What does it sound like?:
The Stones continue to raid their vaults for this archive release of another show from their Bridges To Babylon world tour, with this, the follow up to the Bridges In Bremen set. Recorded on the final night of a five night residency at the huge River Plate Stadium in April 1998, the set list unsurprisingly bears many similarities to its predecessor, but as well as the old favourites such as Satisfaction, Let’s Spend The Night Together, Gimme Shelter, Miss You and It’s Only Rock n Roll, the band showcase some of their better songs from that period like Flip The Switch and Saint of Me. There’s also the traditional twosome from Keith mid-show, this time Thief In The Night and Wanna Hold You. The USP of this show though is the appearance of Bob Dylan to duet on Like A Rolling Stone, covered by the band on their 1995 Stripped album. The band really reveals their full majesty though with the closing fusillade of Sympathy for The Devil, Tumbling Dice, Honky Tonk Women, Start Me Up, Jumping Jack Flash, You Can’t Always Get What You Want and Brown Sugar. Another great show, well filmed and recorded, in front of a wildly ecstatic crowd, and pleasing to hear a cracking version of Sister Morphine too.
What does it all *mean*?
South American audiences must be some of the most vociferous in the world!
