The Rolling Stones kicked off their run of European No Filter tour dates at Dublin, Ireland’s Croke Park last night, and the band decided to dig into their catalog a bit to bust out two tunes for the first time in well over a decade.
After starting out with Stones classics “Sympathy for the Devil,” “Tumbling Dice” and “Paint It Black,” plus two cuts from their 2016 album of blues covers, Blue & Lonesome, Mick Jagger and company offered up their first live rendition of “Neighbours” since August 2003. The tune comes from the band’s 1981 album Tattoo You.
Later in the set, the legendary rockers reached back again when Keith Richards stepped up to the mic with an acoustic guitar to take lead vocals on “The Worst,” off 1994’s Voodoo Lounge, with Ronnie Wood backing him up on a pedal steel. The song made its first appearance in a Stones set since October 2005.
Watch videos of those bustouts and some of the more common Stones favorites from Ireland below, along with the full setlist from the tour opener. The band will play two nights at London Stadium May 22 and 25.
