The Rolling Stones Play Surprise Show At Fonda Theatre
The Rolling Stones played a special surprise show at The Fonda Theatre last night in Los Angeles. They played an hour and a half set that featured the entire original Sticky Fingers album along with several of their other big hits.
So this is our first show of our tour. Tonight we’re doing something we’ve never done before… We’re going to do the whole of ‘Sticky Fingers.’
Their set list consisted of their songs “Start Me Up,” “Sway,” “Dead Flowers,” “Wild Horses,” “Sister Morphine,” “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” and “I Got The Blues” just to name a few.
The intimate L.A. performance was a celebration of the June 9th re-issue of the Sticky Fingers album, which is one of the most revered albums in the band’s storied catalog. The whole album was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards themselves.
There was a star worthy crowd filled with celebs like Jack Nicholson, Bruce Willis, Harry Styles, Joe Pesci, Andy Garcia, Ben Harper and Patricia Arquette all who took over the balcony V.I.P. area.
The band even included an encore performance in tribute to the late BB King. They played their version of “Rock Me Baby,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” and finished with Otis Redding’s “Can’t Turn You Loose.” Jagger remembers his good friend on stage.
He was one of our favorite guitarists, a wonderful guy who played with us on a number of occasions.
The Stones will start their 15-city North American ZIP CODE Tour at Petco Park in San Diego this coming Sunday.
At this rate, I don’t see these guys stopping anytime soon!
