    hehe i agree with all of that, except for them not playing..


    how hard would it be to have two merch stands, one selling only rolling stones product, all 3 days, that they receive 100% of the proceeds from?

    i don't see how they would have any right to the concessions, since they are all vendors, not arena snack bars.

    I authorized the pay per view show last night and one aspect of the show that I found particularly surprising is that the new songs actually sounded pretty good live. I wasn't so hot on them when they got released a few weeks ago, but when done live I thought they worked pretty well. On another note, if they do play Coachella I hope they roll out a few guest stars, the guests really seem to bring out the best in them.

    i'm positive they will bring guests, and it's great to finally hear from someone who watched it.


    what i'm curious about, did Mick still have the energy of the last few tours, or did the age start to show. 12-12-12 was not a very good performance, how would you compare it to that?

    Mick was great and he has an unfathomable well of energy for a 70 year old man. I am 31 years old and work out on almost a daily basis and I would say he might possibly be in better shape than me. I have no idea how he does it.

    I do agree with you that 121212 was very underwhelming (I thought pretty much the whole show besides Waters and McVana was not that great) and I think it might be due to the fact that the Stones normally take a few songs to warm up (usually 4-5 songs) before they start getting in the groove, I've seen them 8 times in my life and I have found that to always be the case.

    that makes sense..however, i disagree about the rest of the 121212 show (although Waters & McVana were the best parts). the only thing as disappointing as the Stones performance is whatever was wrong with the kanye set, and the finale.

    Relative to how much I enjoyed Waters and McVana that is. But Clapton was also very good, The Who can still bring it, and Stipe at the end was a nice touch

    Plus on 121212 they played 'You Got Me Rocking' as one of their two choices and I really don't like that song at all and they always play that one live, thankfully they usually get it out of the way in the first few songs whenever I have seen them.

    i was more surprised and delighted with Stipe than with Vedder's appearance, in the end..

    Even if the Stones play Coachella, I can't imagine them not playing other area shows as well. So the idea that all the Stones diehards would buy the scalped tickets or the VIP hotel packages, does not stand up.

    that's ridiculous. LA area Stones fans still would. VIP hotel packages aren't going to be more than traveling elsewhere and still needing hotel/airfare packages. LA area fans is all you need to sell it out. Thank god international fans buy early, but weekend two was obviously LA-heavy. I imagine a couple thousand scalped tickets were purchased after the 2Pac hologram broke over mainstream media. If no international fans bought tickets, Coachella could still sell out with local ticket buyers, even without the Stones.

    if they are getting the Stones, the smart thing would be for GV to book them a show at the Coliseum but don't announce the date until Coachella tickets are sold out, and have it be only other socal appearance.

    The stones could sell out two LA area shows between the coachella weekends after the lineup is out and sells out i would think.

    Oh and the Saturday show was fantastic. It was easily the best Stones show that I have seen. The Stones on the polo fields was be amazing.

    I wouldn't expact an announcement any time "soon." They can announce just a few weeks out, and my understanding is that no shows have even been booked yet.

    hmmm, well that's good to hear. i just found a d/l link for it, so i'll give it a watch. if i was planning on watching them at chella, i wouldn't watch this so close to the festival, but i know there is no way i'm going to spend that long at Main missing a dozen or two sets in the process..especially after dark. Unless it's a super light day like Waters in '08.


    and it's not like that set won't be recorded. it may be more enjoyable watching the webfeed than dealing with the insanely large crowd they'll have..hopefully enough Stones fans will buy 3day passes and only come a day and a half, that the rest of the weekend will be not so crowded..

    If the do shows in the US it'll be arenas. They can experiment with Streisand level pricing and don't have to take on the expense/insurance/commitment of a big stadium stage.

    GV/AEG control the O2 arena in London and Staples in LA. So they already have an inside track and leverage in a negotiation.

    The big question for me is how non-Coachella dates in the LA area get announced and how a couple thousand Stones only fans affect the festival. If the Stones are on the poster at all in 3-4 weeks.

    Arenas are their preference, but I would expect some stadium shows as well (though you're likely right that Staples is the play in LA).

    How old are you? Trying to figure how many Stone shows you have seen,
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I hope they'll do a stadium show in LA :-/ I mean the concept of 'venue intimacy' is long gone so the bigger the better in my mind...
