I saw the Stones last night at MetLife Stadium, 6 weeks delayed due to Mick's heart surgery.  Most of my friends were at the Thursday night show and it got rave reviews, so I knew they wouldn't disappoint, and they didn't.

Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real opened at 8:00 PM sharp and played 45 minutes.  Lukas is Willie's son and this is the band featured in "A Star is Born".  Lukas sounded so much like his father on a song called "Turn Off the News", especially poignant given the events of this past weekend.  On Thursday a crappy indie band called The Wombats opened for them, so I was glad we got these guys instead.  Just a great southern rock set.

The Stones played 2 hours 5 minutes.  Mick is an ageless wonder, even aside from being 2 months removed from heart surgery.  I don't understand how he can move the way he does at his age.  He let Keith sing 2 songs but other than that he was running around for the entire set.  And he sounded great too.

Keith definitely has been hit the hardest over time.  He's got a huge gut now and a hairline that starts behind his ears.  Ronnie Wood definitely seems to be carrying him now on guitar and looks and plays great.  He and Daryl Jones are the unsung heroes of this band.  Jones' bass is awesome and Wood is holding it all together.

The highlight of the show was probably Mick's duet with back-up singer Sasha Allen on "Gimme Shelter" during the encore.  We got a really good setlist though, including the deep cut "Harlem Shuffle" which they haven't played in 30 years, and "Let It Bleed", which they haven't been doing much on this tour. 

Setlist:

1. Jumpin' Jack Flash
2. You Got Me Rocking
3. Tumbling Dice
4. Harlem Suffle (Bob & Earl cover)
5. Monkey Man
6. You Can't Always Get What You Want
7. Let It Bleed (acoustic)
8. Dead Flowers (acoustic)
9. Sympathy for the Devil
10. Honky Tonk Woman
11. You Got the Silver (w/Richards on vocals)
12. Before They Make Me Run (w/Richards on vocals)
13. Miss You
14. Midnight Rambler
15. Paint It Black
16. Start Me Up
17. Brown Sugar

Encore:
18. Gimme Shelter (duet w/Allen)
19. Satisfaction

I saw them in DC July 3rd, they were killer. Similar setlist although they did “Mercy Mercy” for the first time since 1969 which was cool. And yeah, Ronnie musically is the mvp of this tour, his playing has been Mick Taylor-like this tour..

Harlem Shuffle was the “fan voted” song. They’ve been listing 4-5 songs per show and people can vote for what they wanted to hear. I think a couple other choices that night were 2000 Light Years, Undercover, and Moonlight Mile. I seem to remember hearing that on the radio. I could’ve gone Thursday and sat in the iHeart box but I was given 30 mins notice and had no shot at getting my wife to the office to go.

No, Monkey Man was the fan voted song. I voted for When the Whip Comes Down.

Listening to Jim Kerr on my way to work everything was a big rambling mess.  You got a great setlist.  I wouldn’t have voted Monkey Man over Whip either.

Like I've said a hundred times, Satan is sure holding up his end of the bargain with the Stones. I've seen them in '75, '81, and '89. The shows were always top notch. However, as good as they are, after I saw the Steel Wheels tour I said to myself, I really never have to see them again. They're great, but they can't get better if that makes any sense. Funny you mention the openers like the Wombats. The Stones used to always have the best of the best as openers and a lot of times it was coordinated with the city. They had Iggy open for them in Detroit, ZZ Top in Houston, Guns n Roses in Los Angeles. Other openers included Prince, Van Halen, Journey, J.Geils Band, and Tina Turner. Glad to see they can still slug it out with the heavyweights. Hail Satan.

Looking at Facebook comments, it wasn’t even close. Everyone wanted Monkey Man. I don’t get it. It might’ve been my least favorite that they played.

My favorite new band, and favorite concert of 2019, is The Struts. And the Stones had them open a few dates. They’ve also had the awesome Gary Clark, Jr.  So they still know how to pick them. But there’s some crap opening for them too.

It’s the diehard Stones fans that are actually going to their site and doing the voting. I’m one of those diehards and I would have voted Monkey Man for sure. For the DC show I voted Emotional Rescue just because it was the first Stones song as a kid I remembered but l knew “Rocks Off” would win because that’s one the diehards would want and yep, that’s what won..

Rocks Off was one of our choices too. Money Man beat it. I can’t remember the 4th choice.

Saw them in Houston a couple of weeks ago. Amazing how they haven't lost a step at nearly 80. "Heartbreaker" was the fan-voted song.

BTW, at my show this was the lowlight of the show.  Sasha isn't even half the singer Lisa Fischer is, her singing on Gimme Shelter just made me sad that Lisa isn't touring with them anymore. If I had my way they'd just drop that song now that she's not there anymore..

She sounded awesome to me.

She's a great singer, don't get me wrong, but she doesn't have half the range Lisa has....Lisa had a "note" that she'd finish with on that song that got the entire crowd going insane every time I saw them that Sasha doesn't have...

go 2:40 in. This is from the Bridges to Babylon tour but she never lost that, she was singing and hitting that high stuff all the way through 2014-2015 which was her last time with them..
