Ronnie Wood has admitted that The Rolling Stones have still not decided the running order of their first London show this weekend.

The iconic band, who will play at London's O2 Arena on Sunday (November 25) have performed two warm-up shows in France but are yet to give hints as to just what they will perform live when they step out onto the stage for the first of two UK shows this weekend. Speaking to the Evening Standard at a gala in memory of Amy Winehouse in London this week, Wood said: "We've been thinking long and hard about the setlist but to be honest we still haven’t finalised it. You forget how hard it is. But I couldn’t miss this tonight — it’s such an amazing cause."

He added: "It's intense but that’s what we do — people have paid a lot of money for their tickets and we have to get it right."

Earlier this week it was confirmed that former band members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor will join the Stones onstage for their forthcoming London shows. The pair will play with the band for the first time in over 20 years for the concerts at the O2 Arena on Sunday (November 25) and Thursday (29).

Bass player Wyman played with the Stones from 1962 until 1992 while guitarist Taylor played with the Stones from 1969 to 1974. Both were interviewed in the recent official 50th anniversary documentary Crossfire Hurricane, in which Taylor revealed that one of the reasons he left the band had been down to his heroin addiction.
