On July 1, 2014, the Rolling Stones performed their classic song "All Down the Line" (from the 1972 album "Exile on Main Street"), in a song request voted for by fans, at the Stones' concert in Stockholm at the Tele2 Arena. The concert was part of the Rolling Stones' "14 on Fire" tour. According to the Rolling Stones' official website: "The show marked the bands’ 26th ever show in Sweden, and the sold-out crowd of 40,000 fans were treated to a 19-song set, which included ‘All Down The Line,’ voted for by over 90,000 fans online in a very close result." The report did not say which song came in second place.
The other songs that fans chose from in the online poll were "Get Off of My Cloud," "Street Fighting Man," "Dead Flowers," "Let's Spend the Night Together" and "Bitch." "All Down the Line" has been performed at least once in many Rolling Stones tours since 1972.
Meanwhile, according to the Rolling Stones' official website, an exhibit of Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood's artwork will be on display for a limited time (July 1 to July 5, 2014) at Walmark Gallery in Stockholm. Wood is a prolific illustrator and painter. Much of his artwork consists of portraits of the Rolling Stones and various members of the band. (Click here to watch a video of Wood talking about his Stockholm art exhibit.)
According to the website: "Ronnie is also showing two unique pieces from a series of monotypes with applied paint, chosen to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Elvis’s first recording at the famous Sun studios. Each piece is cosigned by Ronnie and Scotty Moore, Elvis’s legendary guitarist, Also, previously unseen are Ronnie’s sketches from the February rehearsals of the Rolling Stones’ '14 on Fire' Asian tour, inspired by Ronnie’s favourite impressionist, Jean-Baptiste-Cammile Corot."
On May 26, 2014 in Oslo, Norway, the Rolling Stones gave their first concert since the death of L'Wren Scott, who was Mick Jagger's girlfriend since 2001. Scott committed suicide in her New York City apartment on March 17, 2014. She was found hanged from a doorknob. The Rolling Stones' "14 on Fire" tour of 2014 went on hiatus after Scott's death. The tour resumed in Oslo, Norway at Telenor Arena on May 26.
As previously reported, the Rolling Stones' "14 on Fire" tour dates in Australia and New Zealand were postponed because of Scott's death. The concerts in Australia and New Zealand were originally supposed to take place from March 19 to April 5, 2014. The Rolling Stones have since announced the rescheduled concerts in Australia and New Zealand for their "14 on Fire" tour.
The new tour dates are from Oct. 25 to Nov. 22, 2014, and they include added concerts in the Australian cities of Perth (on Nov. 1, 2014) and Pokolbin (on Nov. 15, 2014). See the revised tour dates at the end of this article. Special guests for these concerts have also been confirmed as Jimmy Barnes for the Adelaide show and the Hunters & Collectors for the Auckland show.
Critics' reviews of the tour have been mostly positive.
Former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, who was a special guest on the Rolling Stones' "50 and Counting" concerts in 2012 and 2013, has been a special guest on the Rolling Stones "14 on Fire" tour.
