They played it at their show in Columbus, Ohio
The Rolling Stones performed “Hang On Sloopy” in concert for the first time since 1966 on Saturday night [May 30,2015].
The band played the song at Ohio Stadium, Columbus as part of their Zip Code tour of North America.
The song, taken to No 1 by The McCoys in 1965, is an anthem at sporting events throughout Ohio.
It was also a regular fixture in Stones’ setlists in 1966, but has been unplayed by the band since.
Inside the issue, Mick Jagger shares his memories of recording Sticky Fingers.
Meanwhile, British tabloids including The Sun and The Mirror are reporting that the Stones are in negotiations to play Knebworth this summer; they last played the country house in 1976.
