Setlist, Recap and Videos: Rolling Stones Tour Opener at Staples Center

ROLLING STONES TOUR OPENER FEATURES
LIVE DEBUT, BUST OUT AND PLENTY OF GUESTS

Legendary rock band The Rolling Stones began the latest leg of their 50 and Counting World Tour last night at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Stones littered the first show of the tour with guest spots, a live debut of a 33-year-old tune, a bust out and plenty of their most-beloved songs.

As they headed to the stage, The Stones were joined by the UCLA Marching Band for the show opener - "Get Off Of My Cloud." After rifling through hits such as "It's Only Rock and Roll (But I Like It)," "Paint It Black" and "Gimme Shelter," Stones front man Mick Jagger welcomed No Doubt front woman Gwen Stefani to duet on "Wild Horses." Jagger then strapped on acoustic to lead his mates through the first "Factory Girl" since October 16th, 1997. The surprises kept coming as The Rolling Stones finally performed "Emotional Rescue," which had previously never been played live.

Country music star Keith Urban kept the cavalcade of guest spots rolling as he sat in with The Stones on "Respectable." Next up was a two-shot of the group's "new" material - "Doom and Gloom" and "One More Shot." "Honky Tonk Woman" featured band introductions which gave way to the Keith Richards-led segment of "Before They Make Me Run" and "Happy." When this leg was announced, fans were extremely excited to see that former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor would be joining the band on tour. For those hoping he'd play a prominent role in the shows, last night was a disappointment as Taylor only sat in with his old mates on "Midnight Rambler."

The 20-song main set concluded with one greatest hit after another including "Miss You," "Start Me Up" and "Brown Sugar." As with previous 50 and Counting performances, The Stones were joined by a choir for "You Can't Always Get What You Want." In L.A. the CSULB Bob Cole Conservatory Chamber Choir augmented Mick Jagger and Co. on the Let It Bleed classic, which kicked off the three-song encore. "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "(I Can't Get No)Satisfaction" brought the tour opening show to a close.
