All pirates gigs are great and this one was no exception. I was surprised that Mick came on stage with a black stratocaster (that normally stays by the side of the stage as a spare) instead of the trusted telecaster we all know and love. (n.b Mick's Tele was in for repair and promised back in time but wasn't ready when he went to collect it). I needn't have worried in the end it is not the lump of wood but who is playing it that matters. Mick and co were great The stand out songs were many but "I can tell" "Goin back home" "Please don't touch" "Honey hush" and "Shakin all over" were all fantastic but the truly oustanding performance was the encore of "Baby please don't go" The patter was also great especially the philosophical thoughts of Professor Green on the ageing process. "You're not old till your dead". I can't trhink of another band that still plays with such balls after five decades at it.
