The Rolling Stones kicked off their 50 & Counting tour tonight at the Los Angeles STAPLES Center. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood played an extraordinary 23-song set to a sold out crowd. Fans got a special treat when they played ‘Emotional Rescue’, live for the very first time. ’Honky Tonk Women’, ‘Start Me Up’, ‘Miss You’, ‘Tumbling Dice’, ‘Brown Sugar’, ‘It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll’, ‘Paint It Black’, and ‘Gimme Shelter’ had fans on their feet throughout the entire show.
The band was joined on stage by special guests, Gwen Stefani on a moving rendition of “Wild Horses” and Keith Urban on a smoking performance of “Respectable.” Mick Taylor, who will be a guest throughout the tour, played with the Stones on “Midnight Rambler.” The Rolling Stones ended their two hour plus show with a three-song encore of “Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash and “Satisfaction.”
The tour will continue onto Oakland, San Jose, Las Vegas, Anaheim, Toronto, Chicago, Montreal, Boston and Philadelphia.
