Nah, but the Stones are at the end of their tour now, when they are at their best. They've been in flying form the last few nights, and Keith totally nailed Honky Tonk Woman in their last show.

What a show !!!! I love slane and i love the Rolling Stones fairplay to the guys they really can put on a show. THAT Stage was just mindblowing i would have paid just to stand and look at it for 2 hours.
I got some pics i'll put up later once i wake up

Great show alright.Stage was amazing...Jagger has some energy for a guy my dads age!That section where the stage went out into the crowd was class...Sympathy For the devil was my highlight but to be fair every song was class...and a nice fireworks display at the end too.

They used to have people sitting on the side wings of the stage in their previous shows, but they didn't do it for this one for some reason. I was right down the front. My buddy got one of Keith's plecs, the bastard.

It was an unreal show. It's a sad state of affairs for todays music, when a bunch of 60 year olds can put all other bands to shame. Keith was on fire. He completely nailed everything. I'm hoping to get a ticket for the London show on Sunday. Quickest two hours of my life. First the anticipation, then the Charlatans, and then the Anticipation followed by the Stones, whom did not fail to deliver what was expected of them, made it probably the best gig I've ever been to.

A complete joke this lot are, saw them once, the second time they played Slane, and it was one of the worst gigs I have ever attended.

The only thing that interests me about this gig, is to see how the Grab all association get on with the planning permission, which must be in place before they sell tickets.

What's going to happen when all these legacy acts stop or die? whichever comes first? Who is going to fill stadiums then? X factor people? Or maybe corporations will actually have to start investing properly in real talent again and let them develop like the old day's.

Legacy acts allow older people who can cough up €100 for a ticket to try reclaim a wisp of their former glory days.
