The Rolling Stones have still got it. The legendary band staged the first of five concerts in London on Sunday night and did not disappoint. Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood played at the 02 Arena.
Fans who paid the expensive tickets for the show were reportedly not disappointed. Music critics were united in saying that the rockers’ return was a huge success.
“They have a combined age of 273, but the four Stones remain an extraordinary live proposition,” John Aizlewood wrote in the Evening Standard.
“Jagger, camp and louche, was a preening but energetic peacock; Richards was as cool as a man sporting a red hairband and turquoise jacket could possibly be; Ronnie Wood was a chirpy mascot and that ocean of serenity Charlie Watts showed the tiniest of drum kits can make the biggest noise," he said.
It is understood The Rolling Stones’ front man thanked the fans at one point saying: “It's amazing that we're still doing this, and it's amazing that you're still buying our records and coming to our shows. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
