The Rolling Stones Warm Up with Some Bust Outs and Covers
The Rolling Stones busted out a couple of tunes and played a few covers during last night’s surprise warm-up gig at Echoplex in Los Angeles. The band started off their set with “You Got Me Rocking” before playing a few other less common songs like “Respectable” and their first “Street Fighting Man” since 2003. The Stones then knocked out a string of covers including Otis Redding’s “That’s How Strong My Love Is,” the Temptations’ “Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)” and their first performance of Chuck Berry’s “Little Queenie” since 1998. Toward the end of the set Mick Taylor took the stage for a take on Robert Johnson’s “Love In Vain,” followed by “Midnight Rambler”.
The Rolling Stones will officially kick off the next leg of their 50 and Counting tour on May 3 at the Stalpes Center in Los Angeles.
