Ronnie at Shepherd’s Bush

Ronnie Wood, The Mad Lads, Shepherds Bush Empire, November 21, 2019

Ronnie just yesterday played the Shepherd’s Bush Empire

He’s on tour in the UK with Ben Waters on piano and the Mad Lads in honor of Chuck Berry. From the comments in the social media, that gig must have been a great joy for most of the lucky ones who got tickets.

For Ian Gittins from theguardian.com, however, that show was Ronnie’s ‘mediocre homage‘ to Chuck, mostly so because of his lack of vocal brilliance. That’s a standpoint to be considered hitting a truth here, but, IMHO, just (slightly?) misses the point, when it comes down to plain, bare-bone Rock ‘N’ Roll. This music just doesn’t needs nice, classical vocals, although it helps sometimes, hehehe. So Ian writes:

While his love for Berry is palpable, his flat vocal on Little Queenie is valiant rather than virtuoso. On Don’t You Lie to Me, he is near inaudible, buried beneath the gnarly 12-bar riffs.

Well, listen to Exile, and you’ll have plenty of vocals buried deep in riffs, hehehe…

And here’s another review by Christiana Ferrauti from theupcoming.co.uk with a slightly other bend: Ronnie Wood offers Chuck Berry an energetic tribute at Shepherd’s Bush Empire

Ok, on with the show. Here’s 4 pics by by Ollie Millington which Ronnie tweeted and some more from the social media:

Ronnie plays Chuck

Mad Lad:a Live Tribute to Chuck Berry

Great music from a legend of Rock ‘N’ Roll, played by the Mad Lads!

Especially see/hear Ronnie, Imelda and the Mad Lads play 3 songs live on the radio! and see them perform Johnny B. Goode at BBC2!

Jim Hynes from the Elmore Magazine writes about Ronnie’s and the Mad Lad’s album:

Among the highlights are Imelda May’s rousing bluesy take on Berry’s “Wee Wee Hours,” Wood’s slide guitar playing on the title track and May again, this time bringing a splendid vocal on “Rock and Roll Music.” May also sings on “Almost Grown.” The energy throughout is strong with an engaged audience on familiar fare like “Back in the USA,” “Little Queenie” and “Johnny B. Goode.” Thankfully we’ll be hearing at least two more installments from this kick-ass band, honoring other musical heroes. Wood is a living legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. He does one of biggest mentors proud with this live set.

Bridges To Buenos Aires

Finally, we get on of the argentinian conderts in full length!

It’s been restored in full, and features a very special guest appearance from Bob Dylan.

Filmed on April 5th 1998, by this point, the band had played to over two million people on the first two legs of the tour in North America and Japan. Amongst many highlights in this show, special guest Bob Dylan joins the band onstage at River Plate for a unique performance of his classic ‘Like A Rolling Stone’.

The band only played a further two dates in South America on the triumphant, year long Bridges To Babylon tour, before they headed back to North America, and Europe.

Last show of The Rolling Stones’ US No Filter Tour 2019 took them to the Hard Rock stadium, Miami, Florida, August 30.

The Miami New Times wrote: Despite the Threat of Dorian, the Rolling Stones Perform at Hard Rock Stadium

Not wanting to leave anything up to chance, the Rolling Stones pushed the Miami date of their No Filter Tour up a date to avoid a cancelation due to Hurricane Dorian. On Friday, August 30, fans poured into the Hard Rock Stadium to see the iconic rock back deliver another amazing performance, with Mick Jagger in fine form despite the fact that the North American Tour was postponed due to Jagger’s heart surgery. The Miami shows served as the final stop of the tour that began in Europe.
