The Rolling Stones are nearing the end of their Australian tour after playing in the Hunter Valley this weekend. The final Stones show will be next Tuesday in Brisbane.
Like the Sydney show earlier in the week the band gave the audience a three songs Keith Richards showcase with Keith on lead vocals for ‘You Got The Silver’, ‘Before They Make Me Run’ and ‘Can’t Be Seen’.
The Stones have only ever featured Keith out front for three songs three times, including this show. The other two times were last Wednesday in Sydney and before than in 2006 in Vancouver. After blowing out last weekend’s Hanging Rock show, its thought that Keith’s extra duties were to help Mick Jagger ease back in to the set after his throat infection.
‘Dead Flowers’ won the audience request slot from the band’s website. Keyboard player and musical director Chuck Leavell told Noise11.com that the requests are genuine and the band always pick the song most voted by the audience for each show.
