Micks entrance to the Voodoo Lounge
Date: March 19, 2014 18:20

I've always been a bit curious.... At the start of the tour, mick would take the lift and shoot right up to start 'Not Fade Away' but about 15-20 shows in, he started walking on stage and taking a bow....Anyone know the reason?

.....keep on rolling.....

Great question. I got to see a show with the lift and blew everyone away.

I mean you hear Charlie and the lights are coming up and then.. there he is!

But all of the better videos of the tour have him walking out.

Maybe the lift broke or he was afraid of getting stuck and having to be rescued on stage? But seriously, he used that lift to great effect on Sympathy during the SW tour.

a floor lift and regular elevator are 2 different things, 2 different effects.

it got stuck a couple of times at some of the earlier shows and they decided to scrap it.

No, they didn't ditch it. They changed the point of the show that they used it. They starting using it for Mick's return after Keith's set. Mick reentered the show for the stretch run using it... instead of using it at the very beginning of the show.

Voodoo lounge was a helluva good album and a helluva good tour!
All aspects were great from not too high ticket prices to a long and winding tour with plenty of dates and locations to see them (although, of course, no KC date, again) to a mix of new and old songs. What a great show!! and the whole Voodoo lounge section of the show was spectacular, early on opening with Love is Strong, later in the tour with SFTD. I saw enough tour dates, throughout the tour, (we even fly to Amsterdam to see 2 June shows in Nijmegen) on the Voodoo Lounge tour to make me very very happy, unlike these days.

Totally agree, Max!

Did you by any chance catch the KC-shows in 81?

I tried to get in the first night, but it was sold out like crazy and did not get in (and to this very day, it is only one of two events I have ever walked away from not being able to get in by buying a ticket outside, compared to successfully buying tickets out side to 200-300 events) but for the second night I was busy all day looking ofr tickets and bought some in the after noon.

We floated aropund Kemper arena the whole show until self upgrading to front row in front of Ronnie and Keith for the last 4 songs and the balloon drop, it was out of control fun and good time, I even took a couple of spectacular pictures of those two, arms wrapped around each other... they are posted around here somewhere.

It was a tongue in cheek response.

I saw it both ways and think he liked to get the effect better at the Sympathy intro.

I liked both--best opening ever was VL tour with the Cobra hear or whatever it was, and non warhorse tune.

Hello,

One of the Wembley dates was the first time I'd ever seen the band. One of my clearest memories of it involves that beginning of the show to which You Got To Roll Me refers. It was Summer, so still light; we could hear the intro music, so we knew the show was imminent; I could hear the drums and so looked to the kit and saw Charlie, my first live glimpse of a Stone; and such was my concentration on him that I didn't even notice the singer sachaying across the stage...he was almost at the mic when I realised: "*#€%*!=* - there's Mick!!!". Absolutely brilliant, I bloody loved every second of it.

Yeah, great album, great tour, and micks entrance for sympathy was great, with the the hat and the glasses

With that being said, there is something about keith charging to the front of the stage and playing the opening riff of SMU/SFM/BS/JJF/GOMC gives me chills every time

June 20th, 1995, Cologne, Mungersdorfer Stadion:

The lights went down; Charlie started drumming...

From the right side Mick J. entered the stage, dancing and prancing. Right from that moment, 70.000 people were connected in a giant electric field.

When he reached his mike and bowed down, the crowd went nuts.

There was a bit of footage (I think promotional, or from a newsnetwork, or maybe a complete bootleg) that showed, from below the stage, Mick preparing and being shot up. I must have seen it on youtube somewhere, but I can't find it anymore. I'll try again later tonight. Or has anyone got a clue?

It could have been when "Sympathy for the Devil" returned half way through October that year. ?

I think that was from the official VL video, Giants Stadium. I could be confusing it with some backstage footage from the Licks tour though.

I am not sure what you are wanting, or wanting to do/see/have, but there are some easy to use free websites that might do what you want... maybe... [www.gifexploder.com]

I am only looking to assist here, hopefully no ones gets mad, if so, I will delete this post.

And as always, be sure to credit people for their work, if you use their efforts.

I can tell you that by the Philadelphia shows in September he was using the lift for Love Is Strong.
