The Rolling Stones resume their tour (test)
The Stones are on fire once again.
The "world's greatest rock 'n' roll band" resumed its StonesOnFire tour, part of its 50th anniversary celebration, in late May. The return to the stage came two months after the death of Mick Jagger's girlfriend, fashion designer L'Wren Scott. (Scott's death was ruled a suicide. She had been with Jagger since 2003).
"I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way," Jagger said in a statement at the time. "We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves."
The Stones were touring Australia at the time of Scott's death, and consequently canceled seven shows there and in New Zealand. Those shows have been rescheduled for October and November, according to the band's website.
The group returned from their hiatus with a show in Oslo. Norway. The set list included "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "All Down the Line," "Let's Spend the Night Together," "Emotional Rescue" and "You Can't Always Get What You Want" (backed by the Edvard Grieg Youth Choir). And speaking of special guests, Bruce Springsteen joined the band on stage for "Tumbling Dice" during the recent Rock in Rio festival in Portugal.
The Rolling Stones recently made headlines when they returned to Berlin after nearly half a century for a concert at the legendary Waldbuhne. Fans in the capital gathered in soaring temperatures to see the legendary band, with all 22,000 tickets having sold out within minutes of going on sale. The Stones last played Berlin in 1965. That concert infamously ended in a riot and the venue later had to be closed for repairs.
About The Rolling Stones
Who would've thought that the (self-proclaimed) World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band, a tour de force in the late 1960s, would still be owning the stage some 50 years later?
If you haven't seen The Rolling Stones live, you haven't missed your chance. Currently crisscrossing the globe on their 50th anniversary show tour, the band is still putting on a two-hour-and-15-minute show that would make artists half their age tired. There was Mick Jagger, for instance, at the tail end of a set on the second night of back-to-back shows in Philadelphia, still running and dancing along a tongue-shaped walkway into the audience. And if you didn't know the man was pushing 70 years of age, you'd have never guessed.
The Stones, quite simply, pioneered hard-driving, blues-based rock & roll. And with frontman Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, they've showcased what seems to be an ever-lasting endurance as the stalwart (and now elder statesmen) of the "British Invasion" of the '60s. From an original lineup that included Brian Jones, Ian Stewart, Bill Wyman, Mick Taylor, Dick Taylor and Tony Chapman, the Stones have truly left their mark on music.
Behind songs like "Get Off of My Cloud," "Emotional Rescue," "Tumbling Dice," "Gimme Shelter," "Brown Sugar," "It's Only Rock & Roll (But I Like It)," "Start Me Up" and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," the Stones have released 24 studio albums, eleven live albums and numerous compilations to date. "Sticky Fingers" (1971) was the first of their eight consecutive chart-topping albums in the U.S., with the last being "Tattoo You" in 1981. Their most current album to date, 2005's "A Bigger Bang," could be their last.
The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004. They ranked fourth on Rolling Stone magazine's "100 Greatest Artists of All Time" list, and their album sales are in excess of $200 million. If you haven't seen them live, check out their upcoming show in Hyde Park in London on July 13.
