The Rolling Stones performed for the first time ever on June 7 in Landgraaf, The Netherlands at PinkPop Festival. The legendary British rockers strutted their stuff before a sold out crowd of 60,000 people at their second festival appearance on their European tour leg.
According to an update posted June 7 at their official website at RollingStones.com, The World's Greatest Rock N' Roll Band rocked the crowd with a 19-song setlist, kicking the evening off with their classic 1981 Tattoo You hit "Start Me Up." The festival appearance was the "Satisfaction" hitmaker's fifth date since resuming their 14 On Fire Tour on May 26 in Oslo, Norway.
The Stones' setlist has now settled in a fairly pat song order with a few tweaks. "Rocks Off," the opening track from 1972's Exile on Main St. was voted as online fan favourite. Their 1973 Goat's Head Soup hit single "Angie" made a reappearance, as well as their 1998 Bridges to Babylon single "Out of Control" with Keith Richards alternating between "Start Me Up" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash" as opening numbers.
Ex-Stone Mick Taylor performed as guest artist on "Midnight Rambler," as well as on the encore "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction." The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers also brought in the Dekoor Close-Harmony Choir as special guest backing vocalist on "You Can't Always Get What You Want." See below for the full setlist.
The Stones have had a hugely busy week. They played for the first time ever on June 4 in Israel and performed a sold out gig to 50,000 fans on June 1 in Zurich, Switzerland at Letzigrund Stadium. Tina Turner visited the band during the show and two Stones celebrated birthdays. Guitarist Ronnie Wood celebrated his 67th birthday on June 1, as well as his 39th anniversary as a member of The Rolling Stones while drummer Charlie Watts turned 73-years-old on June 2.
The Stones' next tour stop will be on Tues., June 10 in Berlin, Germany the Waldbühne. For more details, check out RollingStones.com.
