June 17 - Nashville tonight!!

=> First reviews! From what I have seen and heard via Periscope, that show was a killer! After the 5 day break, the band seemed really tight and demanding. They played very well, loud and clear. Since the last tours, their sound is much louder, guitars very much in front, which gives you the impression to listen to a garage band. What they really are, in a way, at least from their more traditional point of view, so to speak. No gimmicks, just the band and you can hear every little fault or scratch in their play. That happend last night, of cause, but only to a minor degree. They really played very well, the solos came blistering and fine and the whole band was on fire. Here's what the press reports so far: Rolling Stones give fans rock ‘n roll at LP Field, and they like it (wkrn.com) | Brad Paisley Joins The Rolling Stones For Dead Flowers In Nashville (noise11.com) | Rolling Stones take over LP Field (wsmv.com) | The Rolling Stones' age-defying victory lap returns to Nashville (nashvillescene.com) | Rolling Stones saxophonist remembered at Mercy Lounge tribute (tennessean.com) | Sticky Fingers Re-Release at #5 in the charts!

=> The Rolling Stones at AT&T Stadium: Jagger's moves, Richards' grooves and a whole lot of Texas love (guidelive.com)
=> Rolling Stones at AT&T Stadium (startelegram.com) - nice review! Here's a quote: "... Watching Jagger, throwing little harmonica stabs at the beginning of Midnight Rambler, physically react to Richards’ downstroke of the song’s indelible riff, as Wood began playing guitar behind Jagger, was to see molecules shift and a chemical reaction transpire before your eyes — the song, from 1969’s Let It Bleed, literally popped to life, a great, churning, greasy blues that built up to a gloriously messy climax. ..."

The "Only if needed" is hilarious, IMHO.

=> The Rolling Stones rolled into the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach Wednesday night for an encore performance at a private show,  but it was an invitation only event and only a few lucky individuals were able to go inside the Belly Up Tavern to see the show. Sources said Rancho Santa Fe resident Ralph Whitworth paid at least $2 million for the concert as a celebration for his current wife. Whitworth is the same person who paid $1 million to have Paul McCartney play at his then wife's 50th birthday a few years ago...

=> Bernard Fowler will be at the Thunderpussy Record store in Columbus at 6pm tomorrow. He'll be there and sign your copy of his new album "The Bura". (Short North, 1155 N High St, Columbus, Oh 43201) [thx Michelejagger, sdb]

WHEN: TONIGHT
ONSALE: TODAY AT 12 NOON PT, ONLY AT rollingstones.com
Show time: 8 PM // Doors open at 6:30 PM // No line-ups prior to 5:30 PM

=> Yes, it's today and the re-release of Sticky Fingers will play a role! Apparently, there's a filmcrew at the theatre and maybe there is a broadcast later [thx paperposter, sdb]. That could point less to a simple warm-up gig but more to a kind of DVD production or something. The filming is done by JA Digital from London, UK. Local station announced that show without mentioning tickets [thx Fonda, sdb]. Maybe it's on invitation only, like the gig at the Beacon...

=> OPENING ACTS: Brad Paisley in NASHVILLE, Kid Rock in OHIO, St. Paul and the Broken Bones in ATLANTA and BUFFALO, Buddy Guy in MILWAUKEE, Gary Clark Jr in SAN DIEGO, Grace Potter in DALLAY [thx Chris!], Ed Sheeran in KANSAS CITY, Awolnation in PITTSBURGH, Walk The Moon in DETROIT

=> Only a few days left before the tour starts: it's about time for another surprise gig of the Rolling Stones in LA/Hollywood! Some rumors point to the Fonda Theatre, but that's not certain. In less than 24 hours, we will know for sure! I'm so much enjoying the excitement growing again just before all of this happens. Tons of good luck to all of you who are in the area and are prepared to join in the right queue! Send in some lines, post some pics, TWEET TO STONESNEWS, if possible, and let's share the fun!

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 ...
