“50 and Counting has been pretty amazing so far,” said Mick Jagger in a press release. “We did a few shows in London and New York last year and had such a good time that we thought let’s do some more. It’s a good show. Lots of the classic stuff everyone wants to hear with a few little gems tucked in here and there. The stage is shaped like lips and goes off into the venue so I get to run around in the crowd. It’s great fun to be able to get that close to the audience.”

He also said, “From day one at rehearsals it sounded so fresh. You could tell that everybody was dying to get their teeth into it. It was like…open the gates…let us out!” said Richards. “Cause man, it is the life and blood of us to play in front of people.”
