To me, the Licks tour seemed to be the first time The Stones really strived to get some decent, popular and credible opening acts, especially in Europe and the UK.
Let's hope for more of the same this time round. They have the right idea by getting Beck to open, but have let themselves down with Black Eyed Peas and Maroon 5. It's kind of the equivalent of No Doubt and Shaggy on the Licks US leg.
Despite some fine opening acts, I was very disappointed with who I saw last time around. The Pretenders in the States, The Cranberries in Germany and bloody Starsailor and Feeder in England. My dad got to see Primal Scream!
I kept thinking to myself, If only I could've seen Tim Burgess, Cooper Temple Clause or EVAN The Thrills, it would of been better than the tripe I got.
Shawn 20, my thoughts exactly! The Mighty VH opened for them in 78 in New Orleans and 81 in Orlando (back cover of Diver Down). Not sure if they opened any other shows for them.
Also, I think the Stones would invite AC/DC to open for them again. I think they had a great time together, especially when Angus and Malcolm joined them for Rock Me Baby. Stones are probably the only band AC/DC would consider opening for.
