straycat58 The most important tabloid Corriere della Sera has dedicated half page to the Fleet Concert spending enthusiastic lines on the performance. The core of the article is based on the fact that the Stones set-list seems to be for the Stones experts rather than for the big public.
No Hot rocks but pearls dedicated to the aficionados. In this sense also the stage is reduced to the essential if compared with the previous tours and stop hiding wrinkles but proudly showing them to the fans.
Well, this was the interpretation of the author...
I could say that the Gillette set-list nulls the above interpretation.
I'll keep you informed with evenctual addition from Italy.
A kiss to the Stoned ladies....

straycat58 Tks for the replies. In order:
I will scan and post the article on Monday next when I'm back in the office.
For the difficulties in finding stones stuff in Italy, I follow them since 34 years (I'm 44)and I'm a collector (expecially vinyl). Most of the stuff I find abroad (UK, States, boots in Asia and vinyl in East Europe)but if you follow EBAY you will find , with lot of patience, most of the stuff you probably look for. There's a fans club in Italy and I can give you the contact; maybe they're not so much organized but have a lot of stuff (vdo, boots, vinyl) for trade.
Finally, to the lady (is a lady?)who only met filibustieri and pirati della strada (which means crooks and pirates), I met a girl from Chicago who was scared about Italians pinching her ass; but she was spending her days listening to the Bee Gees and Donovan.
