Just in time for the holiday season, Mets 101's Seven in Seven series returns as our gift to you. Each week, the Mets 101 staff will begin a countdown of topics related to the New York Mets (i.e. best third baseman, worst defeat, etc.). We will begin our countdowns with the number seven and work all the way to number one. This week's Seven in Seven list is a jammer, as we will break down the greatest concerts at both Shea Stadium and Citi Field of all time. We continue our countdown with The Rolling Stones Shea Stadium six sold-out nights in 1989.

4. The Rolling Stones
