The Rolling Stones rock out Dublin
It was two night of classics at The Point last week when Mick and the boys rolled into town
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 15 Sep 2003
As you might possibly have heard, last week saw those most legendary of rockers, The Rolling Stones, playing two insanely sold-out shows at The Point.
Opening with a factory fresh 'Start Me Up', the boys ran through such classic moments as 'Angie', 'You Can't Always Get You Want', 'It's Only Rock 'N' Roll', 'Tumbling Dice', 'Sympathy For The Devil', 'Jumping Jack Flash' and the obligatory '(Can't Get No) Satisfaction'.
Following Andrea Corr's guest performance on Tuesday night, rumours were rife that the band would be joined on Thursday by Bono. The U2 man was in the crowd alright but sat it out as Mick, Keef, Ron and Charlie rolled back the years.
Needless to say, Hot Press lensman Roger Woolman was in the pit and took these shots of the boys in action.
We'll have more pictures and a review in the next issue of Hot Press, along with a report on what Mick and Ron got up to in Lillie's Bordello.
