“I can’t get no satisfaction, But I try, and I try, and I try, and I try
I can’t get no, no, no, no…”
Anybody out there who doesn’t know this song? If you don’t then you’re a newborn or a toddler. I think everyone knows this song, sung by the Rolling Stones.
I have never been a big Stones lover per say, but I did like their music. No one can forget Mick Jagger. If you have seen his performance once, then you know who he is forever.
Can you believe they are starting their 50th anniversary tour? WOW….. I bet they feel old… But hey, they just keep on going…
The Rolling stones started out their 50th anniversary tour at the 02 Arena in London. Over 20,000 fans flocked to this concert where the Stones gave over a 2 hour concert of their hits. Mary J. Blige joined Mick in a duet of “Gimme Glitter”.
The Stones were also joined by other former band members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor, who performed with the original group, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood. They haven’t been together in 20 years. This must have been a great concert for the Stones followers, who loved them from the beginning, and to have the whole group together in 20 years was probably a dream come true.
The group started out in Dartford, England just outside of London. Mick Jagger stated, “It took 50 years to get from Dartford to Greenwhich. But you know we made it. What’s even more amazing is that you’re still coming to see us….We can’t thank you enough”
I think what’s amazing is that they are still touring after 50 years, and Mick Jagger actually thanked his fans for sticking with them. I mean come on people, how many groups still tour after 50 years? How many members of groups are still alive after 50 years, I will bet there are members of groups from the Rolling Stones era that can’t get one or two members of their old group to tour, and if they can, can they still sing? Mick Jaggers voice never seems to change…. He still has the moves. If he has arthritis, it sure doesn’t show. I wish the Rolling Stones the best of luck on their tour. If anyone can pull it off, it’s Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones.
For the record, there were complaints about the cost of the seats. Prices ranged from $150-$1000 for a VIP seat. Mick Jagger stated, “Everybody all right there in the cheap seats. They’re not really cheap though now are they? That’s the trouble”….. I hope he’s not saying they should be priced higher……
