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.
