FRANCE

France is alright, as long as you can get out.
Like I've been in France longer than I've ever stayed
in England. There's fuck-all live music here, there's
Jacques Brel and electronic music. Even the
accordion players are dead.
- Mick Jagger, 1971

  L'Olympia, Paris, France, October 20, 1964


[Paris, October 1964.] We went to France eventually and did a show at the Olympia where the Beatles had done very badly. They did a very unsuccessful series of shows with a terrible bill. Typically French, you know, they knew that everyone loved the Beatles, so they didn't. And we did this series of shows at the Olympia which was great.
- Mick Jagger

A 2-inch scar above the right eye is Rolling Stone Mick Jagger's souvenir of a European tour. He flew back to London last night with a black eye and the scar, and told what happened. Somebody threw a chair at me while I was singing "Satisfaction" in Marseilles. They do it when they get excited, he added. It was just enthusiasm - they go a bit wild. It's stupid behavior but it's a risk we take. I did the whole British tour over here similarly plastered up. The only thing I was concerned about was that Chrissie (Shrimpton) shouldn't get some exaggerated newpaper report before I got back to show there was no real damage.

  Urban Jungle Tour set, Europe, 1990


The Steel Wheels set was dead in daylight. Part of its appeal lay in the way that the dormant structure started to light up and glow as soon as the house lights went down. The whole thing came to life when the Stones hit the stage. Urban Jungle (1990), on the other hand, had to work visually unaided in the early evening daylight of the European venues, hence the garishly bright colours on the enormous hanging scrims. Rather than having colour slowly becoming apparent in the lighting, the dynamism of the band carried the show until darkness descended and the lighting effects kicked in, adding a whole new dimension to the performance.
