Why Macron ?Quote
Was this GS intro routine for Mick during the 1988 solo tour?
Apparently Mick did a "Emmanuel Macron" that night. He put unhealthy things in his nostrils then he pumped into action but he failed to notice the (hostile) reality of his surroundings...
Something I don't see him doing nowaday (#nofilter era)
Was kinda surprised when he wondered through the crowd during the '81 shows less than a year after Lennon was shot
I assumed that was done as a one-off stunt for the 'Lets Spend the Night Together' movie.
Didn't he do it in Leeds as well, or am I mixing them up here?
That video is really crazy to watch. What a nightmare it must have been for Mick and his body guards. Highly dramatic as Mick could have been killed. I don't know who vetoed that idea but the Asian fans loved their Mick Jagger so must that they could have hurt him badly. Facinating video to watch!Hey Gimme a shelter and he meant it.
What was the matter with Micks voice? he sings Gimme Shelter so different just one year later on the Steel Wheels tour?
This version of Gimme Shelter sounds a bit like the 70s version but with older Mick.
Tis is 89:
Mick was not in his best nick on these Tokyo shows. He caught a cold in Osaka and had to have the fourth and final Osaka show postponed from March 19 to 28 which as a result ended up as the final Japanese date. As far as I know, the bulk of the TV broadcasted performances are from March 22 which is the first show after three days-off hence his voice. FYI at least Brown Sugar and It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll are from March 23 with the guest appearance of Tina Turner who was touring Japan around the same time. In turn, Mick joined the encore of Tina’s Osaka-jo Hall show, March 27, for Honky Tonk Women, which drove the crowd nuts (I was there, too).
