Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle Tour

The Rolling Stones' Steel Wheels Tour was a concert tour which was launched in North America in August 1989 to promote the band's album Steel Wheels; it continued to Japan in February 1990, with ten shows at the Tokyo Dome. The European leg of the tour, which featured a different stage and logo, was called the Urban Jungle Tour; it ran from May to August 1990. These would be the last live concerts for the band with original member Bill Wyman on bass guitar. This tour would also be the longest the band had ever done up to that point, playing over twice as many shows as their standard tour length from the 1960s and 1970s.

The tour was an enormous financial success, cementing The Rolling Stones' return to full commercial power after a seven-year hiatus in touring marked by well-publicized acrimony among band members.

The Rolling Stones concert chronology


A Steel Wheels pre-tour 'surprise show' took place on 12 August 1989 at Toad's Place in New Haven, Connecticut with a local act, Sons of Bob, opening the show for an audience of only 700 people who had purchased tickets for $3.01 apiece.[2] The official Steel Wheels Tour kicked off later that month at the now-demolished Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia. During the opening show in Philadelphia, the power went out during "Shattered", and caused a slight delay in the show. Jagger came out and spoke to the crowd during the delay. The Stones returned to Vancouver, B.C. in Canada and played two sold out concerts at B.C. Place Stadium. Fan reaction for tickets was unprecedented. One local radio station 99.3 The Fox even had a man (Andrew Korn) sit in front of the station in a bath tub filled with brown sugar and water for free tickets to the concert. Total attendance was 6.2 million.

The stage was designed by Mark Fisher with participation of Charlie Watts and Mick Jagger. Lighting design was by Patrick Woodroffe.

Canadian promoter Michael Cohl made his name buying the concert, sponsorship, merchandising, radio, television, and film rights to the Steel Wheels Tour. It became the most financially successful rock tour in history up to that time. Rival promoter Bill Graham, who also bid on the tour, later wrote that "Losing the Stones was like watching my favourite lover become a whore."

Performances from the tour were documented on the album Flashpoint, and the video Live at the Max, both released in 1991.

Opening acts for the tour included Living Colour, Dan Reed Network, Guns N' Roses and Gun.

In August 1990, an extra concert in Prague, Czechoslovakia, was added. Czechoslovakia had overthrown the Communist regime nine months earlier, and The Rolling Stones' concert was perceived as a symbolic end of the revolution. Czechoslovakia's new president Václav Havel, who was lifelong fan of the band, helped to arrange the event, and met the band at the Prague Castle before the show. The expenses were partially covered by Havel and by the Czechoslovak Ministry of industry. The attendance was over 100,000.[3][4] The band chose to donate all the revenues from this gig (over 4 million Czechoslovak korunas) to the Committee of Good Will, a charity run by Havel's wife Olga Havlová.[5]

14 On Fire

14 On Fire was a concert tour by The Rolling Stones, which started on 21 February 2014 in Abu Dhabi. It was a follow-up to the 50 & Counting tour which celebrated the 50th anniversary of the band. The tour was very much similar to the 50 & Counting just as the "Urban Jungle" portion of the Stones' Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle Tour in 1990 was similar to the "Steel Wheels" portion in 1989. 14 On Fire had the same stage design, setlist structure, and clothing/merchandise as 50 & Counting. Also, Mick Taylor was a guest throughout this tour as in 50 & Counting.

Almost Hear You Sigh

"Almost Hear You Sigh" is a Grammy-nominated song by The Rolling Stones from their 1989 album Steel Wheels, written by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Steve Jordan. The song was originally a contender for inclusion on Richards' first solo album, Talk Is Cheap, but he decided to play it for Jagger and Chris Kimsey the next year during recording sessions in Montserrat for the Steel Wheels album. With the exception of some lyrical alteration by Jagger, the single was left in its original form. The single, which was released in January 1990 and was the third single released from Steel Wheels, charted as number 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 (US), reaching the slightly higher position of 31 in the UK, and placed number 1 on the US Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for one week. USA Today music critic Edna Gundersen praised the track, noting that the vocals of Jagger and Richards' guitar playing sounded the best on the slower tracks from the album, including "Almost Hear You Sigh."

Ernie Watts

Ernest James Watts (born October 23, 1945) is an American jazz and rhythm and blues saxophonist who plays soprano, alto, and tenor saxophone. He has worked with Charlie Haden's Quartet West and toured with the Rolling Stones. On Frank Zappa's album The Grand Wazoo he played the "Mystery Horn", a straight-necked C melody saxophone. He played the notable saxophone riff on The One You Love by Glenn Frey.

Factory Girl (The Rolling Stones song)

"Factory Girl" is a song by the Rolling Stones which appears on their 1968 album Beggars Banquet.

It is very similar to an Appalachian folk tune, especially due to its minimal arrangement, featuring Mick Jagger on vocals, Keith Richards on acoustic guitar, Rocky Dijon on conga drums, Ric Grech of Family on fiddle/violin, Nicky Hopkins plays Mellotron using the mandolin sound (as indicated by bootleg recordings) and Charlie Watts on tabla.[1].

On his performance, Charlie Watts said in 2003, "On 'Factory Girl', I was doing something you shouldn't do, which is playing the tabla with sticks instead of trying to get that sound using your hand, which Indian tabla players do, though it's an extremely difficult technique and painful if you're not trained."The song is composed of lyrics musing on the singer's relationship with a young woman, all while he is waiting for her to come out to meet him;

Richards said of the song in 2003, "To me 'Factory Girl' felt something like 'Molly Malone', an Irish jig; one of those ancient Celtic things that emerge from time to time, or an Appalachian song. In those days I would just come up and play something, sitting around the room. I still do that today. If Mick gets interested I'll carry on working on it; if he doesn't look interested, I'll drop it, leave it and say, 'I'll work on it and maybe introduce it later.'"Jagger countered, saying, "The country songs, like 'Factory Girl' or 'Dear Doctor' on Beggars Banquet were really pastiche. There's a sense of humour in country music anyway, a way of looking at life in a humorous kind of way - and I think we were just acknowledging that element of the music. The 'country' songs we recorded later, like "Dead Flowers" on Sticky Fingers or "Far Away Eyes" on Some Girls are slightly different. The actual music is played completely straight, but it's me who's not going legit with the whole thing, because I think I'm a blues singer not a country singer."The song has been performed live in 1990, 1997 and 2013. A live recording from the Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle Tour made its way onto the 1991 live album Flashpoint. The song was also featured during the 1997 Bridges to Babylon Tour It was played in Los Angeles on 3 May 2013 and then a version of the song with different lyrics called "Glastonbury Girl" was performed at the Glastonbury festival on 29 June 2013.

Flashpoint (album)

Flashpoint is a live album by British rock band The Rolling Stones. It was recorded in 1989 and 1990 on the Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle Tour and released in 1991. It was the first live album by the group since 1982's Still Life. It was recorded using binaural recording. This gives the effect that the concert audience is behind the home listener. The audience cheer track was taken from the Rolling Stones' 1970 live album Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!, complete with an audience member shouting out a request: "'Paint It, Black', 'Paint It, Black', you devil". The two studio tracks on the album were the last for bassist and long-time member Bill Wyman as a Rolling Stone.

Gene Barge

Gene Barge (born August 9, 1926) is an American tenor and alto saxophonist, composer in several bands, and actor.

Live at the Hollywood Palladium, December 15, 1988

Live at the Hollywood Palladium, December 15, 1988 is a live album by Keith Richards and was released on 10 December 1991, in the United States and 24 February 1992, in the United Kingdom. Recorded during the brief American tour, the only leg of the shows, in support of Talk Is Cheap in late 1988, Richards is supported by a set of musicians and friends dubbed "The X-Pensive Winos". The Winos included Richards, Waddy Wachtel, Steve Jordan, Charley Drayton, Ivan Neville, and Sarah Dash. Longtime Rolling Stones contributor Bobby Keys also plays saxophone.

Half-joking at the end of the opening number that the Palladium's "a stage I've been thrown off many times", Richards was referring to Chuck Berry's concert there on January 21, 1972 when he tried to perform with his idol but was purportedly kicked off for playing too loudly, though Berry later claimed he'd not recognized Richards.

Richards' set during the tour was composed primarily of material from his solo debut album – he played ten of the eleven songs from the record – and also included many of his Rolling Stones vocal highlights, with "Happy", "Connection" and "Too Rude" appearing on the official release, though "Before They Make Me Run" and "Little T&A" only turned up on popular bootlegs such as L.A. Connection. And while Live at the Hollywood Palladium, December 15, 1988 does not include the full concert captured that evening, it does present "Time Is on My Side" sung by Sarah Dash. Unavailable is Richards singing "I Wanna Be Your Man", another distinct nod to the early days of the band he helped found in 1962.

Live at the Hollywood Palladium, December 15, 1988 was recorded, videotaped and ultimately released at the strong suggestion of Jane Rose, Richards tenured manager. Officially credited as Executive Producer, she encouraged Richards to consider the official release after showing the reluctant star bootlegs of inferior audio quality. The record dropped in North America for the Christmas buying season, in the wake of the Stones comeback Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle Tour, and well into pre-production for his second studio album Main Offender. Although it failed to chart, the album has sold over 100,000 copies in the United States alone.

The album includes several Rolling Stones songs, including "Too Rude" (from Dirty Work), "Time Is on My Side", "Happy" (from Exile on Main St.), and "Connection" (from Between the Buttons.)

Ollie E. Brown

Ollie E. Brown (sometimes credited as simply Ollie Brown) (born April 20, 1953) is an American drummer, percussionist, record producer, and high-school basketball coach. A prolific session musician, Brown has performed on over a hundred albums in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Brown was also half of the American dance-pop duo Ollie & Jerry, which had a Top 10 hit with "Breakin'... There's No Stopping Us" in 1984.

Play with Fire (The Rolling Stones song)

"Play with Fire" is a song by English rock band the Rolling Stones, originally released as B-side to the song "The Last Time". It was later included on the American release of their 1965 album Out of Our Heads.

It is one of a group of Stones-related companies based in the Netherlands for tax purposes.Promotone's headquarters is in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The company's activities are officially activities categorized as: environmental services, culture, recreation and other services.

Redlands, West Wittering

Redlands is a country house estate in West Wittering, West Sussex, owned by Keith Richards. Redlands is a Grade II listed building.In his autobiography, Richards describes purchasing the property in 1966:

We just spoke to each other the minute we saw each other. A thatched house, quite small, surrounded by a moat. I drove up there by mistake...I took a wrong turn and turned into Redlands. This guy walked out, very nice guy, and said, yeah? And I said, oh sorry, we've come to the wrong turning. He said, yes, you want to go Fishbourne way, and he said, are you looking for a house to buy? He was very pukka, an ex-commodore of the Royal Navy. And I said yes.

Redlands was the scene of the famous February 1967 police raid, the subsequent arrest of Richards and Mick Jagger and prison sentences for Jagger and Robert Fraser for drugs possession.

Rock and a Hard Place

"Rock and a Hard Place" is a song by the Rolling Stones from their 1989 album Steel Wheels. It is the second single from the album, and remains to this day the most recent Billboard top 40 hit by the band.

Salt of the Earth (song)

"Salt of the Earth" is the final song from the 1968 Rolling Stones album Beggars Banquet. Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the song includes an opening lead vocal by Richards. It is the second official track by the group to feature him on lead vocal (the first being "Something Happened to Me Yesterday" from Between the Buttons).

The Rolling Stones European Tour 1982

The Rolling Stones' European Tour 1982 was a concert tour of Europe to promote the album Tattoo You. It was in effect the European continuation of their long and successful 1981 US tour, and promoted by Bill Graham. It was during the Berlin concert on 8 June 1982 that thousands of balloons were released, inspiring a member of the audience, the guitarist Carlo Karges from the band Nena to write the song "99 Luftballons", which became a worldwide hit. The final show of the tour has been released as Live at Leeds; the tour was the last the Stones would conduct for seven years.

The Rolling Stones concerts

Since forming in 1962, the English rock band The Rolling Stones have performed more than two thousand concerts around the world, becoming one of the world's most popular live music attractions in the process.

In their early years of performing, the band would undertake numerous short tours of the United Kingdom and North America, playing in small- and medium-size venues to audiences composed largely of screaming girls. As time moved on, their audience base expanded (in terms of both size and diversity) and they would increasingly favour larger arenas and stadiums. For many years, the group would choose to play North America, Continental Europe, and the United Kingdom on a three-year rotating cycle.

Many audio recordings exist of Rolling Stones concerts, both official and unofficial. Seventeen official concert albums (eighteen in the US) have been released by the band; 6 of which were previously unreleased concert recordings released from 2011–2012, including the highly bootlegged Brussels Affair. Several of their concerts have also been filmed and released under a variety of titles, such as Stones in the Park which records the band's performance at Hyde Park in 1969.

The most famous and heavily documented of all the band's concerts was the Altamont Free Concert at the Altamont Speedway in 1969. For this concert, the biker gang Hells Angels provided security, which resulted in a fan, Meredith Hunter, being stabbed and beaten to death by the Angels after he drew a firearm. Part of the tour and the Altamont concert were documented in Albert and David Maysles' film Gimme Shelter. As a response to the growing popularity of bootleg recordings, the album Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! (UK 1; US 6) was released in 1970; it was declared by critic Lester Bangs to be

the best live album ever.The biggest concert the band gave was in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, during the "Bigger Bang Tour", in 2006.

The Wick

The Wick is a house in Richmond, Greater London, located at the corner of Nightingale Lane and Richmond Hill in Surrey. The house was at one time owned by actor Sir John Mills who used it as his family home for many years. Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones bought the house from Mills in June 1971.
