It's Only Rock'n Roll
After that, the crowd was aboslutely silent for nearly one hour. I mean, yesterday it was all crazy, ole ole, and suddenly it was all so quiet... Anyway, at 10 sharp, the Stones were on, and if the crowd had been silent so far, they freaked out totally during Satisfaction. The same excitement lasted all through Let's Spend The Night Together and Flip The Switch. But with Gimme Shelter it all slowed down.
We got Anybody Seen My Baby. OK version, but the crowd was now more in the quiet mood. 19th Nervous Breakdown. Then Saint Of Me, and everybody is singing along on this very popular song.
For Out Of Control Mick has brought back his silver jacket for the night, and the song is great as usual, with slow parts, explotions, harmonica, Mick dancing, Ronnie solo guitar, you name it.
She's A Rainbow was the web choice, and a winner. Then Miss You, everhybody was singing along. Introductions. Ronnie was introduced as Puta Loco, but as my spanish knowledge is almost zero, I can only guess that means the same as Mick use to say in English: "Raving mad".
Keith got lots and lots of Olé Olé Olé Olé Keitha, and he was really touched, saying: "Thank you one and all, but I've got a show to do", breaking in on the neverending singing, as he just had to do his songs eventually... Then he did a popular version of You Don't Have To Mean It, followed by the usual Wanna Hold You.
Little Queenie got company by I Just Wanna Make Love To You on the small stage. Buenos Aires wanted fast and swinging songs, so it wasn't until Like A Rolling Stone it was back to the boiling point for the small center stage. Lots of singing along, jumping and dancing, swinging and waving shirts.
The final part of the set came out strong as usual. Mick worked hard to warm up the crowd, which seemed a bit more quiet than last night. And by Start Me Up, the crowd was back in the same good old mood of great singing, dancing and partying. And soon, to soon, it was Brown Sugar and all over for now!
More reviews, please! What was your favorite moment? What was the best song? Was it as great as in 1995? Please, Argentina fans, tell us by email what you think. I'll publish your thoughts here!
Start time: 10:00 End time : 00:25The set list:
In the show of the Stones 5 diferent tracks, ANYBODY SEEN MY BABY? (live strange song, but great!), 19TH NERVOUS BREAKDOWN (Just great!, qlearly the public didn't know this song), SHE'S TO RAINBOWN (live beautiful version), YOU DON'T HAVE TO IT MEAN IT (I love the reggae songs by Keith) and I JUST WANT TO MAKE LOVE TO YOU (not so grateful for the fans, as THE LAST TIME in the previous night, of cource a lot I like this new version for the Stones)
There was also for example a lot of difference in people's class that attended, the first night it was more fanatic people and of very low economic resources, contrary to the second night but apparently there was also stupid that bothered MEREDITH.
I want to finish this review giving all my respect to MEREDITH and my total dislike to the audience of the Argentina, for this class of attitudes I always think that serious good to see a show of the Stones in another part of the world.
