THE STONES ROLL INTO FLORIDA!
The One and Only Rolling Stones played the one & only show Florida show on their Zip Code Tour in Orlando on Friday night! In 1981, the Stones played the then Tangerine Bowl which has been renamed the Citrus Bowl. Tickets were $16.75 back then and Mick Jagger was 34 years younger but you couldn’t tell. He “Moves Like Jagger” in 2015!
Mick strutted the stage like he has been in a time capsule since the 80’s. He made some Disney jokes like how he had breakfast with Goofy and stayed in “Cinderella’s Castle and she left her panties”! He stuffed the microphone down his pants and danced like a Chippendale dancer, okay an older Chippendale but at 71 years old, Mr. Jagger is an impressive sight on the catwalk.
It wasn’t all about Mick either. Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts were in attendance! Keith and Ronnie played their axes and strutted down the catwalk a couple of times just to show that Mick wasn’t the only one who could do it!. Keith took a turn at lead vocals on “Happy” while Mick was doing a costume change. Charlie Watts might be sitting down for the show but truly never misses a beat. His drums speak the beat of this band. There is a highly qualified crew of sidemen and women who play brass, bass, keys and sing backround vocals. The light show and graphics were top notch along with a couple of pyrotechnics not really necessary. It is THE STONES! It is all about the music of a generation that started for American teenagers in 1964 on the Ed Sullivan show.
