The Rolling Stones Dust Off Loving Cup With Karl Denson

Rock legends The Rolling Stones debuted “Loving Cup” in 1969 and included the song on Exile On Main St. in 1972. When first unveiled, it was thought “Loving Cup” would be a staple of Stones concerts, but it didn’t work out that way…not even close. In fact, the band only performed “Loving Cup” 21 times between 1969 and 2006. “Loving Cup” finally returned to action after nearly eight years on Saturday night in Perth, Australia; as part of a tour that features Karl Denson on sax.

Five songs into the show, Mick Jagger took the mic to introduce what usually is the request The Stones play based on fan voting. “About now, we usually put some songs up online for you to vote for. Charlie wanted to do ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head,’ but we scrapped that and instead we’re going to do ‘Loving Cup.'” With that, the band lit into just the 22nd “Loving Cup” in Rolling Stones history and first since 2006. JamBase favorite Karl Denson was part of the horn section that added to the bustout.

Saturday night’s Rolling Stones show, which took place at Perth Arena in Perth, Australia also included another somewhat rare Exile track -“All Down The Line.” The tour’s special guest, guitarist Mick Taylor, took his nightly turn on stage for both “Midnight Rambler” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”
