I predict more rarities in Australia and a lot more in Europe.

I wonder what is the main reason for shortening the set list?

Is that maybe the work load on Charlie?

Mick seems to be very energetic always and I can't see any big problems with Keith or Ronnie, if Keith has bad day you can see it from the first song and if he has a good day, I can't see any problem with 22 songs.

Its payback for the Japanese as they got three extra songs on "Sweet Summer Sun"

A glimpse backstage at Tokyo Dome. Hotei and @RollingStones played the fantastic song "Respectable" together.

I think the question is not the quality of the performance or even the song choices, but : why do they rehearse rare songs since they finaly playd more or less the same "best of" for years ?
I specify that's not a critic, but a fact.
because they get bored with playing the "warhorses" over and over so they mix things up for interest and veriety

Japanese bootleggers must be devasted : thye certainly counted on a spectacular 3rd show to sell lavish 6-CD box-sized sets of the whole residency.

Now that Tokyo has been a "nothing special" affair boots of the gigs will be cheap cd-r releases with ugly home-printed cover "art". >grinning smiley<

And about the setlist tonight, absolutely great. Just think about it, like 8-9 of the greatest rocksongs ever made in the history of rock music and performed on the same night by a band who originally made them? Will you ever see another concert / band do that?

yes, next show. same songs.

As a Japanese fan I would be really pissed. 3 greatest hits shows. Even the two shows in 2006 appear like club gigs, setlist wise, compared to this.

I specify that's not a critic, but a fact.

Personally I think the reality is: They rehearse the warhorses too & even those are prone to becoming 'derailed' at times. I think they just don't want to increase the chances of train-wreck versions of things that they rarely play. Songs like 'Rocks Off' went badly wrong in the US last year, so they play it safe to avoid embarrassment imho. It's not like they hang-out with each other as a band anymore. They spend years without seeing each other, then rehearse for a few weeks in order to even nail the warhorses. We remember the band's back catalogue much better than they do. Also, they obviously don't rehearse BETWEEN gigs either- so any rarity they may kick around during those initial rehearsals will become more & more of a potential disaster as the months roll on.
I don't mean that in derogatory way- it's just the way I see it. It doesn't mean that the shows aren't good.

Your post proves you couldn't possibly be a Japanese fan. How many Japanese fans do you hear bitching and complaining about these Tokyo Dome shows? None! Life's too short to be a setlist anorak, let alone be concerned about them.

If you like Charlie's drums, just go to the show and he'll show you how the rockin' beat really is.
Charlie was really good tonight. He played so heavy on "Midnight Rambler," "Honky Tonk Women" and "Paint It Black."
I have never been experienced such an earth rumbling and extra bass drum sound on records or DVDs.
He stole the show in somewhat.
He changed his beat to jazzy at the break of "Midnight Rambler," that was interesting.

Mick Taylor was definitely adding some values on recent Stones.
He was a secret ingredient for the band.
I feel Taylor's joint provided a good performance of Ronnie, a better atmosphere and good tension.
They fused together to bring heavy rocking sounds.
I've been taught from "Midnight Rambler " tonight that 2 plus 1 equals 5 or 6 and above.
Especially, Mick Taylor's fingers played so fast on his lead part. That's awesome!

We became strained when the staff forgot to bring microphone to Keith when he started to sing "Ruby Tuesday."smiling smiley
But we went wild when Keith said "glad to be back. like home" before singing "Before They Make Me Run."

All the people young and old were shouting together "Brown Sugar!" What a thrilling sight!
And as always, all crowds' jaw dropped when Mick was running down the ramp from end to end on this song.

Incidentally,
I looked over my diary today.
I found out that this is my 23rd Stones show in Tokyo Dome out of 28 times,
except for other venues such as Budokan, Kemper Arena, Soldier Field etc.
Not bad batting average.
The Rolling Stones has played over 600 songs in Tokyo Dome alone.
For myself, the memorable 500th song was "Gimme Shelter" of today.

Among them are "2000 Light Years in 1990", "Love In Vain in 1995", "Star Star, Crazy Mama and Memory Motel in 1998",
"When the Whip Comes Down and Mannish Boy in 2003", "Sway and Ain't Too Proud to Beg in 2006" and "Silver Train in 2014."
I was always stunned by these brilliant songs.
Everything got started since they played "Start Me Up" on Feb 14 in 1990.
And they have finished the show by "Satisfaction" tonight.

At this moment, I can't imagine if they will come to Tokyo Dome again.
However, my heart is filled with many good emotions.
There would be no more rock band like Stones.
I'll be thinking of you guys till the next time we say Sayonara.

A friend of mine who went to all three shows said they were on absolute fire (excuse the pun)...for all three shows. Lot of love from the crowd and the Stones gave it back to them. Exactly what the shows should now be about.

We keep on hoping. Taylor never played in Japan with the Stones before, but in Aussieland they still remember him from Februari 1973 and so do we here in Europe remember autumn 73. But I won't be surprised at all if they'll do the same thing in Australia and Europe as they did in AD and Tokyo.

Btw: what's that for kinda nonsense, to say that Knocking and Rambler in one show is too much? Too much of the good? It can never be too good!

I think the Euro setlist will be (very) different, as they have played here recently.

Thanks for the setlist updates Irix and for the reports from inside guys!

@Toru A - can you clarify what you meant by Mick Taylor soloing on SA during the second show as we couldn't really hear him on the (pretty low quality) full recording? Was he playing the same solo along with Keith? Also which was it that thumbed up and congratulated Keith after the song, Taylor I presume? Thanks!

Yes Gazza, I'm saddened by the lack of variety here as this is the only multi night stop on the tour. The main problem appears to be the cutting down of the set to 19 songs.........again . Leaves no room for swapping about some interesting non-warhorses.

Don't bode well for Europe as most of that will be 1 night per country !

Could be worse I suppose. At least they finally dropped that filler "One More Shot". Doesn't seem like anyone, even the hardcore Vegas fans, miss it ... smiling smiley

I precise that's not a critic, but a fact.

They play the same great songs each night on stage. On rehearsals they are just their own garage band and they can just for fun play stuff that they never do live, otherwise rehearsals may get boring to them.
Most of the rare stuff done in Paris will never go outside of the rehearsals.

And about the setlist tonight, absolutely great. Just think about it, like 8-9 of the greatest rocksongs ever made in the history of rock music and performed on the same night by a band who originally made them? Will you ever see another concert / band do that?

You may be right.

The fact is that, nowaydays, no hard-core fans can ignore the songs that are rehearsed by the Stones. And these fans are excited because the band rehearse "shine a light", "silver train", "love in vain","loving cup" etc.

But, maybe you're right; there's a confusion: people think that these gems are rehearsed for the tour, but in fact the Stones just play these tunes for "fun".

There seem to be some knowledgeable fans there in Tokyo though, doesn't there? Holding up signs for Mick Taylor and "I Can Feel the Fire" (bet that wasn't a coincidence...) and another for Lisa as well. Have to believe they could skip a warhorse or two, or three even, and all the fans in attendance could go home just as happy - just like they do for Bruce, or Neil Young or anyone else. Of course Jagger gets those empty stares from the crowd when he's putting all his energy into flogging something like "Terrifying".... I'm sure they could do better with Heart Breaker or Hot Stuff etc...
