Rolling Stones announce more American shows for 2020
« on: February 06, 2020, 10:05:59 AM »
Im amazed they still have an appetite at their age? I wonder what is motivating them? Is it for arts sake? The love of their jobs....or greed for money? Regardless.......my own opinion is...id rather be living in the world with an active Rolling Stones band, than in a world without them. They are PROPER Legends!
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world

They've been touring every year since 2012 doing about 15 shows a year.  This would be a viable approach for U2 as they enter their 60s.

I think the Stones do it for the glory and because they get handsomely paid for it.

They probably know what happens if they stop moving.

I think if u2 knocked trying to make albums on the head and just focused on playing shows it wouldn't be the worst idea.

Stones pretty much finished making new music with 05's A Bigger Bang and at that time Jagger was about 60. Bono is coming up to 60 - of course Mick and co made a lot more music in their careers than Bono and co did, but i suppose that was a lot to do with them being in their pomps in different eras.....

The career arcs of making new music but with ever diminishing returns until aged about 60 then taking their carefully crafted live shows out a few times a year could well be similar.

I dunno - E&I for me was their worst tour effort, but SOE had some moments of brilliance on it. I’d rather them ditch touring for a while, stop writing “relevant” stuff and focus on great songwriting - songs like the little things, book of your heart and red flag day show that they still have it in them. I’ve had enough of Bono literally using the mike stand as a walking frame

They got excellent reviews down under playing their oldies.  They should try more of that rather than playing a show like E+I, half of which was made up of new songs from two relatively weak albums.

Not too sure where those moments of brilliance on SOE were....I found it the first u2 album i was happy to just delete within a mere few weeks. Even if we say ok there were 'highs' surely how low the lows were pretty much negate them as far as an album goes....The fucking best thing!....

I didn't see the E&I tour, i did see the JT show and found it mediocre - but it was in a stadium so no real surprise.....I&E shows i saw were decent enough though - of course that is 5 years ago now.

The I&E shows we’re decent - the October-bullet-zooropa-streets segment was brilliant. The decline between I&E and E&I was remarkable for me. I loved the JT stadium show for what it was, but I have little desire to see the retro stadium thing again

15 shows a year? How about 100 shows a year like Sting at age 68 does.

I thought the Experience And Innocence Tour was great, even better than the Joshua Tree Tour 2017. I prefer new and different. I think that is the way to go in the future. Be the opposite of the Rolling Stones.

Bob Dylan is the ultimate prolific touring yardstick

I must admit, I've got to admire his balls.

I think Iron Maiden does it best.

A "new stuff" tour followed by a "hits" tour. And each time throwing in some deep cut surprises.
