The Rolling Stones performed a private concert hosted by Robert Kraft, in Foxboro, Mass. The show marked the first time the band has performed since the death of legendary drummer Charlie Watts who passed away on Aug. 24.
The set took place under a tent on the field of Gillette Stadium. The Rolling Stones performed 14 songs, which included back-to-back debuts. First, they let loose a cover of The Chi‐Lites’ “Troubles A-Comin’,” after which, they debuted their 2019 release, “Living in a Ghost Town.” The former of the two debuts is set to release on the 40th-anniversary reissue of the band’s 1981 record, Tattoo You on Oct. 22.
On Aug. 5, just weeks before Watt’s Death, it was announced that Steve Jordan would replace the Rolling Stones drummer on their 13-date U.S. tour. The 64-year-old has been performing in Keith Richards’ side project the X-Pensive Winos since 1980 and appears on the Rolling Stones’ 1986 release Dirty Work. Jordan also is a member of the John Mayer Trio.
The band played many hits off their extensive and historic discography including “Under My Thumb,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Sympathy for the Devil,” and more. The Rolling Stones also played their 1966 track “19th Nervous Breakdown” for the first time since 2005. They closed with “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”
The Rolling Stones will commence their U.S. tour on Sept. 26 in St. Louis.
