Review by Simon Emmerson

It´'s very easy for a single guy to miss a flight in BA,worse still miss a Stones gig.Thankfully I arrived in the nick of time.

This was the rainy gig!The rain actually got heavier throughout the evening,yet strangely stopped once the guys had left the stage.

On arrival at the River Plate Stadium there was a tension in the air.The rain was heavy and the taxi driver is telling me to be careful.There are hordes of youths jostling the crowd who are entering.Police with riot shields and batons stand by.This is the Street fighting man gig ,but we do not get the song.On approaching the stadium I feel uneasy.People are having their tickets snatched ,and I am glad to get into the stadium safely.

The Stones delay their entrance by 30 minutes,and its around 10 pm when they arrive on stage belting out Jumping Jack Flash.And" I cried at my ma in the driving rain "takes on a whole new meaning.Mick is in raincoat and hat and moves around the stage extra carefully.Keef is wearing a hat too,and Ronnie seems to be oblivious to it.And Charlie is sheltered away,but produces an umbrella during his intro and at the final bow.Quite comical.

The audience are still wild but its not as wild as the previous night.The rain never stops.Keef appears to be eager to get home,and even hurries Mick along and says "I could stand and talk for hours but it's raining and I have a show to do."

The rain actually gets hevier throughout the show.It's torrential rain,but the Stones don't let this detract from their performance or willingness to please.The audience don't care about the rain .The vibe in the stadium is good,a total contrast to the one outside. And the highlights for me has to be Start me up,the whole field are jumping up and down going crazy.Get off my cloud on the B stage was a true delight.

They play miss you as the stage moves to the centre.It appears to get stuck,and the band are quite cool about it.Mick changes the lyrics to Argentinian girls are dying to meet you. Lisa does a great vocal on Gimme Shelter,and the crowd sing along to Angie.Nice to hear Bitch and Shes so cold too.

At the encore we get Mick all alone in the torrential rain singing YCAGWUW.Amazing. The final number is Satisfaction.The Glimmer twins are ignoring the heavy downpour and take the show up a gear.Mick is in his open shirt driving the fans crazy.

And the song for tonight of course Rain fall down.Funky and jazzy.Well done Daryl. Another great gig at the River Plate.Outside the stadium the tension is back.There are battles between youths and Police.But the true Street fighting men were long gone.Thanks guys.See you in Europe.


Review by Lucas Ansalone (SeNdEr), Villa Maria, Cordoba, Argentina

How can i start?, the show was amazing, the rain gave a magic touch, a magic feeling to the show, it was perfect, the Stones with the Rain.

The band was very in was on FIRE!!!!!!, Mick seems to be happy and he talked to the people a lot of time, asking if they were feeling good in spanish: "La están pasando bien?", or "Tirenlen la ropa a Ronnie", he also asked about the rain: "Se mojaron mucho?"

It was a basic setlist, i think the first show had a better setlist than this but i think it was ok, because people knew almost all songs.

You Got Me Rocking was very very welcome by the crowd, they sang with Mick every word of the song.

Oh No Not You Again: The new album had very good reception here because people sang this song and danced with Mick.

Shes So Cold: Mmm i dont like this song too much but it has a lot of power live, and i think it works very well and people seems to love it.

Angie: Keith has played the intro very bad we didnt know witch song was until Mick started to sing "Angie...."

Rain Fall Down: Maybe the best song of the new album, IT WORK SO GREAT LIVE, people love it!!!!!!!, it sounds beautifull.

Gimme Shelter was so great, with Lisa singing with Mick it was perfect, i cried all the song, i couldnt believe it, i just love Gimme Shelter, and it is perfect live.

Keith in his set was ok, it was the same, he played the same songs both shows but i think he was better on tuesday show, on thurday show his voice was not good.

People love warhorses, Miss You, Start Me Up, Symphaty, Brown Sugar and You Cant Always...

Satisfaction was SO SO SO SO AWESOME!!!, THE CROWD GONE WILD!!!!!, it was amazing, i had never seen anything like that!!!, it was incredible.

I have no words for this show, i will never forget, thank you stones for coming back, i hope to see you again!!!!!


Review by Gabriel Cócaro

El jueves 23 de febrero Los Rolling Stones dieron su último recital en Argentina. Nadie quería faltar a la despedida, por eso el Estadio de River Plate volvió a reventar de gente. Todo estaba listo para la fiesta de despedida aunque en esta jornada hubo una invitada no esperada que complico un poco las cosas: la lluvia. Es que durante todo el día llovió con persistencia en toda la ciudad y eso tuvo sus efectos: el público, más allá de su amor incondicional por la banda, estuvo un poco menos eufórico que en el primer recital, Mick Jagger tuvo que regular su perfomance escénica evitando sus clásicas corridas de una punta a la otra del escenario y la banda, en algunos pasajes del show, sonó un tanto desajustada.

De todas formas, el concierto fue increíble. La ceremonia comenzó (al igual que el martes pasado) con "Jumping Jack Flash e "It`s only rock and roll", pero en la tercera canción se produjo la primera variación en la lista de temas: "Shattered" fue reemplazado por la muy efectiva "You got me rocking", la única canción de los '90 hecha por la banda en los dos recitales argentinos. Un dato significativo: revela que la banda sabe muy bien que sus páginas de gloria (en lo que a discos de estudio se refiere) no fueron escritas en la década anterior.

A "Oh no, not you again" le siguieron dos maravillosas sorpresas ausentes el día del debut: "She's so cold" y "Angie". La primera fue bailada y coreada por todo el estadio y la segunda seguida con devoción mientras el público iluminaba el estadio con sus encendedores. A continuación, "Rain fall down" un tema más que apropiado para la jornada, la lluvia caía sin parar y Mick repetía ese estribillo ("and the rain fall down...") que todos sentían en su piel. Luego, los Stones arremetieron con uno de los temas más calientes de la noche: "Bitch", una versión alucinante con Jagger contorsionando su cuerpo y la banda - y la sección de vientos - sonando en forma ajustada.

"Tumbling Dice" volvió a hacer vibrar al estadio y "Gimme shelter" (otro momento supremo de la noche) permitió el lucimiento de la corista Lisa Fischer, su voz poderosa y su imagen sensual arrancó merecidos aplausos El set de Richards fue similar al del concierto anterior con "This place is empty" y "Happy". El desempeño vocal de Keith fue mejor en esta oportunidad, aunque hubiera sido interesante que variara alguno de los dos temas por joyas como por ejemplo, "Before they make me run" que sí tocó con los Winos en el Estadio de Velez Sarfield, en noviembre de 1992.

Cuando sonaron los primeros acordes de "Miss you" todo el estadio se convirtió en una gran disco, mientras una parte del escenario depositaba a los músicos en el centro de la cancha. Una vez allí el rock and roll siguió con "Rough justice" (Mick cantaba y al mismo tiempo devolvía al público las remeras que éste tiraba en señal de tributo) y con la joya de la noche: "Get off of my cloud", en una versión que al principio costó reconocer debido a un nuevo arreglo de guitarra pero que luego fue cantada y saltada por la multitud.

La banda volvió al escenario principal al ritmo de "Honky Tonk Women", una vez allí la máquina rockera no paró gracias a una seguidilla de hits fulminantes: "Sympathy for the devil", "Start me up" (en la que Jagger se equivocó empezando a cantar el estribillo de la canción antes de tiempo, pero bueno así es el rock and roll a veces !!!) y "Brown sugar". El final formal del concierto se había producido, pero apenas unos segundos después la banda volvió para los bises de rigor: "You can't always get what you want" y "Satisfaction" que dejaron al público feliz y con la certeza de haber formado parte de un momento histórico.

Los Stones pasaron por Argentina, la tercera visita de la banda dejó a todos los que presenciaron sus conciertos la sensación de que si esta vez fue la última (con éstos chicos nunca se sabe) la despedida ha sido hermosa.

Long live for The Rolling Stones !.
