Mick Jagger and his family paid tribute to the Beatles during their performance at Anfield stadium. Didto mi.
“It was a sacred lease! “How long have we waited to get back here?” On stage at Anfield, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards spent two hours expressing their love for Liverpool and the joy of meeting their audience there for the first time since… 1972, the date of their last concert here. “Others”, who, in the end, could only be their opponent without a sixth of their career, have been separated for two years.
In a city that prides itself, in complete humility, on having two of the most famous clubs in the world, “The Cavern”, there was born the myth of the Beatles and FC Liverpool, the “Reds”, Mick Jagger, for two. days, multiplied “teases”: shots on Matthew Street, in front of the statue of Cilla, local glory, former lady-wee of “The cavern” before making a nice little career in different, snapshot in front of the Empire Theater, the ‘Liverpuldian Olympia and the Three Graces, three emblematic Skyline buildings from the beginning of the 20th century. “I’ve been in Liverpool for a long time – looking forward to Anfield tomorrow night!”, Tweeted, Wednesday, for his fans to call here Sir Michael Philip Jagger.
Stopping on the cliffs of the Mersey, opus 3 of the “Sixty Tour”, which proudly highlights the age of the group, is undoubtedly the most symbolic of the fourteen dates on the European tour. Stadium subscribers benefit from priority ticketing. Mick Jagger, football fan and unconditional supporter of the English selection, wants it personal.
A tribute to Charlie Watts
When the concert starts, like in Madrid and Berlin, with a tribute to Charlie Watts – “the first time we came to England without him” – we are very quickly reassured about the vitality of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ron Wood. , 231 years between them. At the age that the thorax loses its axis, the spleens dilate and the sternum loses its penetration, the three stone brontosaurs are not ready for diaper trust and bingo nights. They are in great shape. It can be seen. Wasp waist, teenager shaking, Mick Jagger multiplied sprints and the undiscovered on the podium.
The audience, who had already won, consisted of fans ranging in age from 27 to 87 with excessive representation of silver manes and slightly loose bellies. You have to wait 20 minutes to buy a collector’s T-shirt for 50 euros. No wearing earplugs. We are here to listen to good sound and avoid it
On the fourth track, Jagger suggested that the group play an interpretation of “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, an old pattern by Gerry and the Pacemakers, another local group and above all the anthem of the Reds football team. “But we decided to cover a song written by other guys in the region,” the Stones leader said enthusiastically. So we did it especially for you, Liverpool, okay? “.
And the group will launch “I Wanna Be Your Man”, the classic song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, but originally released by the Rolling Stones. The Beatles songwriting duo gave it to their counterparts in 1963, helping the Stones reach number 12 on the UK charts. The Beatles version will be released three weeks later on the album ‘With the Beatles’.
In the rest of the show, our rock-scholar happy spectator at the inaugural concert in Madrid spoke it all and perfectly described the high and low of the show. They have not yet performed the seminal 1966 song “Mother’s Little Helper”, which they rehearsed for this tour. Like Madrid and Munich, the second part of the show where the Rolling Pebbles was quick to play and had a lot of it in the closet was happy to have a special mention for “Sympathy for the devil”, the most anticipated piece of the concert just for shouting, Hou, Hou, Hou Hou… Hou Hou Hou Hou
As the groups slowly returned to the stage after the encore, the whole of Anfield sang a chapella “You Can’t Walk Alone”, the “still” as the British say and the classics of the classics: “Gimme Shelter” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” Next step, Monday June 13, in Amsterdam.
