Stones play secret Sticky show

The Rolling Stones played a secret show in Los Angeles last night, ahead of their US tour.

Mick Jagger and co performed classic album Sticky Fingers in full – although not in order – alongside a collection of hits in the 1200-capacity Fonda Theatre.

The event sold out within minutes of being announced at noon.

Earlier this week frontman Jagger was asked whether he suffered from pre-show nerves, and replied: “I don’t really get nervous – I get excited. Before the first show of a tour sometimes I get anxious. Anything can go wrong, there’s things than can happen. But I’m not really nervous.”

Sticky Fingers is to be re-released next month in a range of formats including deluxe box set, super-deluxe box set, vinyl, CD and download. The Stones’ 15-date US tour begins on May 24 (Sunday).

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
