Stones' stage gimmicks for each specific tour
Posted by: The Joker ()
Date: June 15, 2014 16:40

Gimmicks as regular, sort of rehearsed moves, sayings, interactings with the audiences, not as artefacts and objects...

They are quite a lot, I guess –Hard to remember

- "I got a button of my trousers, etc" - I think it was said more than one time in 1969

- Keith hitting Chuck’s keyboard with his foot at the end of Chuck’s solo on HTW (1989- ?)

- Chuck hitting his keyboard with his foot at the end of his solo on HTW (2007 – 2014)

- Mick joking about the World Cup Final (England versus... the country where the show takes place) (2014)

- "It's good to be here, etc". Keith 20th century- 21st century

- Mick saying they would play a song of local artist as the web choice (Scorpions in Germany, and Johnny Hallyday in France - 2014)

Lisa and Keith exchanging phony smiles and looks during GS (when Lisa hits the catwalk). 2012-2014. I think that in all shows.

Charlie refusing to get to the front of the stage to be introduced, but comes anyway (20-21st century?)

Keith and Ronnie walking to the catwalk during MY, then walking back – so that the people whom are not FOS can have a close look at them (Saw it in all shows I attended in 2013-14).

I like the idea of various members of the band hitting Chuck's keyboard with their respective feet.

Now,if only Taylor would give it a try,we might be rid of the god forsaken thing once and for all.

Are they not fans of each other then?

I'm a fan of my wife but I no longer exchange eye contacts with her at each and every gig... if you would do that your wife would think you are cheating on her. Or that you are a "vegas husband". Really... airline cabin crue are less predictable in their pre take off life vest gig, then the 2nd to 3rd minutes of GS...

GS is the only song when Lisa can move and walk on the stage... This said, I find the kiss-thing boring too.

she usually moves during YCAGWYW as well. Anyway... GS is well staged, like MY. Both are also catwalk orientedd, sideman (Lisa/Daryl) spotlight chance etc. Offcourse it is great for 1st timers. IORRians are the minority.

Jagger slapping the stage w/ belt during MR. - started as far back as Hyde Park, I think.
SFTD has always gotten various special treatments - Hyde Park the dancers and percussionists.
In 75 it was encore, often with guests. I think it also featured the girls of the opening acts parading by.
In 89 Jagger took the elevator, in 94 he put on a black top-hat, in 06 he put on a Gorilla coat. In all the versions since 89 the song was castrated by pre-recorded percussion tracks.

I suppose the band intros might qualify, as it seems to be a showbizzy remnant of the Olde-Tyme Worlde of live performance. How many bands nowadays bring the show to a halt halfway through to introduce the band members and the etceteras? The band intros always amused me, because, really, do they require an introduction? Besides, in the time it takes to do the band intros, they could have performed another song. They should drop the band intros segment and fill it by performing a different song each night in its place, one they've never performed before.

Sorry but all Stones shows seem to me to have become boring and routine after 1981.

Re: Stones' stage gimmicks for each specific tour

Would the animation clips shown during the solos in HTW count as gimmicks? They started as far back as 2002, to my knowledge.

Mick swinging his jackets back and forth during songs before deciding to throw it behind him. I remember him doing this at the show I saw in 2013.
This goes as far back as 1965, skip to 1:53 to see it...

- Blowing up dolls (SW: the honky tonk women, the streetfighting dogs. VL: the voodoo things for Sympathy and MM). And of course moving the women's hands suggestively and hitting the dog with a stick in certain places.

- Using red lighting only for Sympathy (since I think 2003 or 2005). Having flames up after the "pleased to meet you"-line (2003).

- Mick forgetting what album Rocks Off is from (VL/Licks).

- Keith walking both wings only once: the right wing during Sympathy, the left wing during Satisfaction (I think), 2013/2014.

- Keith throwing away a cig before his set (2002/3) and before saying "it's good to be here it's good to be anywhere" (since 1999 or so).

- Showing old footage on screen during an old song (2012/2013).

- The YCAGWYW choir (since 2012).

- Keith doing two fast songs instead of his later one slow, one fast (1989/1990 and some 2007 shows).

- Keith doing his fast song first (1994).

- A bridge to the b-stage (1997-9), walking to the b-stage (2002/3), having a moving b-stage (2005-7), having a circular catwalk (2012/3), having a straight catwalk with a plaform at the end (2013/4).

- Mick wanting to kick a bottle of water into the audience, most of the time clumsily kicking it the wrong way.

- "Turn the lights on Patrick" (since 2012, I think).

- Claiming Like A Rolling Stone was written for the Stones or other not entirely true explanations (1997-2003).

- Keith having a moustache to cover up bad playing (some shows 2007).

- Having a 'by internet request' song (1997 and 2013-4).

Please correct me on years!
