Rolling Stones Live Licks Tour
In 1964, the Rolling Stones embarked on this ‘Live Licks Tour’ in New York, following the release of their debut album.
To mark 40 years since that tour, the band once again performed in the Big Apple in 2003, in Madison Square Garden.
This tour of course saw the Stones’ line up of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Darryl Jones, alongside the late Charlie Watts.
It also featured Lisa Fischer (backing vocals), Bobby Keys (saxophone), Tim Ries (saxophone, keyboards), Michael Davis (trombone) Blondie Chaplin (backing vocals, acoustic guitar/ percussion), Chuck Leavell (keyboards, backing vocals), and Kent Smith (trumpet).
This tour also saw the Rolling Stones perform tracks ‘Midnight Rambler’, ‘It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like It)’, ‘Angie’. Sheryl Crow also joined the band on stage for a rendition of ‘Honky Tonk Women’.
