Band post running order online
The Rolling Stones have hinted at the possible running order of their London dates in November with a hand-written setlist posted on Twitter.
The image, appearing to show a full setlist of Rolling Stones tracks, was posted online shortly before the band announced their two dates at The 02 Arena in November.
Most of the group’s classic hits are featured, including ‘Paint It Black’ and ‘Honky Tonk Women’, but new songs ‘Doom And Gloom’ and ‘One More Shot’ from forthcoming compilation ‘GRRR!’ are nowhere to be seen.
The sheet of hand written paper features the following songs:
‘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’
Meanwhile, Mick Jagger has revealed that The Rolling Stones would have considered lasting 50 years a ‘nightmare’ when they first started playing together in 1962.
The band will celebrate their golden anniversary by headlining two shows at London’s 02 Arena in November. Chatting about the landmark year in the band’s history, Jagger told the The Evening Standard that he assumed the group would last two years maximum.
Jagger said: “You think it’s going to last a couple of years. At the time that seemed like a perfectly rational thing to say, why would you think it would go on for any longer? That was about the shelf life of a pop group at that time.”
Obviously at the beginning you didn’t have any inclination, it’s a nightmare idea really that you’d do anything for 50 years at that age. I think Rolling Stones the are kind of quite irreverent about it in a way. I don’t think we take it very seriously and we joke about it really.
Jagger went on to say that he is treating the live dates as a ‘fuck off moment’, stating: “It doesn’t exactly feel like your golden wedding. I think it kind of feels like a bit of a fuck off moment to be honest, and I don’t think we’ve laughed at it enough. I think one of the reasons is that we don’t really believe that amount of time has gone by so quickly, and here we are, still here.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Jagger said the group were rehearsing around 60 songs ahead of the live shows and that they had ‘been in touch’ with former bass player Bill Wyman about having him appear with them at some point in the show.
Ticket prices for the two London dates have been criticised by some fans priced out by the high charges, which range from £90 to £375. Guitarist Keith Richards admitted that he hates charging ‘over the top prices’ for tickets but expects to pocked around £16m from the shows.
