Today 20 years ago 8th of June 2003, my pinnacle concert week of all times with The Rolling Stones ended with the concert in Cirkus Krone Munich.
The Mother Of All Concerts
I was there for 3 Shows with Fan Asylum. What a week!! What a show!!
Standing in front with no one in between Keith & Mick, Charlie
, Ronnie and the others and me when the show started
. My best show ever. What a setlist, the hottest show I attended ever and a lot more. Mick said to Darryl Jones it was even hotter than the opener in Toronto 2002. Marvelous. The stage so low and we so close to the barrier. I could touch Mick. But it was not allowed was told to us. But I did anyway. He jumped back, I thought oh my, now they kick met out…. Later Mick self gave me a high five at the end
. You can hear me shout in the recording of Nearness Of You when Keith said something like: I lay something on you tonight you might not know. I called: I know! He said something like: Yeah some of you have looked (early). This is one of the two songs of Keith played and the live debut of this song, which is only taped on a few bootlegs of him. Some songs of the show are used by the Stones in official releases. Like I Can’t Turn You Loose. Which was very very great. At the end they started it over again. And when they ended the song and Mick walked back, Charlie played on, forcing Mick to come back. What a finale of this concert.
But also all the other songs not often played were so great to witness. And so good they didn’t played the inevitable Satisfaction
. Nice they played Worried About You, Stray Cat Blues, Everybody Needs Somebody To Love, Dance Pt. 1, That’s How Strong My Love Is, Goin’ To A Go-Go besides the “warhorses” (stupid word, but that’s what lots of people call them) Not to forget a great great performance of Can’t You Hear Me Knockin’. Mick playing harp on it, which he didn’t do all the time, like in 2022 were he didn’t. And Bobby Keyes playing sax and the others want him to stretch his solo even more, but he refused (with a smile
The only show thus far for me coming close to this one was the Hard Rock Hotel Hollywood, Florida, November 23rd of 2021 where I also stand in front of Mick & Keith and the others. Also a low stage and close to the barrier, but not as low and close as in Cirkus Krone. What setlist concerns, only Paradiso May 27th of 1995 was better for me. But that show I was sadly not in site of Paradiso, but only at the Museum Plein. But I’ve been to shows where I stood further more in the back and from the soundsystem….
