History

This was like no other tour the band had yet undertaken. Away from the stage since April 1967, and the U.S. since July 1966, they found that live performing had moved on. Instead of performing in small- and medium-size venues to audiences of screaming girls, they were booked into arenas with packed but more mature crowds ready to listen and move and amplification systems to match (as they would later say, it was the first time they could hear what they were playing). The tour was notable for being Mick Taylor's first with the Stones, having replaced Brian Jones shortly before Jones' July death.

The Stones were introduced as they took the stage as "The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World," a title they were glad to claim and would zealously strive to keep for decades to come. Material was mostly from 1968's Beggars Banquet album and the not-quite-released-yet Let It Bleed. The performance itself featured the Stones showmanship that would become familiar: Charlie Watts businesslike drumming leavened by an occasional wry smile, Bill Wyman's undertaker persona on bass, the guitar interplay of Mick Taylor with Keith Richards, and most of all Mick Jagger's dancing, strutting, leering, preening frontman antics.
