2 to try to do something as huge as popmart & zoo tv again.

even in pictures, the bigger bang's outdoor and indoor production is more impressive than that of vertigo's. they were even able to convert the moving stage to an indoor setting.

outdoor















Indoor

could U2 have played the stones tour schedule at the stones prices and sold it out like the stones did?

we all know what happened the last time U2 tried to do stadiums in the US and they weren't even charging 450 bucks for a ticket.

That's gonna happen when the album you are supporting isn't doing so well in the U.S.

But as I recall, ZooTV went quite well.

But the Stones have done much less stadium dates than U2 did for PopMart.
