I saw Chuck Berry in his forties.
He didn't intend to play the guitar well or harmonise with the band.

By contrast,
Keith definitely orchestrated the band yesterday.
He could play the guitar like a ringing a bell.

I do totally agree. Keith had the band in his hand all through the show in Tokyo Dome, and as usual Keith saved the best for the last hour. He is a long distance player, need some warming up on stage, but once he is warm, Mick has to drag Keith off stage.

I noticed audience generation was well diversified.
To my surprise and delight, there were many fans in twenties or thirties.
Cute fashion model girl next my seat was singing along to every song.
That was way beyond my expectation considering ticket price and the history of the band.

I hope Japanese younger generation will get stimulated and inspired by the energy of those in their seventies.

I noticed very few cameras or phones in use, and every time someone tried to make a photo, one of the many security people said No and asked for the camera not to be used. That way it was much more easy to see the band and not thousands of cameras. I don't mind someone in front of me snapping a picture or a few ones, but holding up the phone or camera for entire songs to make youtube clips is sort of offensive I think. I did not go to the show to see a lot of cameras i the air.
I agree with you BV. In Abu Dhabi,some people in front of me spent all the concert filming every song. I could only see the band through a forest ( I could say a Wood..) of arms. Added to the height of the stage, AD won't be my best memory

It is true that the Tokyo Dome show number one had these characteristics:

- 99% local fans (not majority of foreign fans like in Abu Dhabi)
- Many younger fans i.e. next generations coming
- Mix of male and female fans

This was the same for the show I remember in Oslo of the last tour. New generations with fresh fans bring in some new vitality into the show. In some markets there is almost zero new fans, then the crowd just get older and older. Nothing wrong with old people but a good show need a great mix of fans.

Gimme Shelter (complete)



Hate to whine but seems as if Jaggers voice on Gimme Shelter might be the new "Scarf me up".... what the hell happens there?

Anyway - I guess Keith might regard this song as "guarded private ground" but I think that even for his 1 full song in lead per show - Taylor could be of great use for this one. Its not that I dont like it (how it was done in the last 2 shows) but there's kind of a miss. Keith's melodic playing at the last part of the song - great, but the rest is rather inconsistent and when adding Jaggers strange singing that sometimes seems to be out of tune - you get the feeling its a miss. Just my opinion...

This has to be the Abu Dhabi version, no??

Mick had trouble with his (in ear) monitor on that one. If this is the Tokyo version, and he had problems there again on this number, it would be hilarious!

The rest of the songs he sings beautifully. He is a quarter pitch above the band here.

Yes, the description of the video says it's Abu Dhabi. I hope, they played and sang it a lot better in Tokyo.

It doesn't happen very often that Mick sings off key like this.

It happened on Glastonbury with 2000 LYFH, though.

Yes that it happened there is a pity, because it was such a special song with a special atmosphere. Sometimes it happens on Sympathy. When you say this is because of troubles with his monitor, how do you know this to be the reason? Or is it your assumption?

I'm a singer myself, and when you consequently sing "correctly" off key - you don't hear the root note properly.

It could be other reasons, but most likely it's that - because he only had this problem on this particular song.

I'm just pulling your leg - although Ron played on seven of the originals smiling smiley

It might be a little late for variety, but who knows? Maybe they'll pull out Silver Train AND Till The Next Goodbye in one set? It would certainly freshen things up a bit, if the songs go down well, that is.

Pulling my leg? smiling smiley No need to. I remember an interview with MT were he said: "I left the Stones a long time ago, get over it". I think that's good advice - lots of old boots in my collection. But there's always this bit of hope for a final "blow the roof off" for 45 minutes with MicK T.

Unfortunately, I don't think there won't be as much as a crack in the ceiling with Silver Train.

The only "chance" for Taylor to be able to express himself freely (if one prefers that) is to be given a "free pass" to play during the whole show, imo.

I think it's particularily hard for Taylor fans to follow his advice and "get over it", when he actually decided to take part in a Stones tour.

Re: Tokyo-1 Feb 26 Stones 2014 show live updates

I like his role on Slipping Away, though. He is sort of tying things together, and plays some beautiful fills. It's potential in that, musically, imo.

I like, that it's really something new. An interesting idea to let Taylor play on a song that was written so many years after his departure.

While it's also an interesting and new element to have both Taylor and Wood play Midnight Rambler and the other songs Taylor plays on now, with Slipping away it's the other way round: It's a Wood era song, Taylor has never played before, the others are pre-Wood songs.

"The only real impact musically is Mick T and Jagger on MR. Why not use him on more songs and add some real punch into a very , very weak guitar mix. The stones became the greatest band when Taylor got them to rock and we could compete with LZ and the others, but sadly, since he left we have, with few exceptions become a very soft band. The weaving has not worked and instead sounds like one guitar trying unsuccessfully play lead. The true weaving was MT and KR when he as able to play."

What a crock of s**te.

Soft?!?!?! Weaving better with Taylor??


You lost your ears pal??? Clearly you don't get what the band is about if you bring up Led "about 6 good songs" Zep in your comparison.
