The Rolling Stones Cover ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ In Coventry

British rockers The Rolling Stones brought their No Filter Tour to their native England for a concert Saturday night at Ricoh Arena in Coventry. The legendary band performed a rarely played cover of a long-affiliated Bob Dylan favorite.

The fourth show of The Rolling Stones’ tour began with “Street Fighting Man” and “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like It).” Frontman Mick Jagger next led takes on “Tumbling Dice” and “Paint It Black.” The first cover of the evening, the Delta blues standard “Ride ‘Em on Down” that was recorded for 2016’s Blue & Lonesome came ahead of the fan request portion of the evening.

Prior to the concert, The Stones offered the choice of either “Heartbreaker,” “She’s So Cold,” “Dancing With Mr. D” or “Like A Rolling Stone.” According to Setlist.fm statistics, Saturday’s fan-selected rendition of Dylan’s “Like A Rolling Stone” was just the seventh performance by The Stones since 2003.

Jagger took time during band introductions to note it was drummer Charlie Watts’ birthday and that the day before was guitarist Ronnie Wood’s. The rest of the set include several Stones’ hits such as “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “Happy” led by guitarist Keith Richards, “Sympathy for the Devil,” “Start Me Up,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and “Brown Sugar.” The encore was a pairing of “Gimmie Shelter” with “I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”
