The Rolling Stones tour news

The Rolling Stones kicked off the second North American leg of their 'A Bigger Bang' world tour last night (September 20) where they started it a year ago - in Boston.

Despite returning to familiar climes, the audience at the Gillette Stadium were treated to a notably different setlist than the one the band had been playing in Europe this summer.

Among the surprises were a cover of The Temptations' 1966 hit 'Ain't To Proud To Beg' and a run through back catalogue songs like 'Monkey Man', 'Sweet Virginia', 'Under My Thumb' plus the Keith Richards-fronted 'You Got The Silver' and 'Little T&A'.

The band played:

'Paint It Black'
'Live With Me'
'Monkey Man'
'Sway'
'Sweet Virginia'
'Streets Of Love'
'Ain't Too Proud To Beg'
'Midnight Rambler'
'Tumbling Dice'
'You Got The Silver'
'Little T&A'
'Under My Thumb'
'Rough Justice'
'Jumping Jack Flash'
'Honky Tonk Women'
'Sympathy For The Devil'
'Start Me Up'
'(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction'
'Brown Sugar'
