Mulligan Stew July 15th 2023- The Summer Stews… The Final Tours

With thanks to Pete Townshend and The Who – lyric from My Generation 1966
Elton John.
The Eagles.
All announcing the final tour of their careers.
Elton finished an epic final tour Saturday in Stockholm.
910 million. In ticket sales.
But before you wave Bub Bye to music heroes of the 70’s and 80’s,  just know there are others out there still moving forward. 
Sting. Clapton. U2. Steely Dan. Fleetwood Mac,  McCartney and Ringo. Dylan. Joni.  Neil,  and The Rolling Stones.
Leading the charge and flying the flag is 73-year-old Bruce Springsteen. 
Bruce is on tour and the other night at the end of a 3-hour set in London’s Hyde Park he told the 63,000 fans about the band he first played with when he was 15.
“Death is like you’re standing on the railway tracks with an oncoming train bearing down on you, but it brings a clarity of thought. It pushes you to seize the day, to savour, with urgency, the time and the people you have left”. And then he sang his final song Last Man Standinga song about the passions of youth, the time in your life when “it’s all hellos” before they are outnumbered by “hard goodbyes”
Instead of trying desperately to be 25, as a much older version of himself, he sings about the years in between. What happened to the listener, the song and himself? Poignant, is a shared deep-felt emotion that will stay with many forever.
Having lived my life with their joyous noise I look forward to celebrating…
The Music – The Songs – The Memories with these songs and how the original lyrics have taken on new meaning. Especially Joni’s.
