Folks, what can I say. Dynamite show in Liverpool, really!
It’s just wonderful, insane, crazy, far out, hilarious and jaw-dropping: The Rolling Stones delivered in Liverpool one of the best shows, people have seen. That’s what folks say who have been there and who have seen many shows of this band. And even I (and you), following the streams as they came and were, could tell that this show was right on the spot. The band is in a fine mood and really playing tight, rocking for 2 hours straight. Again: wonderful. How proud we can be, to be fans for 60 years of such an extraordinary phenomenon like The Rolling Stones, fuck yeah.
Let’s see, what the press has to say. And below you’ll find the setlist with videos, as far as I could find ’em.
11 Connection – at the start, Keith had problems with his guitar. So he turns towards Steve, signalling him he has troubles and they should stop and restart the song. But Stve just kept on drumming. Meanwhile, Ronnie realised that there was some things going on. As the drumming kept on, Keith gave in and started to sing the song without playing his guitar while Ronnie covered his ass by trying to play both of their parts at once. Really cute. And one of the essential moments where you see the band staying tight, holding ground while the shit hits the fan. Wonderful. That’s why Keith says after thanking the crows that “Shit happens”…
12 Miss You
13 Midnight Rambler
14 Start Me Up
15 Paint It Black
16 Sympathy For The Devil
17 Jumping Jack Flash
I chose this video although it has only meagre sound quality. But the thing is: you can hear Keith hitting his Fender Tele ‘pada-baaaah, pada-baaahhh’ after the chorus in such a manner that you can get the idea how it hits you when you’re at the gig. I just love that power of JJF, really a true highlight at this place just before the encores …
The Stones played again for 2 solid hours and 19 songs in Munich! First comments about the show tell of great and clear sound with the guitars strong in the mix (as it should be!), a great show and that the band was on fire. This for the good part.
The not-so-good part was that because of the weather conditions, they had to postpone the entrance by one hour. Then many folks with tickets couldn’t get in for the show start because queues were too long. That was not at all well managed. And then, for us folks looking on via the net, we could hardly find any stream to take part as the show rolled on.
The Rolling Stones play the Olympiastadium in Munich tonight.
Sure enough, we are going to follow this show as much as possible, although we’re not actually there. According to tweets, it has stopped raining! Reef rocked nicely, so now all are waiting for the Stones! Still some people are in cue for the LD tickets… curfew is 11PM.
In the gallery below you can see Jesse Wood meeting his father backstage; it’s also partly kind of a setlist spoiler, so if you still want to keep the secret, then you should not click for the bigger version… 😉
Weather forecast predicts better conditions for the evening:
Concert promoters PGM tell this about changed opening times and the schedule:
TONIGHT’S CONCERT – THE ROLLING STONES – OLYMPIASTADION: ADMISSION
STARTS ONE HOUR LATER AT 6 PM
Due to the announced bad weather conditions with heavy rain, lightning and storm gusts this afternoon, the admission of the Rolling Stones concert at Munich’s Olympiastadion will be postponed by one hour from 5 to 6 pm.
This measure serves to protect the fans and all those involved in the production.
The Rolling Stones concert is currently scheduled to begin at 8:45 pm.
We ask all fans to adapt their clothing to the weather situation and to think of rain jackets, rain ponchos or similar. ATTENTION: Umbrellas are not allowed in the stadium!
The Olympiapark in Munich has two interesting webcams for us: once there, check out ‘Olympiastadion (West)’ and ‘Olympiastadion (Süd)’.
As for the weather forcast for today, the article TZ.de raises fears about severe weather conditions. Let’s hope for the best for the two most important hours this evening in Munich! I’ll keep you posted.
Yesterday, Keith congrats Charlie to his birthday:
What a night is was and what a show the bad put on!
Judging even from the so-so ‘quality’ of the streams yesterday, I for one had the impression, that the band played really well, tight and loud. The setlist, too, added to the fun. In a nutshell, they really surprised me. Especially Keith played very well. I think, his playing has improoved considerably.
And here’s the setlist with the YT videos I found so far!!
