June 29 – The Rolling Stones play Canada again!

What a joy to see the band playing live and so well the last two gigs. The band’s on fire and athough it’s their 57th year as a band playing live, they sound better than ever. Like in Europe, they mix the guitars way up front, exspecially so on JJF or Street Fighting Man – it just rings in your ear and it comes over really heavy. Old dudes play Rock’nRonn in your face and it’s rough, dirty and loud! – Just as it should!

So let’s get dressed up for tonight and hope for some decent streams to follow the band and the lucky fans at the show!

Chicago II aftermath

The Rolling Stones – Chicago June 25, 2019

June 26 – Chicago II aftermath

You were there? Got some review or story to tell? Well, SEND IT TO ME! 🙂

What a great concert! This time, there were fewer streams, but nevertheless, I/we could follow basically the whole set.

Hilarious moment was, when Keith started with Midnight Rambler although he had been handed the guitar for Paint It Black (Telecaster with capo on the 2nd fret) and the whole band, although a bit puzzled, joined in. Charlie bashed on in and Mick sang the first two lines, although apparently a little irritated. While singing, he went over to Chuck and he was heard to ask Chuck: twice “Is it the wrong key?

Then the band stopped and Mick grinned and went back to center stage – “Sorry, I’m sorry…” Then he hugged Keith who came towards him because he, too, had realised that there was something wrong. Mick said: “It’s alright, Keith … it’s ok …” and to the audience: “It’s only the second night … and it’s only one fuck-up!” And then Keith also greets the audience and Mick goes on: “I think, we’re supposed to be doing Paint It Black!” Then Keith plays the intro and the band rolls on.

I just love them! 🙂

Again, it’s going to be an early wake call up for me: as I’ll join in to the fun as the Stones play their second gig in Chicago tonight, I will get up at 1:30 or 2:00 AM over here at my home in order to be there in time to update the Stonesnews_pages.

Some tours ago, I swore to myself, that I won’t miss a show of this band as long as they still play live. Up to now, I could fulfill this oath and I intend to keep it! 🙂

So tonight we’ll get treated with another show and hopefully many nice streams via Periscope or Facebook as before, so that we can follow the show even if we’re not there in person.

=> They have a great poster for tonight’s gig: a beautifully colored Telecaster!

Meanwhile, Ronnie has shared with us the sectrets of his warming-up procedure:

The Press – Ronnie: Mick + new album

Ronnie with The Sun's Showbiz Features Editor Stuart Pink

June 25 – The english tabloid The Sun issued an interview with Ronnie two days ago.

Ok, that’s not particularly the latest news, but then I seem to have overlooked that bit. But it is quite nice and thus recommended to read, much more so because it’s not just like 10, 15 lines of text but quite a bit more to read. So here are just two little exerpts:

Ronnie on Mick:

The doctors said they’ve never operated on an athlete at 75 before — we had a really good laugh about that. [ … ] He’s just so fit, he sets aside three hours a day to do exercise and that’s done him plenty of favours in later life. He’s superhuman really.

Ronnie about (new) music:

It’s like a medicine. We don’t like to stop working. All being well, there’ll be a new album and a new tour. [ … ] It will be great — but let’s get this one over with first.

thesun.co.uk has the complete article, that also appeared at foxnews.com

New Book: the Stones in NYC

Can't give it away on seventh avenue - by Christopher McKittrick

June 25 – there’s a new Stones-book for us!

It’s called “CAN’T GIVE IT AWAY ON SEVENTH AVENUE” and is written by Christopher McKittrick.

The subtitle reads: THE ROLLING STONES IN NEW YORK CITY.

Can't give it away on seventh avenue - by Christopher McKittrick
Can’t give it away on seventh avenue – by Christopher McKittrick

Data:

  • Paperback: 256 pages, $12,60  at Amazon
  • Kindle: Amazon
  • Barnes&Noble: NOOK Book (eBook), $9,99
  • Publisher: Post Hill Press (25. Juni 2019)
  • ISBN-10: 1642930393
  • ISBN-13: 978-1642930399

And here is the complete info:

A complete history of The Rolling Stones in New York City.

When the Rolling Stones first arrived at JFK Airport in June 1964, they hadn’t even had a hit record in America. By the end of the decade, they were mobbed by packed audiences at Madison Square Garden and were the toast of New York City’s media and celebrity scene.

More than fifty years later, the history of New York City and the Rolling Stones have entwined and paralleled, with the group playing in nearly all of the Big Apple’s legendary venues. Along the way Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and the rest of the Stones have left an impact on the culture of the city, from the turbulent “Fun City” of the 1960s and ’70s through the twenty-first century. The evolving career of the Stones has often reflected the cultural changes of the city, as the Stones and their music were the center of social and political controversies during the same era that New York faced similar challenges.

Can’t Give It Away on Seventh Avenue: The Rolling Stones and New York City explores the history of the group through the prism of New York. It is a highly detailed document of the dynamic and reciprocal relationship between the world’s most famous band and America’s most famous city as well as an absorbing chronicle of the remarkable impact the city has had on the band’s music and career.

Chicago II – song vote is up!

The Rambler is on tour again!

June 22 – The fucking Midnight Rambler is the bloody dark heart of the gig

That’s IMHO, of course, folks. And here it is, right from the opening night, a bit shakey at times, but it got all the basics the Rambler needs. The end is a bit rough, though, just a few seconds too early, but that doesn’t matter.

As this tour goes on, there will be a nice grow of this mini-rock’n’roll opera, and it will be the highlight of each show for the fans.

Just to remember what it’s all about, you’ll find the lyrics of that song (recommended read) just below the video! Enjoy:

Did you hear about the midnight rambler?
Everybody got to go
Did you hear about the midnight rambler?
The one that shut the kitchen door
He don't give you a hoot of a warning
Wrapped up in a black cat cloak
He don't go in the light of the morning
He split the time the cock'rel crows

I'm talkin' 'bout the midnight gambler
The one you never seen before
Yeah, I'm talkin' 'bout the midnight gambler
Did you see him jump the garden wall?
Sighin' down the wind so sadly
Listen and you'll hear him moan
Well, I'm talkin' about the midnight gambler
Everybody got to go


Did you hear about the midnight rambler?
Well, honey, it's no rock 'n' roll show
Well, I'm talkin' about the midnight gambler
Yeah, the one you never seen before

Don't you do that
Don't do that
Don't you do that
Don't you, don't you do that
Don't you, don't you do that

[...]

Well, you heard about the Boston... ! (Strangler, that is)
It's not one of those
Well, I'm talkin' 'bout the midnight
The one that closed the bedroom door
I'm called the hit-and-run raper in anger
The knife-sharpened tippie-toe
Or just the shoot 'em dead, brainbell jangler
You know, the one you never seen before

So if you ever meet the midnight rambler
I'm coming down your marble hall
Well, he's pouncing like a proud black panther
Well, you can say I, I told you so
Well, don't listen for the midnight rambler
Play it easy, as you go
I'm gonna smash down all your plate glass windows
Put a fist, put a fist through your steel-plated door

Did you hear about the midnight rambler?
He'll leave his footprints up and down your hall
And did you hear about the midnight gambler?
And did you see me make my midnight call?
And if you ever catch the midnight rambler
I'll steal your mistress from under your nose
I'll go easy with your cold fanged anger
I'll stick my knife right down your throat, baby
And it hurts!

Tour Kick-Off!

June 20 – nice interview with Ronnie

‘We thank our lucky stars’: Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood on Jagger’s return

He tells  about the days when Mick came over with the news he had to undergo surgery.

“He called us to his room, we knew it was something serious,” Wood recalled. “I think he needed a bit of support, which we gave him.” […] “We’ll step up to the bar, I hope,” he says. “The way rehearsals were sounding… we’re ready. We just need an audience now.”

Then, he also had something to tell about the tour and the stage which will feature a second stage for an acoustic set!

They’ve been testing out a secondary stage where the band will migrate for an acoustic set that features “Play with Fire” and “Sweet Virginia,” Wood said.  “We’ll suddenly be among the people who thought they had bad seats,” he joked. “We’ll be revisiting songs from way back when, which I’m really excited about.”

Tour Sponsor Alliance for Lifetime Income

June 20 – Recommended Read

(Just 1 day to go! Yeeehaaaaw!)

  • The bizjournals.com has this headline: Give it up for The Rolling Stones! Also, does your retirement plan include annuities?

It’s interesting to read about this tour’s sponsor, which is, unlikely as it seems, a non-profit organisation!
Quote:

[…] The unlikely subject matter marriage of the talents behind “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” and “Paint It Black” and a relatively small but growing financial insurance product comes courtesy of the D.C.-based annuities education and advocacy nonprofit group the Alliance for Lifetime Income. The group of insurance and annuities providers is, somewhat remarkably, the sole sponsor of The Rolling Stone’s No Filter tour of North America. […]

Chicago – the stage grows!

Chicago – the stage grows!

June 18 – The stage is being set up

UPDATE (about 4:30 pm): according to the man on the scene, 2020Joe, they also played Street Fighting Man, Under My Thumb, 2 times Sad Sad Sad, a short YCAGWYW without guitar and Angie … the opening video was also played/tested ..

UPDATE (about 4pm and later, Chicago time): apparently, the band is on styge right now, rehearsing Tumbling Dice (thx 2120Joe, iorr) and (I’m sure) other songs – they usually do this before gigs, so that the crew has a test for all the lightning and video features which have to work perfectly at showtime! Today it might just be a loose soundcheck, tomorrow or the day after they will do the ‘dress rehearsal’ and will play an extended set – er, I mean, they usually do … 🙂

erbissell [iorr] sent us this b/w update – thx! – check out the huge PIT… it’s definitely bigger than in EU

 

Oh what a sight! I so much wish to be there!

The construction is well developed, it seems. It’s the same set-up we have seen in Europe lately – it’s fantastic! Those screens are just huge and wonderful – and the crew nicely uses it throughout the concert. You will love it! 🙂
