ROLLING STONES NIGHT #1 (6/18/13)
Posted 6/19/2013 12:52:00 PM

First a million thanks to Ike and everyone at Comcast-Spectacor for the inside hook-up for the show last night! Made it rock!!!

Awesome to see so many of you at Camp Satisfaction on Tuesday, and it is always fun to team up with my bruthaman, Andre Gardner! The reason for our little camp site is two fold: celebrate the world's greatest rock n' roll band, AND to gather food for Philabundance's efforts to feed the hungry, right here in Philly!

Here's the set list for night #1:

Get Off My Cloud (a little rocky at the start, but Keith found his groove and the sound was quickly whipped into shape - Philly guy at the board, by the way!))

It’s Only Rock and Roll (crackling with energy!)

Paint It Black (incredible use of the stage and lights to compliment the song)

Gimme Shelter (Lisa Fischer...OFF-THE-HOOK! Say no more..wink, wink!)

Wild Horses (a Philly fave, and perfomed so eloquently!)

Dead Flowers (with Brad Paisley, who not only delivered his duet part well, vocally, but also added some killer Twang! on his solo)

Emotional Rescue (a rare airing in Philly. Many said it was the first they'd seen them play it)

Doom and Gloom (I like this new song from Grrrr! and they did it well)

One More Shot (another new one, which was solid, and shows why they are considering new recordings)

Honky Tonk Women (Maximum cowbell allowed by law)

You Got the Silver (Keith's laid back flash on this one was brilliant. when the crowd cheered for him, he says, "Hey, it's YOUR birthday!" That was a reference to Jagger wishing Philadelphia a happy 331st birthday!)

Before They Make Me Run (rollicking good fun! Ya gotta have at least two from Keith, right?)

Midnight Rambler (highlight of my night, with Mick Taylor tearing it up his Gibson on the solo)

Miss You (Ya can't go wrong with this one, even with the jazzy, laid back arrangement that they offered)

Start Me Up (The crowd was already in high gear by the time they started this one up)

Tumbling Dice (Large, phat rendition of this Exile classic)

Brown Sugar (Do I even have to comment?)

Sympathy For The Devil (Jagger prancing, in his full length faux fur duster)

 

Encore:

You Can’t Always Get What You Want (with The Crossing choir assisting. It was beautiful. Killer sing-a-long!)

Jumpin’ Jack Flash (not a soul in their seat at this point)

Satisfaction (Mick Taylor back to finish with a trademark fury!)

 

Friday night will be The Last Time we shall see an absolute Philadelphia favorite after 48 years of playing our town. Come early, party too much, donate to Philabundance, make an ass of yourself on the air with Andre & I... we won't get the chance to party with The Stones again in our city. Loved Tuesday, can't wait for Friday!!!
