The Rolling Stones performed their fourth Australian tour date on Nov. 5 at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena. The legendary British rockers knocked out at 19-song setlist, which included their 1968 Beggar’s Banquet single “Street Fighting Man,” to a crowd of over 12, 500 spectators.
According to a new release posted Nov. 1 at their official website at RollingStones.com, over 59,000 fans participated in an online poll to vote “Street Fighting Man” as Melbourne’s favourite Stones song. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have not performed the song on the tour since June 19 in Dusseldorf, Germany at Esprit Arena.
The “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” hitmakers also rotated their Sticky Fingers ballad “Wild Horses” for the second time on the current leg. In other highlights, ex-Stone Mick Taylor made a guest appearance on “Midnight Rambler,” as well as on the encore “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” Local guest artists The Consort of Melbourne were recruited to perform with The Stones on “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” See below for the full setlist.
