The Rolling Stones play another secret show in Paris

The Rolling Stones played another secret gig in Paris on October 29.

The Stones played 12 tracks at the 1,800 capacity venue le Théâtre Mogador, including "Tumbling Dice", "It's Only Rock 'N' Roll (But I Like It)" and "Honky Tonk Women". They also played new single "Doom And Gloom". Watch fan-filmed footage of them arriving at the venue below.

The gig follows the band's first performance in over five years last Thursday (October 25) at the tiny 600-capacity La Trabendo venue.

Ronnie Wood previously revealed to NME that the band would perform tiny warm-up gigs under their Cockroaches guise during their breaks from rehearsing in Paris.

"There's going to be little club gigs that we’re gonna surprise ourselves to do," he said. "We’ll bung a few in next week or the week after, so look out for any Cockroaches gigs or whatever! I don’t know who we’ll be billed as but we’ll turn up somewhere and put a few to the test. Tiny, 200, 300 people kind of places."

The Rolling Stones are set to play two dates at London's O2 Arena on November 25 and 29 to celebrate the their 50th anniversary. They will also be playing two nights at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey in the US on December 13 and 15.

To coincide with the dates, the The Stones will release a brand new greatest hits compilation in November titled GRRR!
