SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Rolling Stones launched their “Zip Code” North American tour in San Diego on Sunday with more than two hours of music.
In front of a sold-out crowd at Petco Park, the stalwart foursome rocked hit after hit from their 50-year catalog.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts opened with “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” before show opener Gary Clark Jr. joined them for “Bitch” from the band’s “Sticky Fingers” album, which is being reissued this week.
A long catwalk extending from the stage allowed Jagger to dance, run and skip into the center of the crowd. At one point, he ran full-speed down the catwalk and across the stage.
Songs in the high-energy set included “Honky-Tonk Women,” ”Midnight Rambler,” ”Gimme Shelter” and “Sympathy for the Devil.”
The chamber choir from California State University, Long Beach, joined the band onstage for “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” The band closed with “Satisfaction,” for which Jagger donned red glittery tuxedo tails.
The tour next moves to Ohio.
