Second night of the North American leg of the Stones' "No Filter" tour. The setlist featured an astounding 7 songs that were not performed during the opening night, which is really unusual for this band. Some highlights:
- "Monkey Man" was played for the first time since 8/8/07
- "Play With Fire" was performed for only the second time since the 1990 "Steel Wheels" tour
- The rarely played "Sweet Virginia" appeared during the B-stage acoustic set. I couldn't find an exact number, but I believe this has been done less than 10 times over the last twenty years.
- Keith inadvertently started "Midnight Rambler" early, and the other guitars were tuned incorrectly. The first minute was painful and rough before Mick called it off and they reverted to "Paint it Black." Very funny moment that reminded you that these rock icons are also human.
The performance was outstanding. This was somewhere around my 40th Stones show, and I would rank it behind the Aragon Ballroom 2002 in terms of performance. They sounded better than musicians half their age, and Mick was a whirlwind of motion for the entire time he was onstage. I hope they can maintain this level of showmanship throughout the tour.
I didn't record this show, though I should have - I had "Lucky Dip" tickets ($46 apiece, thanks, Mick!) but my daughter and I went to the 200 level only about 20 feet from where I was for the first show. However, TallTaper was on the field in line with the left stack and got an excellent capture. There is a steady level of crowd chatter during the quiet moments and between songs, but the sound quality during the actual music is phenomenal. Great mix, and Keith's playing in particular shines through. The first couple songs have a few disturbances as the taper gets settled, but after that this is a superb recording.
Many thanks to TallTaper for sharing his source, and thanks to ironchef for putting up his version. Hopefully people find this to be a worthwhile alternative.
