A Bigger Bang
, the Rolling Stones European Tour 2007 rolls to Budapest
, Hungary’s Puskas Ferenc Stadium on Friday, July 20, 2007. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood will rock the Budapest night away with their legendary staging and music, which has been writing rock history for the past forty years.
Various sources expect a 40-60,000 strong audience, and Hungarian fans seem pleased with the choice of The Rolling Stones to bring the indie/Britpop prominent British band, The Charlatans
to Budapest as their warm-up band. The Charlatans are: Tim Burgess (vocals), Mark Collins (Guitars), Martin Blunt (bass), Jon Brookes (drums), and Tony Rogers (keyboards).
What to get ready for
The IORR (It’s Only Rock and Roll) report from the Stade de France, Paris concert (June 16, 2007) suggests that
a great venue, a fired up audience, and a great rock and roll band are bound to add up to a fantastic show
"Can't You Hear Me Knocking" was one of the best versions they /The Rolling Stones/ have done ever. Charlie did his minimalistic drumming. Barely touching his drums, yet keeping the beat going. Keith did his equally minimalistic riffs, just to add the undertone to what was coming. Mick did the great harmonica. Bobby did a wonderful long and emotional saxophone solo, and Ronnie, he ruled the song. The crowd and the excitement grew with the song and as you looked around you knew you were part of a great great song and a great great night.
Show us what you got, Budapest!
