stones tour party


#TIMELESSTIME ➪ The infamous summer 1972 tour through the U.S. and Canada is recognized by Stones fans worldwide as arguably the bands greatest ever, and holds a place in the collective memoirs of rock lore and popular imagination as the masterpiece spectacle of indoor triumph, outdoor maelstrom, and backstage debauch. This photo is from their final show of the tour, which happened to take place on Mick’s 29th birthday, July 26, 1972, in New York’s Madison Square Garden. The second one is from one of their concert which took place on July 18, 1972, in Boston. © Joe Sia.

One night we were bored in Toronto. So Keith and I got out the Yellow Pages and looked up escort services. We called up an agency telling them we were two businessmen dealing insurance from Omaha in town for a convention (laughs). We said we needed two lady escorts for dinner. We told them to send over two of their finest. We even taped the conversation. These chicks show up expecting guys in three-piece business suits. When they saw us they were taken aback. It ended up as a mild evening of ligthweight debauchery.” ― Bobby Keys on Fun in Toronto with Keith Richards.
