The Rolling Stones – Centurylink Field – Seattle Wa : August 14th 2019

Another wonderful performance by the Stones. This is probably the 6th or 7th time I have seen them going back to the Steel Wheels tour in 1989. I saw them in L.A. where Guns and Roses opened up for them…what a show that was.

Opening for them last night was Lukas Nelson, Promise of the Real…wasn’t familiar with him until the person next to me told me that he was Willie Nelson’s son…then it clicked and there were a few songs which if you closed your eyes you would swear Willie was on stage, he sounded so much like him. Not really my kind of music, but he was quite good and put on a good set.

The Stones came on around 8:45 or so and opened up with Street Fighting Man and the hits just kept coming after that. Some of my favorites early in the show were Beast of Burden, Honky Tonk Women, Miss You and Midnight Rambler. The show kept getting better and better as it went on and the second half was even better than the first with song like, Paint It Black, Start Me Up, Jumpin’ Jack Flash and Brown Sugar. They even did a short acoustic set where they played one of my all time favorites, Dead Flowers. The encore brought the house down with, Gimme Shelter and (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, followed by a firework show above the stadium.

Mick and the guys were not running and jumping around the stage as much as they used to, but they put on a super show and still are one of the best live performing bands in the world. I will plan to see them when the next tour comes around.
