Like a Rolling Stone..  
So in the year of free concerts, we must add The Rolling Stones on September 27 at Giants Stadium. As with Bon Jovi (did I mention that yet?), the seats were in the nosebleed section but why should we complain... the tickets were donated.

Mick Jagger was a little predictable and preening like a teenager looks ridiculous when you are able to order from the senior menu at Denny's. But his vocals were good, as was Keith "Nine Lives" Richards'. They started the show rather late (9:46) even thought the opening act (Kanye West... yup, Not bad but don't really think it was the best match considering Dave Matthews, Alice Cooper, Van Morrison, and Elvis Costello were some of the other openers on this tour) was on time. That's not a big deal if it's a weekend... but it wasn't.

PS: These seats would have cost almost $90 including parking, service fees, etc. if we would have paid for the tickets. Now there were fireworks and you can see the big screens behind the band... but ticket prices are making it harder for fans to afford to see their music heroes.
