Alice And The Stones


It seems that Alice was rained on again when supporting The Stones last night in Louisville (at least it's unlikely to happen in the Phoenix heat!). The Lexington Herald has a short mention of Alice's performance in front of 50,000+ rock fans as does the Courier-Journal. RockRadio.com has a couple of quotes from Alice about The Stones shows.

Halifax 24 Sep 2006

Various reviews have appeared of last nights show with the Rolling Stones in Halifax but unsurprisingly they concentrate on The Stones' performance and barely a mention the other bands (so no point listing them). It does appear Alice went on during the early evening before Kanye West which seems rather odd, but then I've never heard of Kanye West before this so haven't a clue how big he may or may not be in the US. It does seem that Alice and the band got completely soaked in the pouring rain but still went over okay. From what little I've read the snake was there and Calico did her bit but beyond that I've seen no clues as to the setlist so if anyone has the details send them through. Jagger thanked all the opening acts by name during the Stones' set.
UPDATE: Thanks to Chris for the following:
"It rained for the whole set but Alice sounded really good. The band was soaked but sounded as tight as ever. Eric Singer was the only dry band member because a small tent structure was put over his drums and the amps. Alice threw out dirty diamonds during that song, he had his sword and money for 'Billion Dollar Babies', he actually threw his crutch into the crowd during the song 'I'm 18' . The stage setup was pretty much the same except for the coffin. Alice's makeup stayed on pretty good even with the rain. The set ran from 5 - 6 pm. They played some of Alice's songs before he hit the stage. Calico Cooper came out during the song go to hell - Alice disappeared under the drums. Very good set from the legend himself."
Setlist is now in the setlists section.
(Thanks Chris)

Alice has been spotted during an advert for Omega Watches currently running on TV presumably in the UK. I've not seen it yet.
