The Stones were at the top of their game in 1973… one of the best tours ever.On Feb 24 1973 they played Western Australia Cricket Ground in Perth, Australia, and a great sounding “stereo soundboard” bootleg turned up.. in 1987.
The Rolling Stones Pacific Tour 1973
Exile on Main St.
18 January 1973
27 February 1973
The Rolling Stones Pacific Tour 1973 was a concert tour of countries bordering the Pacific Ocean in January and February 1973 by The Rolling Stones. The tour is sometimes referred to as the Winter Tour 1973. However this title is misleading, as much of it took place in the Southern Hemisphere, where it was summer at the time.
Personally I knew that I hadn’t been in presence of such greatness since the three shows at The Brixton Academy in south London in March 1995. …. That night’s standout among a long list of standouts, was for this fan Tryin’ To Get To Heaven, which Bob somehow channelled from a realm of divine and poetic musicality down to us mere mortals…

..And what came next ..was both breath-taking and mind blowing: a stunning, dare it be said definitive version of Tryin’ To Get To Heaven. Bob’s vocal were fragile, tender, controlled – yet always on the edge of breaking. His piano playing just holding a few soft chords and the band proving their worth with another superb backing. In one song Bob gave us everything our hearts were longing for.
