The Rolling Stones will soon return to the live stage following Mick Jagger’s successful heart surgery that required the legendary band to cancel their North American tour, which was rescheduled earlier this week. A video of Jagger dancing was shared by the 75-year-old frontman, who also can be seen playing guitar in new clip that he captioned, “Rocking out new tunes.”
As Mick continues to get into touring shape, this edition of Saturday Stream presents a Spotify Playlist of The Rolling Stones performing live throughout their storied career. Presented chronologically, the playlist begins with Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman and Brian Jones performing live in 1965.
While Jagger, Richards and Watts remained as core members of the band, the playlist also features early-1970s shows with Mick Taylor on guitar and regular touring member Ian Stewart on keyboards which he played with the group until his death in 1985. Current guitarist Ronnie Wood, who replaced Taylor in 1975, is prominently featured, including on the playlist’s closing show, a 2016 performance in Havana, Cuba.
Present at various points of the playlist are such talented auxiliary members as Bobby Keys, Billy Preston, Chuck Leavell, Ian McLagan, Bernard Fowler, Darryl Jones, Karl Denson and more. Spend time going through the decades of The Rolling Stones performing live via the Spotify Playlist below:
