The Rolling Stones hit The Linc tomorrow night with their No Filter tour and we are ready for ’em! MGK has tons of Stones mx for ya AND a live broadcast with Andre pre-show. I love that this tour is being sponsored by a retirement planning company. Makes sense!
My friend Mo was at the New Orleans show (which FINALLY happened after being postponed twice, once for Mick’s heart business and then for severe weather conditions). See his review of the show below.
By the way, each night there’s a wild card selection. You can vote on one of four songs to be played. For tomorrow night, those songs are: Respectable, Bitch, Ain’t Too Proud to Beg and Have Mercy. (I’m pulling for Respectable). You can vote here.
“Ok sooooo… The Rolling Stones are and always will be the coolest cats in the room. At mid 70’s plus years old you gotta grade their performance on a curve. Yes it’s impressive they can remember all of those hit songs, yes it’s impressive that Mick can run that half marathon around their massive stage setup. They are still a rock n roll band. All that aside, what made the experience memorable came down to a few moments, one being when they came all the way up to the top of the runway jutting out into the crowd and proceeded to play a cpl songs, standing huddled not but a few feet from each other. Even in the massive space that is the Superdome, it felt intimate for us and, for what it looked like, them. Additions like Karl Denson, saxophone virtuoso and an absolutely killer supporting cast of back up vocalists, bass and keyboard players, naturally filled in the blanks and generationally integrated the performance. All in all, The Stones are still “wobbly” but it’s that fallibility and realness that has endeared them to their audience these 50 plus years. True talk though, Ron Wood had the best chops of the lot, I might be biased though cuz The Faces always really did “it” for me. Reporting to you live from New Orleans, the big easy, the crescent city, this is Mo Hodges. Cheers!”
