Stones roll on
By Austin Powell

Wearing his second jacket of the evening, jet black over a maroon button-down shirt, and with a lit cigarette dangling from his lips, legendary guitarist Keith Richards took center stage at the American Airlines Center in Dallas midway through the Rolling Stones' performance.

"This one is called 'Infamy,'" Richards said dully. "It's off that new thing ... 'A Bigger Bang.'"

The Stones' 25th record, which was released in September, debuted at No. 2 in the U.K. After just one week, the album disappeared from the top ten.

The Rolling Stones do not need a new album to tour behind to sell out arenas. Since their last release, "Bridges to Babylon" in 1997, which failed to make its way into Tuesday night's set list, the Stones have been on the road consistently through the release of their 2002 career-spanning compilation "Forty Licks" and 2004's "Live Licks."

"A Bigger Bang" is not just another album attempting to rehash their '60s rock roots and it should be remembered for more than just a few years. It may very well be the best record the group has released in at least 20.

"Oh No, Not You Again," one of the more guitar-heavy, rollicking tracks on the album, and "Rain Fall Down," a groovy throwback track with disco flair, sounded like the latest installments in a greatest-hits compilation next to classics like the opening number "Start Me Up" and "Tumbling Dice."

"Rough Justice," their current single and only other album track performed that evening, sounded fierce and raw, like music for a 21st-century street-fighting man.

But in all honesty, it didn't matter. The night was not about judging whether or not the Stones could still create great music, but simply experiencing a part of rock 'n' roll history.

Larger than life, the Rolling Stones bellowed through their best upon an enormous, bare stage. Mick Jagger strutted down the built-in catwalk, proudly shook his hips with his legendary androgyny and belted out "Wild Horses" and a much appreciated, soulful rendition of Ray Charles' "Night Time Is The Right Time," backed by a four-piece brass outfit.

As if raising the rock gods toward the heavens, the stage levitated at the end of the night and drove itself to the other end of the arena. Up close and personal, the Stones delivered their most engaging songs of the evening with the whooping "Miss You" and "Get Off of My Cloud," retreating back with "Honky Tonk Woman."

Immersed in sinister red lighting, the Stones gave their "Sympathy for the Devil" and swooned the crowd with "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

Confetti poured over the audience and the Rolling Stones went out with a bang as the night came to a close with "Satisfaction." Was it a bigger bang than what's come to be expected of the legends? Probably not, but the audience most certainly got licked.

Mystery surrounds country star MERLE HAGGARD's last-minute decision not to open up for the ROLLING STONES in Dallas, Texas last night (29NOV05).

The rugged singer pulled out of the show earlier in the day, prompting promoters to call on DELBERT McCLINTON to take his place.

Haggard's handlers are still scratching their heads about his decision, insisting there seems to be nothing wrong with the singer/songwriter's health - the usual reason given for late concert cancellations.

The Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger lets it loose at American Airlines Center on Tuesday.


With a loose, fast, powerful set that includes surprises, Rolling Stones show that age hasn't slowed them down


Star-Telegram staff writer

DALLAS -- Prancing, preening, strutting, pouting, Mick Jagger burst onto the American Airlines Center stage Tuesday night and for the next two hours held 20,000 people in the palm of his bony hand.

Say what you want about the Rolling Stones being too old to rock 'n' roll, but if you've dismissed these blokes, you've done it prematurely.

This was loud, loose, fast, sloppy stuff, with the band's scruffiness and Jagger's intonations and insinuations ensuring that even war horses such as Brown Sugar sounded fresh as Jagger incited the audience to a chorus of "Yeah, yeah, yeah, woos!"

Often, when rock acts do the sing-along-with-me bit, it comes off as pandering, but Jagger just seemed to be caught up in the moment, as did the band's staggering, grinning, swooping guitarists, Keith Richards and Ron Wood. Drummer Charlie Watts played the eye-of-the-storm role as always, keeping everything from disintegrating.

Jagger got going early, with a hurricane of harp blows on a typically epic Midnight Rambler, amped with adrenalin as the song shifted gears through myriad tempo changes.

That song has always been one of the creepiest of the many creepy things in the Stones' canon, and it was a little bizarre to see guys singing to their dates what I've always interpreted as a rape fantasy. But then, this is a band about the dark side, and one that can still get an audience to whoop through the equally creepy Sympathy for the Devil.

The only lull came during Richards' two vocal numbers, Slippin' Away and the new Infamy. Although Richards sang them as well as his ravaged voice allowed, the songs seemed to be there to allow Jagger a break and some crowd members a chance to get more beer. But the moment Jagger was on stage, things charged up again, as he performed one of his best vocals of the night on Miss You, and a section of the stage parted, complete with all the core band, and moved to the center of the arena for the guys to play stuff like Get Off My Cloud in the round.

The set list contained few surprises, although a Ray Charles tribute -- Jagger and backup singer Lisa Fisher doing a duet on Night Time is the Right Time -- was a good touch. And the band performed several songs from its latest album, A Bigger Bang, the highlight arguably being Rain Fell Down, featuring a thumping solo from bassist Daryl Jones. A four-piece horn section added punch to many other numbers.

If the songs were a little predictable -- you know they're going to do Satisfaction and Start Me Up -- the execution wasn't. Jagger played to every member of the crowd that he could reach, the band took no prisoners, and the Stones gave every indication that they could still be doing shows like this in 2015.

Fort Worth's Delbert McClinton, subbing for ill opener Merle Haggard, laid out a confident 45-minute opening set. McClinton's voice was as rich as it's ever been, and he sang to an arena that was more than half-empty as if he were singing to a full house. Not bad for a last-minute turn by a homeboy.

Pop review: All eyes were on Mick

Stones' frontman makes up for shaky sounds

01:07 PM CST on Wednesday, November 30, 2005

By THOR CHRISTENSEN / The Dallas Morning News

If you hit 62 and have one-tenth the energy Mick Jagger has, consider yourself very lucky. Tuesday night at American Airlines Center, the whirling, twirling Sir Mick put to shame the lip-syncing Britneys of the world who can't sing and dance at the same time.

Mr. Jagger was a two-hour-long whirlwhind – sashaying, spaz-dancing, bum-wiggling and flapping his arms as if he was going lift off. He was like a rooster on a meth binge – and you couldn't take your eyes off him.

What did you think of the show?

The Mick Jagger Show more than made up for some haphazard guitar spots from Ron Wood and Keith Richards. Granted, much of the Stones' charm lies in Ronnie and Keef's rough edges – their ability to sound tight without sounding slick.

Yet their playing got so ramshackle that "Wild Horses" and "Brown Sugar" sounded like the first day of rehearsals. Mr. Richards – sporting his usual death-warmed-over look – also reminded us during "Slipping Away" he's not much of a ballad singer.

Quibbles aside, there was no shortage of brilliant moments – like the hellfire 10-minute version of "Midnight Rambler," the gospel-fied ending of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and Mr. Jagger's unhinged duet with singer Lisa Fisher on Ray Charles' "Night Time is the Right Time." Charlie Watts was a show in himself, a lesson in how to be rock's best drummer without ever drawing attention to yourself.

Performing their first North Texas show in eight years, the Stones continued their trend of a playing some songs at the back of the arena. As they thumped and bumped through "Miss You," they floated across the main floor like they were on a slow-moving flatbed truck. After the mini-stage stopped moving, they broke into "Rough Justice," a wicked new blues rocker worthy of Exile on Main Street. Equally impressive was "Rain Fall Down," a haunting jangle-funk strut from A Bigger Bang.

They skipped "Sweet Neo Con," a jab at George W. Bush. But the Prez came up when Mr. Jagger proclaimed Dallas "the home of the Mavericks! The home of the Cowboys! And the home of George Bush!" – which drew a hearty round of boos. But as Mr. Jagger put it, two out of three ain't bad.
