Looks like you missed the smiley ?

Anyway can you clarify the confusion on the BS intro that you said Keith messed up and that "z" was fine?

Listened to a recording I made with my clip mp3 device - couldn't decide as the quality was bad. Maybe I was too tense waiting for all those staple IORR.org gig moments we discuss endlessly (SMU/BS intro, MT introduction/bows...) and my subconscious made me think it was bad? smiling smiley

The whole "best ever" thing...if anything it's because people had a great time at the show, can't be a bad thing surely ? ;-)

Didn't see any "best ever" comment for the last 4 gig's - have I missed something?

Latvianinexile said yesterday was the best of of 3 he attended last week. Not more.

Yesterday's gig was certainly ONE OF THE BEST OUTDOOR GIG'S OF THE GREATEST HITS ERA (2013-2014). Not more.

How can one summarize 4 Stones gigs wihtout being there?
Wroclaw - come to the gigs!
We can´t wait to have you in our middle. Come to Berlin!

Latvian was at 3/4 shows... I was at one...

And you will get me in Berlin - but now for the show sadly... Only as a Stonesfree tour day on the way to Paris. I'll get to spent in Berlin whole 20 hours (next Thursday) for the first time since 1987... some told me it changed a bit grinning smiley

2) The setlist is filled with "warhorses" I prefer to call them some of the best songs in rock history and for most of us the songs that got us all interested in the Stones. The Stones have never played in Israel do expect them to go out and play Stoned or Gomper? No.



Why do you have to take this argument to a preposterous extreme?

Actually is not a big surprise since Keith has said in an interview to an Israeli media that they will play it in Tel Aviv since it's a kind of their version of "Hava Nagila"

But, in reality the melody is mostly is just nicked from a Supremes song. grinning smiley

New Job

Many kids

Big hole in the pocket thanks to last summer flying to see the RS AND The Who in England & Ireland. IN 1989-1990 I worked flipping burgers (there was no minimum wage law for teenagers back then...) and begged for money from all family elders to fly and see the RS/The Who/The Knebworth 1990 festival. I told everybody that "these guys wont be around for much more so this is a one time expense".

Well.. Said that many times since and the family seems to have had enough. Told my parents I'm flying to Berlin to see museums... if they knew I'm on to another RS gig (In Paris) they wouldnt have taken my kids. Anyway - I do not think I can enjoy more than 2-3 shows per tour when the setlists are stable. Only exception was The Who in NYC in 2000 (4 gigs in 5 nights) - but they were amazing and crowd was even more amazing...

Back in Jerusalem after the Tel-Aviv show.

I'm writing this little review with the benefit of having read right through this thread so far, in which I noticed a couple of comments that I must refer to.

Firstly, latvianexile noted that in his opinion this was the best show of those he's seen to date on this tour. Secondly, BV was talking about numbers in attendance. And thirdly, someone noted that they lost their way in the middle of Jumpin' Jack Flash.

For me personally, this show was "a family affair". My 2nd cousins in Israel have long known about my love of this band, so when the opportunity arose to see the Stones in their country together with them, it was absolutely not to be missed. I bought general admission tickets for the lot of them, we were seven in total, myself and six family members. My immediate cousins (late 40s and early 50s), their kids (mid 20s) and one of the girls' boyfriend (mid 30s).

The venue was ideally suited to an outdoor event, because the ground sloped gently downwards towards a flat area where the golden circle was and the stage itself. We parked ourselves just at the "break of slope", so in other words where the ground starting rising at a gentle gradient. This was great, because although quite far back, it offered a fantastic overall view.

The band hit the stage at 21:15 sharp, and my immediate observation was that where we were, the sound was absolutely tremendous in terms of mix - but simply not quite loud enough. I never realised quite how key to the overall projection of a band like the Stones actually is unless the volume is evenly distributed around the venue. Maybe I've been very lucky over the years, but I've never really had much to complain about whenever I've seen them on the "volume" front !! Anyway, it kind of seemed to come in waves a bit, sometimes I was thinking "turn it up a little", and at other times it seemed ideal. But the mix was superb. That Telecaster "clang" and Jagger's crystal clear vocals just cut through that hot sweaty Tel-Aviv night air like a razor.

As for the performance, I would describe it as mesmerizingly energetic, gloriously ragged in terms of the mistakes made, and a setlist SO perfectly pitched at the Israeli audience - it beggared belief.

This show was Mick Jagger's. He charmed them with his Hebrew, he worked them like I've never seen him work a crowd, he staggered them with the display of energy, he essentially pulled out all the stops - and there is very little that I could say that hasn't already been stated by the reviews in the Jerusalem Post and the Times of Israel. He won the audience over lock, stock, and two smoking barrels.

It was a diabolically hot day in Tel-Aviv. As my cousins and I were driving down the long and winding highway from Jerusalem to Tel-Aviv, the outside temperature as we approached Tel-Aviv was 38 degrees C. In ANYONE'S language that is ........... yowch, very hot ! Consequently, it made the energy levels on display during that performance even more extraordinary. The fact that it had been SO hot during the day might have accounted for the fact that they came on at 21:15 and played till 23:15, it had cooled off slightly by the time the show started.

I spent a fair bit of time absorbing the reactions of not only my dear cousins, but of the crowd around us. In saying this, I am mindful of the fact that not only they, but a lot of the people around us too, were not particularly au fait with the Stones catalogue, and this is why in my opinion the setlist was so perfectly pitched at that audience. The ONLY songs for example that my cousins between them were unfamiliar with were YGMR and Keith's two songs. These are people that have no particular interest in the Stones, no great passion for them, have none of their records or CDs, have never seen them, but that knew all the songs in the setlist bar perhaps three.

The song that first got people really rocking and singing along was Dice. That was a benchmark song , and following it by Angie was a triumph. Because if TD got the crowd's full attention, then introducing a dynamic step change with Angie was a stroke of genius. They went from an extended gloriously rocky singalong/clapalong song to a ballad that absolutely everyone knew. Brilliant.

Doom and Gloom probably served no particular purpose in the setlist at this point really, it was delivered perfectly well, but didn't really provoke any particular reaction from either the family or those around us.

But from then on, the Rolling Stones gave Tel-Aviv what it wanted, starting with Cloud, followed by Paint It Black, followed by Honky Tonk Women. The most extraordinary part of the remainder of the set from this point onwards, which was still about 50 percent of it, was how unbelievably good Keith's renditions of Silver and Can't Be Seen were. The former song I adore, and I have to say that this version in Tel-Aviv was sung by Keith superbly. I don't know whether he's been doing some voice training or something, but that version stood out for me as THE best by a huge margin. Again, referring to family and crowd reaction, they were pretty much awestruck. Ronnie's slide was divine, and it struck a major major chord with those in my part of the venue. The place lit up with a sea of smartphones, an awesome spectacle when you're looking at about 50,000 of the bloody things right in front of you.

The blast through the rest of the set, starting with Rambler, was just SO perfectly pitched at the audience in terms of being songs that everyone knew, that it left a lot of people round my neck of the woods looking physically exhausted. In terms of audience reaction and "singalong/clapalong", the songs that really made their mark were Miss You, Shelter, Sympathy, and Satisfaction. The songs that left people muttering words like "incredible" and "unbelievable" to one another were Shelter and Brown Sugar in particular.

Mistakes ? Oh yes, it wouldn't really have been a Rolling Stones concert without plenty of those, now would it ? THE most glaring, and it was kind of hilarious to witness, was the extent to which they lost (would you believe) the middle of Jumpin' Jack flash !! I swear to god that what I heard was half the band struggling to play a new verse, whilst elsewhere there was someone still thinking they were in the chorus. It was lost to a lot of the crowd I suspect, but for diehards .......... just an absolutely classic Stones balls-up. It didn't detract from the overall performance one jot, not one.

Towards the end of the show, the song that really got a strong reaction from the audience was YCAGWYW. I think a lot of people were simply gobsmacked to see a choir on stage. A lot of people knew the song, there was an awful lot of singing along around me, not only the well known chorus but the verses as well, but it seemed as if people were really shocked to see a choir on stage, pleasantly shocked I hasten to add.

Satisfaction was special for me personally. Why ? Because a day earlier my 2nd cousin had shown me a video clip on her smartphone of her 9 year old dancing with the rest of his class in school to his favourite song that their music teacher has recently introduced them to ........... a song called Satisfaction by a well known English group called the Rolling Stones. So you can imagine, EVERY smartphone in the family was focused on those screens, and guess what his elder sisters are going to be showing him on their smartphones later today on the beach in Tel-Aviv ??

To summarise, I'll just say that in the car on the way back to Jerusalem, my cousins commented that the Stones' performance was SO good, that even if you had gone to that show without knowing a single Rolling Stones song, you would have been thunderstruck and you would have had a blast.

As for latvianexile's comment elsewhere earlier in this thread that this was "the best show" of those he's seen to date on this tour, all I would say is that for myself by comparison - it is very difficult to make judgements like that. What makes a "best show" ? It's a very personal thing, because quite often it's dependent not only on what they play and what you hear, but on all sorts of other parameters as well. But I'll say one thing, in order to comment and to comment with some slight modicum of impartiality, you really DO have to be there. Not in your armchair at home, but THERE. Get out and SEE this band, they are not going to be around for ever and ever and ever, so raid the piggy bank and get out there and see them. They remain a truly awesome spectacle in concert, and at this point in time, they once in a while put on a truly gobsmacking performance. Tel-Aviv on 4th June 2014 was one such, the energy levels displayed by Jagger were extraordinary. I heard kids around me asking their parents "how old did you say Mick Jagger is" ?

And finally, back to BV's observation about it being packed. Well no doubt BV was in his usual spot down near the stage somewhere, whereas I was in GA about 50 yards back from the end of the catwalk. Yes it was packed, all the way back behind me to the entrance/exit gates. SERIOUSLY bloody packed. I wouldn't care to guess how many were there, but I would not be in the least bit surprised if it was much more than the supposed 45,000, which was the number of tickets that had apparently been sold up to 3rd June. I don't know for sure how many were there, but it looked like a hell of a lot more than 45,000. My cousins, whose kids have been to loads of outdoor shows at Hayarkon Park, reckoned that by the look of it, about 70,000.

The Rolling Stones in Tel-Aviv on 4th June 2014.

Simply f***ing great it was !

Great review Paul...Thank you. The JJF was indeed strange... this song is usually their safest place.

Coming home I felt like a baked potato - hot on the surface, boiling on the inside. I though I might go to some pub on the beach and see if any RS fan's are there, but... had to escort my kids to near the Ramat Gan stadium where my brother parked. The pedestrian bridges (over the river) were a bottle neck and a nightmare. Anyone knowing the specific history of that bridge was surely terrified being stuck on it for long minutes. Walked back to the park (this time found a short cut behind that water park) to pick up the Mrs. who was a zombie by then. Sat with tons of other exhausted people near a gas station there and ate all the junk they sell, but after that knew that I have tested my good health and shape for too much. We stood on the fence of the GA, facing the backs of the Golden Ring where the heat effect was maximum. Sadly... the post gig gathering (in places such as Mikes Place) was not possible. Do not know if there was any as everybody looked as if they would appreciate a good night sleep. Hate the heat.

I really liked your comment Paulywaul ! I personally complain sometimes for the setlist and i get disappointed, but the Stones and especially Mick know what audience expects from them. I mean, there is an evident gap between people like us who write on this website and the remaining peole, the 95% of the audience. that's it . Springsteen and Dylan have a different attitude with their fans, the Stones think in a different way. I am going to Rome with some friends, and I am sure that if the Stones are not gonna play HTW, JJF etc etc they will be upset and disappointed. but I saw the stones more than 20 times and they are at the 2nd Stones concert.
I am so hpapy they played in Israel , it is one of my favourite countries, I go there 2-3 times a year for business and I love the people there, they are so Amazing that I went on holiday on easter too..
so, once again, I am happy and proud that the band I love since 1978 is still able to play at this level with pride and dignity

Just switched on my pc this morning in Spain,after looking at first 4 pages or so last night,soon after the show ended,getting the impression it was a so-so show ,but nothing special.
Great show,obviously,to me, as every Stones show is.
Looked as if everyone had a good time and 99.9% of the audience would be extremely happy with that setlist.

After looking at the next few pages that were put on overnight,I could see that this show was something special to most people who attended it and of course you always get a few whiners about setlist, MT,and on and on,by people who were not there.

I would have loved to have been at that show,even though,the differant setlists of Oslo and Zurich were a dream to me.

So happy that yer all had a great time and thanks for the pics,videos,reviews and especially that gem of a review from paulywaul. smileys with beer

Pleasure, and speaking of thanks, once again mine to you. You're the kind and helpful guy that bought those tickets for me whilst I was somewhere in the skies above Africa on a sodding flight back to work ........ on the VERY day they went on sale !!

What is with all of the whining on this board. Here is what we get lately:
1) Keith is somehow a liability to the Rolling Stones. Hello Keith is the spirit and soul of the Rolling Stones we have people suggesting that he should take a limited roll. Well folks if he did that it would no longer be the Rolling Stones. The photo of the Stones getting off the plane in Tel Aviv someone stated Keith looks old and lost. Please he looked fine in the other photos snapped moments before or after.

2) The setlist is filled with "warhorses" I prefer to call them some of the best songs in rock history and for most of us the songs that got us all interested in the Stones. The Stones have never played in Israel do expect them to go out and play Stoned or Gomper? No. They are going to play the hits. One day in the near future we will only hear cover band trying to do these songs justice and will wish that the Stones could play them,

3) They don't sound like they did in 1973. Of course they don't its 2014 and most of these guys are over 70 and they still put on one of the best rock shows out there!

4) Lisa is a cow and can't sing anymore. I wonder what that poster looks like.
Lisa can still sing and no she is not the sex pot she once was but I give the Stones credit for keeping her around.

We should all be thankful that these guys are out there playing and should not take it for granted.

I can not take all of the negative crap that everyone seems to write.

Great review Pauly and spot on. I would've liked to meet you there. It was indeed packed, with many thousand outside the fenced area as well, as the sound I'm sure could be easily heard there along with portions of the video screen visible for free.

Did anyone notice Keith having a guitar malfunction in the very beginning of HTW? If I'm not mistaken , Ronnie took the opening intro riff. Still working on uploading some videos.

I met and hung out with Z and his family. What extraordinarily nice and fun people. Thank you Z for the pre sale code, and overall hospitality. You're an awesome dude with lovely wife and family.

Angie was a very pleasant surprise. You'll all hopefully enjoy my video of it if I can get it posted with this godforsaken hotel wifi.

My first trip to Tel Aviv from Philly was easily worth the time and money, not to mention how cool to discover the band staying in my hotel and meeting a few of the back up band. Now I'm scrambling to see if I can somehow make Stockholm happen. Anyone have an extra tongue pit ticket or two for sale? winking smiley

Give me a break. 90% of the comments here are positive, but you and a few others want 100%. That's the way the world is. Why is it you "can't take" any negative comment? You think every song is the best, every performance is flawless, any criticism is "whining," maybe the most misused word on the internet.

Why are you so insecure in your own views that it upsets you to read something that might slightly disagree? See, if I were you I would day that this place is "filled" with immature babies who can't take a discussion, but I would then be inflating you into a representative of all. That's what you do.

The producer had the perfect "hand" but played it cool as ice - which made people believe its going to be a fiasco. The numbers were a top secret data. The journalists who wrote about the fiasco trusted their instincts. No one expected so many simple people living their life and keeping their Stones love as a private matter. I surprised me too. In the pre 2007 days I was sure they will sellout due to the massive stages and production + occasional hit. It makes an impression. This gig was a down to earth on that matter - and stuffed between several other gig's. All signs were against a success. But the producers knew better.

I expected the return of PIB, Gazza, even for just one gig, because the particular concert was the first Stones show in Israel. They probably wanted an absolutely "classic" list in Tel Aviv.

I remember something similar, from the gig in Athens, in 1998. During the B2B tour, PIB was normally out of the list - if memory helps, it had been "web choice" for a very few shows. But in Athens they played it, just because the particular concert was the second Stones gig in Greece, ever. Actually the first ever, considering the fact that the first one took place 31 years earlier (1967).

Let's see whether PIB will be consolidated on the rest of the tour or on some tour's part. To be honest, i like the song live and first of all i like the enthousiasm that it brings to the audiences. It's big crowd pleaser...

Here's a story I have to share with everybody.

As my cousins and I were entering the site, we got held up in a short line of people that were waiting to go through security, because some guy was getting turned inside out and was being asked lots of questions, and the line wasn't moving. We simply moved to another line and 5 minutes later we were in.

About an hour later we were talking to some people sat on the grass next to us and who had also been caught up in that particular roadblock, and they explained to us what security had found on the guy. They'd found a bloody hand grenade.

It turned out the guy had nicked it from his army base, and effectively removed the explosives part of it, but thought it would be a nice thing to let off at the end of the show just to "localise" the pyrotechnics in his part of the GA area !! A homemade incendiary device, just to add to the festivities !!

Jesus Christ, only in Israel !! Take a camera - OK. Take water - OK. Take your sandwiches - OK. But in Tel-Aviv - take your hand grenade as well !!

It takes all sorts, I'm only glad the bastard (and his celebratory homemade incendiary device) didn't make it in and wasn't hanging out in our vicinity.

FFS !!

Paul - these things were common if football field until some 10-15 years ago. Strange to hear that about rock concert. The only unusual thing I saw was a huge number of people who wore that endless smile stoners have and that people smoked pot in an pen event where police was present (as opposed to indoor gig's where its just civilian security). Near me there was a huge quarrel between a woman, and man that were from 2 completely opposite social classes about some spot. Rather embarrassing. The guy was sort of old hood punk, and the RS fans were numbering him at 10:1. I actually felt sorry for him... during the show I could see he was a HUGE fan. He even gave me some water when I ran over mine. Poor guy, even if he started.. I'm used to see that with drunk gig goers but these guys were sober.

..and MT did not play on satisfaction?

If Mick Taylor plays with an acoustic guitar on 'Satisfaction' or not, its doesn't matter. Because you can't hear him during Keith & Ronnie play the electric guitars. If Mick Taylor would also play an electric guitar on 'Satisfaction', then it would be of course another story.
