This was the third time I’ve seen them, they are truly an institution. My son lives in Chicago, and got us tickets for a belated Father’s Day gift. His first concert was at this very stadium, and this very band! We took him to the Stones Bridges to Babylon tour show here over 20 years ago. How were they? LOUD! (Hell yes). We were pretty close to the stage left P.A. speakers, so we felt it. First night of the tour, and Keef was a bit sloppy on a few tunes, but the man is a living legend! Ronny seemed to have attended all the rehearsals, and he had Keith’s back. Mick has more energy than I do, by far. All in all, a great show! They seemed to be focused on delivering the vintage live versions of their classics. Guitars were loud, and front and center in the mix. Horns and keyboards were present, but these were no “Vegas” versions of the tunes. Particularly notable was Midnight Rambler. It was like being at Madison Square Garden, during the 1969 tour. They played it bluesy, and raw, and did not shorten the middle. When the tempo slows to a crawl in the middle, the guitars barely playing, Mick does a brief vocal mash up, sings a few bars of “You gotta move”. Then, the inevitable “You heard about the Boston...” Wham! Keith’s guitar sounding like a nuclear blast! Too freaking cool, man. And, speaking of Keef’s guitars, it was a veritable guitar show. Keef and Ronny both changed guitars after each song for the first five songs. They continued to rotate gear through out the concert, very cool. I was glad they brought the raw energy to the show. I’d rather hear a few sloppily played bits played with menace, than slick, watered down lounge versions! If you get a chance during this tour, pull the trigger on tickets!!
