The Rolling Stones are opening their vault for two live shows in their new From the Vault series.

The first, Hampton Coliseum – Live in 1981, will be out on November 3.

Are The Rolling Stones Planning Flight 505 For Australia?

Could The Rolling Stones be planning on performing the rarity ‘Flight 505’ on their upcoming Australian tour? It sure looks that way by the hint in the Aussie tour video this week.

43 seconds into the video the rehearsal door swings open and a list of songs appears with the never before played ‘Flight 505’ on a list with the more common ‘Fool To Cry, ‘Get Off My Cloud’ and ‘Gimme Shelter’.

In the lead-up to the start of the 14 on Fire The Stones used the rare ‘Out of Control’ as the soundtrack to the video. That song turned up a few times on the 2014 setlist.

‘Flight 505’ was from the Stones 4th album ‘Aftermath’ in 1966. To our knowledge it has never been performed live by the Rolling Stones. The song was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, it was not a single, and did not appear on any Stones compilation.
‘Emotional Rescue’, the 1980 hit for the band was performed for the very first time on the current tour.

A Review: Match-fit Rolling Stones return to Australia in blistering form

THE Rolling Stones have arrived like a crossfire hurricane. Their tour is called 14 on Fire and, for once, the description matches the product. With their March dates cancelled because of the tragic death of Mick Jagger’s girlfriend L’Wren Scott, the band returned to performing in Europe in late May, continuing into July. Now, taking the stage at the Adelaide Oval for the first show of their rescheduled Australian tour, the Stones are thoroughly match-fit. 
From the first familiar chords of Jumping Jack Flash, struck with magisterial authority by Keith Richards, the Rolling Stones command the giant stadium stage. Writ large on a massive triptych of video screens, decorated like art nouveau picture frames, the live video feed of the band combines with a succession of animations, file photos, and copious other images for more than two hours of sight and sound immersion.

Always in the frame are the three originals — Jagger, Richards and Charlie Watts — joined by the 40-year new boy Ronnie Wood. Let’s just say this once. Three of the band are over 70, and Wood is not far off. The cameras reveal every crag and wrinkle — but also the energy, ease and sheer style of the world’s greatest rock band. It’s a grandiose title, but after more than 50 years, most of them at the top of the game, it is theirs to claim.

They dip into their catalogue and it’s a very deep bag. Let’s Spend the Night Together, with a photo-collage of the band from the 1960s, Tumbling Dice and a plaintive version of Wild Horses. There is a new song, Doom and Gloom, and, the only cover, Bob Dylan’s legendary Like a Rolling Stone, features Richards’s guitar, Jagger on harmonica and keyboard player Chuck Leavell. Richards adds his ragged vocals for Happy and Can’t Be Seen, with Keith, Charlie and bassist Darryl Jones in splendid accord.

An extended version of Midnight Rambler is a highlight, with guest guitarist Mick Taylor reminding us of the golden period of Sticky Fingers and Let it Bleed. Slim as a whip, brimming with theatrics, Jagger is brilliant, traversing the stage, playing with the lyrics like a cat with a mouse. Gimme Shelter, with a soaring vocal solo from Lisa Fischer, is also a knockout.

Sympathy for the Devil is a cauldron of red light and stage smoke, and Brown Sugar another band tour de force. This show excels at every level: the detail, precision, pace and spectacle is exhilarating. The Stones close with You Can’t Always Get What You Want and (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, a sentiment with which 54,000 delighted punters totally disagree.

Perth, Wednesday and Saturday; Melbourne, November 5; Hanging Rock, November 8; Sydney, November 12; Hunter Valley, November 15; Brisbane, November 18.
