by Brian Shamie
Can’t stop the Stones
Mere months after the Rolling Stones announced the postponement of the band’s “No Filter Tour” due to frontman Mick Jagger’s heart surgery, the seemingly unstoppable musical legends are back in action. The band launches the rescheduled tour dates with two performances at Chicago’s Soldier Field Friday, June 21, and Tuesday, June 25.
2120Joe [iorr] posted the list of songs they rehearsed so far yesterday:
Street Fighting Man
Under My Thumb
Sad Sad Sad (2x)
YCAGWYW (just short, no guitars)
Sympathy – just short
– about a quater of an hour pause –
Keith set: You Got The Silver, Bevore They Make Me Run
Out Of Control
Ride’em On Down
Mercy Mercy (2 times, short)
Another of our friends, swimtothemoon, posted that Mick was not holding back and that his vocals as well as his harmonica playing “were both spot-on and full of energy” – well, that indeed sounds very promising and is very welcomed!
