Review by Ellen de Jonge

I was born with the Stones and I love them. My parents take me and my brother to Stones concerts, 'cause they're huge Stones fans and they want to share it with us. This concert was my second Rolling Stones concert, my first one was in Germany in May 1990 (Urban Jungle Tour), but I don't remember very much of it, as I was only 7 years old.

The concerts supporting act was "The Dave Matthews Band". They were very good but the audience didn't really react. They we were all waiting for The Stones….. With the concert there was another important event for the Dutch people: Our footballteam had to play in the 1/8 finale of the Worldchampionship against Yougoslavia. People had taken little televisions, radios and telephones to know the score. With the first score form Holland the crowd went wild and just after that the Stones came on stage.

They started with Satisfaction, it was very spectacular with fireworks and light-effects. Everybody started immediately singing and dancing. The next song was Let's Spend The Night Toghether, another well-known song, so all the people knew it and sang along. There was an enormous video screen and when The Stones played Anybody Seen My Baby there were parts of video clip on the screen. The seventh song was Saint Of Me and Mick played the guitar.

No Security TourThe Web choice of the day was Memory Motel and now Mick played the keyboard. The song after that was Miss You and all the 50.000 who were at the concert started singing: Oeh-Oeh-Oeh (I bet the audience does that on every concert). Now Mick started to introduce the band and after that Keith sang: You Don't Have To Mean It and Wanna Hold You. A bridge came out of the stage and the Stones went to the small stage. Ron went all wild by then and started jumping around. Keith and Mick enjoyed too… Charlie sat and didn't show any emotions as usual! The played Little Queenie and actually it was first time I ever heart the song. The also played You Got Me Rocking and Like A Rolling Stone.

When they walked back to the main stage, they shook hands and waved. Meanwhile the game of the Netherlands-Yougoslavia was over and the final score was 2-1. Again the crowd went wild, Keith wanted to say something but it didn't work, the crows made too much noise, he just laughed and waited for the audience to calm down again. They following song was Sympathy For The Devil which was performed fabulous. With the last song Jumping Jack Flash there was a lot of fireworks and the Stones went and came back for an encore: Brown Sugar. And again there were fire-works.

On the whole I found it a marvellous concert, the guys were great and the sound didn't sound that bad to me as some might say of the Arena…Less great was that we had to stand still on a parking lot for over an hour, afterwards!! It was 3 in the morning ( not in the afternoon !!) when we came home ( Not very nice, when you have to stand up at 7 to go to school!) The only songs in the concert I missed were my 2 favourites: Angie & You Can't Always Get What You Want. I really have to do this over some time, I can't wait for my next Stones concert!!
