What will be played at Waldbühne on August 3, 2022?
Above all there is an opening act. This is what they have become Ghost hounds from the US state of Pennsylvania. In this country, the Ghost Hounds are even less known. The group plays traditional earthy blues rock and released two albums from “Roses Are Black” (2019) and “A Little Calamity” (2021), which garnered critical acclaim. Bad time for this band, which was just starting to take off, when the pandemic of the crown thwarted all career plans of young musicians. But now the sextet around the vocalist of Tré Nation is set to start with even more energy, and what could be better than supporting the greatest rock band of all time?
What songs will the Stones play?
The setlists of previous shows on the band’s 60th anniversary tour show that the band will focus on their – mostly older – classics. It will likely begin with “Street Fighting Man”, a revolutionary rock song from the turbulent late 1960s, which can certainly be interpreted here as a reminiscence of the events of 1965. Besides, you can sing on this tour, usually at a good price, “Best Of”, mainly from the 60s and 70s: “Wild Horses”, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, “Honkey Tonk Women” and ” Paint It Black “and the disco hit” Miss You “and of course – in the encore block -” Sympathy To The Devil “and” Satisfaction “. This classic repertoire largely ends, like on previous The Stones tours, with the 1981 album Tattoo You.
From the later albums, there is probably only one or two songs on which guitarist Keith Richards sings. It was only after their numerous returns that the band began to regularly record songs in which Richards sings. Probably a concession to the balance of power in a band that suffered from some disagreements in the 1980s and hadn’t toured in the years after 1981.
The only current song in the permanent repertoire is the song Corona lockdown “Living In A Ghost Town”, which was unexpectedly released in 2020. But who knows, maybe the band will change its repertoire again in a short time and surprise with rarely played gems from the ensemble’s later period?
What’s next for the Stones after Charlie Watts dies?
However: The end of the stones has been foretold so often that this assessment may soon prove to be passé again. In any case, they still have some studio recordings in stock as Jagger, Richards and Co. have already leaked several times in interviews. Among them are a few songs that Charlie Watts still played. Time will tell if the old gentlemen will still be able to put it together into a complete album with the help of highly paid studio musicians and producers.
What should you consider before going to a concert in Berlin?
Are there any tickets yet?
The concert has been sold out for a long time – it started with prices from around 190 euros. But more than 700 euros had to be spent on premium seats. At this price, you can already buy some of the more modestly equipped Fender Telecaster electric guitars, such as those played by Keith Richards himself on the early Stones recordings. But the real fans of gray with the band will not be put off. Because it’s true: this might be the last chance to see the Rolling Stones live. The last, this time really the last chance …
