Rolling Stones play track not heard live since 1973 at Tokyo show

Band are currently on their 14 On Fire tour in Asia

The Rolling Stones this week performed a track that last appeared on their setlists more than 40 years ago.

The band are currently on the Asia Pacific leg of their 14 On Fire tour, which includes three shows in Tokyo.

It was at Tokyo Dome on Tuesday (March 4) that the band performed the rarely heard ‘Silver Train’, which appeared on the album ‘Goats Head Soup’ and was released as the B-side to ‘Angie’. Former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor appeared as a guest performer on the track.

The track won the “fan vote”, a fixture of Stones setlists in which local fans nominate a track via social media. As the vote was closely run, the band also performed the runner-up, ‘You Got Me Rocking’, from 1994’s ‘Voodoo Lounge’.

After Tokyo, the band will travel to Macau, then various cities in Australia and New Zealand.
