The Only Band That Matters opened their summer 2015 North American tour in San Diego. View the gallery.
Nothing can match the feeling of seeing The Rolling Stones live. At the first night of the ZIP CODE tour at San Diego's Petco Park, the band channeled the energy and power of their heyday and delivered it with unmatched wisdom and panache for a new era. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards set the template for that singer-guitarist dynamic, and the spell only grows stronger on this tour. "Jumpin' Jack Flash" practically fissured the ground with a sonic earthquake as the stadium erupted, while "Bitch" saw them team with Gary Clark, Jr. for a phenomenal moment bridging eras.
"Gimme Shelter" smoothly rolled into a bluesy "Sympathy for the Devil" that felt heavenly divine just before a stunning and striking encore of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction)." In this case, everybody got what they wanted though—the rock show of a lifetime, and the feeling is better than ever.
