The Rolling Stones warmed up for their upcoming North American tour with an intimate club gig in L.A. Wednesday night. Entertainment Weekly reports that the legendary band — including Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts — played the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood, which holds about 1,200 fans.
The group performed its entire 1971 album “Sticky Fingers,” along with crowd pleasers such as “Start Me Up” and “When the Whip Comes Down.”
“Later, they busted out ‘All Down The Line.’ Jagger was in a playful mood: he put the mic in the front of his pants to free himself to dance,” the story notes.
Jagger introduced the “Sticky Fingers” portion of the show by saying, “So tonight we’re doing something we’ve never done before,” and commenting on vinyl records, saying: “We used to make these things that go round and round with cardboard covers!”
The “Sticky Fingers” is being reissued, and the Stones are about to embark on the Zip Code Tour.
