The Rolling Stones surprise on North American return

Boston gets some setlist surprises

The Rolling Stones surprise on North American return
The Rolling Stones kicked off the second North American leg of their ‘A Bigger Bang’ world tour last night (September 20) where they started it a year ago – in Boston.

Despite returning to familiar climes, the audience at the Gillette Stadium were treated to a notably different setlist than the one the band had been playing in Europe this summer.

Among the surprises were a cover of The Temptations’ 1966 hit ‘Ain’t To Proud To Beg’ and a run through back catalogue songs like ‘Monkey Man’, ‘Sweet Virginia’, ‘Under My Thumb’ plus the Keith Richards-fronted ‘You Got The Silver’ and ‘Little T&A’.

The band played:

‘Paint It Black’
‘Live With Me’
‘Monkey Man’
‘Sweet Virginia’
‘Streets Of Love’
‘Ain’t Too Proud To Beg’
‘Midnight Rambler’
‘Tumbling Dice’
‘You Got The Silver’
‘Little T&A’
‘Under My Thumb’
‘Rough Justice’
‘Jumping Jack Flash’
‘Honky Tonk Women’
‘Sympathy For The Devil’
‘Start Me Up’
‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’
‘Brown Sugar’
