    I see former Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft is supporting The Stones tonight. Wasn't there a big legal case some years ago involving Verve's use of a Stones riff? The Stones demanded a hefty compensation.

    Is Richard still paying back those dues by appearing for free? Or is this The Stones way of saying "sorry, mate"?

    No, the band are being paid their normal rate.


    Fantastic gig tonight. Can't believe I saw the Rolling Stones 55 years ago in the Usher Hall and here we all are still rocking and a-rolling.

    The Stones get 100% of all royalties from 'Bittersweet Symphony'.

    East stand, section 6, row J. Fantastic seats. Dead chuffed. Great gig.

    Allen Klein sued them after the stones agreed to the standard 50% royalties because they used more of the song.

    Was certainly well attended! Got on the tram at York Place after seeing Wicked last night, and Murrayfield was hell on Earth.

    Took a chance on the night and turned up at the ticket office. Got two seats in West Stand with a great view. They maybe all look their age but they certainly still have the drive and energy. What pleased me most was they actually look like they still enjoy every second.

    And me too.

    Normally hate stadium gigs...
    But do they know how to put one on??

    Thinking back to them at what felt like their peak in the mid-70s.....did I expect them to be still playing, let alone doing it in such a way? NFW.

    Truly inspiring.

    A superb concert, and hearing all their classic songs live was absolutely brilliant. Brown Sugar and Honkytonk Woman were amazing.
    Mick, and the gang, even as OAP's certainly showed how to perform a stageshow

    No bother. That lucky dip thing is an absolute bargain.

    I owe you my thanks too.

    We looked at buying full price tickets but the price, plus hotel and train fares was going to take us into several hundreds of pounds.

    Given that I don't own a single Rolling Stones record, I couldn't justify the cost.

    As it turned out, we found a brilliant hotel for £80 (Roomzzz at Manchester corn exchange) and £70 for 2 tickets made it more reasonable.

    We spent a fortune on bevvy and grub, but we would have done that anyway.

    Thanks again.
    Buy nothing online unless you check for free cashback here first. I've already earned £1,789.68!

    This was the highlight of the gig for me.... still getting goosebumps.

    When she (sorry, didn't catch her name) strode down the runway, and just let it go......

    Mick bouncing off her. Ronnie and Keith weaving in and out of each other. Charlie being Charlie.

    A song that is still very relevant, 50 years on.

    Thank you, NorthernHibee

    That's almost exactly the view I had on Saturday.

    As an aside, I hate folk who feel the need to film every damn song. Live in the ****ing moment, ffs....!!

    However, see the next morning when I'm trying to relive it.......
