Review Malieveld the Hague, 5 september 1998

A few words about the Stones gig in the Hague. We went to the Hague 7.30 in the morning and arrived in the front row at 9.30, gates opened at 16.00 and the Stones performance started at 20.00 as usual with "Satisfaction" (supporting act was "Big Country"). After the first notes of Satisfaction, the Stones had to do their show in the pouring rain.

Such a shame they didn't play the Web choice, Waiting On A Friend. The setlist was pretty much the same as in the other concerts. Out Of Control (one of their greatest songs at the moment especially live), Anybody Seen My Baby and Saint Of Me were the hits from their latest album they performed. On the center stage they performed Little Queenie and of course Like a Rolling Stone. Great concert again for an audience of 86.000 people (a Dutch record) Mick, Keith, Ron and Charlie were greater than ever on that Saturday evening. Even Charlie seemed to enjoy the thunderous applause he got after the encore "Brown Sugar". Together with Mick it took a while before Charlie left the stage.
