Congratulations.

I think the last time Clapton dueted with the Stones was on Little Red Rooster, at Atlantic City 1989.

Maybe again??

A little disappointing, not much change so far from the first show. Adding Lady Jane doesn't help either. Probably the worst song they've done in my opinion.

Yeah, there's so many ballads they could have done instead.  Songs like No Expectations, Moonlight Mile or Beast of Burden.

Fantastic. Yeah Flo doesn't have the soul for it at all. Shame. It turned into a screeching contest with her which was a shame as the band sounded so good on this number. Eric came in and was a different class, he oozes coolness the guy (i'm seeing him in May). As for Mick Taylor, he completely owned MR its just a shame they never played can't you hear me knocking, my fav song.

Was this your first time seeing The Stones? At the time I saw 360, New Year's Day was my favorite U2 song, still top ten, and they didn't play it either show.

I empathize.  I saw that Clapton was touring and thought about getting tickets, but I have seen so many shows this year and spent so much $$ doing so!

they are in a no win situation with regards to set lists..they have quite a few MUST plays (though I'd like to delete some of them)...2 NEW songs..that leaves only a few to fill in from 50 years!..I personally would like to hear Lady Jane, just because it's different from Angie or Wild Horses AGAIN..(both great songs btw)...

For me only Tumbling Dice, Jumping Jack Flash, Honky Tonk Women and Brown Sugar are MUST plays.

Based on their history only the songs I mentioned ARE must plays.  I can't remember any full show when any of those songs hasn't been played.

right, those are part of what appears to be THEIR must play list!..I'm just glad to see ANYTHING played at a reasonably quality level at this point...as Chuck Leavell said "the train's gonna pull into the station for the final time sometime"..it'll be a sad, but necessary day.
