The Rolling Stones Live At The Palais Royale 2002

Back in 2002, before the Rolling Stones headed out on their "Licks" tour, the band descended on Toronto for rehearsals at the Masonic Hall. They took a break from rehearsals to play a surprise warm-up gig at the Palais Royale Ballroom in front of a crowd of less than 1000 fans and invited guests. If you were lucky enough to score a $10 ticket to this club show, you were treated to an amazing set that resurrected some nice gems and rarely performed material. A loose, raw set filled with mistakes (that's why it's a warm-up gig, right?), but the band seemed to be enjoying themselves. I'm sure if the Stones had their way a tour of smaller venues and clubs would be a nice way for a comeback, but with money talking and the amount of people that would like to see the band at mass (in arenas and stadiums), that's probably not gonna happen anytime soon.

Here's a report and review about the show.
