Even though I got to see them open with TSRTS in '77, I would have loved to see them open with Immigrant Song back in 71/72. I thought it was their best show opener.

You must mean that it would be a good opening song even though they never have opened with it.

I can see your point. That's an interesting idea.

I think alot of what would be good opening songs for the Stones,(other than the ones that they have opened with).

yes that is when i mesnt sorry i miss understood the topic...but now that i understand it i would have to choose "Rock 'N Roll"

ok

everyone is asking me why a certain song isnt as an opener.

Concert openers not songs that Zeppelin didn't open a show with.

I dont remember Zeppelin opening with WLL or BD though. I forgot to Add Good Times, Bad Times.

We're gonna groove for me. Like in the Royal Albert Hall concert. Beautiful!

I always thought that Rock and roll is more suitable for an ending. :blink:

My cousin and I had tickets for the Cleveland, October 26/27, 1980 shows at Richfield Coliseum, before the cancellation of the 1980 US Tour.

I had always thought at that time how appropriate, "In the Evening" would have been for the opening number.

I was hoping for the 02 Arena show, they would open with it. To my surprise not only did they not play it, but not a single song from In Through the Out Door.

:(

Another vote for "Immigrant Song".

Great opening tune. And from a band that, in those days, had everything to prove and nothing to lose. And their playing reflects just that. B)

They opened up with White Summer once in 1969 because they couldn't find a Les Paul to open with what they wanted to.
