Rolling Stones Play Secret Gig in Paris
Six hundred French fans of the Rolling Stones were treated to a secret one-hour show Thursday night at a Paris club.
The half-century old band cranked out hit after hit to the delighted audience 48 years to the day from their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan TV show, ad their first live show since 2007.
Club goers were able to enjoy the band in the seemingly intimate setting for a real bargain, the equivalent of $19.42. The next venues will be next month in London and are sold out. Tickets for Dec 13 and 15 in Newark are not yet on sale.
The Stones put a moratorium on any recording devices at the Paris gig, but we’ll still be pretty surprised if no audio or video ends up leaking — and in the meantime, you can look over the complete set list, which includes a number of hits, the new song ‘Doom and Gloom,’ and covers of songs by Muddy Waters and Nat ‘King’ Cole.
Update: look what just turned up – eight minutes of video!
