THE ROLLING STONES Kick off Opening Night at STAPLES Center with 23 Song Set

The Rolling Stones kicked off their “50 and Counting” tour Friday, May 3, at STAPLES Center. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood played an extraordinary 23-song set to a sold out crowd. Fans got a special treat when they played “Emotional Rescue,” live for the very first time. “Honky Tonk Women,” “Start Me Up,” “Miss You,” “Tumbling Dice,” “Brown Sugar,” “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “Paint It Black,” and “Gimme Shelter” had fans on their feet throughout the entire show.
