Rolling Stones ’50 and Counting’ Tour Dates. Mick Taylor to be ‘Special Guest’ Throughout the Tour.

Posted 02 Apr 2013 in Music + TV News




The 50 and Counting tour continues….

50 and Counting has been pretty amazing so far,” Mick Jagger said in a release. “We did a few shows in London and New York last year … and had such a good time that we thought … let’s do some more. It’s a good show. Lots of the classic stuff everyone wants to hear … with a few little gems tucked in here and there. The stage is shaped like lips and goes off into the venue so I get to run around in the crowd. It’s great fun to be able to get that close to the audience.

Keith Richards added, “From day one at rehearsals it sounded so fresh. You could tell that everybody was dying to get their teeth into it. It was like … open the gates … let us out! ‘Cause man, it is the life and blood of us to play in front of people.”

Here’s some more good news about the tour. Mick Taylor will be joining them as well. Here’s a quote ““Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-74, will be a special guest throughout the tour.”

The Chicago Tribune’s Greg Kot interviewed Mick Jagger today and he asked him about Mick Taylor’s inclusion. Here’s his answer.. “He played very well as a guest in the shows last year, though he only played on one song. We had a lot of guest guitarists. It was fun trying to keep track of all of them. I was scared of announcing the wrong guy, like introducing Jeff Beck instead of Eric Clapton or something. I had to have cue cards in front of me with so many guests. Ronnie (Wood) would stand behind me saying, “You’ve got the wrong one!” But Mick Taylor played well, and he’s going to do a guest spot on this tour. I don’t know how many songs it will be.”
