Watch Footage of The Rolling Stones' First Gig in Five Years
Last night the Rolling Stones played their first show in nearly five years. Serving as a warm-up show for their the upcoming 50th Anniversary performances in London and Newark, the band played 12 songs spanning their career.
The Stones performed an intimate gig for 600 eager fans at the Le Trabendo club in Paris. The band made sure not to disappoint the crowd and played a vast array of their catalog. This included classics like “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Start Me Up” and “Shattered.” The band even performed new material for the crowd with one of their new tracks “Doom & Gloom.”After having a picture of anniversary shows’ set list leaked, the audience were asked not to use their cellphones or recording devices during the band’s performance.
The Stones will be trading the smaller venue for much larger arenas for their anniversary shows. The first will be held at London’s o2 Arena on Nov. 25 and 29. The band will then head stateside and will perform at Newark’s Prudiental Center on Dec. 13 and 15.
While use of cellphones were prohibited one fan managed to take an eight-minute video. Watch the video below and check out the set list that the Stones performed during their intimate gig.
