The Rolling Stones performed by surprise at a NY club
The Rolling Stones made a surprise appearance at the 650-seat New York club Racket NYC to celebrate the release of their new album Hackney Diamonds, the band’s first album of new material in 18 years, in a performance attended by joined Lady Gaga.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood took the stage to perform seven songs from the new album and also hits such as Shattered, Angry, Whole Wide World, Tumbling Dice, Bite My Head Off and Jumpin’ Jack Flash, according to their record label. Lady Gaga joined the band on stage to perform the single Sweet Sounds Of Heaven to a packed house and dedicated audience. Fifty-nine years after Decca Records proclaimed that England’s newest hitmakers had arrived on American soil, the Rolling Stones returned to the United States on Thursday (Oct. 19) to release their new album, Hackney Diamonds.
“We always seem to release our albums in New York,” Mick Jagger told attendees at Racket NYC, an intimate venue in Manhattan that took over the Highline Ballroom space. “We have done it in an airship. We did it on a flatbed truck going down Fifth Avenue,” he said, reading from a Teleprompter. “We were missing releases so much that we had to make another album and come back and re-release it.” Paul McCartney’s collaboration is especially exciting and symbolic, due to the original rivalry, but it is not the first time that a former Beatle has joined forces with the Rolling Stones. Lennon and McCartney provided backing vocals on Rollling Stones’ We Love You in 1967, although they were not officially credited at the time. The following year, for a BBC special (The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus), Lennon collaborated again with Jagger’s band, forming a supergroup with more musicians, Eric Clapton among them.
Hackney Diamonds, co-produced by Andrew Watt, has been a long time coming, with the rock n’ roll legends cooking it up since their 2016 blues covers album, Blue & Lonesome. It is their 26th album released in the United States, and their first since the death of their drummer Charlie Watts. But the release party was full of the reckless energy and being in the moment that characterizes classic LPs from Out of Our Heads to Sticky Fingers.
During their seven-song set, which began with “Shattered,” it became abundantly clear that the Rolling Stones certainly needed to make another album, if only to play it live. While Diamonds pieces are unlikely to become live staples like “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and “Tumbling Dice” (both performed at the show), tackling new songs like “Angry” and “Bite My Head Off ” clearly gave Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood the hopeful expectation that comes with performing material that isn’t easy, “Flash” style. As a result, they dedicated themselves to selling the new material.
For a small performance by the Stones at a New York venue before a few hundred people, the crowd was naturally dotted with celebrities: Jimmy Fallon, Mary Kate Olsen, Chris Rock, Daniel Craig, Elvis Costello, Diana Krall and Questlove (the DJ pre and post show) were all present. Costello nodded sagely to the music and exchanged good words with his wife Krall; Fallon nodded and sang; Olsen took a smoke break.
For the first three songs of the night, Lady Gaga was on the sidelines, but when the Stones came out for their encore, she took a starring role, performing their new collaboration “Sweet Sounds of Heaven” in what was easily the highlight of the night. . Wearing a red and black sequined outfit, Lady Gaga belted out Jagger on the gospel-tinged song. You might not expect an 80-year-old man who underwent heart valve replacement surgery to go toe-to-toe with one of the most talented living performers of our era, but Jagger was clearly thrilled by the crowd’s energy, enthusiasm of Gaga and the adrenaline of performing new material.
The long-awaited release of Hackney Diamonds last Friday puts an end to the long musical silence of almost two decades without new songs from the Rolling Stones, whose latest album has already garnered promising first reviews. The group already played surprise by mysteriously announcing the release of the album with a false advertisement in a newspaper.
The album was released this Friday, October 20 (some stores opened at midnight to put it on sale), and features collaborations with Elton John and Paul McCartney. In addition, it has also been learned that as part of the promotion of the long-awaited album and within Spotify’s sponsorship agreement with FC Barcelona, the team will wear t-shirts with the Rollingston logo of the mouth protruding from the tongue in the match against Real Madrid on December 28. October. Jagger, Richards and Wood have taken photos showing the shirt.
Who knows how much longer the Stones can keep going, but based on their album release party in New York, we’re lucky that England’s veteran rockers haven’t called it quits yet.
