Shine A Light: Rolling Stones

Our friend and unofficial photographer/videographer Hal Hansen went down to the Beacon Theater last night for the first of two Scorsese-filmed Rolling Stones shows, and he’ll weigh in with an update soon. As a preview, here’s what he’s got:

“That Loving Cup was far and away the musical highlight. Other highlights included high-fiving Keith Olberman, shaking Elvis Costello’s hand and being about 10 feet away from Bill & Hillary Clinton as they walked in. Just a totally absurd scene that I had no business being a part of.” Hal also sent me a text message after walking past Angelica Huston, with whom I love dearly.

  1. I’m assuming that the Elder Handstand peed all over himself when Loving Cup started. Is that an accurate assessment?

  2. Funny story about last night. I met double H at the venue last night before the show began. Before the meet up I did a few laps around the venue.

    On 75th between Amsterdam and Columbus were a bunch of tourbus looking movie trailers. I passed by one and looked in the window and Jack White was staring back at me.

    At that point Double H called and I told him to meet me at that corner I had a surprise for him. We passed the trailer like 40 times just looking at Jack White. Good times!
