STP was a big deal. I got a postcard somewhere saying I didn't win tickets. Wish I had.. Somewhere I have a cassette copy which is rumored to be a best of 72/73 tour of Australia compiled for the band and lifted from Keith. When I find it I'll offer it to someone here to clean up if it's truly unusual. It's a full 90 minutes and a board tape, it was my go to for years,

yes please do..id be interested to see if it contains something unheard of...
thanks

I saw them in Hawaii in 1793. They were great, but I don't think they caught the Beatles until the turn of the 19th century.

72 -- sent in a million postcards, got a winner (for MSG), went to get the tix and was handed an envelope with 4 floor seats for 7/26 ($6.50 each). On the day of the show you could not get on the MSG block without a ticket (there was real fear of a Hells Angels reprisal for being blamed for Altamont), could only get crap weed in those days so dropped acid for the show, amazing, amazing experience, went home and played Exile for like 5 years nonstop. Still here, 50 shows later.

Did George Washington do the introduction before they came on stage at any of the shows during the 1792 tour? You know like Bill Clinton did at The Beacon as seen on Shine a Light.

In 1792 they didnĀ“t have a B-stage.

But they played a mini set on a boat, crossing the Delaware river. The crowd on the river bank went nuts!

A truly great tour! They also toured France as the monarchy was being toppled. That's when they first wrote and performed Street Fighting Man, which was their opener:

Hey! Said my name is called Disturbance
I'll shout and scream, I'll kill the King, I'll rail at all his servants

Excellent post!

That was the tour when Keith was strong enough to carry his own baggage.

Actually it was during 'Sympathy for the Devil' that the French Revolution broke out. And Mick said "...always something funny happens when we start that number..."

It was a huge tour. I heard that they used more than 20 whales for the lighting.

This has turned in to the best post ever! Maybe the theme of the next tour should be based around the 1792 era, that would just be amazing! just imagine some of their stage outfits.

This tour will be the final highlight for Chuck! Disguised as The Pathfinder "Natty Bumppo" he can play his saloon piano as loud as possible!

On this tour they discovered Lisa.
She was being badly flogged by some red necks so Mick, ever the gentleman, stepped in...and showed them how it should be done.

I heard some the founding fathers sang backing vocals at some of the shows, anyone know if this is true? And apparently the liberty bell was used at one of the shows.

Slightly OT but what about the 1862-1863 tour anyone remember that? It took much longer to get about in those days so a tour of America would last over a year. The tour was cut short at the end of 62 due to them being unable to get equipment in from England because of the blockade and there was a shortage of mules and horses for transporting all of the equipment at the beginning of the tour. But rumour has it they were liable to pay US taxes due to the length of the tour so they cut the tour short and resumed it in the summer of 65. At the start of 1863 they returned to England and did a short tour of Europe lasting just over a year. In 1871 they were forced to leave England and become tax exiles for the first time. At the final show of the 1871 Farewell England tour they played at the Royal Albert Hall which had just completed construction that month.

I heard the mead was really strong on that tour. Really gave Keith that extra shot.

the 1792 tour-- i recall many complaints about the set list-- too many warhorses, keith was thought to be finished, the stones hadn't put out any new materail in a century, and were releasing their 10th compilations album...

During the 2nd show on September 20, 1792, Jagger hailed the heroes of Valmy, citizen volunteers who had just helped defeat the invading Prussian army intent on marching to Paris and snuffing out the young revolution. "Something very nice happened today. Does anyone know what happened today? France got free today."

Surviving pamphlets cannot confirm the rumor that the band played an impromptu "Salt of the Earth" in response to the news.

Wow,
this thread is really bringing back the memories.

I was searching through some old boxes and found this photo of Keith and Ronnie sharing a quick drink before the Plymouth Rock show:





Good times!

The band had a following among the British aristocracy from very early days - here's Bill at Kew Palace around 1789 demonstrating bass technique to some very well-bred young ladies.
