Stones play secret Sticky show
LA club appearance featured classic album in full ahead of US tour
The Rolling Stones played a secret show in Los Angeles last night, ahead of their US tour.
Mick Jagger and co performed classic album Sticky Fingers in full – although not in order – alongside a collection of hits in the 1200-capacity Fonda Theatre.
The event sold out within minutes of being announced at noon.
Earlier this week frontman Jagger was asked whether he suffered from pre-show nerves, and replied: “I don’t really get nervous – I get excited. Before the first show of a tour sometimes I get anxious. Anything can go wrong, there’s things than can happen. But I’m not really nervous.”
Sticky Fingers is to be re-released next month in a range of formats including deluxe box set, super-deluxe box set, vinyl, CD and download. The Stones’ 15-date US tour begins on May 24 (Sunday).
