- Mick Jagger is still the ideal front man better than 95% of bands out there. (If he really is 71) he’s still a running, dancing, screaming, singing, sexy beast enjoying it like day 1
- Despite their age they still put on a show well worth the outrageous ticket price
- Keith Richards and Ronny Wood were as sharp as ever creating a powerful swinging wall of blues-rock sounds
- “Miss you” is the best 70s dance song ever, “Satisfaction” is still so contemporary that it would beat “Happy” 10-0 as single of the year if it was out today
- It might be their last tour ever and there were at least 3 generation of rockers in Zurich to catch the last train to see one of the best live band of history
Yesterday before the concert I heard somebody saying that they are still touring at their age for money. Looking at the 48000 tickets priced above 150fr we might agree, but then the concert starts, the light goes on the stage, Keith Richard starts pinning blues web in his unique style, Mick starts singing while doing the cock dance move. You get into trip of over 2 hours of music, dance, laugh, strange jokes in german from Mick. While they sing those songs for the 12834th time and repeat those dance moves that they have brought at their finest over 50 of training around the biggest stages of the world you understand that there’s maybe another reason while they are still touring at 71 years old.
THEY ARE STILL HAVING FUN!
And so we all had, yesterday night at Letzigrund, in Zurich, Switzerland.
