I figured I could always buy a ticket outside the stadium on show date and that is precisely what we did. I just needed to convince a colleague of mine that seeing the Rolling Stones would be a worthwhile experience. I will simply never get tired of seeing this band which I saw for the first time 40 years ago at Madison Square Garden. The absolute best moment of the show was when announced that they would play the winner of the fan voted song as they have done in recent years.
It was great - I wish they had played it for more than the 30 seconds or so that they did. My life-long dream will come to fruition in about 5 weeks when I bring my family to Indianapolis and my 13 year old daughter will get an opportunity to see The World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band.
I don't care that she does not care - it means a lot to me to bring her. It does not seem possible. Large strange crowd with a hillbilly warm-up act, Kid Rack. But Mick Jagger never sounded better and absolutely nailed Wild Horses. Woody did a pretty nice job playing the steel on Happy but it got a bit disorganized at the end.
Jagger played the crowd for all he was worth. Miss You seemed a bit like a Darryl Jones bass feature; the other instruments were almost inaudible. Jagger kind of fudged the end of Midnight Rambler which is more seemly I suppose.
The oldies were a kick, both Spend the Night and Satisfaction. The audience helped out plenty with Honky Tonk Women. Ohio U. Fun show. Charlie's still on his game and the guitarists got some good licks in and Mick seems ageless. Well Columbus rolling stones feels long ago, it is 44 years to be exact. Then they did "Bitch", with Ronnie and Keith driving the guitars strong and loud. Mick then said "colour", he was all in black clothing by then. He rushed to the set of shirts hanging next to Chuck, looking quickly through various colours, and picked a red one.
Columbus rolling stones, as he Columbus rolling stones standing up front, putting on the shirt, he said, sort of thinking: "They say Columbus is the fashion capital of the United States! Mick used the catwalk all the time. I was right next to it, and it seemed that he stopped by on almost every song, often on the move out to the crowd using the extended stage. This was the 2nd show of the tour. They rocked Ohio. People came from all parts of Ohio, and Mick thanked the Ohio fans for supporting them since their first Ohio show in That is 51 years ago folks!
They will visit 12 more states in USA, plus one show in Canada on this tour. If you have a ticket, lucky you, if not, get a ticket. This is a performance not to be missed. The naysayers claimed that this show would never sell out. The naysayers claimed Kid Rock was a downright horrible choice as an opener. The naysayers predicted rain and wind and lightning and disaster.
The naysayers said the setlist would disappoint the crowd. And the naysayers claimed that this tour would crash and burn without the "other Mick. And neither do I! First off, the entire stadium was jammed from the floor to the upper decks. I'm not exactly sure how the promoters did it, but Ohio Stadium was a madhouse. Was it the Lucky Dip low price ticket strategy? Last minute papering? Genius marketing? Or just the plain and simple fact that people still want to see The Stones! Kid Rock blasted through an incredibly well-recieved hit-filled abbreviated version of his touring show in about 50 minutes.
He's talented and so is his band which looks remarkably like the Stones' own traveling company complete with backup vocals and Columbus rolling stones. He hit hard and hit fast and payed his respects to his elders. A perfect warm-up. With a nod to this "dream" gig, he announced that The Rolling Stones would be up next and was gone. I'll leave the set-list breakdown to the others but here's a few of my observations: The opening video for this tour is fantastic and when Keith took his position for 'Jumping Jack Flash' we were off!
What a great and loud opening. While I truly love 'Doom and Gloom', its probably run its course as a live tune. Relevant during the last U. Its simple deletion wouldn't be missed. Is it me, or was that the longest version of 'Happy' ever?! Keith just didn't seem to want to give this one up and it was wonderful! Goose-bump inducing brilliance. And then you have 'Midnight Rambler' On the '50 and Counting Tour', I felt that the addition of Mick Taylor was the sole reason for this song's magic. He is as captivating and mesmerizing on this song as humanly possible.
Is he human? I could watch this man play harmonica and prance and growl these lines every night for the rest of my life. As the full moon peeked through the clouds during 'Sympathy', I realized that we were not going to get the over-dramaticly predicted rain and at that moment it hit me.
The Rolling Stones are at their best in a massive outdoor stadium packed to the rafters. With the enormous video screens and the huge stage deck to roam, Jagger makes the entire building come alive. When he waves those hands or points those fingers or shakes those hips in any general direction of the crowd, full sections of people go absolutely bonkers.
Its impossible not to watch him work his magic. Its heart-warming too corny? Sure, we get a few clunks from our hero's guitar every now and then. Even a look of chagrin. But then Ronnie will seriously come blasting in to the rescue. Or Charlie will kick it up a notch. Or Mick shifts directions and all is right with the world again. Our world. The Rolling Stones are on tour in the summertime in America in In outdoor stadiums.
Where they belong. Get a ticket and go. Drive, bike, or hitchhike. Or charter your private plane ; The absolute power of The Stones in a stadium in undeniable. Photos by Kurt Schwarz Review by Robert Bagel It was great to see the Stones back in America, and in a huge stadium where their skills of showmanship are best on display. Sadly this is the same show we have seen since There is nothing adventurous or that uniquely exciting to talk about. Even the exciting concept of playing an album in its entirety was not carried out, with Bitch and Wild Horses the two selections from Sticky Fingers.
As any long time Stones fan knows, these songs have been staples for years. I did not miss the special guest element of the 50th anniversary shows and tours, though that was always an interesting part of the evening. It was good to see the band work as the great band they are, in a mode that focused on music rather than celebrity. And as spectacular as he is, Mick Taylor was not missed. Ronnie handled everything extremely well, and even had a larger than usual, impressive presence during Midnight Rambler. Oh how I missed Bobby Keys! Karl Denson seems like a competent session player, but he brought nothing unique in his playing listen to Beast of Burden from the tour, with Ernie Watts on sax--it Columbus rolling stones distinct and interesting.
When it was time for the sax solo on Brown Sugar, Mr. Denson did well enough, but I was now reminded of how that soulful blare of Keys now belongs to the ages rather than belonging to this balmy night in Ohio. So it was great to see the Stones back, Mick and Keith seemingly more at peace with each other on stage than ever, and the band doing what they do best playing to a large stadium.
But these artists were known as some of the most innovative and creative musicians ever, and to play nothing but old songs OK, Gloom and Doom is a mere three years old seems like a waste of their well known talent. Springsteen, McCartney, even Willie Nelson have recently put out new material. As much as I enjoy the shows, I just think we could be getting so much more.
The Rolling Stones Theatre in Branson, Missouri is yet to be a reality and yes, I'd probably head to Branson for a few nights of thatbut the stock setlist and lack of imagination tonight Columbus rolling stones me think Zip Code is certainly seeing the band take that direction. Photos by Bjornulf Vik Review by Dave Kohl I'll start by borrowing a sports term and saying that the Stones are already in mid-season form. If you see or hear songs from the Columbus show, you would swear they had been playing for weeks or months, and never know it has only been just over one week.
The set list loaded with familiar tunes was performed with plenty of energy throughout. My hunch is that without the rarely played gems, it allowed the band to put more energy in to everything instead of being on auto-pilot in between the "different" songs. Keith was solid and smiling a lot throughout. Ronnie took charge and appeared more comfortable with his role than I recall from the tour.
And the large Columbus crowd was perhaps the most enthusiastic crowd I have been among for a Stones show in quite some time. Perhaps having thousands more reasonably priced tickets helped to bring out the casual fans. The crowd was clearly singing along with so many of the songs, with even the "wooo woooooo" starting on Sympathy before Mick sang one word, and even the "Have you heard about the Boston? It isn't often that the more commonly played songs are three of my personal big 4 highlights of the show, but that's what happened.
The opener of Jumpin' Jack Flash included an extra part toward the end that picked up the energetic opening even more. Best version I have seen since the Licks tour, and a great way to kick of a great night. Tumbling Dice was beefed toward the end with less emphasis on the horns and more on the "woo hooooo" vocals which made this one of the better recent versions as well.
Gimme Shelter is always a highlight, but with Lisa and Mick both out the on walkway during their parts of the song and a strong guitar lead from Keith made this version one to remember. Keith played the main guitar solo a bit more soulfully than usual, more like the way he played it on his solo tours, and it mixed in really well. My biggest highlight, once again as it was every show I saw in Columbus rolling stones is Midnight Rambler.
I wasn't sure it would come off as well as last tour with Mick Taylor on it, and didn't even watch the video clip from San Diego, figuring I would rather see it live for myself. Mick's harmonica spot early on was nailed to the wall. Probably the best one I have ever seen or heard.Columbus rolling stones
