The Rolling Stones
Ladies and Gentlemen... THE ROLLING STONES!!! That's how the show started for the band that formed in London in 1962. With a claim on the title of "greatest rock n roll band of all time" I had high expectations. There are debates that have gone on for decades and will continue seemingly forever. Pepsi or Coke? Windows or MAC? Nike or Reebok? Beatles or Stones?
With 29 studio albums, 18 live albums, and numerous compilations, they've sold over 250 million units. They were inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in 1989 and have continued to set records for high-grossing concerts.
The anticipation and level of excitement before the show was palpable and rare for me. I've seen so many iconic acts but this was just another level of stardom. The band easily packed the stadium and also had news helicopters flying over to cover the epic event.
Keith Richards walked out and started "Jumpin Jack Flash", then they went right into "It's Only Rock n Roll", and played classics throughout the night like "She's So Cold", "Honky Tonk Woman", "Gimme Shelter", "Start Me Up", "Sympathy for the Devil", "Brown Sugar", and many others.This was really a once in a lifetime show because they rarely come near Miami and I'm really glad I got the chance to see them. I wouldn't hesitate to see them again and recommend you do as well!
