The Rolling Stones kept their rescheduled U.S. tour rolling on Monday night as the legendary UK rockers wrapped up the East Coast leg of their outing with a performance at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ, that included the group’s first live rendition of “Harlem Shuffle” in nearly 30 years.
Last night’s show opened with Stones staple “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” followed up “Tumbling Dice” a couple songs later, before the band busted out their cover of Bob & Earl’s “Harlem Shuffle,” which appeared on the Stones’ 1986 album, Dirty Work. Yesterday was their first take on the song since Aug. 25, 1990, and frontman Mick Jagger appropriately noted (after shouting out multiple New York–area locations besides Harlem), “We’re gonna do this song that’s sort of locally—vaguely—based, and we haven’t done this for ages, so be forgiving if you can.”
The performance also included Stones classics like “Sympathy for the Devil,” “Paint It Black,” “Start Me Up” and set-closer “Brown Sugar,” plus encore renditions of “Gimme Shelter” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”
Check out the full setlist below, along with fan-shot video of “Harlem Shuffle.” The Rolling Stones continue their U.S. dates this weekend with a Saturday show in Denver.
