Mick Jagger talks about us : setlist selected by fans "too obscure"
Posted by: johnnythunders ()

" Mick Jagger has said that he's not sure using Twitter to construct setlists for The Rolling Stones' live shows will work as fans online only want to hear obscure songs.

The band will headline two huge gigs in London's Hyde Park this July as well as Glastonbury festival in June with Jagger announcing the Stones' slot on the Pyramid Stage by asking his followers what they would like to hear in the set. However, speaking to Q, Jagger seems to have realised that those following him online are not necessarily interested in just hearing the many hits from the groups career, "With Twitter you get so much more feedback," he says. "But the kind of people who tweet about songs are not your general fan. Not everyone wants obscure songs."

He adds: "Otherwise, you’ll get everyone else saying. 'I brought my girlfriend along, and she wants Honky Tonk Women, not the whole of 'Their Satanic Majesties...', thanks'."

At least he noticed the IORR request for the whole of TSMF...

Saying we'd like to hear Little Queenie, Can't You Hear Me Knocking or Sway is NOT the same as saying ALL of Satanic Magesties! I know he is being facetious but still...

Playing all of Their Satanic Majesties Request would be the craziest, bravest thing they've ever done.

yeah but it that were to happen, maybe 10% or say 20% to be really generous would be thrilled, the rest would be confused and disapointed.

I like all those tracks, too. We got "Rocks Off" and "Waiting on A Friend" at my concert, so I was thrilled.

Did he think we would ask for Miss You and Satisfaction. C'mon .Let the 4-12 songs be obscure, rest could be greatest hits.

At the Nov. 25 O2 show, Jagger said something like "this is the part of the show where we play the whole of Their Satanic Majesties Request," and I think I was the only person in the building who a. for a fraction of a second believed him, and b. got excited. eye rolling smiley But I think it's better the way it is, especially the way things were shaping up at the last show. grinning smiley

SO he asks the fans to submit requests and then doesn't like the requests so he will ignore them. Keith please help!!!!

In 89' they whipped out 2000 light years..........would 2000 man really be more obscure and unexpected?

It is my FIRM belief that Mick has no inter.est in being in a "working" band. I hope he does read this, but I have my doubts, that too would require effort.

Whatever happened to "Lady Jane"? In fact, all of "Aftermath" would be sweet. Be a man, Jagger!

I bet if the Stones did a concert tour of only 'obscure tunes' it would sell out in an instant.

It would be a very short show though....I guess they could mix it up and stretch it out with
Going home,
We love you,
Jigsaw puzzle,
Memo from Turner,
The country honk,
Just want to see his face,
Can you hear the music,
Fingerprint file,
Down in a hole,
Heaven,
Feel on,
Continental drift,
Might as well get juiced,
Honky tonk women & Jumping Jack flash...........
