Reseña de Bjornulf Vik, IORR

Los Rolling Stones hicieron su primera aparición pública en Chile después 21 años este lunes 1 de febrero de 2016. Estuvieron posando para la prensa y los fans frente al Estadio Nacional de Santiago de Chile, mismo lugar en el que se presentaron en 1995. Veintiún años después, ellos están de regreso.

El día anterior, en la mañana del domingo 31 de enero, habían llegado desde Los Ángeles, California, EE.UU., en donde habían estado ensayando durante dos semanas. Poco después de las 5 pm, el sol estaba caliente e iba bajando, dos coches comenzaron a aparecerse lentamente hacia la prensa y los fans que esperaban. La prensa estaba alineada correctamente pues era una sesión de fotos propiamente organizada. Estabamos en frente del estadio, con las banderas de Chile ondeando en la brisa de la tarde.

Las puertas del coche se abrieron: Charlie Watts y Ronnie Wood en un coche, Mick Jagger y Keith Richards en el otro. Caminaron lentamente hacia la prensa y los fans, saludando sonriendo y portando gafas de sol. Luego se pararon delante de las banderas, posando y sonriendo, dieron unos pasos hacia adelante. Los fans estaban detrás de la valla cantando Olé Olé Olé tan fuerte como podían. El equipo de fotógrafos tenía las condiciones perfectas y hacían su trabajo. A continuación, los Rolling Stones agradecieron y se despidieron. Los coches se han ido.

Sonrisas en los rostros de los fans. Incluso algunos en la prensa son tanto fans como parte de la prensa el día de hoy. Cuando los Rolling Stones están presentes el tiempo se detiene, se sintió como si hubiera sido un largo tiempo, pero la sesión duró menos de tres minutos. Aunque esta fue sólo la primera parte del día para los verdaderos fans.

Algunos se fueron, pero muchos se quedaron. Media hora después pudimos escuchar música desde el estadio. Los Rolling Stones fueron a hacer una prueba de sonido y también una sesión de ensayos. Primero, tocaron un blues con algunos riffs de Chuck Berry. Luego, tocaron el cover de Toots and the Maytals: "Pressure Drop". Un buen reggae se sintió de aquello. Durante dos horas pudimos escuchar alto y claro lo que probablemente sería una parte del show del miércoles en Chile.

Ronnie hizo algunos riffs breves de "Dead Flowers", sólo algunos segundos. Luego tocaron "Tumbling Dice". Después, "Like a Rolling Stone". A continuación, dos partes de " She's A Rainbow ", seguido de dos partes de "Anybody Seen My Baby". Bernard rapeó nombres de ciudades de Chile, lo cual seguramente será un deleite para el público.

Todavía mucho más que escuchar ... Tuvimos "Paint It Black", sólo una pequeña parte. Luego, "Gimme Shelter", con la nueva voz de Sasha Allen. A continuación, "Out of Control", seguido de "Wild Horses" y "Sympathy for the Devil".

Continuamos con Keith Richards quien hizo una magnífica versión de "Can't Be See", y luego "You Got The Silver".

La pregunta es ahora ... ¿Mick se fue? En realidad no. Escuchamos la famosa armónica de Mick tocar la intro de "Midnight Rambler", pero nada más. Fue la versión de diez segundos, pero fue genial. También tuvimos a Matt Clifford haciendo el solo con el cuerno de la introducción de " You Can't Always Get What You Want ". Pero nada más, sólo el cuerno, aunque fue largo y hermoso.

Dos horas de los Rolling Stones en vivo en Chile. Le pregunté a uno de los fans junto a nosotros si había visto a los Stones la última vez que estuvieron en Chile. "No", respondió, “tan sólo tenía un año de edad en ese entonces”. Ahora él y sus amigos tiene 21 o 22 años de edad, esa es la edad de muchos fans de los Stones en Chile al parecer, muchos en sus 20s o 30s: Una multitud de jóvenes. Todo el mundo está listo para el verdadero espectáculo el miércoles 3 de febrero.

Review by Bjornulf Vik

I had invested in the front pit ticket and made sure I was always at the right queue to get in first. They moved us around from one queue to another, I made sure I was always where I should be in order to enter early. Free snacks? Nop. Free drinks? No. Not eating or drinking anything in the afternoon, I was prepared for front row. And I made it, as number four into the stadium, kind of proud of the hard word, it took a lot of focus on show day, but it feels good when you are as close as you can get on a Stones show. Yes, it is me right there on the first row in the set list stage shot by the Stones.

The stage floor was low, much lower than what they used at many other stadium shows lately. I would say two meters max. Great new stage decorations, just like the previous South America Tour (the short one) in 2006, bright carribean style colours on the stage framing. We were let in by 5:30pm, just as the soundcheck finished. A wait of some two hours, then the warmup band "Los Tres" were on. They played for 50 minutes, and just as they were about to start another song, their crew manager whispered in the front man's ear: "Time to go"... The final song lasted may be half a minute.

The Stones stage was ready in half an hour, probably less. It is just like watching the ants working on building the anthill. Fast, precicsly, well organized. Then the show was on ten past nine.

"She's A Rainbow" was a beauty. I just loved it. Followed by "Wild Horses", another favorite. And next "Paint It Black", made the crowd go wild, not as wild as in Argentina, but as wild as it gets still.

Keith takes the stage up front. The crowd is singing "Keitha" "Keitha" "Keitha" ... Keith just stand there listening. He must be proud to see fiftyfive thousand fans singing his name in Chile, twentyone year after he was here last time in 1995. Then as he has got a show to do, he says "Muchas Gracias", and he gets a great ovation. Two words. That is all it takes. I wish he cold have done "Can't Be Seen", which he did at the rehearsals on Monday, but hey, "You Got The Silver" and "Happy" do still work fine with me.

Then "Midnight Rambler". Through the whole show I see Mick and Keith are connecting so well. They have separate jobs to do, but they do connect and interact at times, more than usual, exchanging smiles, and Chalie is smiling a lot, and Ronnie is having fun too. It seems like the two weeks of rehearsals in LA have done well with the band, they have found the formula, and of course, touring 13, 14 or 15 shows in segments every year from 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and now 2016 is a new concept, it have not happened in decades, the fact that they tour five years in a row, as far as I can remember. They are a fine tuned band at this stage. And I don't think about their age for a second, really. It never appear in my mind, for some reason. May be it is all the energy. So much enegry on stage.

Before the show started I talked to the fans around me. The girl right behind me was a young fan from Santiago. She could have been my daughter... She told me she had seen the Stones one time before in her life, last year, as she did a week-end trip to Orlando. I realized she was just as big fan as myself. And as the show went by, I felt it was wrong of me to be in front of her. I gave her my rail position, and as she took it, she folded out her large Chile flag. She never pushed, she never asked, and just the wide smile on her face was worth it all, even if an old hard core fan like me sure likes to hold on to a great position.

Sasha Allen, she is the new "girl" next to Bernard. And she can sing! Her voice is well balanced in the mix. "Gimme Shelter" is great, but too bad Mick and Sasha spend all the time out there on the extended B-stage, while I am in the front. You can't have both. When Sasha walked back to her usual position, as she came back from the "Gimme Shelter" walkabout, I sort of felt with her, I was proud, thinking "Yes, you should be proud, you did it". It is hard to fill the position Lisa had in the band in this spot, just like it has been hard for Karl Denson and Tim Ries to do the Bobby Keys parts on Brown Sugar and Miss You, but these musicians are so professional, they do know exactly what they are best at, and then they still add a litthe bit extra of themselves, they are not just sidemen, but also great performers. I am looking forward to seeing Sasha Allen again on the tour. And yes, she looks great, boy I love to follow Mick, Keith, Ronnie and Charlie, but I could not help it, my eyes did follow Sahsa at times, great to have you in the band Sasha!

I did not hear any mistakes. And I loved it when Charlie and Keith walked side by side after the final bow, the last two off the stage. Luckily there is more to come. Thanks to the fans in Chile for making a great show, thanks to Chile for a great stay, and thanks to the Stones for a great opening on yet another tour! Olé!
