Nay 19 - The Worst

=> OMG - Here we have Keith singing "The Worst" from last nights gig - if you ever want to get as close to the band as possible - this is your chance:

May 18 - Opening show aftermath

=> What a show it was - even from here without actually being there! Ok - to be honest, I had expected them to play some more new songs after all they had played during the rehearsals. In Hamburg 2017, for instance, they played 22 songs (see stonesnews for the setlist, right down the page); so I thought, they'ld do something similar in Dublin. But we got Neighbours and Wild Horses and we will hear more of these gems as the tour continues.

Then, we got some reviews:

April 20 - The band in Dublin

=> Preperations for the tour begin to take shape - booze ban before the opening night! Production manager Dale Skjerseth gave some interviews now that the the tourstart is getting closer. He's cited by papers like The Independent (IE) and The Irish Sun where he said:

"We start rehearsals next week and we are getting ready. It's a big show, we have 25 production trucks and we're around two hundred people touring with the entourage. All the excitement is around the beginning, especially the guys. [...] They're getting ready. They're working out and doing their routines. Band rehearsals go on for two weeks where they will play for a good four or five hours and play many different songs. [...] It will be their longest set because they will try out different things. We figure two hours to two and a half hours".
He also said that there will be no booze before the gig. Well - that's good news: the lads are focused and serious about playing Croke Park. But then - they always were, no matter where it was, right? Dale also mentioned that we can expect a longer setlist for the opening night than on the following dates of the tour as the band will try out severaly songs as to how they fit into the setlists - like they did in Hamburg last year.
It's also reported that a limited number of premium tickets from the venue and a limited number of pit tickets are being released for sale.
Can we expect some of our irish friends to be there and give reports from the rehearsals? Please do! Send infos to us so we can follow the proceedings.

July 20, 2011 (and for eternity) - The Rolling Stones, Sticky Fingers And The Lost Photo Session

Ok, this comes a bit late. But since there are no more news about the possible gigs for Hide Park or anything like a tour in 2012 right now, I thought we could use the occasion and look back over yonder...

Recently, a treasure of photographs were discoverd after photographer Peter Webb's negatives went missing after shooting the Stones for that monster record "Sticky Fingers". Then, out of nowhere, they are re-discovered after a gap of almost 40 years. Let's have a look... oh man, have a look at Keith's eyes ...
