Quick question. Does anyone know if gopros are allowed in the concert as well as the extending arm. Recently saw Jimmy Buffett and was not allowed to bring the extending gopro arm in. I don't want to make the same mistake twice by having to run back to the car and put it away.

If you gonna bring one of 'em selfiesticks to the show, chances are you're going to get whipped with it.

I sincerely hope they're not allowed in, or that people won't use them if they are. I have enough trouble seeing the stage at the best of times.

Sometimes my eyes go a little dyslexic and it looked to me at first like you asked "Does anyone know if gropers are allowed in the concert as well as the extending arm."

It lloks like they even made the Stones tongue(teeth) special for that show.

That will be pretty cool as long as they don't allow the extended gopher arms.

Not sure if it's been posted yet, but here's the Rolling Stone magazine review of last night's show...(RollingStone.com)

One part that sticks out to me is this statement about Mick Jagger...

Quote
Gavin Edwards/Rolling Stone Magazine
What he can't quite bring himself to do is ask the crowd "Are you doing good?" and sound like he means it — whenever he enacts that particular show-biz ritual, the words sound like they've been marinated in sarcasm, suggesting that there is a corner of Jagger's soul that was never touched by show biz. Similarly, when Jagger announced that they would be playing a song selected by fan vote, he told the crowd that the band didn't know the results until they appeared on the screen. "It's a surprise for us," he declared, and then muttered, "If you believe that. . ."

The article is great but the comments bellow it are mostly rubbish.

I was there and it was amazing, don't listen to all the haters.
Sometimes the loudest folks online are just trolling or upset.


It was a great show.

"It's a surprise for us" he declared, and then muttered "if you believe that..."

That's actually classic Jagger right there. Adding sarcasm under his breath and never take the biz too seriously.
He can be sincere though when he's riding an adrenaline high. Compare:

"People sometimes say to us: Why you guys keep doing this and the answer really is we do this because of you! You're the one that comes to the shows,
you're the one that buys our records and WE thank YOU very very much."
sarcastic at Newark

"Thank You so much for coming to all our shows throughout all these years, fifty years or summat we been doin this, thank you so much for coming,
and if this is the first time you ever see the band, do come again, alright?"
sincere at Glastonbury

They specifically said no Go Pros last night, or professional cameras. Small hand held non professional cameras were fine.

great analysis. i love "it's a surprise to us... if you can believe that"... it is reminiscent of the beatles and the stones of the 60s, doing idiotic PR things their managers convinced them to do (like wearing suits) and metaphorically winking at the camera as if to say "we all know this is silly show business bs..."

Quite true, I think.
I remember 2 or 3 snippets from the tour docus, where Mick asks the camera, mimiking his behaviour on stage "Are you Ha-Ving Fu-Hun?" - or in the back at the mixing table in the studio shouting "Are you alright?" then pointing up to some imaginery stadium upper seats: "'N how about you lot?", then laughing...

Mick is realistic in his sarcasm - don't you ever take that too serious. It's Only Rock 'n' Roll ...

I quite like Mick's sense of humor. It was plenty prevalent in the documentary "Being Mick". He get's portrayed as a cold calculating businessman too often, but his humor is certainly one of his most endearing qualities.

One thing you don't often see from Mick is true emotion. I think he's probably pretty hardened by the disingenuous people he's been exposed to for so long. It's easy to see where his sarcasm come from. Probably why his earlier work like Let It Loose contained so much emotion and the later stuff is rather void of it. Maybe a song about his daughters or L'Wren could bring some emotion back to the surface.

Mick has so many songs written that he can simply choose one that mirrored his feelings. I truly got that impression when he sang Worried About You
last summer and I remember being very moved by that. If you look at that Glastonbury scene I quoted (before Tumbling Dice) you also see him convey what I'd call true emotion.

"Put those lights on, Patrick"

Sincerity I'll take your word for but true emotion, not quite what I had in mind. Perhaps the short term experience of the emotion of gratitude is what you are referring to and I'll buy that as well, but it's more likely Mick is in full on performance (acting) mode when on stage so it's hard to tell since he's so good at it.

keith standing on stage with his arthritic hands, body stiffened by age, naturally greying/white and thinning hair, unsure of what song comes next, singing "slipping away" is true emotion to me. i think the song is one of the most honest ones they've written, and i do read into the fact that he chose to play it on this tour.

Watch the whole warhorse run. You see him crack up and shake his head like he can't believe how great the whole thing is working out. Call it the emotion of a triumphant homecoming. Or wait, that sounds selfish again.

I was there and I thought the show especially for a opening night was excellent! I've never heard them sound so good on a opening night usually there is quite a bit of rust I did not hear any really! I think there is going to be some epic show's on this run before they hit that magic number of 7 or so in!

Do you have the video of it? Then go look at it. Genuine looks different and I had to come up with an example that points out the difference.
You could also go with Hyde Park where he made a comment in a similar context which ended with "...we really appreciate!" That's so insincere you can taste it.

Yes, I've got the video, and I've looked at it. And I was at Hyde Park. Guess we'll have to agree to disagree on this one.
