The tribute to Italy by the Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones concert that took place on Saturday, September 23, closed the 20th edition of the Lucca Summer Festival with close to 60 thousand spectators and the suggestive backdrop of the historic Lucca Walls, has officially made history.
The only Italian date of the “No Filter Tour”, which began in Hamburg on September 9 and will have its last stopover in Paris on October 22, certainly did not disappoint the extremely high expectations.
In practically perfect Italian, Mick Jagger debuts on the Lucca stage and urges a wildly enthusiastic audience on.
The quartet, for the very first time in concert in Tuscany, excites emotions, rhythm, energy. The ambience dreams are made of.
Together with their timeless hits, an unexpected tribute to Italy with a true jewel: "Le mie lacrime", Italian version of “As tears go by” from 1965, among the first original compositions of the British group (the previous were above all cover songs), brought on the stage in Italian just once before in Milan in 2006.
September 23 is a date that will go down in history. And nothing will ever be the same again.
