Live in Concert: The Rolling Stones 50 & Counting
A special performance in Hyde Park on the Stones' 50 and Counting tour is featured this week on Live in Concert.
It's hard to believe, but the Rolling Stones marked their 50th anniversary as a band in 2012. They kicked off a world tour with two secret club gigs in Paris and wrapped it up with a joyous performance at Hyde Park in London, in front of a crowd of 130,000+ fans.
Bill Wyman was back as a special guest and Mick Taylor strapped on a guitar to join Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood on July 13, 2013 for the final night of the 50 & Counting tour which began in October of the previous year. The 18 shows grossed $87.7M as the band played some of their biggest hits. Listen Saturday night for classics like "Start Me Up," Gimme Shelter," "Sympathy for the Devil," Ruby Tuesday," and more.
Also on the bill this week is a 2012 performance from Roger Waters recorded live at Madison Square Garden in New York. Yes, you know what to expect, but fans were shocked when Eddie Vedder joined Roger for "Comfortably Numb." We've also got a pair of songs from Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Joan Jett and then Night Ranger with "Sentimental Street" and "Sister Christian" recorded live at the House of Blues in Chicago.
We don't have any live shows yet, but we're playing back some of the best every Saturday night with Live in Concert, exclusively on Kalamazoo's Rock Station 107.7 RKR.
