What a night! What a gig! What a band!!
Below are the videos and some pics from last night’s gig. As for the press, not only the new album gets great reviews, but the band too. Quite a bunch of celebs were seen there, among them Daniel Craig, Mary Kate Olsen, Chris Rock, Jimmy Fallon, Trevor Noah, Taylor Hill, Rachel Weisz, Christie Brinkley, Ed Burns, Keegan-Michael Key, Minka Kelly, Christy Turlington, and Andrew Watt and Elvis Costello and Diana Krall.
There’s a great review in Rolling Stone, of which I quote only a few words as appetizer:
“... Tonight, however, there weren’t any signs of rust … the songs crackled with life on the stage … even though they played a mere seven songs, nobody walked out looking unhappy … Everyone knew they’d just witnessed something historic … This is a colossal achievement that nobody expected from a group that started when JFK was president… the Rolling Stones proved tonight that there’s at least one more great chapter to come before this whole saga wraps up“
“The group’s impressively lively new album would bring a jolt to their familiar setlist and they were well-rehearsed if not yet tour-tight … Jagger defies biology, incredibly lithe and elastic … Thursday night’s show suggests that something else might be beginning soon“
