The Stones are back and rolling out live to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Yes, it’s true. Not quite a tour, but select dates in three cities. Hope your checking account can handle the prime seating prices. Some tickets are going for over $2000. Also released, another greatest hits collection with two new cuts. Doom and Gloom and One More Shot are the offerings seven years after The Bigger Bang. Not to mention the release of their latest documentary, Crossfire Hurricane. So is this it? The last stand from our rock heros, destine to ride off into the sunset after slaying the beast and winning the world. A fitting exit for the greatest band ever. The glow will last forever. Oh, and book some time to tour the Rolling Stone archive for your home satisfaction.
The Who rocked the house in Orlando. The Saturday night, Nov. 3rd. show left the audience in awe of the rock gods that just performed before them. Both into their 60’s, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend again prove they have what it takes to rock. This tour is a fantastic effort between two friends that have taken the amazing journey. This final presentation of Quadrophenia is a visual look back with The Who. The large video screen behind the stage grandly displays scenes of the ocean, and newsreel video. Taking one back in time with their tour guides. John Entwistle makes special appearance for 515, and Keith Moon appears for Bellboy. After the chilling Love, Reign O’er Me, the boys tore into a set with Baba O’Riley, The Kids Are Alright, Anyway Anyhow Anywhere, Behind Blue Eyes, Who Are You, Won’t Get Fooled Again, and finally Tea & Theatre. The band traveling with Roger and Pete are familiar faces. Simon Townshend on guitar, bassist Pino Palladino, drummer Zak Starkey, keyboardist Chris Stainton. This team sounds awesome, and shouldn’t be missed. You still have time.
