The Rolling Stones gave their fans a treat performing their 1967 classic, “Ruby Tuesday,” during their second stop for the Sixty Tour in Munich, Germany on June 5.
“Ruby Tuesday” was added to their set list after it was selected by fans in an advance online poll held the night before the show. The band also performed tour debuts of two other songs: 1967’s “Connection,” which featured Keith Richards on vocals and their 1972 classic, “Rocks Off.”
The Munich stop followed the 60th anniversary tour launch in Madrid, Spain on June 1. The recent shows marks as the Stones’ first European series since the death of icon Charlie Watts, who passed away last August at the age of 80.
For this tour, the band was again joined by Watts’ replacement, Steve Jordan, who were hand-picked by the late drummer to sit in for him on last year’s No Filter US tour while recovering from an undisclosed surgery prior to his passing.
Meanwhile, the Stones have also just recently released an expanded and remastered reissue of their 2003 concert film, “Licked Live in NYC” on June 10. Their Europe trek will include two performances at London’s Hyde Park in June and July and will wrap up on July 31 in Stockholm, Sweden.
Watch the fan-filmed footage of their performance below. Some of the comments read:
“My favorite song of all times. It combines everything. So happy it won the audience vote for yesterday’s concert.”
“Thanks for playing this song!”
