Just a personal preference, I would really like to see them start a couple of shows with "She was hot" - Keith's opening riff in that song always reminded me of an ambulance siren saving someones life.. They really do need to dust that song off and let it be heard...
Sympathy for the Devil will be a fantastic opener, but I don't care so much - but it better be a real rocker like JJ Flash, Start Me Up, Brown Sugar, Satisfaction. You can say "oh no all the @#$%& warhorses again", but I think a show should open with a real ass kicking rock'n'roll song!
I would like a slow, accustic opener this time with only Keith and Mick coming on to the stage, Keith on guitar and Mick singing As tears go by. Then Charlie comes on and starts the heavy drum-intro to Get off of my cloud.
I've posted this before. How bout PAINT IT BLACK. An extended guitar opening with the lone spotlight on Keith, then Charlie jumping in on the drums and finally Mick exploding into the lyrics- perhaps from some location other than center stage. Now THAT would be awesome!.
The opening song needs to be an attention grabber but it is kind of a throwaway so I'd rather have them save the surprise numbers til the middle of the show. I say open with Brown Sugar or Tumbling Dice and get it over with.
I'd like to see an opening of Honk Tonk Women, with a long, drawn out intro. Keith chomping away, one by one they enter, maybe underneath a photo montage of their whole history, and then.....pow!!! The place is rocking!
