The Rolling Stones added a second Toronto tour date to their highly anticipated ’50 and Counting’ Tour. I was so lucky to attend the special event where 16,000 eager fans packed the air canada center. I am honestly convinced Mick Jagger is in better shape than I am because I sat down for one song yet he was still going strong. Jagger has a ‘light-on-his-feet’, ‘lighter than air’ dance swagger which repeatedly took him around the entire stage. This concert was a dream come true! Special thanks to Mike for hooking up tickets. We snagged seriously amazing seats side stage lower bowl level.
The show opened fast! We weren’t expecting The Rolling Stones to take the stage until after 9:15 but tonight they were on schedule. The show began with an exciting mini-movie of different moments throughout their 50 year+ career. Celebrities appeared in the video to congratulate the band on their continued success or to share crazy stories. I cannot think of the Rolling Stones without thinking of my Dad. We used to listen to all the songs before I was old enough to speak. Since my dad is such a big fan of the stones, at the concert I picked him up a Rolling Stones ’50 Years’ T shirt for fathers day. My favorite moments were when they played ‘Gimme Shelter’, ‘Emotional Rescue’ ‘Before they Make Me Run’ – with Keith Richards on vocals, and ‘Satisfaction’.
