Review by Dean Goodman

A bluesy night in the country as the Stones returned to Little Rock for the first time since November 1994, and rolled out �Dead Flowers,� �Back of My Hand,� �Midnight Rambler� and �(The Night Time is) The Right Time.� Of course, Arkansas is very special in the Stones annals, thanks to Keith and Ron�s infamous traffic stop in the small town of Fordyce in 1975. After Keith was introduced to raucous cheers, he asked, �Anyone here from Fordyce? I used to know the chief of police there.�

The show took place amid thunderstorm alerts, but the weather was calm as we trooped into the Alltel Arena. I was fortunate to sit next to an excited 22-year-old lap-dancer who had driven eight hours from Kansas, and I knew there was no way the show could suck. Country legend Merle Haggard got things off to a great start, and Mick thanked him before dusting off �Dead Flowers,� the first of two consecutive songs on which he played guitar (followed by the welcome return of �Back of My Hand�).

Mick did not say much during the show, apart from noting the 12-year absence, and sardonically commenting, �You haven�t changed a bit. You look fantastic.� The crowd, indeed, was more rowdy than the Los Angeles people on Monday, not needing much incentive to sing along with such tunes as �Brown Sugar� and �You Can�t Always Get What You Want.�

This was the 37th and last show I saw on the Americas leg of the �Bigger Bang� tour, and I�m glad that �Satisfaction� finally sounds like it should. Keith is brandishing a white guitar that Ronnie plays in some earlier tunes, and the song packs a lot more heft.
