Tokyo - First Night 2014 [New Tattoo Records, 2CD]

Live at the Tokyo Dome, Bunkyo, Tokyo, Japan; February 26, 2014. Very good to excellent audience recording.

First of three nights at the Tokyo Dome 2014.

Comments and picture by Bjornulf Vik at

I am all a big smile. The crowd has been great ever since they started queuing for merchandise this morning. Mick has been consuming their energy from the start. Keith has been constantly in front of Charlie song by song now. Keith is just stepping forward when he has got something important to say - through his guitar. And again and again, he is there with his angry smile, belting out his famous riffs. Sometimes with a false start like on It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll, but it is part of the show and I would not even bother, he is on track with the next riff, and the band is so tight tonight.

It is these rare moments when Mick just go into a higher energy level. Like on Brown Sugar, a song many people just read from the set list and say “boooring”… So sad. Tonight Brown Sugar is on fire. The crowd is singing. Mick is running. Keith is riffing. Ronnie and Charlie doing their job. The band are on and the crowd are on. Mick is just returning from the long walk out into the center of the venue. Then he is running over to the far Keith side on our right. Then he just decides this is it - he starts speed running in what I would say is like a real sprint all through the center and way over to the other side of the Tokyo Dome. The rest of the band stand still thank God. At that speed accidents may happen if he bumps into somebody. Energy! But the crowd loves it. Mick is close to everyone tonight!

Thanks to 092010 who shared the show at Dime; and to flipp022 for sharing it on the net.

  2. Thank you!!! They still sound pretty damn good for a bunch of elderly gentlemen.

  3. The slower version of Sympathy for the Devil rivals the one on Get Your Ya Ya’s Out, which may be the single greatest performance this band ever gave. They play is looser and funkier than most of the constrained versions heard on official and bootleg live sets. Keith’s guitar stings here…

  4. you know what guys it might be time to call it.As much as i hate to say it , 40 years of brown sugar in the setlists just might be enough.
    You have nothing left to prove, this doesn`t even sound like the Stones to me.
    The Stones,wow ,remember hearing that The Stones was coming back in the day now that was an event, now..not so much. Your swagger is gone and you wrote your best material 40 years ago.
    I am a lifelong fan but enough is enough.

  5. definitely with you on this one sarge…

  9. since zep isnt posted here any longer i thought some important news would fit -

    By darth on Mar 14, 2014

  10. The reissue of Led Zep 1 album will have the 10/10/69 concert at Olympia in Paris as a bonus disc, including the missing Moby Dick as track 8. Before Jimmy Page’s attorney intervened, that concert was available here as a pre-FM version (no DJ),

  11. @Job Hunter - that one took a couple of seconds to register with my slow brain, then I laughed my ass off… good one :)

    By LaughingCow on Mar 15, 2014

  12. They still got it.Naysayers to the contrary,40 years in and Brown Sugar sounds better than ever.One can never get enough.

    By dave's not here on Apr 5, 2014

  13. @dave i dont know what exactly what you’re hearing but if you say they still got it then believe it…

    because i dont…

    they sound like a shell of themselves…!!!

    By Jerry's Finger on Apr 5, 2014

  14. if I want to hear the real stones I just pull out beggars or let it bleed or exile or sticky…

    By dropkick sarge on Apr 5, 2014

  15. i concur sarge…

    and for the most part historically the stones have always been a tighter studio band while being a sloppy live band…although yes it was an event spectacle to go see them a show live…entertainment they call it lol…

    but unfortunately its time now…

    By Jerry's Finger on Apr 5, 2014

  16. I hear ya dave.Good to see Emotional Rescue here-their 80s material was the best…
