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. […]
