Rolling Stones throw `surprise` mini concert
Los Angeles: Rock band Rolling Stones took to the stage for a surprise gig in Paris where they played a mini concert for about 600 fans.
The lucky fans got an hour-long sweaty performance Thursday night which marked the Mick Jagger-fronted band`s first gig since 2007.
Twelve hit songs were played during the intimate mini concert, which was set as a warm up for the British band before their highly-anticipated comeback shows in London and New Jersey.
They performed such numbers as "Shattered", "Miss You", "Tumbling Dice", "It`s Only Rock `n` Roll" and "Brown Sugar" among others. Two new songs, "One More Shot" and "Doom and Gloom", were also presented during the show.
The tiny gig marked the band`s first live performance since 2007 and it took place 48 years from the day they made their debut appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show".
The lucky fans only had to pay USD 19.42, which was far cheaper than the USD 172 to USD 650 ticket price for the upcoming Newark and London concerts.
The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. The quartet will release their greatest hits album "GRRR!" on November 13. After that, they will take the stage in scheduled shows at the O2 Arena in London on November 25 and 29, as well as at the Prudential Center in Newark on December 13 and 15.
