According to a news release posted June 4 at their official website at RollingStones.com, The World's Greatest Rock N' Roll Band pumped out a 19-song setlist. Setlist change ups included the addition of their 1973 "Goat's Head Soup" hit single "Angie," as well as 1966 "Aftermath" hit "Paint It Black." Both songs made their first appearances since the European 14 On Fire Tour leg kicked off last month in Oslo, Norway along with their 1965 single "Get Off My Cloud," which was voted as online fan favourite.

Ex-Stone Mick Taylor performed as guest artist on "Midnight Rambler," as well as on the encore "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction." The Stones also brought in the Buchman Mehta School of Music as special guest backing vocalist on "You Can't Always Get What You Want." See below for the full setlist.
