The Rolling Stones - Honolulu 1966

Image
The Rolling Stones 1966 American Tour was the last concert tour by the Stones with Brian Jones in the United States.

The band had played 29 concerts in just over a month arriving in Honolulu to conclude the tour.

Back in England, one politician announces "Our relationship with the United States runs the risk of getting considerably worse as soon as The Rolling Stones arrive in America... Americans will believe that English young people have attained a new degree of degeneration and that this country is being recklessly ruined."

Having released 'Aftermath' in the spring of 1966, the first Stones album with all Jagger - Richards compositions, not surprisingly the tour featured a number of songs from the album.

This then is The Rolling Stones on the 28th July 1966, live in concert in Honolulu, USA, from a recording circulated as 'So Much Younger Than Today' by The Swingin' Pig (TSP 012).

Set list is:

1. Intro / Not Fade Away
2. The Last Time
3. Paint It Black
4. Lad…

Paul McCartney - Liverpool 1st June 2008

This one could well be on a couple of Beatles fans music blogs already, but having listened, it is well worth sharing here on Beehive Candy.

Paul McCartney performed live in Liverpool
on Sunday (1st June 2008), as part of Liverpool's 'year of culture' events.

The Liverpool 08 website summed up the concert as follows:

'Anfield football ground witnessed one of the greatest nights in its history on 1 June 2008 - with a stunning concert by Sir Paul McCartney to celebrate the city's year as European Capital of Culture.

Brilliantly supported by The Kaiser Chiefs and The Zutons, the ex-Beatle - who last played in Liverpool exactly five years ago - gave a magical show with a blockbuster set of hits from his Fab Four, Wings and solo career that had the sold-out stadium on its feet for a full two hours.

With touching tributes to George Harrison - on 'Blackbird' and 'Something' - and Linda, mingled with raucous renditions of 'Hey Jude' and 'Live and Le…

The Killers - Live In Santiago 2007

Time for something more recent, in this case The Killers, live in Santiago, Chile last year.

The Killers are of course an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, who it may be fair to say have combined music styles from the 1980s and 1990s with modern synthetic music.

Formed in 2002 and made up of Brandon Flowers (vocals, keyboards), Dave Keuning (guitar, vocals), Mark Stoermer (bass guitar, vocals) and Ronnie Vannucci Jr., (drums, percussion), they released their debut album, Hot Fuss, in 2004.

Their second album, Sam's Town, was released in 2006.

The compilation album Sawdust, containing B-sides, rarities, and some new material, was released in 2007.

Their first two albums to date have sold in excess of 12 million copies worldwide combined.

OK that's enough 'stuff' courtesy of good old 'Wiki', so hopefully it's predominately accurate, if accurate is your bag.

This is the band live at the Fenix festival Arena, Santiago, Chile, on the 4th November 2007.
