Rolling Stones, 2021 No Filter Tour, Raymond James Stadium

It’s only rock and roll but we like it! – By Randy (October 2021)

We have been remiss about keeping our blog current for the past twelve months or so. After getting back from our four years in the Caribbean, daily events, Covid 19, and the social upheaval brought on by the pandemic caught up with us, and we let our blog slide. We intend to do better in 2022, but for now, suffice it to say, we are all healthy, and the boys are now both well into the academic and social experiences that Theresa and I vaguely recall as our high school years. We have been involved in endless boat projects, to continue to improve the Pilot’s Discretion and prepare her for our next boating adventure ( more to come on that front shortly).

One of the highlights of 2021, for us, was the opportunity to finally get to see The Rolling Stones live. When the Stones first announced their “No Filters” tour in late 2019, we were fortunate enough to buy seats in the third row at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium. To say that we were stoked is an understatement. Theresa and I have both been trying to see the Stones since we were teenagers, and in late 2019, we were sure we had arrived at rock and roll heaven. Of course Covid happened, and one of the first social casualties of the pandemic were large social gatherings. It seemed like there was a high likelihood that our once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Stones had slipped past. Obviously, with all of the tragedy associated with the pandemic, our lost opportunity to see the Stones pails in comparison, but we were disappointed nonetheless.

Fast forward to October 2021, and, Covid vaccination cards in hand, we gathered with about 100,000 of our closest friends for what was an unbelievable night of rock and roll. The crowd was an eclectic mix of old hippies, baby boomers, Gen Xers and millennials with a few thousand babies in strollers determined not to be left out of a night of rock and roll history. We are attaching a few pictures of Mick and the gang.

We respectfully dedicate this post to the memory of Charlie Watts.

We will close this post with our sincere wish that you all enjoy a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year.
