STILL GREAT BUT FADING OH SO SLIGHTLY,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Biggest Bang Box [DVD]  (DVD)
I awaited this release with eager anticipation. Saw them in Sheffield and they were excellent despite the torrent of rain. By any other rock band this would warrant 5 stars but I keep comparing to Four Flicks and the 2002 licks tour. If you have both you may see what I mean. There just somehow appears to be an element of going through the motions and the Austin show to my mind is fairly lacklustre and not a good representation of the tour (unlike the Rio show which is excellent)
I think that Four Flicks with its 3 different type of shows is more interesting and dynamic (the Paris theatre show in particular.) As stated in the title I do feel there is a slight element of Mick fading in his vocals and generally the rest of the band in their playing. Maybe time will tell that this mega band peaked in the Licks tour. But hey it's still the Stones!
