Totally amazing - really incredible someone at 70 can perform like this. Surely someone else has started a thread on this?

My thoughts exactly. Fantastic gig smile

Haven't seen it, but fully intend to smile

Apart from the obvious ageing in his face, the whole performance could have been 40 years ago. He moves exactly the same.

I am amazed by how thin he is! I agree it's quite remarkable. I am also just about finished Keith Richard's autobiography and am amazed that he' is even alive, let alone anything else..Mind you, I went to see Bruce Springsteen last week and, at 63, would argue that he is even more amazing!!

They were all fucking amazing!

What an energy!

I hope to grow old disgracefully like Mick and Keith!

Amazing gig. Just fan dabby dozey! 70 IS the new 30...

To have that energy and physique at that age has left me stunned - and I'm the wrong side of 40 and a runner so not being ageist here.

They looked like zombies, like The Returned!

Sounded OK though.

daimbardiva, lucky you seeing Bruce Springsteen! My sister saw him and said he played all of Born to Run straight through - did he do that when you saw him?

imperial blether - no, but it was fantastic anyway, there was quite a lot he didn't play that I might have expected to hear (eg glory days) but he really opened my eyes to a lot of his earlier stuff that I wasn't familiar with..have been going mad on spotify since! He finished with an acoustic Thunder Road which made me cry! Definitley one of the best gigs ever smile

I was there and it was mind bowing. I was sad to see some reviews weren't great. The sound on the BBC wasn't great I noticed re watching it. They just looked such genuine friends. It was very touching.
