So, yet another Rolling Stones show. For a number of years now they had been rehearsing and playing a secret club gig in our fair city. That was the thing about this tour. In the larger markets they would play a club gig, an arena gig and a stadium gig. While we missed out on the club gig Rhonda and I still managed to catch the arena an stadium gigs. This was the arena gig. The beauty of the arena gigs was that, while they wouldn’t play a shit load of rarities, they would, nonetheless not trot out an entire set of the old tried and true war horses.

This show started off with Street Fighting Man, a single originally released around the time of their Beggar’s Banquet release. Keith played the riff several times and then promptly took a header. After a beat or two long time base player Darryl Jones loaned him a helping hand to get him back on his feet. All was good. As you can probably tell from my list, I’ve long kept track of the headliners set list for any given show. I’ve also coveted any song played that I have never had the privilege of hearing live before. For me, this show was a veritable goldmine.

I heard If You Can’t Rock Me, Thru and Thru, Can’t You Hear Me Knocking, Mannish Boy and Neighbors for the very first time. All in all, not too shabby.
