Earlier this week, The Rolling Stones made a triumphant return to the world stage with the first of their concerts to mark their 50th anniversary. On Sunday 26 November 2012 at London’s O2 Arena, the legendary band, with some help from ex-band mates Mick Taylor and Bill Wyman, along with Mary J. Blige and Jeff Beck, tore through a 23 song set-list encompassing songs from very old (I Wanna Be Your Man) to very new (Doom and Gloom).
For two and a half hours, the Stones delivered a show that belied their respective ages and the 20,000 fans lapped it all up.
How do The Stones do it?
It’s primarily due to front man, Mick Jagger.
Sir Mick is the undisputed business genius of the band. With a personal fortune estimated at over £200 million pounds Jagger has ensured that he and his band mates have made plenty of money to match their popularity.
Shine A Light when more than once Jagger is shown in conversation with Scorsese expressing concern about the likelihood that the fans at the show will be annoyed by the frequently moving cameras being used to shoot the film inside the theatre.
