Rolling Stones Tease Fans With Setlist
Although it appears to have been removed from their Twitter feed, The Rolling Stones recently tweeted a pretty huge photographic hint about what they’ll be playing at their upcoming concerts in London and New Jersey.
The picture in question reveals a handwritten list of twenty-three songs, presumably tunes the band are rehearsing in preparation for their 50th Anniversary shows, which will be going down at the O2 Arena in London on November 25 and November 29 and at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on December 13 and December 15.
In a recent interview, Jagger revealed that The Stones have been rehearsing a staggering sixty songs for the upcoming mini-tour, so the photographed setlist is a mere slice of the pie, but it promises a set heavy on classics: “Honky Tonk Woman”, “Tumbling Dice”, “Paint it Black” and “Midnight Rambler” are among the numbers listed.
Whatever they end up playing, it sounds like the band is ready to have fun with its anniversary party.
“I think the Rolling Stones are kind of quite irreverent about it in a way,” Jagger explained. “I don’t think we take it very seriously and we joke about it really.”
Irreverent they may be, but Jagger seems to appreciate the continued support from Stones fans: “It’s great people are still interested,” he said. “It’s very touching that people want to know about us, because normally you’d expect you’d have to create a big sort of noise about this to get anyone interested in a band that’s been around for 50 years and that has essentially become part of the furniture.”
The leaked setlist:
“She’s So Cold”
“You Got Me Rocking”
“All Down The Line”
“Honky Tonk Woman”
“Beast Of Burden”
“Can’t Always Get”
“It’s All Over Now”
“Little Red Rooster”
“Not Fade Away”
“She’s So Cold”
“Worried About You”
“Paint It Black”
“The Last Time”
